Illegal immigrant charged with murder in California fire had prior arrests, was never deported

Sanchez was in some kind of fight with the others and lit the fire with the intent to kill, Los Angeles Police Capt. Billy Hayes said.

The suspect charged with murder in connection with a vacant building fire in Los Angeles was in the United States illegally and had a string of arrests to his name — but the feds never deported him, officials said Friday.

Johnny Sanchez, a 21-year-old citizen of Honduras, was initially arrested in 2012 for crossing the southeastern California border illegally, the Los Angeles Times reported. Authorities said they released him because he had no criminal history or previous immigration violations at the time.

He was arrested again in January on suspicion of domestic violence and twice in the ensuing months on suspicion of drug possession, officials said.

After he crossed the border, authorities reportedly placed him under supervision and ordered Sanchez to report to them regularly — but he stopped doing so in 2014, the Times adds.

Migrant In Court For Violent Rape: ‘I Came to Austria to F*ck the Women’

An illegal Algerian immigrant accused of beating a woman unconscious in an attempted rape has told a court the reason he is in Austria is to “f*ck the women”.

On trial at the Regional Court of Linz the Algerian, who has been convicted several times in France and Austria, denied carrying out the attack in April this year. He is alleged to have tried to rape the victim before brutally beating her.

The woman was left lying unconscious with serious injuries in bushes near the bus stop where the incident occurred. She is also thought to have been psychologically scarred by the event.

Asked why he’d come to Austria the accused replied: “I have come to Austria to f*ck the women”. As well as having several convictions in Europe, the Algerian has a rejected asylum decision and a travel ban under his belt. The 35 year old is also accused of committing an attempted rape last November, and of an assault.

Deportation has not so far been possible as Austria has no arrangements with Algeria.

Testifying, a student who was approached by the victim told the court: “The woman came up to me and was covered in blood. You could not see her face. She said to me: ‘I was raped.’”

Diversity to Mark Chicano Moratorium Observances

David Rico, Commander of the National Brown Berets de Aztlan and Krisna Velasco of the Ritchie Valens Foundation who is producing a documentary on the life or Ruben Salazar, among several others.

Commemorations this coming weekend of the 1970 Chicano Moratorium will include a variety of speakers, several of them African American, at a march and rally in East Los Angeles on Saturday.

At a separate event on Sunday, guest speakers will include the parents of two people killed by police this year.

The 46th Annual National Chicano Moratorium commemorates what many have come to call the coming of age of the Chicano civil rights movement. Special attention each year is paid to remembering the death of crusading Chicano Journalist Ruben Salazar by a tear gas canister lobbed into the Silver Dollar Bar by an L.A. County Sheriff’s deputy during a riot that broke out following what at that time was the largest ever protest by Chicanos – Mexican Americans in Los Angeles.

The two days of activities will kickoff Saturday at 9 a.m. with a march from Atlantic Park (570 S. Atlantic Blvd. East LA) Saturday to Ruben Salazar Park (3864 Whittier Blvd., and Ditman Ave.) where a rally will be held at 12:30 p.m.

Amnesty Activists Target Auto Shop for Supporting Pro-Trump Sheriff

Pro-amnesty activists led by the former chairman of La Raza and the director of the Puente Movement organized a boycott in front of a local Arizona tire store after they posted signage supporting pro-Donald Trump Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio, who is running for re-election.

Daniel Ortega, who previously chaired the board of directors for the controversial pro-amnesty organization, La Raza, fronted the protests outside a Discount Tire store in the area, simply because the business posted a sign supporting Arpaio.

Ortega said the support for Arpaio by the local tire store was a “slap in the face” to the Hispanic community, according to NBC News.

“The owners of Discount Tire have the right to support who they want, but to display their support understanding what Sheriff Arpaio has done to our community is totally insensitive and inconsiderate,” Ortega said.

“How can you ignore what Sheriff Joe Arpaio has done to our community and still expect us to do business there?” Ortega added.

Ortega said he hoped the boycott would silence businesses from publicly supporting Arpaio, saying he wants the “backlash” to send a “message to other businesses where Latinos spend their dollars about how to deal with their politics in the future.”

Boyle Heights activists blame the art galleries for gentrification

“In many ways, that Chicano Civil Rights movement looked to Boyle Heights as ‘our community, our home.’ And that’s changing now,” said Eric Avila, a professor of history, Chicano studies and urban planning at UCLA. “If you think about it, the struggle for Mexican American civil rights has always been strongly connected to this idea of turf, territory.”

