(Western Journalism) The suspect in the California shooting rampage that left two sheriff’s deputies dead was known to law enforcement in Arizona, specifically to Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio. The alleged killer reportedly had been in Arpaio’s jail, but had twice been turned over to ICE and then deported…only to return to the United States.
Identified as Luis Bracamonte, he surrendered Friday afternoon in Auburn, Calif., after an intense manhunt that lasted several hours. Bracamonte was arrested in Maricopa County in 1996 on drug-related charges and was previously deported, Arpaio says.
Sheriff Joe was visibly angry when he appeared on “Your World with Neil Cavuto,” telling the Fox News host that he will call for a congressional investigation into the federal government’s repeated release of illegal immigrants like murder suspect Bracamonte.
“This has to stop when these guys keep coming back,” said the Maricopa County lawman.
