Illegal Mexican Alien Who Murdered Cop Was Not Deported Because Of California’s Sanctuary Law


Biden Would Immediately End All Deportations


Stanislaus County Sheriff Adam Christianson said that Mendoza had two previous drunken driving arrests. But authorities couldn’t deport him due to California’s sanctuary law, which prevents cooperation between local police and federal immigration authorities. 

Illegal immigrant who murdered California cop gets plea deal

Virgen Mendoza was sentenced to life without parole

By Paul Best | Fox News

Paulo Virgen Mendoza, a 33-year-old Mexican national in the country illegally, pleaded guilty Thursday to murdering a California police officer nearly two years ago. He was sentenced to life without parole. 

Virgen Mendoza shot and killed 33-year-old Cpl. Ronil Singh, an immigrant born in Fiji, after being pulled over for suspected drunk driving early Dec. 26, 2018. 

The district attorney’s office said earlier this year that it would seek the death penalty if Virgen Mendoza was convicted.

Singh’s widow, Anamika Singh, said she thinks Mendoza deserved the death penalty, but would accept life without parole. 

She brought her young child, who was just 5 months when his dad was killed, to the witness stand but took him back eventually because he was crying. 

“I have lost my biggest support system. My son will never be able to receive his father’s love,” she said during emotional remarks Thursday.

“[My husband] wanted his son to be a police officer just like him, and now these are all shattered dreams.”

Stanislaus County Sheriff Adam Christianson said that Mendoza had two previous drunken driving arrests. But authorities couldn’t deport him due to California’s sanctuary law, which prevents cooperation between local police and federal immigration authorities. 

President Trump got involved in the proceedings, tweeting after Singh was murdered that it is “time to get tough on Border Security” and “Build the Wall!”

Five other people, including two of Mendoza’s brothers and his girlfriend, were convicted of trying to help him flee the United States immediately after the murder.
