Reggie Singh, the brother of murdered police officer Ronil Singh, broke down in tears while thanking law enforcement for arresting illegal immigrant Gustavo Perez Arriaga using Ronil’s handcuffs.
“Please bear with me. This is not easy for me,” Reggie sobbed at a press conference yesterday. “Ronil Singh was my older brother. Yes, he is not coming back.”
Reggie continued: “There are a lot of people out there that miss him. And a lot of law enforcement people that I don’t know who worked days and nights to make this happen.”
Even in his lowest moment, Reggie expressed his gratitude to the California police officers who worked around the clock to apprehend his brother’s murderer.
“I’d like to thank you from the bottom of my heart for making this happen. I wish I could thank all of the law enforcement agencies, Homeland Security in San Francisco, everyone.
I was waiting for this to happen. I’d like to thank you — working day and night to make this happen.”
As BizPac Review reported, Officer Ronil Singh, 33, was a legal immigrant from Fiji who was shot to death the day after Christmas by illegal immigrant Gustavo Perez Arriaga during a routine traffic stop.
Arriaga — who was a member of the violent Sureños gang — was suspected of driving under the influence. He opened fire on Singh after the officer called in the stop.
Gustavo Perez Arriaga (photo below, on right) entered the US illegally through Arizona several years ago. He has two previous DUI arrests.
Police also arrested Arriaga’s brother Adrian Virgen, 25, and co-worker Erik Razo Quiroz, 32 — both of whom were in the US illegally — for allegedly helping Arriaga escape police.
“We had them in custody (on Dec. 27) and asked for their cooperation and they lied to us,” Sheriff Adam Christianson said at a press conference.
Ronil Singh’s tragic death could have been prevented had there been a wall in border state Arizona, where Arriaga jumped the fence to enter the United States illegally.
Democrats refuse to fund the wall, calling it “immoral and expensive” while blithely ignoring that illegal immigration costs US taxpayers $113 billion every year.
That’s 22.6 times more expensive than the $5 billion President Trump is asking to fund the wall.
In addition to allowing illegal immigrants, drugs, and human trafficking, the border wall enables the murders of 15 Americans every day.
Democrats shamelessly prioritize the interests of illegal immigrants over US citizens and legal residents because they want to expand their voting bloc after alienating the middle class and many minorities with their radical, anti-American policies.
While President Trump spent Christmas working in the Oval Office and visiting US troops in Iraq, top Democrats like Nancy Pelosi jetted off to Hawaii, where she luxuriated at a posh hotel and sipped daiquiris by the beach.

Rest in peace, Officer Ronil Singh. You did not die in vain.
This is Ronil Singh, a legal immigrant who worked hard to become a police officer. On Christmas Eve shortly after taking this photo he was murdered in the line of duty by an ILLEGAL IMMIGRANT. Democrats don’t want you to know about this. #BuildTheWall pic.twitter.com/1oLuhhs83u
