Illegal Alien Felon Released by Obama – Then Murders 21-Year Old Convenience Store Clerk


Above: Monsters among us: illegal alien released by Obama’s ICE commits a senseless murder

by Jason DeWitt | Top Right News

There’s blood on Barack Obama’s hands, say many in Arizona tonight, as it was revealed that an illegal alien felon who was released due to the president gutting immigration enforcement, murdered a young convenience store clerk in Mesa.

QuickTrip (QT) employee Grant Ronnebeck, only age 21, was working the graveyard shift when illegal alien Apolinar Altamirano demanded cigarettes after dumping some change on the checkout counter.

According to Mesa Police spokesman Detective Steve Berry, Ronnebeck told the 29-year old  suspect, Apolinar Altamirano, “I can’t give you the cigarettes until I count the money.” Berry said that although Ronnebeck did give the cigarettes to Altamirano, it wasn’t enough to save his life. The suspect then proceeded to shoot Ronnebeck anyway.

The soulless beast Altamirano is then seen on video stepping over the body to retrieve another 2 packs of cigarettes.

Grant had worked for QT since he was 16, and was beloved by customers and staff alike.

But adding outrage to insanity, it turns out Altamirano was a convicted felon who had beeb released by Obama’s Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) division on bond, despite that fact that he was being processed for deportation.

AZ Central reported:

The man accused of gunning down a Mesa convenience-store clerk over a pack of cigarettes was facing deportation proceedings but had been released from federal custody on bond, authorities said Monday.

Federal immigration authorities launched the proceedings two years ago against Apolinar Altamirano, but he was released on a $10,000 bond shortly after his conviction on a burglary charge.

Mr. Altamirano’s removal case was still pending with the immigration courts at the time of his most recent arrest.

Worse yet, while out on bond, this dangerous illegal alien threatened to kill a woman, and a judge told ICE of the threats — but they did nothing to stop him:

While Altamirano, 29, was out of custody, two injunctions against harassment were issued against him by a Mesa Municipal Court judge. “I am in fear for my life,” one woman wrote, adding that Altamirano had threatened to kill her “plenty of times” and pointed a gun at her boyfriend, according to court records.

The judge notified immigration authorities of the order.

The latest order was served on Altamirano on Jan. 19. Three days later, he murdered Ronnebeck.

Violent felons set loose upon America’s streets by Barack Obama’s insane dismantling of immigration enforcment. Where are the politicians in Washington to stand up to this madness?

Jessica Vaughan, director of policy studies for the Center for Immigration Studies, said the case shows how Obama’s ICE sets an impossibly high standard for which illegal aliens can be held by agents — who have no choice but to release them according to Obama’s political and race-driven policy.

“There’s no logical reason for ICE to let people like that out of custody instead of (deporting them),” Vaughan said. “they are playing Russian roulette with public safety,” she said.

Altamirano was born in Mexico, claimed he entered the United States illegally since at 14 — that’s right, a “DREAMER.”

Altamirano never attended school in the U.S. and the highest grade he completed in school was fifth. He had been working as a landscaper prior to his arrest. 

And here I thought Sen, Dick Durbin said the “Dreamers” were all valedictorians and top-notch students. Funny how we never hear about the ones that are droputs and violent felons. That would upset the narrative.

Altamirano was arrested on suspicion of first-degree murder, burglary, armed robbery, unlawful flight and misconduct involving weapons since he is a prohibited possessor, after a high-speed chase that ended with an officer intentionally ramming into the car driven by Altamirano in Phoenix.

A record as long as his arm — and one that would keep any American behind bars. But not illegals, Obama’s “chosen ones.”

QuikTrip representatives said Grant Ronnebeck had been employed with the company for 4 ½ years.

“On behalf of the QuikTrip Family, we wish to express our deepest sympathies, our thoughts, and prayers to Grant’s family, his friends, and co-workers. There are not enough words to capture our profound sorrow. QuikTrip is absolutely devastated and heart-broken by the tragic loss of Grant,” the company said in a statement.

“[Ronnebeck] was extremely dedicated and very well-liked by his co-workers and customers. We will miss Grant’s constant smile and his drive to be the best.”

“Grant had a big heart. He was loving and outgoing and full of life,” a crying friend of Ronnebeck’s, Samantha Hansen, told AZ Central. “It’s unfair. To think it’s over a couple of packs of cigarettes. It’s not right,” she said.

