According to the Los Angeles Times, while introducing Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto, in late August, Governor Jerry Brown said America is “the other Mexico,” he “spoke about the interwoven histories of Mexico and California.” He “nodded to the immigrants in the room, saying it didn’t matter if they had permission to be in the United States.”
“You’re all welcome in California,” Brown said.
The man who goes by the name of Marcelo Marquez and is now in custody for the shooting deaths of two California sheriff’s deputies was previously deported twice from the United States. In addition, the Mexican national is not only an illegal immigrant but was also convicted of being in possession of drugs in 1997.
Following his conviction, the 34-year-old Mexican was deported but returned again to the United States. He was arrested and deported again in 2001. Although he had been known as Marcelo Marquez, a fingerprint match has now identified him as Luis Enrique Monroy-Bracamonte, although there is no confirmation as to whether this name was also a previously assumed identity.
California deputy gunned down, by a twice deported illegal alien, exactly 26 years to the day after dad killed in line of duty.
Two veteran California sheriff’s deputies were killed in a shooting rampage in two counties that began Friday morning when one deputy was shot in the forehead while confronting a suspicious vehicle, authorities said.
The first officer was Sacramento County Deputy Danny Oliver, 47, who with his partner engaged the male and female suspects in a Motel 6 parking lot in Sacramento, said Sacramento County Sheriff Scott Jones.
The suspects fired several rounds, and Oliver wasn’t able to return fire, though his partner did as the suspects fled the scene shortly before 10:30 a.m. (1:30 p.m. ET), Jones said.
The suspects fled to nearby Placer County, where two deputies were shot, authorities said.
One of them later died, the California Highway Patrol said on Twitter.
Placer County Sheriff Ed Bonner said it was “an incredibly difficult day” as he identified the deceased deputy as 42-year-old Michael David Davis Jr., who had served in law enforcement since 1996 — the last 10 years as a homicide investigator.
Det. Michael Davis Jr. was on the hunt for a cold-blooded gunman, who had already killed one deputy and shot a civilian in the head, when the suspect opened fire with an assault rifle, striking him and his partner…
SACRAMENTO — Two law enforcement agencies are mourning the loss of two colleagues — and friends — who died in a crime spree Friday that went from Sacramento County to Placer County.
Both Sacramento County Sheriff’s Deputy Danny Oliver, 47, and Placer County Sheriff’s Detective Michael David Davis Jr., 42, died protecting their community.
“We live as a family,” Sacramento County Sheriff Scott Jones said. “Today we grieve as a family.”
Oliver was killed Friday morning. He was doing what he’d done countless times as a problem oriented police officer, checking on a suspicious vehicle. This time, though, a man armed with a rifle shot him in the head.
Oliver, a 15-year veteran of the sheriff’s department, died at University of California-Davis Medical Center. He leaves behind a wife and two daughters.
“If a suspect is willing to shoot an officer unprovoked, then no one is safe,” Jones said during a news conference on Friday afternoon.
The gunman’s rampage continued to Auburn after carjacking pickup truck in the Arden-Arcade area of Sacramento. Two Placer County sheriff’s deputies spotted the stolen truck and were immediately shot at by the suspect.
Deputy Jeff Davis was shot in the arm. He was treated and released from Sutter Roseville Medical Center.
“Today this organization, this family, suffered a horrific loss,” Placer County Sheriff Ed Bonner said.
Davis Jr. leaves behind a wife and four children. He had been with the Placer County Sheriff’s Department for 15 years.
In a tragic coincidence, Davis Jr. was killed 26 years to the day after his father Michael David Davis Sr., a Riverside County sheriff’s investigator, also died in the line of duty.
Shooting suspect Marcelo Marquez, 34, was taken into custody at an Auburn home after a standoff with deputies. His wife and accomplice, Jannelle Monroy, was arrested before the standoff. Both were in Sacramento County Jail on Saturday.
Marcelo Marquez tried to carjack two cars, killed two Sacramento police officers and wounded another cop. Yet not much information about Marcelo Marquez has been released. He’s 34 years old, but that’s about as much as we know. I’d like to know if this is another one of those ‘dreamers’ aka illegal aliens that have been invading the southern border to get amnensty after the mid-term elections. It would be nice if the media would find out, but we all know that will never happen. (It has since been reported by KNTV Channel 2 Fox News, that Marquez had been deported twice.)
Another Placer County Sheriff’s deputy and a carjacking victim were shot and injured by the same person.
