As a law enforcement officer in the community where an illegal alien thug murdered a 59-year-old woman last week, San Jose Police Sgt. Paul Kelly has had it with California’s sanctuary state law.
“There’s definitely a problem with the laws. If the laws weren’t as messed up as they were, our victim would be alive,” he bluntly said Thursday morning on Fox News’ “Fox & Friends.”
Listen to his full statement below:
He wasn’t wrong in what he said.
Bambi Larson’s killer, 24-year-old illegal alien Carlos Eduardo Arevalo Carranza, is a known gang member with an extensive, violent criminal history. Yet despite numerous arrests and convictions in California since 2016 for battery, burglary, assault, drug possession, etc., he was never transferred into the custody of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement because of the state’s policies.
As a result, he was allowed to roam free on the streets and eventually kill a 59-year-old mother of two. Newman Police Department Cpl. Ronil Singh, a legal immigrant, wound up dead last year because of the exact same circumstances, i.e., an illegal alien with a criminal history being allowed to roam free because of California’s widely panned sanctuary state law.
“This is a criminal illegal alien with prior criminal activity that should have been reported to ICE,” the county sheriff of the California community where Newman was murdered said during a presser in December following the arrest of his alleged murderer, illegal alien Gustavo Perez Arriaga.
“We were prohibited, law enforcement was prohibited because of sanctuary laws and that led to the encounter with Singh. I’m suggesting that the outcome could have been different if law enforcement wasn’t restricted, prohibited or had their hands tied because of political interference.”
Though Arriaga had two DUI arrests on his record before he murdered Singh, local authorities had been prohibited by California’s “sanctuary city” laws from reporting him to ICE.
Listen to Stanislaus County Sheriff Adam Christianson below:
During a discussion on Fox News later that evening, he told fill-in host Jason Chaffetz that California’s sanctuary state law is “bad public safety policy, and it’s dangerous and irresponsible, plain and simple.”
Kelly, who also serves as the president of the San Jose Police Officers’ Association, expressed the same sentiment Thursday on “Fox & Friends.”
“What has to happen is whether it’s state laws or county laws that created this, that’s our problem and those need to be changed immediately and that’s what we are asking for,” he said.
“If there is violations in regards to violent crimes, whether it’s the sanctuary state laws, whether it’s certain county laws throughout California and across this nation, they absolutely need to be deported after serving their time.”
He added that, as folks hired to enforce the law, he and his peers are tired of this: “The American police officer is tired of the debate. What we are concerned about is fixing these laws in California and in these counties across the counties now before other people in our community are injured.”
He also mentioned Singh.
“There’s absolutely no reason in the world Bambi should have died. There’s others that we know and have talked about. Officer Singh in Newman, California. The same thing,” he said.
“In regards to deportation, we are not talking about Dreamers and jay-walking tickets. What we are talking about is violent, sexual predators that are convicted, and there should be no protection for them in this country if they do that.”
Sadly, both the far-left legislators in California and the radically far-left Democrats in Congress disagree. To them, every illegal alien — including those affiliated with the murderous criminal gang MS-13 — possesses “a spark of divinity,” as House Speaker Nancy Pelosi put it last year.

“They’re trying to protect illegals from ICE,” co-host Brian Kilmeade noted. “That’s the problem. That’s what politicians are doing — trying to vilify ICE workers and ICE officers instead of vilifying the illegals.”
“And as a result this lady is dead and she leaves behind a son,” co-host Ainsley Earhardt added, concluding the segment.
Meanwhile, a 68-year-old woman in Minnesota was reportedly recently sexually assaulted at a nursing home by yet another illegal alien — this one a beneficiary of former President Barack Hussein Obama’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program.
Neither the Democrat legislators who cater their policies to illegal aliens nor their political allies within the mainstream have said much — if anything at all — about either this sexual assault or the murder of Larson. It’s almost as if they don’t care, as noted by social media:
Sadly, Bambi Larson is the 4th innocent Californian allegedly killed by an illegal immigrant since December 2018, here in the Democrat-decreed Sanctuary State of CA.
But, CA Democrats don’t actually care. pic.twitter.com/UhQgZIegQ5

Bambi Larson from San Jose California should be alive today. She was murdered by an illegal who was a career criminal, had 6 ICE detainers and previous deportation. You and your ilk are completely responsible for her violent death, but, you don’t care!

The Democrats should be held responsible for the murderous, slaughter of Bambi Larson by a illegal alien 24 years old deported many times, criminal gang-banger. What are the former and now presently CA. Governor is going to do? This killer will not be put on ‘Death Row’, ass-hole