The venerable Eastside art institution gathered artists and community members in its Boyle Heights headquarters to have a talk about gentrification.

In no time, the meeting went south as about a dozen mostly young activists, some wearing the brown berets of their 1960s Chicano Movement forebears, barged in. One woman covered her face with a red bandana. They accused Self Help Graphics of helping to roll the Trojan horse of gentrification into Boyle Heights by supporting art galleries popping up in the neighborhood.

Hoisting signs with rebukes that included “Out with the galleries out with the sellouts,” the activists took control of the microphone from a Self Help board member and insisted that the art galleries get out of town.

“We demand that all existing galleries leave immediately,” said a woman from Defend Boyle Heights. “And leave it up to the community on what to do with those spaces.”

Paul Ryan: We Have Not Pushed Kate’s Law Because We Do Not Want to Clog Up Jails with Illegal Drunk Drivers

In a Wednesday Fox News interview, Speaker Paul Ryan seemed to suggest that the reason the House has not pushed Kate’s Law is because he is opposed to “clogging up our jails” with illegal alien drunk drivers.

Kate’s Law—named in honor of Kate Steinle—would increase the penalty for illegal immigrants who return to the U.S. after being deported. Last year, Steinle was gunned down in broad daylight by a five-time deported criminal alien. In congressional testimony last summer, Steinle’s father recalled holding his daughter in his arms as she was bleeding to death and hearing her dying words: “Help me, Dad.”

On his Wednesday program, Bill O’Reilly pressed Ryan—who is the leader of the pro-illegal immigration wing of the Republican Party—on why the House has yet to push Kate’s Law nearly a year after her murder:

O’Reilly: “Right now we have a system where we can’t protect Americans from violent criminal aliens, who defy deportation four, five, six times. We still can’t protect Kate Steinle, a 32 year-old woman in San Francisco from being killed. Kate’s Law would make it easier for the authorities to apprehend foreign criminals … and it would also provide mandatory sentences just for defying deportation. And Congress can’t get it done, and the folks don’t understand why.”

Ryan: “Well, first of all, the guy shouldn’t have been here in the first place if we actually enforced our immigration laws. That’s point one. Point two: we have to take after sanctuary cities. We have to deal with—and we’ve been doing this through the appropriations process—we have to deal with cities that are openly defying our immigration laws because that gives safe haven to people like this—so that’s point one, two. Point three: what we have to figure out is how do we write Kate’s Law so that we’re not clogging up our jails so much for, say, DUI, but for the true violent criminals? … We need to get the details right so that we actually are going after the people that are doing this. … Trust me, you know we’re frustrated about this.”

Founder of Judge Curiel’s Group: Whites Should Go Back to Europe, California To Be ‘Hispanic State’

The lawyers’ association to which Judge Gonzalo Curiel belongs was co-founded by a man who publicly bragged about Hispanics taking over California and all of the state’s governmental institutions–and insisted that whites should go back to Europe. The group, the California La Raza Lawyers Association, has been widely defended as “not pro-Mexican” by mainstream media outlets, though the outlets failed to report the inflammatory statements of the man listed first as a founder, Mario Obledo.

A 2010 Snopes report asserts that the first-listed co-founder of Judge Curiel’s group, Obledo, made the statements. They reported:

Mario Obledo was a co-founder of the Mexican American Legal Defense and Education Fund (MALDEF) and the La Raza Lawyers of California bar association, and he formerly served as California’s Secretary of Health and Welfare. We don’t know exactly when and where he first made his controversial statement about California’s becoming a “Hispanic state,” but he has confirmed he said it at least twice: during an appearance on Ray Briem’s talk radio show in May or June of 1998, and again on Tom Leykis’ talk radio show:

Obledo: “We’re going to take over all the political institutions of California. In five years the Hispanics are going to be the majority population of this state.”

Caller: “You also made the statement that California is going to become a Hispanic state, and if anyone doesn’t like it, they should leave. Did you say that?”

Obledo: “I did. They ought to go back to Europe.”

The statements were also reported by the New York Times in their 2010 obituary for Obledo. They wrote:

When someone put up a sign at the California border saying, “Illegal Immigration State,” he threatened to burn it down personally.
