Arizona's got it right...

• Currently, over half of the individuals on the Washington State Patrol's Most Wanted List are suspected illegal immigrants.

• There are about 50,000 felony warrants currently issued in Washington State and according to a source in the U.S. Marshall's office between 30-40 percent are believed to be illegal immigrants.

Illegal Immigrants Crime Spree in WA.

One woman is dead and two others were raped recently and police say each crime was committed by a different illegal immigrant. One of the sexual assaults happened just hours before the Seattle city council passed an ordinance boycotting Arizona over its new immigration law.

Gregorio Luna Luna had a history of beating up his live-in girlfriend Griselda Ocampo Meza. He was also in the U.S. illegally. On May 1, Luna Luna was deported to Mexico. Three weeks later Meza was murdered in her apartment in a violent knife attack.

Franklin County prosecutors say Luna Luna slipped past the border again and killed Meza in front of their five year old son. He's in the county jail awaiting trial.

A suspected rapist in Edmonds, Washington has been deported at least 4 times according to Snohomish County prosecutors. Jose Lopez Madrigal has been charged with raping a woman next to a dumpster behind a Safeway store. A witness to the attack alerted police and Madrigal was taken into custody.

An illegal immigrant just convicted of his possible 3rd strike in Whatcom county- a rape of a homeless woman- has been deported to Mexico five times.

Washington State ranks 11th in the nation in the number of illegal immigrants with an estimated 150,000. They make up 2% of the state's population, but account for 4.5% of those in Washington prisons. In Franklin county, 14% of the jail bookings are illegal immigrants.

Currently, over half of the individuals on the Washington State Patrol's Most Wanted List are suspected illegal immigrants. 18 of the 26 on the list are Hispanic with no place of birth identified. Most are wanted for vehicular homicide and they have languished on the Most Wanted list for several years.

There are about 50,000 felony warrants currently issued in Washington State and according to a source in the U.S. Marshall's office between 30-40 percent are believed to be illegal immigrants.

We asked the State Patrol about the immigration status of the most wanted suspects and they told us they didn't know. Officials say that information is not important in trying to locate the individuals.

The U.S. Marshall's Service disagrees. Leaders of the region's fugitive task force say knowing immigration status can be very important to an investigation. In fact, the Marshall's have an office in Mexico to help with cross-border cases.

Last week, the city of Tacoma joined Seattle in admonishing Arizona for its immigration law. While the council did not go so far as passing a boycott, the ordinance does criticize Arizona for its stand against illegal immigration.

This is going to provide the same proof that changing the gun laws in several states did a few years ago. When people were given the right to carry, crime went down. When you get rid of criminals, crime goes down (somehow liberals can't grasp this notion) and welfare roles/costs go down, so do prison costs.


I would support increasing the budget in one area though... Don't deport illegals back to Mexico, deport them to deep South America. At least it will take them longer to re-enter the US illegally that way.

Oh, I think they grasp it very clearly. That's why they are up in arms over the AZ bill because it will actually be effective. They will lose all the illegal votes. The only reason democrats refuse to do anything about illegal immigration is because of the votes they will lose.

Sadly, they are more concerned about illegals being deported than illegals murdering American citizens in cold blood, illegals raping, torturing and beating other illegals, etc.

It's all about the votes. Sad but true.

What's really sad is how incredibly off-base that comment is.

I couldn't agree more. They're willing to sacrifice citizen's lives for votes.

I don't personally know any liberals who want any of that stuff.
