California – Once again, an illegal alien has killed an American citizen and sanctuary policies in California are being exposed for the dangers they pose.
Shauna White, speaking on Tucker Carlson Tonight, blasted Oakland, CA mayor Libby Schaaf, who famously in 2018 leaked information of an upcoming U.S Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) raid in the area in a press release, which was also posted on Twitter.
White’s daughter Madisyn was shot in a road rage incident after getting into a fender bender. The suspect, Roberto Martinez, 19 is an illegal alien who had been living in Hayward, CA.
“When she got out of the car to take care of it with the insurance, he [Martinez] became aggressive,” White said. “He’s well known over there to rob people…when she didn’t have anything else to offer him, he attacked her. He punched her in her face and continued to hit her.”
Madisyn was eventually able to get away and returned to her car and was attempting to film Martinez’s license plate when he fatally shot her.
“He let out 10 rounds on my daughter. He killed her,” an obviously distraught White said. “He just killed her.”
White further claimed that Schaaf cares only about “lining her own pockets and her own agenda.”
Martinez allegedly fled to Mexico after the killing. White also claimed that a photo of the suspect that could assist investigators has not been released due to Schaff’s “personal agenda.”
Schaff, another left-wing leader from California, claimed at the time that she tipped off ICE, that she believed it her “duty and moral obligation as Mayor to give those families fair warning when that threat appears imminent.”

Before Schaff’s bluster, law enforcement authorities in Northern California had said they would not assist federal authorities in apprehending illegal aliens. That came on the heels of a California law—SB54–that limited inter-agency cooperation, and in effect made California a “sanctuary state.”
Oakland’s City Council also passed a resolution that ended all cooperation between local police and federal immigration officials. At the time Thomas Homan, head of ICE blasted California and called the Oakland resolution “unconscionable” and a “danger for local communities.”
California is of course no stranger to illegal aliens who shouldn’t be here in the first place, committing crimes.
On December 26, 2018, Ronil Singh, a 33-year-old police officer from Newman, CA. pulled over a car for suspicion of drunk driving. The operator of the car, Gustavo Perez Arriaga, 32, shot Singh, killing him. Singh managed to get a radio call out, “shots fired”, however when his fellow officers arrived at the scene, they found Singh with a gunshot wound. He was transported to a nearby hospital and later died.
Stanislaus County Sheriff Adam Christianson said at the time that the killing was a “senseless act of violence” during a press conference, and also confirmed the illegal alien status of the officer’s killer.
“Unlike Ron who immigrated to this country lawfully and legally to pursue his lifelong career of public safety, public service in being a police officer, this suspect is in our country illegally,” Christianson said.
The week before Singh’s murder, Gustavo Garcia, 36, an illegal alien shot and killed 51-year-old Rocky Jones of Visalia, CA at a gas station. Surveillance video showed the suspect and Jones spoke briefly prior to the killing, but they didn’t know each other.
Tulare County Sheriff Mike Boudreaux said at the time that Garcia had gone on a 24-hour “reign of terror” and “had no regard for human life” before he was killed in a car accident while engaging police in pursuit. In addition to the murder, Garcia shot a farm worker, shot another woman in a parking lot, stole a vehicle, robbed a gas station and rove the wrong way down a California highway. Just the type of people we should welcome with open arms into our country.
Tulare county had received a request from ICE to keep Garcia in custody from a previous arrest, but they were forced to ignore the ICE request due to California’s sanctuary laws. Garcia had previously been deported form the U.S. in 2014 by ICE, and had a criminal record going back to 2002. He was ordered deported three times by federal officials. But our immigration laws are not broken.
Another story out of North Carolina continues to double down on the dangerous consequences of ignoring ICE officials.
The intent of an ICE detainer is, obviously, to keep criminal aliens out of our communities and our country, and to keep our legal and law-abiding citizens safe.
Detainers have zero effect, however, if law enforcement agencies fail to act on them.
Which is why illegal immigrant Luis Analberto Pineda-Anchecta was given multiple chances to terrorize, abuse, and attempt to murder his ex-girlfriend.
ICE has been engaged in an ongoing battle with the Mecklenburg County, North Carolina Sheriff’s Office, where Anchecta illegally resides.
ICE has said that Mecklenburg County and its Sheriff, Garry McFadden, abide by “sanctuary policies,” which threatens public safety according to ICE Enforcement and Removal Operations Executive Associate Director Tim Robbins.
“It is safer for all if we work with the jails,” Robbins said in September.
Robbins has been proved correct, at the expense of a petrified, injured, and mentally scarred woman.
On May 15, 2019, the 37-year-old Honduran native, Anchecta, was arrested by Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police CMP) for charges of Assault of a Female (apparently a different crime than Assault of a Male?), Communicating Threats, Injury to Personal Property Over $200, Larceny of Property or Goods with a Value Over $1,000, and Simple Assault. The victim of these crimes was known in reports only as F.M.
The following day, ICE placed a detainer on Anchecta.
The day after that (May 17), the Mecklenburg County Sheriff’s Office gave ICE the middle finger and allowed Anchecta to pay his bond and be released without notifying the federal agency.
I’m sure you can guess that the story didn’t end there.
On May 21, just six days after Anchecta’s first arrest, victim F.M. was walking to her car in the parking lot of her apartment complex when she was approached by two masked men. F.M. recognized one of the men as Anchecta despite his disguise.
Anchecta grabbed F.M. by the arm and shoved a cloth in her mouth. To keep the cloth in place, he tied a plastic rope around her head.
Anchecta and his crony shoved F.M. against her will into the passenger seat of a Ford Fusion. Once in the car, the second masked man left the scene, and Anchecta told F.M. in Spanish, “I love you and I’m going to kill you.”
Anchecta started to drive the vehicle, all the while holding tightly onto the plastic rope around F.M.’s face. Anchecta drove for a short time before pulling over on the side of the road near a wooded area, at which point he dragged F.M. out of the vehicle by pulling on the plastic rope.
F.M. struggled against Anchecta as he attempted to rape her, and the victim was able to escape his grasp when he tripped and fell over the plastic rope. She ran to the highway and flagged down help. Several cars pulled over to help the woman.
Anchecta locked his car (safety first) and fled on foot.
CMPD officers obtained a search warrant and searched Anchecta’s vehicle, where they recovered a spool of the plastic rope as well as F.M.’s cellphone.
May 23, two days later, CMPD attempted to arrest Anchecta, who engaged the officers in a SWAT standoff lasting nine hours. Anchecta was eventually taken into custody.
This time his charges amounted to Assault on a Female, Communicating Threats, Assault on a Person by Strangulation and Inflicting Physical Injury, Violation of a Domestic Violence Order, and First-Degree Kidnapping of a Person Over 16.
The next day, May 24, ICE again issued a detainer on Anchecta.
June 1, Mecklenburg County Sheriff’s Office again ignored ICE’s request and released Anchecta after he paid the required bail.
On June 2, ICE decided to take matters into their own hands and arrest Anchecta before he had another chance to try and kill F.M. ICE’s Charlotte-based Fugitive Operations Team and special agents from the Charlotte Homeland Security Investigations office located Anchecta in his vehicle and arrested him.

