undocumented immigrant accused in the murder of a san jose woman has rekindled the debate over to what extent local law enforcement should cooperate with federal authorities. kron four's rob fladeboe explains. (suspect mug) carlos eduardo arevalo carranza, an undocumented immigrant with a long criminal history, was arrested in connection with the brutal murder of 59 year old bambi larson of san jose. police on tuesday revealed that carranza had previously been locked up and released from the santa clara county jail twice in recent months. but before he allegedly stalked and stabbed larson to death late last month, carranza had been ordered detained by ice nine times in an effort to stop him from offending again. but those requests were thwarted by local sanctuary policies mean to protect undocumented immigrants who are not considered a threat to the public. echoing previous criticizm of the policy, san jose mayor sam liccardo in a statement said.. ".....the
current policy of ignoring detainer requests undermines public safety and violates common sense..." the mayor called for restarting the conversation on the policy. sheriff laurie smith said... '...it has been position that we should notify ice of all undocumented immigrants who are serious or violent felons...i will advocate for changing the policy..." also in a statement, county supervisor dave corteze reminded critics of the policy that the courts have thus far ruled that the county cannot hold immigrant suspects for ice without a warrant or judicial order unless the individual is currently charged with a crime. corteze insisted that ice is indeed notified ofcustody releases in real time but that ice often shows up too late to take action.county council james williams clarified the policy. james williams/santa clara county council "...there has been a lot of confusion about the law and about what the county can and cannot do. federal courts for many years all across the country have ruled that holding people beyond their release time violates the 4th amendment of the u.s. constitution and the only way we can legally hold people is if we have a
warrant..." change in local policy, law enforcement will continue to be caught in the middle trying to make a distinction between providing protection to otherwise law-abiding undocumented residents and violent criminals like carlos carranza who is one again locked up here in county jail. in san jose, rob fladboe, kron 4 news.
