Newark, NJ Triple Murderer Did Not Slip Through the System

The fact that the Newark, New Jersey triple murder was an illegal alien is only half the story. For starters, the murderer, Jose Carranza, was well known to the police already:
Dow would not answer questions about how Carranza was released on bail despite his illegal immigration status and charges earlier this year that he raped a 5-year-old, then threatened the child's parents.

Carranza was indicted by grand juries in New Jersey twice this year — in April on aggravated assault and weapons charges; and in July on 31 counts which included aggravated sexual assault of a child under 13 years old and endangering the welfare of a child he had a duty to supervise.

He was released on $50,000 bail on the assault case, which stemmed from a barroom fight, and $150,000 bail on the sexual assault indictment, which charged that the abuse began in 2003 when the girl was 4 years old and continued to this year.

The assistant prosecutor handling the murder case, Thomas McTigue, said, "Our focus hasn't been his immigration status."

Prosecutors said they did not immediately recall if Carranza's immigration status was known when he was granted bail on the two indictments, and whether they opposed granting bail.

It is rare for illegal immigrants to be granted bail, especially when charged with serious crimes, said Alan L. Zegas, a noted New Jersey defense lawyer.

"The level of risk of flight increases exponentially when a person is not a citizen of this country and has few, if any, roots here," Zegas said. - Fox News
There are so many things wrong with how this criminal was handled. For starters, why on earth did they release him on bail when we was committing crimes while out on bail? I would think that is a violation of his bail conditions. This sadly is what happens when the soft-on-crime movement gets too much power. However, this is not the whole problem. There is the issue of Newark ignoring his immigration status. As the assistant prosecutor states:
"Our focus hasn't been his immigration status." - Thomas McTigue, Assistant prosecutor, Newark, NJ
It has not been an issue, because Newark, NJ is an illegal alien Sanctuary City. How convenient to pick and choose the crimes you are going to enforce.
Today, Newark is a sanctuary city where, if illegal immigrants are arrested, they are safe in the knowledge that federal authorities will not be notified. This enables illegal immigrants to live in Newark with the assurance that Newark will essentially protect them while they violate federal law.

In the year 2006, Newark topped its record of homicides at 106. With three times the number of homicides per capita as New York, Newark remains as one of the most violent cities in the country. The city is on pace to match or break its homicide record again in 2007. - Wikipedia
Well this one illegal alien has now helped them towards retaining their Murder Capital title for 2007. Now, remember the 9/11 Commission Report? You know, the one being used as an excuse to pass legislation requiring nuclear scanning of all incoming cargo containers. That Report, whose recommendations the Democrats were all waving about, claiming that the White House was dragging their feet implementing. Well, it has one recommendation concerning illegal aliens and local law enforcement:
Sanctuary city policies defy guidelines from the 9/11 Commission Report, which called on state and local authorities to help federal agencies crack down on illegal immigration. On page 390 it said that,
“There is a growing role for state and local law enforcement agencies [for the enforcement of immigration law]. They need more training and work with federal agencies so that they can cooperate more effectively with those federal authorities in identifying terrorist suspects.”
- Human Events
This Wikipedia entry is kind because some sanctuary cities not only ignore the immigration status of people they suspect of being illegal aliens, they also ignore warrants for arrest issued by Immigration Authorities as well. This is official police policy in New Haven, Connecticut, by police executive order given in December, 2006:

• Officers shall not make arrests based on administrative warrants for arrest or removal entered by ICE into the FBI’s National Crime Information Center (NCIC) database, including administrative immigration warrants for persons with outstanding removal, deportation or exclusion orders. Enforcement of the civil provisions of U.S. immigration law is the responsibility of federal immigration officials. - City of New Haven

This is shameful behavior by local authorities to ignore outstanding warrants. It is not like every illegal alien has a warrant out for them. (Although there should be.)

It is misleading to say that this murderer slipped through a crack in the system. He walked through at least two open doors. Doors held open by people elected to protect us. The question is, is anyone going to try and close them? Hopefully we will see ICE making raids in Newark within a week. That is not a solution, but needed to remove the other illegal alien criminals from the streets, since the local authorities are not interested in doing that themselves. It would also be useful to see what other human garbage Newark has allowed to roam its streets.
