Los Angeles, CA. In seven-minute video news blog the Full Disclosure Network™ presents L. A. County District Attorney Steve Cooley, Supervisor Michael Antonovich and Sheriff Leroy Baca describing how criminal aliens are NOT prosecuted under California’s Three Strikes Law. This presentation is moderated by Emmy Awarding winning host Leslie Dutton and is compiled of video clips from exclusive interviews with law enforcement, prosecution and elected officials. These interviews were conducted to determine the enforcement policies of local agencies regarding criminal aliens.
Full Disclosure Network determined that when criminal aliens have been convicted of a crime in California, they serve their time in prison and then are deported out of the country. But according to law enforcement and elected officials, many if not most, of them come back to California six to ten times, each time they return, they are committing a felony vilolation of U. S. Immigration law, but are not prosecuted under the Three Strikes Law or by the Federal Government.
D A Steve Cooley told Full Disclosure Network’s™ Leslie Dutton, “Our Three Strikes Law does not take into consideration a person’s (illegal) status.” Sheriff Baca tells Dutton in the video blog that the Three Strikes Law applies to serious felonies such as assault, murder, or robbery. When asked why criminal aliens were not subject to the Three Strikes Law, SupervisorMichael Antonovich described the process as “it’s kind of like ‘Kings X sometimes’.
In this video news blog Sheriff Baca states that there are 40,000 illegal criminals in California State prisons right now and that criminal aliens occupy 23 percent of all the L. A. County jails. Without mentioning the failure to prosecute the repeated felonies by these criminal aliens, he went on to say the federal government should be paying for cost and care of these criminals in our jails. Baca also said it is costing California $170 million per year to house the criminal aliens and the Federal government is only re-imbursing $13 to $14 million per year.
