The mother of two was gunned down in her driveway during an attempted robbery. According to local station KRQE, the suspect, Luis Talamantes Romero, pled guilty to federal charges of illegally entering the United States for the fourth time.

Sam Vigil spoke out against sanctuary cities and crimes and said these places attract criminal activity and bad actors.

Vigil made the argument that there are current policies that protect individuals who should not be in the country to begin with.
