Illegal immigrant Luis Bracamontes smirked after receiving the death penalty for his 2014 murders of two Sacramento police officers, and this time the victims’ families smiled right back.
“I was smiling back at him purposely,” Jeri Oliver, the mother of slain sheriff’s deputy Danny Oliver, told the Sacramento Bee. Debbie McMahon, the mom of sheriff detective Michael Davis Jr., did the same. “[I wanted] to smile at him for a change,” she said.
Bracamontes was recently featured in a chilling video by President Trump, who accused Democrats of being complicit in the murders of Americans killed by illegal aliens like Bracamontes and Jose Ines Garcia Zarate, who gunned down Kate Steinle in 2015.
Zarate, who had been deported five times before murdering Steinle, told authorities he specifically returned to San Francisco because it was a sanctuary city.
At his murder trial in January 2018, Luis Bracamontes told the judge that his only regret was that he didn’t kill more people.
“Only thing that I f—en regret is that I f—en killed two,” Bracamontes laughed. “I wish I had killed more of the motherf—ers!”
Local law enforcement said the death penalty (which Bracamontes wanted) was appropriate in light of his heinous crime and complete lack of remorse. “He’s a despicable and evil human being and the death penalty is totally appropriate,” Sheriff Devon Bell said.
Bracamonte’s case has spotlighted the growing epidemic of illegal immigration in the United States, especially in sanctuary state California, where local law enforcement are discouraged from cooperating with federal immigration authorities.
Things got even more ridiculous this week after California Attorney General Xavier Becerra threatened to arrest the sheriff of Orange County for saying she will enforce federal immigration laws and cooperate with ICE.
Tucker Carlson was outraged that the California attorney general would rather arrest a law enforcement officer doing her job than rid the state of illegal immigrants who are breaking federal law by being in the United States unlawfully. https://t.co/CYtS8l5Jm6
