Governor Newsom of California skipped the funeral for Sherrif’s Deputy, 37-year-old Brian Ishmael, of El Dorado County, California. Brian was killed by two illegal aliens when a shootout occurred after answering a call about some stolen marijuanna.
Newsom failed to attend the funeral.
From Fox News:
“[Newsom] had an important meeting with PG&E,” D’Agostini said Thursday, according to The Sacramento Bee. “One morning out of his busy schedule to respect my deputy and his family I don’t think is too much to ask.”
U.S. Attorney McGregor Scott, during the same Thursday news conference, railed against laws in the state meant to frustrate federal immigration officials. Scott said those roadblocks led to a significant two-day delay in identifying the alleged killers. The delay could have given others potentially connected to the illegal drug growth operation or the murder an opportunity to skip town.
“We shouldn’t have to go through these hurdles to try to figure out who two guys are from Mexico who just killed a deputy sheriff,” Scott said, according to the Bee.
D’Agostini implored those reporting on the case to throw political correctness to the wind and clearly relay the facts – and failures — that led to Ishmael’s death.
“Please call this what this is,” D’Agostini said. “Don’t soften it. This tragedy was due to an illegal alien tending an illegal marijuana grow who murdered a deputy. That’s what it is.”
Just last month, California officials pulled out of an event honoring fallen police officers simply because Republican speakers would be there.
