PHOENIX -- A statewide police union says there is new information
about how the man accused of killing a Valley police officer was
allowed to remain in the United States.
Buckeye Police Officer Rolando Tirado was killed nearly two weeks ago
while doing off-duty security work at a swap meet in South Phoenix.
Following that shooting, Immigration and Customs Enforcement told CBS
5 News that the suspect, Cesar Quiroz, should have been deported to
Mexico after serving time at Folsom Prison in California. ICE blamed
a clerical error in California.
The same information was later given to the Arizona Police
Association, which represents more than 10,000 officers from at least
20 different agencies across the state. Union leader Brian Livingston
accused California officials of intentionally overlooked Quiroz's
"We know the liberal politics that go on in California and how they
feel about the immigration status and about deporting individuals who
are in this country illegal," Livingston said. "This we believe
highlights that problem."
But Friday, the APA said the state of California is not to blame
because officials there contacted ICE before Quiroz was released. ICE
classified Quiroz as a United States citizen.
Quiroz was legally in the country on a green card at one time, but he
has ties to a violent street gang and numerous felony convictions
dating back several years, police said. The gang ties and felonies
violate his green card status.
The Arizona Police Association a statement which read, in part, "The
APA wishes to apologize to the California Department of Corrections
for any inference that might have been made that their actions in
this heartbreaking incident were anything less than professional."
Cesar Quiroz was shot at the scene and died.
