Man who shot Cali officer was here illegally, protected in a sanctuary city

A man arrested and accused of shooting a California police officer was previously in jail and was in the country illegally, according to the Houston Chronicle and KCRA.

The California Highway Patrol arrested 51-year-old Guadalupe Lopez-Herrera of Dos Palos on Thursday after a 20-hour manhunt and a nearly hour-long high-speed chase.

He was in custody earlier this year on charges of domestic violence. According to Merced County Sheriff Vern Warnke, he reportedly threatened the lives of his wife’s family.

The chase began when police tried to serve a warrant for another domestic violence claim. A sheriff’s sergeant was shot in the leg but is expected to recover.

“This person is not a legal citizen within the United States. We had him in our custody in January of this year. And because of the folks in Sacramento limiting our ability to cooperate with ICE, we could not turn him over,” Warnke said at a press conference on Thursday.

California loves it’s illegal alien criminals. They apparently wanted to hold onto this accused abuser. They are far more supportive of criminals than the police.

    • If you’re going that route then a wiser choice would be to remove California’s statehood and revert it to an unincorporated territory like Guam, the Virgin Islands, the Northern Mariana Islands, American Samoa, and Puerto Rico in which residents can no longer vote in presidential elections and which the U.S. Constitution applies only partially. Then launch “Operation Wetback II” in the state. Any radical leftists who don’t like it can emigrate abroad, go along for the ride with the illegal aliens.

  • Suppose a police agency wanted to have a training exercise that was so realistic, that onlookers couldn’t tell that it was an exercise and not an actual event. Suppose they could pre-surround the staging area with layers of plainclothes personnel to keep well-intentioned private citizens from inadvertently interfering. If you were in a public place and a man with an AR-15 or AK-47 type rifle entered and began shooting, would you hang around to see whether the rifle had a blank adaptor on the end of the barrel? Would you watch carefully to see that spent cases were actually being ejected from the rifle–to be certain it wasn’t a movie prop like may be used for training or would you simply run for your life? If you saw a total stranger lying on the floor near the “gunman”, would you roll that person over to see their wounds and try to treat them, or run away and call for help when you got outside? Suppose what you thought was blood seeping through their clothing was an exploding dye pack like used in action movies? What if the agency in question didn’t even tell the management of the public venue that they were having the training exercise? Suppose they never even told the media? Suppose you saw the “relatives’ of some of those “killed” during the training exercise on TV news and they were crying, yet their eyes had no tears in them? Suppose the agency reported the “event” as if it were real…

  • If I was a policeman in a sanctuary city, I’d either go on strike or quit. There’s no use of protecting citizens if the local government, the court and jail system and many of these citizens are against police. All these rabid people who are for the progressive agenda and who want to give unlimited rights to many of these infiltrators should be left alone to fend for themselves.

  • As a Californian, I’d love to see the federal government implement “Operation Wetback II” and sweep through the SouthWest and West forcibly deporting ALL illegal aliens. I’d also like to see federal prosecution of politicians and government bureaucrats who illegally protect illegal aliens. This all in addition to an end in birthright citizenship for the progeny of foreigners, an end to all social services for illegal aliens, an end to chain migration, prosecution of employers who hire illegal aliens knowingly, the implementation of nationwide E-Verify, and build that wall!

  • Let them all live in Nancy Pelosi’s gated community, I think she would change her stance quickly on illegals in our country

  • This illegal alien shooting a cop is nothingburger news, the real story is Trump used a black Sharpie to change the Hurricane Dorian map to possibly hit Alabama, this is serious stuff folks !!!!!!!

  • 20% of the county is illegals. The whole state is swimming with “undocumented” who have plenty of fake documents, some of which they may use to work “legally” but many are used to get benefits they are not legally entitled to. (They can vote too, and the cons at the DMV auto-registered an unknown number wehn they gave them their illegal alien driver’s licenses.)
    The news never even touches on the subject anymore but the linchpin of the whole thing is the “anchor babies” once they have one they can collect AFDC “in lieu of their citizen child” and they’re Off to the Races; illegal gangs dominate the public housing, go in and out of the jails, all “protected” status “minorities” –in counties that long ago turned “majority minority” (really means majority Mexican).
