The man suspected to have shot and killed a police officer during a traffic stop in Newman, California, was in the country illegally, according to the Stanislaus County sheriff.
California authorities are still searching for the illegal alien who murdered a small-town police officer the day after Christmas. The incident prompted a tweet from President Donald Trump on Thursday.
There is right now a full scale manhunt going on in California for an illegal immigrant accused of shooting and killing a police officer during a traffic stop. Time to get tough on Border Security. Build the Wall!

President Donald Trump really needs to hold fireside chats and show pictures of American Citizens that have been murdered and maimed by illegals aliens.
Also, he should go into great detail about the financial costs. He will be able to quell all the rumors and explain his policies in great detail without any interruption from the MSM.
