Illegal alien cop-killer explains how sanctuary city helped him hide in plain sight

A Mexican national, who murdered a police officer after having twice crossed the border into the United States illegally, told a Houston newspaper how sanctuary cities were his friend for allowing him to hide in plain sight.

Convicted killer Juan Leonardo Quintero told The Texas Tribune in a recent interview that sanctuary cities tied the hands of law enforcement by not allowing officers to check the immigration status of people within their jurisdiction.

Quintero first crossed the border in 1994 and was deported four years later after being charged with sexual indecency with a 12-year-old girl.

Although he was told he’d face a 10-20 year prison sentence if he came back, Quintero returned to Houston seven months later. He knew Houston was a sanctuary city where there was a minimal risk of being caught.

His luck held for eight years until he was caught speeding in 2006. When Quintero was unable to produce identification, Houston police officer Rodney Johnson arrested him and placed him in the back of Johnson’s squad car.

Although Johnson searched Quintero, he didn’t search him well enough: he shot the officer repeatedly in the back of the head, killing him.

And because Houston is a sanctuary city, Johnson’s wife is a widow.

    There are so many things going on in my country that make no sense I can’t keep up with them. How Sanctuary cities can even exist in any State is beyond me. They are breaking our Federal Laws and they didn’t just pop up under O they have been around a long time.

    The only people who are held accountable for upholding the law in these places are the legal citizens. So how does that happen? Time to take America back to our Republic and back to law and order.

    US Congress could and should address this corruption. However, George Soros and pals own the US Congressional leaders.

    Strip all federal funding INCLUDING WELFARE from sanctuary cities and see how fast they start to cooperate!

    Here is an idea, ENFORCE THE LAWS and jail every damned liberal politician who refuses to comply with the law regarding harboring criminal illegals. If they are here illegally, they are criminals period, and should be dealt with as such. How many more Americans have to be killed or victimized before something is done?
