ICE subpoenas San Diego Sheriff’s Department for migrant-arrest information

SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – For the first time, federal immigration authorities Friday served subpoenas on a local law enforcement agency in California — the San Diego County Sheriff’s Department — in a bid to compel it to release migrant-arrest information protected by sanctuary state legislation. U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials took the unusual step because state law prevents the department from honoring immigration “detainers” — holds on people living in the country illegally in local custody — and “prohibits it from granting requests for non-public information to assist in locating criminal aliens that have been or will be released from custody,” according to an ICE statement. Late Friday afternoon, the sheriff’s department acknowledged that it had received the four subpoenas “and is in the process of reviewing them.” “If able to, the department will comply with the lawful requests in a timely manner,” said Lt. Ricardo Lopez, media relations director for the sheriff’s department. According to ICE, most of the nation’s local law enforcement agencies willingly provide federal immigration officials with information about people arrested on suspicion of criminal offenses who are living in…

Democratic Candidates Bring Campaigns to Nevada

As the Democratic presidential race hurtles toward Nevada, candidates in the still-crowded field are jumping into their first test in a racially diverse state with solid union muscle and shaky plans for a presidential caucus. Nevada has no obvious front-runner, though Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders heads into the contest on strong footing. The state has received only a sliver of the attention of the first two states on the primary calendar, Iowa and New Hampshire. Looking at the jumbled field, the state’s most powerful union decided to take a pass on endorsing a candidate, rather than make a divisive choice or risk picking a loser. Most of the state’s most prominent officials have stayed neutral. The open race has every Democrat spending much of the next week searching for fortunes in the state’s working-class neighborhoods, union halls, casino convention halls and stuccoed suburbs. For Sanders and former South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg, it’s a chance to prove their staying power after strong finishes in Iowa and New Hampshire. For former Vice President Joe Biden and Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren, it could be a life…

San Jose: Man knocked unconscious during parking dispute

SAN JOSE – A man was caught on camera punching and knocking another man to the ground during a dispute over a vehicle parked on a red curb in San Jose on Friday afternoon. The altercation was reported about 12:50 p.m. in the 300 block of North 3rd Street, near East Julian Street, said San Jose police Sgt. Enrique Garcia. The suspect left the scene in a gray Toyota SUV before officers arrived. Garcia said the victim was taken to a hospital with injuries that were not considered life-threatening. Jill Neal filmed the dispute from her second-story apartment. She had just gotten out of the shower when she heard two men arguing. She said she yelled at them to break it up. The men ignored or didn’t hear her, Neal said, so she grabbed her phone and started recording. Neal said parking is tight in the area and people often stop on the red curb to wait for a space to open up. But the red curb is near a driveway and vehicles that stop there make it difficult to access. That’s what sparked the…

New video shows 2018 crash that killed two Antioch teens; alleged driver to stand trial

MARTINEZ — Two videos have been made public showing the fiery 2018 crash on Highway 24 that claimed the lives of two Antioch teens, as well as the atmosphere inside the car minutes before the tragedy. The videos, obtained through a public records request, show a 2000 Honda Civic spinning out on Highway 24, crashing into a jersey barrier, and exploding in a hail of sparks. The car flew off the highway just before the Interstate 680 junction and landed 40-50 feet below, police said. John Walizada, 18, and Dakarai Fagorala, 17, were both killed, and the car’s three other occupants — including the suspected driver, Ramya Ramey, 19 — were all seriously injured. Ramey has been charged with two counts of vehicular manslaughter, and prosecutors believe she was driving at speeds exceeding 90 mph when the Honda spun out. The crash happened shortly before 3:40 a.m. on Aug. 12, 2018, when the group of five friends — described by Fagorala’s mom as the “Breakfast Club” of Deer Valley High School — were heading back from a club in San Francisco. They had been close…
