California cops are ‘frustrated’ with sanctuary laws stopping them from working with ICE over the twice-deported illegal alien who went on a deadly crime spree before killing himself following a high-speed chase.
Tulare County Sheriff Mike Boudreaux said California’s sanctuary law prevented him from honoring ICE’s detainer on Gustavo Garcia who carried out a crime spree that left one person dead and several others wounded before leading police on a 100mph chase.
The comments from Tulare County Sheriff Mike Boudreaux come following the death of Gustavo Garcia, a 36-year-old who police say embarked on a ‘reign of terror’ robbing a convenience store, shooting and killing a person and firing at buildings before crashing a truck that he had stolen. The day-long crime spree that began Sunday in the Fresno area also left five injured, including one critical, and Lindsay Police suspect Garcia was involved in an additional murder there.
During the chase Monday that ended in the crash that left Garcia dead, he drove the wrong way at speeds of up to 100 mph and hit four other cars – something that he appeared to have done on purpose, police said.
“We are very frustrated with the fact that the way the laws are set up currently that law enforcement hands are tied,” Boudreaux said Wednesday, noting that in years past, Garcia – who had been in police custody shortly before the rampage — would have been handed over to ICE in cooperation with them.

ICE says this is an unfortunate and tragic example of how public safety is impacted by laws or policies limiting local law enforcement agencies’ ability to cooperate with ICE.
Gustavo Garcia a previously deported illegal alien ‘shoots dead California gas station attendant, shoots two more strangers, robs a convenience store, carjacks a truck and then leads cops on a 100mph high-speed chase before killing himself in a wrong-way crash. This is how much California cares for illegals over its own natural born citizens.
Every victim and their surviving families should sue every State Legislator that voted for California’s awful “sanctuary law” and especially Governor Moonbeam for signing it into law for them being accomplices to this nightmare. They all have blood on their hands from this tragedy.
