Santa Rosa, California is proud of being a sanctuary city. It is so proud that on August 3, 2017 it arrested an illegal alien named Nery Israel Estrada-Margos for beating up his girlfriend. When his name was entered into the system he was immediately recognized by ICE as a violent illegal alien they had been looking for so they notified the Santa Rosa police department to detain him until ICE could pick him up.
Instead, the police notified ICE agents that they were going to release him if he was not picked up within 16 minutes of the notification. For the Santa Rosa officials this was some kind of sick joke since they knew the nearest ICE office was 60 miles way. Now, no one is laughing because two weeks after his release Estrada-Margos murdered his girlfriend.
