Now we have this...
Prosecutors on Friday charged the deputy city clerk of Maywood with soliciting the murder of an outspoken councilman who has spearheaded the city's efforts to improve treatment of illegal immigrants.

Prosecutors allege that Hector Duarte sent threatening letters to Councilman Felipe Aguirre after he made national headlines for his efforts to make the small city south of downtown a sanctuary for illegal immigrants.

The letters criticized Aguirre's stance, but authorities contend that Duarte was really motivated by concerns about possible budget cuts that might reduce salaries or cost him his job.

They maintain that Duarte asked around to see whether anyone would be willing to kill Aguirre. Aguirre said the alleged plot came to light after a man was arrested a month ago during a drug bust and told police about the reputed solicitation.

Duarte is expected to be arraigned Monday and could not be reached for comment.
A reminder that demographics are destiny...
Maywood is one of the nation's most densely populated cities — nearly 45,000 people live in 1.2 square miles. An estimated 96% of the residents are Latino, and more than half are foreign-born.
And of course the funny...
"We need to get to a point where we can have a dialogue with our so-called opponents," he said. "We need some clarity and peace in the city."
When you stop enforcing the law things will get dangerous and goofy, it's not rocket science folks.
