    A still greiving father, Steve Ronnebeck, shared with Breitbart Texas on Wednesday that a Mexican cartel “executed my son.” Ronnebeck’s son was killed by an illegal alien, self-proclaimed Sinaloa cartel member. The criminal alien is now facing charges for shooting Grant Ronnebeck during the 21-year-old’s overnight shift at the Mesa, Arizona, QT convenience store.

    “A man came in and wanted to buy cigarettes, dumped some change out on the counter and Grant wasn’t counting the change fast enough. The man pulled a gun, Grant offered up the cigarettes and the man executed him, shooting him in the face. Stepped over his body, grabbed two more packs of cigarettes and fled,” Ronnebeck said describing the incident that left Grant dead.

    The interview with Mr. Ronnebeck came immediately following his addressing a room full of law enforcement at the Southwest Border Sheriff’s Conference in Sierra Vista, Arizona.

    Ronnebeck said the illegally present foreign national had a drug background, was a “self-proclaimed member of the Sinaloa cartel, the Mexican Mafia,” and committed a sex crime and burglary.

    The prior burglary, according to Ronnebeck, was pleaded down from what he described as a home invasion and week-long sexual assault.

    The illegal alien, now charged in the murder of Ronnebeck’s son Grant, could face the death penalty, Ronnebeck told Breitbart Texas. “The trial does not start until 2017.”

    Grant’s Law, H.R. 2942, was constructed in response to the young man’s death.

    Hundreds attended Grant Ronnebeck’s funeral including coworkers and customers that knew him from QT. Steve Ronnebeck told the crowd gathered for the Southwest Border Sheriffs’ Conference that QT had to bring in workers from outside Mesa to cover shifts while Grant’s coworkers attended the memorial service.

    What message does Steve Ronnebeck have for other Americans?

    “I know that everyone can help by getting a hold of their elected officials, their Sheriff’s Department, speak out,” Ronnebeck explained. “This is a problem that’s plagued our country for years and now it’s getting to a point where lives are being lost and it’s not on a monthly basis. It’s actually a weekly and daily basis that these illegals are killing people. And I’m not saying that all illegals are bad, I’m in no way saying that.”

    Steve was asked how the loss of his son in these circumstances has effected his stance on illegal immigration.

    “My son and I had talked about illegal immigration,” he responded. “Most of our conversations were the side that, what it costs us as taxpayers. Ya know the border, we’d see reports on the border and the millions and almost billions of dollars that illegals are doing to these people’s farms and the properties down there and that was the extent of our conversations. We never really heard about the darker side of this. We heard about the cartels and the wars and so on and so forth, but it never really directly effected us.”

    Ronnebeck referenced a statistic that Breitbart News reported on in July: illegally present foreign nationals made up 37 per cent of federal sentences in fiscal year 2014. The reportstated, “Broken down by some of the primary offenses, illegal immigrants represented 16.8 percent of drug trafficking cases, 20.0 percent of kidnapping/hostage taking, 74.1 percent of drug possession, 12.3 percent of money laundering, and 12.0 percent of murder convictions.” These numbers come despite a Pew Research estimate that illegal aliens account for only 3.5 per cent of the U.S. population.

    “You can’t turn a blind eye to murder. That’s basically what they’re doing,” Ronnebeck said of cities with sanctuary city policies. The killing of Kate Steinle was a similar case to that of Grant Ronnebeck, involving an illegal alien accused of killing an American citizen. The confessed perpetrator in the Steinle case said he had previously chosen San Francisco for the city’s lax immigration enforcement policies.

    Uncle of slain Mesa store clerk assails ICE at hearing
    Uncle of slain Mesa store clerk assails ICE at hearing

    • The uncle of a slain Mesa store clerk is speaking out against federal immigration authorities
    • He says ICE is jeopardizing public safety by releasing convicted criminals
    • The man accused in the killing was in the country illegally and had been released on bond

    The uncle of the Mesa store clerk who authorities say was gunned down by an undocumented immigrant out on bond told a House panel Wednesday that the U.S. government is jeopardizing public safety by releasing convicted criminals.
    Immigration and Customs Enforcement "should be doing its job for the American people with the American people's safety and security first and foremost in mind," Michael Ronnebeck told House members during a government oversight and reform subcommittee hearing.

    Ronnebeck's nephew, 21-year-old Grant Ronnebeck,was killed Jan. 22 while working at a QuickTrip store in Mesa.
    The man charged in the killing, Apolinar Altamirano, 29, was in the country illegally. He had been released from custody in 2013 by Immigration and Customs Enforcement after posting a bond even though he had been convicted of a felony burglary charge.

    Ronnebeck said he hopes the death of his nephew will lead to a change in government immigration policies.

    "It is my family's greatest desire that Grant Ronnebeck's legacy will be more than a fading obituary, a cemetery plot, or a fond memory," Ronnebeck said during the hearing. "Instead, we want Grant's death to be a force for change and reform in the immigration policies of this great nation."

    ICE has come under fire from critics who say Ronnebeck's death highlights a larger problem of convicted criminals being released under President Barack Obama's immigration-enforcement policies.

    In a letter sent to House members after the slaying, U.S. Rep. Matt Salmon, R-Ariz., called on the Obama administration to end its current policy of "catch and release."

    "I believe there simply is no excuse for ICE to be releasing individuals like this back onto our streets to endanger and kill hardworking Americans," wrote Salmon, whose district includes Mesa.

    ICE released Altamirano in January 2013 after he posted a $10,000 bond pending the outcome of his removal proceedings in Immigration Court.

    He was taken into custody by ICE after pleading guilty to a felony burglary charge stemming from a 2012 incident.
    ICE officials have said that the agency has limited resources and therefore places highest priority on removing the most dangerous criminals.

    Altamirano was deemed eligible for bond under the law because a review of his criminal history showed only the 2012 burglary conviction, noting that the Maricopa County Attorney's office had allowed him to plead down to a burglary charge deemed "nonviolent."

    Wednesday's hearing was held to look into the Obama administration's immigration-enforcement policies, which Republicans say have become increasingly lax. "The federal government is failing to enforce the laws that protect the public's safety," said U.S. Rep. Ron DeSantis, R-Fla., who chaired the subcommittee hearing.

    At the hearing, Ronnebeck described how his nephew was working at 4 a.m. when a man walked in, dumped a jar of change on the counter and demanded a pack of cigarettes.

    "Grant explained that he needed to count the coins before he could give the man the cigarettes," Ronnebeck said. "The man then pulled a gun, and stated, 'You're not gonna take my money' and 'You're not gonna give me my cigarettes.' Grant immediately offered up the cigarettes to the man, who shot him in the face, killing him."

    This is so MADDENING! I have to ask this question, after 30 years of these governmental imposed illegal deaths upon Americans, what would motivate us to ever elect again FROM THOSE TWO MAJOR PARTIES AGAIN? America, that is disgraceful, disrespectful of the victims families, as well as aiding and abetting the destruction of American culture! Why would you do that again?

    It seems already obvious that you will do it again, so answering why should be quite simple to do.
