The gang related activity in Livermore is just being ignored by the police because of this sanctuary nonsense. Walk along the Arroyo Mocho trail and every bridge and overpass is tagged with gang graffiti.

I just heard on the radio the individuals arrested for aiding and abetting, who are also here illegally, cannot be reported to ICE because of the Sanctuary Laws. It is really time for the citizens of California to wake up and clean out swamp in Sacramento. Everyone who was in the legislature from the Governor on down when SB54 was passed shares in the blame for the death of this fine young man.

The DNC doesn't care how many innocent people are slaughtered by Illegals as long as they get the votes.

Pete - Please read the article. Arriaga's brother, Conrado Mendoza lives in Chowchilla. It was due to good police work that he was arrested in Livermore.

He was probably in Livermore to meet gang members.

Martin, I think what Pete was referring to was the sanctuary city laws that allow unchecked and unvetted immigrants to flow into our country, some of which are gang members. So there is a parallel here. I think what a lot of people are asking is, how many more Americans need to be slaughtered before those who were sworn to protect us start doing their jobs? Part of that job is to make sure bad people aren't flowing over the border with the good people, and the only way to do that is by vetting them.

Livermore never declared itself a sanctuary city. Alameda County did.

Martin, Governor Brown declared California a sanctuary state. The point is, there are those who are actively encouraging unchecked immigration and with that brings an element of criminality. Immigrants are supposed to go through a vetting process. It's been federal law for generations.

My point is that people who are not even supposed to be here are given protected status and the innocent are the ones hurt. My nephew is a police officer and he told me that they are told are to take a hands off approach to illegals as it is a political hot potato. Livermore is swimming in gangs and parts of Pleasanton as well. Now the police are getting killed and the politicans say nothing at all. Deport everyone including citizens if they can't obey the laws. Speaking of Chowcilla, most of those cities in the central valley are now being run by illegals and gang members at that. Keep you head on a swivel and stay yellow at all times.

@Wall:

He wasn't just visiting Livermore-he lived there. How I know this? He was my son's neighbor.

[removed] This killer was arrested previously on DUIs prior to sanctuary laws. In other words, law enforcement had every opportunity to deal with this guy's immigration status before sanctuary laws existed and they still did nothing. Don't blame sanctuary laws for the failures of police.

What is a Sanctuary City?
The term sanctuary city is a generalization used to describe the cities that do not use city funding to implement federal immigration laws. These cities have decided by legal regulation, internal memo or force of habit not to inquire about the immigration status of persons with whom they come into contact. Cities across the United States have adopted sanctuary policies; some sanctuary policies are even implemented statewide.

Does that Mean an Illegal Immigrant cannot be deported from a Sanctuary City?
No, while local law enforcement may choose not to inquire about the immigration status of individuals, such ordinances cannot ban the federal government from enforcing immigration law within the jurisdiction.

To repeat the obvious: "Cities that do not use city funding to implement federal immigration laws".

Informed, you are minimizing the issue. It is much farther reaching than that.If you are truly as informed as your name suggests, then you know that already. Lets at least be honest here shall we?
