In the early hours of January 16, gunmen forced their way into a home in the town of Goshen, California, near Fresno. The gunmen shot Rosa Parraz, a 72-year-old grandmother, as she slept in her bed, and also gunned down Eladio Parraz Jr, 52, Jennifer Analla, 50, and nineteen-year-old Marcos Parraz.
Elyssa Parraz, 16, fled the scene with her child Nycholas, only 10 months old. Both fell to gunfire, and Tulare County Sheriff Mike Boudreaux, told reporters what happened, based on a forensic report.
“It was clear that the shooters stood over the top of the 16-year-old mother and fired rounds into her head,” Boudreaux said. “The 10-month-old infant also suffered from the same attack.”
As the sheriff explained, “I know for a fact that this young lady was running for her life, and I know for a fact that there was no reason to kill her, but they did. I know for a fact that this 10-month-old baby was riding on the comfort of his mother. There was no reason to shoot that baby. And they did it.” This criminal savagery failed to draw a response from the Biden White House, which had been quick with a statement in other cases.
Last November, for example, Biden denounced “this devastating attack by a gunman wielding a long rifle at an LGBTQI+ nightclub in Colorado Springs.” Such attacks happen “far too often,” Biden said, and “yet another community in America has been torn apart by gun violence.” Biden called for “an assault weapons ban to get weapons of war off America’s streets,” and “Jill and I are praying for the families of the five people killed in Colorado Springs last night.”
In April of 2022, Biden denounced “gun violence” that claimed six lives in Sacramento, California. “We know these lives were not the only lives impacted by gun violence last night. And we equally mourn for those victims and families who do not make national headlines.”
The Sacramento shootings also drew a response from California Gov. Gavin Newson.
“Sadly, we once again mourn the lives lost and for those injured in yet another horrendous act of gun violence,” said Newsom in a statement. “Jennifer and I send our heartfelt condolences to the family, friends, and to the wider community impacted by this terrible tragedy.” As the governor contended, “the scourge of gun violence continues to be a crisis in our country, and we must resolve to bring an end to this carnage.”
In a February 23, 2022 statement, Gov. Newsom said “I am heartbroken and outraged by the death of a young woman living at a homeless encampment near a freeway onramp in San Francisco.” The woman was killed in a fire and “there is nothing humane or compassionate about allowing tragedies like this to occur. We have a moral imperative to do better.”
If Gov. Newsom was heartbroken and outraged by the execution of Elyssa Parraz, Nycholas Parraz and four others, he failed to make it known. At the time of this writing, no official statement has appeared. That left state attorney general Rob Bonta.
Last October, Bonta issued a statement praising police for apprehension of a suspect for a series of homicides in Stockton. “When we face a challenge or threat to the safety of Californians, we stand stronger when we stand together,” Bonta said, and California communities “can feel comfort in knowing that this suspect is now in custody.”
At this writing, Bonta has issued no statement on the murder of six in Goshen, where no suspects are in custody. The reason for the silence lies in the probable identity of the murderers.
According to Sheriff Boudreaux, the executions were similar in to “high-ranking gang affiliations” but “we don’t know if it is a gang-affiliated shooting, a cartel affiliation or if the two are combined.” The sheriff did say the cartel is well known in the Central Valley and throughout the state. For all but the willfully blind, it’s MS-13, according to the Fresno Bee “like no other gang.”
In Mendota, about an hour from Goshen, MS-13 launched a “reign of terror” with at least 14 murders from 2015 to 2017. Before Joanna Soloria Maya could testify in a murder case, gang members hacked the woman to death and dumped her mutilated body outside an apartment complex. The victim’s sister Jannette told the Fresno Bee that MS-13 was “killing people out there, like they are animals,” and it would continue because law enforcement “can’t stop it.” Or won’t stop it.
For California’s ruling Democrats, MS-13 has not been a priority. Federal authorities took the lead against the gang and at a Fresno press conference, then-Attorney General Xavier Becerra said his operations were not based on “labels” and the arrests were not based on “status.”
President Trump said “We are going to destroy the vile criminal cartel, MS-13, and many other criminal gangs. We will find you, we will jail you and we will deport you.” So, by the dictates of Trump Derangement Syndrome (TDS) the gang’s crimes must be ignored or downplayed.
That explains the silence of Biden, Newsom and Bonta to the execution of Elyssa Parraz, Nycholas Parraz and four others. According to sheriff Boudreaux, they were all shot in the head, and “in places that the shooter would know that quick death would occur.”
At this writing, the shooters are nowhere to be found and Sheriff Boudreaux says “some of our investigation has already led outside the county.” Trouble is, “we have a very unsecure border right now. There’s a lot of back and forth when it comes to the cartels and free movement up and down the state and across the border.” Biden and Newsom like it that way.
Under California’s sanctuary law, false-documented foreign nationals, even the worst criminals among them, are a privileged, protected class. Under California’s “motor voter” law, illegals are automatically registered to vote when they get a driver’s license. Illegals serve as an imported electorate and new clients for the welfare state bureaucracy. This is the model Democrats want for the entire country, and there’s something else people should know.
Before he left office, Gov. Jerry Brown signed Senate Bill 1391. Under this measure, anyone under the age of 16 can murder any number of people, be tried only in juvenile court, and gain release at the age of 25. So if the murderers of Elyssa Parraz, Nycholas Parraz and the others were under 16, that would apply to them. If the murderers were full adults, they would also have grounds for confidence.
Perhaps the worst criminal in California history was previously deported Mexican national Juan Corona. In the 1970s Corona murdered and mutilated at least 25 people, not a single one of them Mexican. Juan Corona died at Corcoran State Prison on March 4, 2019, at the age of 85, while serving 25 concurrent life sentences. That same month, Gov. Newsom reprieved 737 convicted murders on California’s death row.
The governor’s beneficiaries included Richard Allen Davis, who kidnapped and killed twelve-year-old Polly Klaas, and “Tool Box Killer” Lawrence Bittaker, who raped and killed five teenage girls in 1979 after torturing them with pliers and screwdrivers. In California, a criminal can take many lives in the most depraved fashion, keep his own life, and live into old age at taxpayer expense.
In California, a gang hit man can execute a mother and her infant child, and Gov. Newsom has nothing to say. Capital punishment still exists in California, with a difference. The executioners are the guilty ones and the victims are innocent. Elyssa and Nycholas Parraz are but the latest examples.
Meanwhile, a suspected MS-13 member, 17, has been charged with the killing of 20-year-old Kayla Hamilton, an autistic woman found strangled to death last July in Aberdeen, Maryland.
As it turns out, the Biden administration allowed the murder suspect into the country as an Unaccompanied Alien Child (UAC). No word of a background check on the UAC and his sponsors, and whether the UAC was released into the United States despite the gang affiliation.
In 2017, Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) launched Victims of Immigration Crime Engagement (VOICE) so crime victims could obtain case information only available to ICE. The Biden Junta shut down VOICE in 2021.
By some accounts, more than five million illegals have entered the United States on Biden’s watch. The Delaware Democrat compares the “migrants” to Jews fleeing the Holocaust, but his administration has no clue to their identity, background and intentions.
Expect more murders like Kayla Hamilton, strangled to death in Aberdeen, Maryland. Expect more executions like Elyssa Parraz, and Nycholas Parraz, shot dead in Goshen, California. If anybody thought Newsom and Biden were accessories, it would be hard to blame them.
As Kayla’s mother Tammy Nobles explains, “As a mom, you just want to keep your kids safe.”
