An anti-immigration video that was tweeted out by Pres. Trump showed police murderer Luis Bracamontes cheerfully talking about killing Sacramento County officers. It claimed the Democrats let him into the country. However, records show he was arrested in ’96 and deported in ’97 during the Clinton presidency. He was arrested again in ’98 but released by Sherriff Arpaio’s office, a Republican. He returned and was married in 2002 when Bush was president and committed his murders in 2014.
- Is this video effective regardless of who let Bracamonte back in the country?
- Do you believe immigrants commit more crimes than people born in the US?
President Donald Trump’s closing argument for the midterm elections includes a tweet featuring convicted cop killer Luis Bracamontes, who killed two Sacramento-area deputies in a 2014 rampage.
The tweet features video of Bracamontes spewing profanities while on trial in Sacramento County Superior Court, a frequent occurrence in the years of court hearings he faced.
But the president’s claim that “Democrats let him into our country” is not entirely accurate, and neither is the claim that “Democrats let him stay.”
Bracamontes, who is now on death row at San Quentin State Prison for the October 2014 slayings of Sacramento County Sheriff’s Deputy Danny Oliver and Placer County Sheriff’s Deputy Michael Davis Jr., first came into the United States in 1993, when he was 16 and Democrat Bill Clinton was president.
