Illegal Arrested For Woman’s Murder:  A illegal alien will be arraigned today for the murder of a San Jose, CA woman in her home last month.  Nico Savidge, Mark Gomez and Jason Green of the San Jose Mercury News report that 24-year-old Carlos Eduardo Arevalo-Carranza, an El Salvadorian national, was arrested Monday for the stabbing murder of 59-year-old Banbi Larson after his DNA matched evidence uncovered at the murder scene.  At the time of the arrest, items stolen from the victim’s home were found with Arevalo-Carranza, who has several prior arrests on drug, theft and burglary charges.  ICE officials report that they had asked local law enforcement to detain Arevalo-Carranza for deportation at lease nine times, but because Santa Clara is a sanctuary county, police were prohibited from honoring the requests.   A member of the county Board of Supervisors, who supports the policy, told reporters that ICE should have secured a warrant rather than requesting a two-day hold.  Regardless of the county policy, California’s Sanctuary State law also prohibits police agencies from holding illegal aliens for ICE.
