President Trump called the family of fallen officer Ronil Singh, who was gunned down by an illegal immigrant evading a traffic stop. Breitbart reports:
President Trump has called the family of 33-year-old Newman, California police officer Ronil Singh to offer his condolences after the officer was allegedly murdered on the job by an illegal alien.
The day after Christmas, Singh pulled Gustavo Perez Arriaga over on suspicion of drunk driving. That’s when police say the illegal alien shot Singh. Over his police radio, Singh called out “shots fired,” and as police arrived at the scene of the traffic stop, they found the officer with a gunshot wound.
Singh was transported to a nearby hospital, where he later died, leaving behind his wife Anamika and their newborn five-month-old son.
Perez Arriaga was arrested in December 2018 for the killing of Singh — a legal immigrant from Fiji — but was officially charged with the murder of a law enforcement officer on Wednesday. The illegal alien, whom authorities said is a “known” gang member, had been caught by police after a more than 50-hour manhunt. Officials said he was planning to flee the U.S. to Mexico.
This tragedy is a dark reminder of the real dangers of illegal immigration and sanctuary jurisdictions.
