An illegal immigrant who has been previously deported and has since been arrested many times has been arrested again.

This time the criminal was arrested for murder after being given sanctuary again and again by the state of California, Fox News reported.

The San Jose police chief blasted California’s sanctuary city policies Tuesday after a previously deported illegal immigrant with a long rap sheet was arrested for murder in the brutal stabbing of a 59-year-old woman.

Chief Eddie Garcia said the murder of Bambi Larson, who was killed inside her home Thursday afternoon, demands that police and the county have an honest conversation over the refusal to honor U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement detainer requests for violent criminals.

“This isn’t about politics, this is about public safety,” the chief said during a press conference in which he railed against the sanctuary policy.

“The City of San Jose and our police department has no control over how the county interacts with federal immigration enforcement or deportation of violent or serious felons like Carlos Arevalo Carranza,” he told reporters. “Those policies are not set at our level.”

“We are here to protect and embrace our otherwise law-abiding, undocumented residents,” he said.

“We are not here nor should we be here to shield admitted gangsters or violent criminals regardless of immigration status,” Garcia said.

Should sanctuary states be denied federal funding?

Garcia said his officers first made contact with Arevalo Carranza, who is believed to be homeless, when he was arrested for alleged methamphetamine possession. He was cited and released KTVU reported.

Erik Bonnar, an acting field office director for ICE, said Arevalo Carranza had been previously deported by Homeland Security from McAllen, Texas in 2013. At some point, he returned to the U.S. and has since been arrested numerous times on suspicion of committing offenses including burglary, battery, false imprisonment, possession of methamphetamine and prowling.

In the Los Angeles and Santa Clara counties, the 24-year-old had been arrested six times – the most recent for allegedly possessing methamphetamine and paraphernalia in January.

But DNA taken during his arrest matched samples taken from multiple locations around Larson’s home and, once he was located again by police, he was arrested on suspicion of murder.

Police said Arevalo Carranza was seen on security footage “stalking” the area near Larson’s home on the day of her murder and well as leaving the residence after the crime was committed. A connection between the two has not been determined, Garcia said.

“How many more people have to be killed or injured before California lawmakers will open discussions to revise the state policy prohibiting local law enforcement agencies from working with ICE to apprehend dangerous criminal aliens?” Erik Bonnar, an ICE field office director, said.

“It’s unfortunate that our communities face dangerous consequences because of inflexible state laws that protect criminal aliens,” he said.

“These sanctuary policies have unintended, but very real, and often tragic consequences to public safety,” he said.