It’s not right to have a president that puts the rights of illegal alien killers over the lives of innocent Americans.

    I’m sure that the Obama administration determined that since the store clerk had a job and worked for a living, he was a Republican, while the illegal immigrant / gunman was a potential Democratic voter.

    • HarryTheCat

      And that young man, at age 21, had done more actual work in five years than Obama has done in his entire lifetime.

  • Tinaw1969

    Thanks Obama. I hope the family sues Obama personally since it is his fault that man was set loose on us!

    • Ken Darby

      Agree 100%. Luckily we elect Governor’s here in Arizona, that at least try to stand up to the loony Left. Or we would have more of this.. This probably happens daily in CA, but it is not reported!

    • Wiggle D

      What makes you think he would pay the family anything? Especially from his own checkbook.

    • TigerFan

      You are the most pure form of fool. Congratulations.

  • gordo

    Obama asked Congress for more money back in July to clear up the backlog. Idiots believe otherwise and blame it on him alone. Lots of guilt here.

    • DisgustedBySoCalledPres

      He’s not capable of feeling. Racist hypocrite is probably ok with this since it was a white man murdered.

      • alexa

        Don’t know what that means because the President is half white also.

        • William Bush

          Have you not listened to Obama’s rhetoric on race? He’s always quick to accuse the white guy of fault, but won’t admit to any fault by the colored guy.

        • MJean

          Sure…… and if he had a son he could have been Trayvon Martin. What’s your point again ????

          • alexa

            Trayvon was half white too?
            What’s your point?

          • MJean

            Both of his parents were black or African American. Call.

        • Wiggle D

          Culturally, he chose to support the black side of the race card. His bias overrides his debatable genetic heritage

    • Lenny Dudley

      always more money it is Bush’s fault, the dog ate my homework…get real

      • MJean

        Real is Obozo using taxpayer $$ to try to topple Israel’s Benjamin Netanyahu.

    • Ken Darby

      90% of those scheduled for deportation hearings do not show up. O’Bama asking for “Money” to speed things up is a Smoke Screen. How about we not let them roam free in the 1st Place.. Either lock them up, or deport them the moment they are caught!

      • MJean

        Oh yeah, that’s a law Obozo doesn’t like so he refuses to enforce it. To bad because he won’t enforce the law, more Americans are dying.

      • Wiggle D

        Too bad neither of those are financially feasible, nor are they effective. While Draconian, a bullet is the only true solution

        • Ken Darby

          Neither is letting hundreds of thousands cross the border. Do you know we are paying for housing and medical care for them.. ? I’m sure you do. But sure, let more innocent people die while working at a quick Trip. Bus tickets o the Border are cheap..!

          • Wiggle D

            Why are you flaming my a$$ for this?

          • harborwolf

            Seriously, you said “a bullet is the only solution” and he responded like you said “WE NEED TO HELP THESE POOR PEOPLE!!!”

          • Wiggle D

            They don’t want help. They want everything we have for free

    • Bob Edwards

      probably sitting,on harry reids dick i mean desk
      obama isnt doing anything about immigration except letting them in

  • Kelly M

    Since many of you are so outraged by his death, instead of sitting around blaming Obama for a failed immigration policy (that should have deported this guy back in 2012) here is a link to his gofundme page. Show you truly care about his life –

    • Wiggle D

      Why should we pay for his death? Make Barry accountable for this.

    • MJean

      “Since many of us are outraged by his death”? Are you effin kidding me? How dare you lecture us over being outraged over yet another death of an American citizen by this illegal scum invading our country.

      A failed immigration policy? Obama has NO immigration policy. All he has is a refusal to enforce the immigration laws we have in place now. He’s a pos traitor to this country & is as guilty for these murders as if he pulled the dam trigger himself.

      I’ll contribute to this poor young man’s name but I’ll also gladly contribute to someone’s ammo cost as well.

    • Bob Edwards

      so no one can be outraged kelly? or blame obama?

    • Guest

      You’re an idiot.

      What is it like to be COMPLETELY OBLIVIOUS to the real point?

  • Wiggle D

    Stop getting ICE involved, as they are totally useless. Our cops should take them out then and there for repeat border violations and dump them at the border as a warning.

    • harborwolf

      How about just put a bullet in his head?

