Whenever I see "man accused" of attacking immigrants, I wonder if he was an immigrant himself. In this case, a young man named Andres Sanchez is accused of impersonating a cop and threatening immigrants with deportation:

Sometimes the clue that a criminal is an illegal (these would be DREAMers, of course) will be that there's an immigration hold on him, but LA County, doesn't, as far as I know, cooperate with immigration authorities, and there's nothing about that in the linked statements from the LA DA's office
, or Pomona PD.
But there wouldn't be—Pomona is also cooperating
with California's "sanctuary state" plan.
But even if the MSM knew, the headline would still make the immigrant the victim—see American Nightmare—In Chinatown Murder Case, The VICTIM Is An Immigrant, The KILLER Is…[Censored].
