A legal immigrant spent Christmas day apart from his wife and kid, to serve and protect… only to be gunned down by an illegal immigrant.
Does anything explain where Left and Right divide on the issue of immigration in starker terms than this sad tale?
Newman’s police chief broke down in tears while describing what happened to Officer Ronil Singh, who moved here from Fiji lawfully with dreams of being a cop.
Here’s a family photo, taken just hours before his death.
What makes this story all the more tragic was that he was working an overtime shift and responding to a DUI call. Singh was murdered by an illegal immigrant who fled the scene. Singh radioed for help and returned fire, but help arrived too late.
Governor Jerry Brown issued a statement after the shooting.
“On behalf of all Californians, Anne (Brown’s wife) and I extend our condolences to Corp. Singh’s wife, young son, loved ones and colleagues,” Brown said. “Our hearts are with the entire community of Newman and law enforcement officers across the state who risk their lives every day to protect and serve the people of California.”
Newman is a small city off Interstate 5 north of Los Banos. Singh had been a police officer there since 2011. He was married and the father of a 5-month-old son.

Governor Moonbeam should sit this one out. One of the illegal immigrants he works so VERY hard to advocate for and defend just murdered a LAWFUL immigrant who arrived the way Trump and his supporters want ALL immigrants to come into the country.
Isn’t this story exactly what the government ‘shutdown’ showdown is all about in the first place?
Trump wants everyone coming to America to come through what he metaphorically described as a ‘big very beautiful door’ in that wall. Trump just wants a wall there to keep out the miserable bastards who gun down good cops at traffic stops.
Schumer and Nancy WANT those miserable bastards to come in unopposed. Trump does not.