      Who would lose sleep over that?

  • Terry

    Blame congress too for not having him impeached and tried for treason.

      you’ll all believe anything (y)

  • BoeingDriver

    My friend is a star student from war torn Ukraine. She has a bachelors degree in business and has been accepted to Arizona State University to pursue her masters degree. She has the money to attend but has been denied a student visa by the U.S. Embassy twice. Our government denies intelligent, educated individuals from Eastern Europe to study in the USA legally, but then allows 5 million lawbreakers to stay in our country.

    Our government is broken and immigration needs to change drastically!

  • gonzalsyl7

    Really?!? I’m an American and even can c how stupid this article is. If the guy that did this was American would we even here about this?? Noooooo…….come one, let’s not b so one sided. Richard Angelo, Charles Albright. …….we’re they illegals???

    • Apartheid World

      But he is not an America he is a Mexican and in Mexico he would of never had the chance to murder Mr. Ronnebeck. Lets start by cleaning our house and send ALL illegals back. The worry about US crime problems next.

  • Herman Vogel

    I’ve said it once and I’ll say it again. We need to adopt Mexico’s immigration laws. We would be safer.

  • Raymond M Ursillo

    do you take it in the ass for money too ?

    • Bob Edwards

      do you mean obama or felicia lol

    • ME 209

      This is what we (the royal we) get. For being so P.C. (A term coined by a liberal writer, for the Los Angeles Times) . All these guilty liberal whites. Letting these third world pieces of sh*t into our country. Feeling guilty for events that happened before their lifetime. The same reason this ass clown is our president. Sad!!

  • jplaist002

    50 cent solution would work just fine. Put out an APB and BOL for this guy, and give him an escort he will never forget. Better yet, put him in Joe Arpaio’s guest hotel.

  • Raymond M Ursillo

    well if no one stand up to close our borders this is going to keep happening,, CLOSE OUR BORDERS !!

    • ShadohMan

      how racist of you… *insert laugh here*

  • Shod Pell

    ICE has a part in this as the Head of ICE has the opportunity and duty to refuse obama’s illegal executive orders. There is no statue that forces an elected or appointed official to carry out illegal orders or directives. To shut obama down simply refuse to follow illegal orders and mandates. If obama fires the person for honoring their oath of office there is the courts to correct obama. Wonder how obama would handle 20 or so law suits at one time. Better yet how could Congress turn a blind eye to it, ’cause lip service by Congress ain’t getting it.

  • He worked there since he was 16 what a true American guy and this could have been avoid with a simple deportation.

  • Johnny Shishkabob

    “But that caucasian guy was ‘oppressing’ poor, widdle Altamirano, who is the kind of ‘American’ we LOVE, by having a job!! Can’t you Rethuglican h8ers see that?!?” said the leftist/DemoKKKrat.

    • Guest

      Funny… no replies to this one… they have no comment to make refuting you, thus showing how much of a bunch of moronic @sshats people are.

  • Johnny Shishkabob

    I’d trade 5 or 10 million illegal Mexican layabouts and murderers for any amount of Cubans, any day of the week. Let’s talk with the Castro brothers about this, ASAP!

  • GatorDog

    obama is such a loser. This kids blood is on obama’s head. My question is will this illegal still be able to use his DL to vote in the next election. I guess he’ll have to use an Absentee Ballet to do it from Jail, if they keep him this time.

    • gmailDierdre Thomas

      Better than Ass BUSH

      • Bryan Bell

        Better at being an Ass than Bush….By far, Dierdre..By Far!!!

  • akansan

    We need to put a stop to these failed policies.

  • harriet

    Glad he didn’t bow this time to the saudi prince. He is such a knucklehead!

  • Keatonbuster

    Thanks a lot, President Obama, you abysmal piece of loathsome garbage.

    • gmailDierdre Thomas


      • Bryan Bell

        Yeah, Obama…..what Dierdre said!!!!

      • Keatonbuster

        I see. Praise the murderer. Continue conversing with yourself.

  • Montanagirl1

    I can’t believe this crap. Obama should be indited for murder, the blood of this fine young man is on his hands. No wonder gun sales are skyrocketing! Obama releases monsters into our midst to prey on innocent citizens. He can go to hell.

    • TigerFan

      And you should go to school.

      • harborwolf

        Nice… way to refute the points.