Also arrested in the same vehicle was 34-year-old Honduran native Rudy Aroldo Aguillar-Arevallo, who was believed to have been the second masked man involved in F.M.’s kidnapping.
The two were arrested on immigration violations.
In the vehicle with the men were loaded firearms and extra ammunition.
It’s not hard to figure out what Anchecta planned to do with that firearm had ICE not stepped in and taken him into custody.
Both Anchecta and Arevallo are currently in custody and face an illegal reentry charge, which comes with a maximum prison term of two years as well as a $250,000 fine. They both also face a charge of unlawful possession of a firearm by an alien, which adds a maximum term of 10 years in prison and another $250,000 fine.
Anchecta was sentenced to seven months in prison on January 7 for the aforementioned illegal reentry charge. He was scheduled to appear in court again today for the new charges and is said to be facing life in prison related to the federal kidnapping charge.

It’s earie to think what terrors F.M. would have faced if ICE hadn’t shown up that day. Sheriff McFadden is clearly more interested in protecting what he perceives to be rights of illegal aliens in our country than he is in keeping his own residents safe.
McFadden politicizes the detainers issued by ICE, refusing to acknowledge them because of his stance on immigration.
In September, McFadden said, “If you know that these individuals are out here that you believe, that you deem dangerous then why don’t we work together to have this individual brought to justice by putting a federal warrant on them.”
One would reasonably think that “working together” would include honoring a detainer meant to bring the criminal to federal custody and face his charges there.
McFadden said that the detainers aren’t laws and as such he would not grant the requests. A North Carolina bill was passed last year, which required all sheriff’s agencies to comply with detainers filed by ICE. In August, North Carolina Governor Roy Cooper vetoed the bill.
In response to the veto, ICE issued the following statement: “In general, when law enforcement agencies fail to honor immigration detainers and release serious criminal offenders onto the streets, it undermines ICE’s ability to protect public safety.”
Do you believe them now, Governor Cooper?
