The death of George Floyd, a black man with a lengthy, violent criminal history and numerous incarcerations, has vaulted him into martyrdom. He died while being restrained by a white police officer, now jailed and facing Second Degree murder charges. Three other officers, one a rookie, are also incarcerated, awaiting trial for not interfering. Floyd has become the unlikely impetus for calls to defund police departments, national riots, wanton destruction, and the movement to discard America’s historic monuments.
That the police were initially called based on Floyd attempting to pass a counterfeit $20 bill in a store has faded into oblivion, as has the fact that his autopsy report revealed numerous illicit drugs in his system.
But count on the fact that few Americans have heard the names of Jerry Wayne Harbour, Michael White, and Joseph Paglia, three members of a police motorcycle group who were killed by Ivan Robles Navejas, 28, an illegal alien drunk driver who received Obama’s illegitimate DACA amnesty. And unlike with Floyd, there will be no outcry for policy changes to rectify the scourge of repeat offender criminal aliens who are allowed to remain in the country and further victimize Americans. KTSA San Antonio news radio covered the deaths and provides photos of the three victims and the drunk driving killer.
SRAZ addressed the impact of just two cases in which Arizonans, Mesa Police Sgt. Brandon Mendoza and young convenience store clerk Grant Ronnebeck were killed by illegal aliens. Their parents praised President Trump’s efforts to address this criminality through the creation of Victims of Immigration Crime Engagement (VOICE) Office to support the victims and families affected by illegal alien crime.
Navejas, a Mexican national, was shielded from deportation by former Pres. Obama’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, which remains in effect due to a disappointing June 18, 2020 U.S. Supreme Court decision.
In November 2014, Obama announced changes to DACA expanding it to include illegals who entered the country prior to 2010, eliminating the quasi requirement that applicants be younger than 31 years old, and lengthening the renewable deferral period.
Obama’s efforts, intended to expand the Democrat party, were aided by his Arizona pal, and traveling buddy, Sen. Jeff Flake, whose 18% home state approval ratings were so low he opted to retire after a single term.
In 2018, SRAZ wrote, Jeff’s Flaky dreamers are a farce: most are adults, not “kids,” which reveals the truth about DACA recipients. There is no accurate means of verifying if they were brought into the U.S. as infants by their illegally invading parents, or arrived last year after hoisting themselves over the border.