        It might have been a bit rambling and ‘crazy’, but you make NO impact with your statement other than to show that you’re a lazy douche with no real grasp of the issues.

        • TigerFan

          What points, you inbred piece of trash?

          Obama should be “indited”? Why don’t you learn to frigging spell?

          And Obama didn’t release anyone “into our midst to prey on innocent citizens.”

          Guess what, dumbfck, crimes like this happen every day. Because you are such a low-life, inbred fktard that you would believe this one senseless crime proves your stupid anti-Obama delusions just proves your mother should have exercised her rights under Roe v. Wade where you are concerned.

          • harborwolf

            I didn’t even make those comments you stupid douche.

            Way to read.

          • TigerFan

            I retract the things that don’t apply to you, as I was busy smacking a couple of other dumfks at one time and got lost. But, there are some things in there for you too.

  • Tim Long

    Sounds about right Obama won’t take the blame for it . It will be some other shlep . Or he will not say anything about it. You know that transparent administration he put together?

  • wpjokari
  • DMChasmail

    A horrible crime; a tragedy. But it’s also tragic that anyone is blaming Obama. Convince me that during any other Administration there were no horrible crimes performed by illegal immigrants. And you’ll have to think hard to convince me since I “grew up in a police department” since the 60s and then for how many years during the 70s and 80s I worked in one. Just checking for any double standards here, or for folks who allow their hatred to become their ruler, making them blind.

    • TigerFan

      Man, you are asking the lowest rung of thinkers to validate their positions. Good luck with that.

      • harborwolf

        ‘Lowest rung of thinkers’

        You’ll have to explain that statement… there might be some idiots spouting right-wing propaganda, but there are also people making salient points about this issue… did you just ignore ALL of them?

        And we aren’t talking about OTHER administrations right now, we’re talking about the guy that has been in office the last two terms and has GUTTED the immigration policies of this country…. do you not understand that?

        Did you really just semi-invoke Bush? How much of a loser leftist nut-job are you? Bush has been gone for YEARS now… let it go.

        • TigerFan

          Lowest rung of thinkers – People with faulty and deficient thought processes. The intellectually challenged. Rubes. Cretins. Those who can categorize their entire lives as “a blonde moment.”
          And please, regale me with your delusions of how President Obama has GUTTED!!!!!!!!!! our immigration system. A system all agree is broken beyond repair and has been for decades.
          Oh, and here is the best part! PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE tell me how I “semi-invoked” (not an actual word) Bush. This should be not the least bit rational.

          • harborwolf

            It’s okay… your boyfriend is a bad president… you can admit it now.

            We’re here for you.

          • TigerFan

            My boyfriend? Are you jealous?
            That is such a typical response from you short-bus commandos that is isn’t even worth a chuckle anymore.
            And your lame-dick opinion of his presidency is just that…

    • Apartheid World

      Well Arizona did have laws to but him out of the US. Do you not recall the fight as Obamas administration went and cut each one of the laws the could of been used to send this gut back to Mexico. But you are a liberal nut and you do not give a fly F – you migt want to go to – and watch a little video done by his brother or go talk to his mom etc. but you are liberal scum and dirt. FYI: if he was deported like every other illegal should be the odds are very good today that Mr. Ronnebeck would be watching the super bowl this weekend like the rest of America. But he is not do to some liberal bleeding hearts in DC.

  • TigerFan

    Are you really such a cretin that you believe this, or are you just punking the conservative cretins who look for any excuse to blame random events on the president?
    I am honestly curious.

  • TigerFan

    Interesting that my post on the ludicrous nature of this story got deleted.
    I guess being called out for being a goob is kind of embarrassing.

  • TigerFan

    In other news, President Obama to blame for everything right-wingers don’t like…

    • harborwolf

      Maybe not everything… but he’s the driving force behind THIS particular issue. Denying that just makes YOU look like a fanatic left-winger that doesn’t think his guy could do anything wrong.

      Passive aggressive loser.

      • TigerFan

        God, you are one sad little paint-chip eater.

        • harborwolf

          Someone’s obsessed with me… I’m flattered.

  • recon

    That’s why AZ allows Constutional Carry

  • TigerFan

    Jason, I want to thank you for this piece. It gave me wonderful opportunities to mock people who will believe anything they read on the internet. I do so enjoy that.
