Illegal “Dreamer” Guns Down 7-yr-old [VIDEO]
Before a gunman open fired in a church Sunday morning, another Texas shooting transpired.
Sadly, the media largely ignored this particularly death by gun.
Illegal “Dreamer” Rolondo Martinez took an assault rifle and randomly shot four people. Among the victim was a 7-year-old girl who took a bullet to the head. The tragedy unfolded along a stretch of I-35 in Austin, Texas.
According to local news station KXAN, the gunman is in police custody.
Austin police say the shooting began about 2 a.m. Saturday and ended around 3:15 a.m. Calls to 911 came in from multiple places along I-35, stretching from south Austin at Stassney Lane up to Wells Branch Parkway.
“We have a lot of crime scenes. We have several people that were injured in this,” said Austin Police Assistant Chief Joseph Chacon on Saturday.
[…]Martinez’s bond is set at $1 million. According to Travis County Jail records, he has an Immigration and Naturalization Service detainer on him.
That means he’s slated to be deported and is not a US citizen.
Despite being charged in 2015 with assault on a public servant, he was allowed to stay in the US.
How Did This Happen?
Obviously, Martinez slipped through the cracks somewhere. Texas Governor Greg Abbott is tough on immigration. However, some local authorities do their best to defy Trump’s immigration orders. One of those officials is known as Sanctuary Sally.
As we reported months ago,
Sheriff Sally Hernandez declared she would only cooperate with federal law enforcement for illegals who were caught committing the crimes of murder, human trafficking, and sexual assault. So if you are killed by an illegal driving drunk, tough luck. If you are robbed, even at gunpoint, those banditos will not be touched by Hernandez.
Unfortunately, Martinez committed his crimes in the jurisdiction of Sheriff Sally Hernandez. Therefore, he perched in Austin illegally for more than two years after being officially deported. And now he killed a child.
Funny, Leftists like Sheriff Hernandez say nothing about criminals like Martinez. They don’t dare mention the problems of an illegal toting around an assault rifle. In fact, Leftists protect illegals at all costs.
The seven-year-old girl remains in critical condition. And because of many 911 calls reporting the illegal driving a black auto and shooting out windows, the carnage was limited. The crime spree covered about 18 miles, however only four people sustained injuries.
Don’t Mess With Texas
Governor Abbott made it clear: he won’t allow sanctuary cities in the state of Texas. Earlier this year, Abbott blocked $1.5 million in grant money to Travis County, due to their sheriff.
And a report at the beginning of the year highlighted Travis County’s failures.
Between Jan. 28 and Feb. 3, Travis County sheriff deputies declined more than 140 requests – known as detainers – from Immigration and Customs Enforcement officers to hand over undocumented immigrants for possible deportation, according to the report from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security.
Travis County was far and away the Texas leader in declining ICE detainers, according to the report, which mentioned only two other Texas counties. Williamson County declined four recent detainers and Bastrop County declined three.
Obviously, Governor Abbott agrees with the president’s policy on immigration. Thus, illegals coming to America should be thwarted. Further, the governor agrees that sanctuary cities are illegal.
To that end, Abbott doesn’t mind jailing sheriffs and other officials who refuse to cooperate with ending the era of sanctuary cities.
Perhaps Sanctuary Sally Hernandez will find herself culpable for the shooting of this seven-year-old child? I believe her policies are just as much to blame as the shooter himself. Had she cooperated with ICE long ago, Martinez wouldn’t be in this country. Anybody who allowed Martinez or other illegals who commit crimes should be held accountable.
In short, comply with the Fed and the Constitution or face the consequences.
Needless to say, Obama had a very different immigration policy for illegals. Obama ignored the law, and encouraged states and municipalities to thwart the Constitution. But those days are over.
We know President Trump’s policy follows the will of most Americans. Nevertheless, it’s now up to him to enforce the existing laws. Further, he must insure that states follow the Constitution and protect their citizens. To do anything less is uncivilized. This policy may cost an innocent child her life.
