In the June 22 sentencing she expressed anger that her son’s killers were in the country illegally. Such anger is entirely understandable for a grieving mother, but she got no sympathy from Superior Court judge Helene Gweon, a Schwarzenegger appointee who earned her JD at Harvard Law School and her BA at UC Berkeley.
“This case,” said Gweon, “has nothing to do with illegal aliens but it does have something to do with gangs.” Since both perpetrators of the triple murder are illegal aliens, that smackdown required the kind of cognitive dissonance not normally found in a judge.
The two illegals had already been convicted on three counts of first-degree murder on May 31. In California, judges can impose the death penalty for first-degree murder. In February a Yolo County judge imposed the death penalty on Marco Antonio Topete for murdering Deputy Jose Antonio Diaz with an assault rife. But in this case, three counts of first-degree murder were not enough.
Judge Gweon sentenced Delgado to three life terms without parole. Shooter Isidro-Aucencio also got three terms, plus two other lengthy terms. Both will fit well in prison culture and their multiple homicide will boost their status. The sentence sends the message to terrorists and criminals alike that they can enter the USA illegally, kill innocent people, and essentially get away with it.
President Obama favors a “Dream Act” for children of illegals. That takes priority over policies to protect children of American parents from violent criminals the federal government failed to keep out of the country.
