Illegal Immigrant Who Stabbed Stranger In The Neck Had Been Deported Seven Times

A violent attack was recently caught on security cameras showed one man another man in the neck. The attack appears to be unprovoked as the two men did not know each other and hadn't even been talking.

The incident fueled arguments about police cracking down on undocumented immigrants in sanctuary cities, and in building a wall across the southern border of the U.S.

The attacker was identified as 39-year-old Ricardo Velasquez-Romero. He was at Lola's Market in Santa Rosa, California last month when he allegedly stood up and walked toward an older man.

The two had been sitting at different tables and didn't appear to have exchanged any words with each other.

“The suspect had an unknown stabbing instrument in his hand and stabbed the victim once in the neck. The suspect then fled the area on foot," said a statement from the police department.

The victim, a 61-year-old man, was rushed to the hospital. Initially, he was in critical condition, but he's now been listed as stable.

Velasquez-Romero, who also goes by the name Eulalio Miniz Orozco, was arrested and police quickly found out that he had a long criminal history that included convictions for several felony drug and weapons charges. He'd also been deported back to Mexico seven times in the last 10 years.

California recently declared itself a 'sanctuary state' in defiance of President Donald Trump's campaign promise to build a wall and crack down on illegal immigration. In sanctuary cities/states, communication between police and Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

California Governor Jerry Brown signed a bill in October of 2017 that prevents police from asking individuals about their immigration status, or from turning them over to ICE.

“These are uncertain times for undocumented Californians and their families, and this bill strikes a balance that will protect public safety while bringing a measure of comfort to those families who are now living in fear every day,” said Brown.

The problem Brown overlooks is that a lot of native citizens and legal immigrants live in fear instead. While some defend undocumented immigrants, claiming that they are mostly hard-working people who should be left alone, the statistics actually paint a disturbing picture.

The Department of Homeland Security reported that between October 2011 and September 2017, more than 372,000 immigrants were deported after being convicted of an aggravated felony, or for two or more felony crimes.

The Velasquez-Romero case comes on the heels of another notorious case in California in which an illegal immigrant was found not guilty of killing 32-year-old Kate Steinle. Miss Steinle was walking with her father when she was fatally shot in the head by Jose Ines Garcia Zarate, an undocumented immigrant who had been deported five times and who had a felony criminal record.

Zarate first claimed he found a gun that he accidentally fired, and later changed his story to say he stepped on the firearm and it went off.

He was acquitted on charges of murder, involuntary manslaughter, and assault with a deadly weapon. The case put sanctuary cities at the center of immigration debates across the country.

In another recent incident in California, illegal immigrant Luis Bracamontes smiled gleefully when he was being questioned about killing two police officers. He admitted to the murders and said he wished he could have killed more.
