DA Brag Furious After Judge Makes Big Move Against Him

This week, an Arizona judge delivered a setback to Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg, who is supported by George Soros, by refusing to extradite a murder suspect to New York City.

During a hearing, Maricopa County Attorney Rachel Mitchell opposed the extradition of Raad Almansoori, 26, who is accused of beating a woman to death at a Manhattan hotel, back to Bragg’s jurisdiction.

Mitchell argued that Bragg has a reputation for being too lenient with violent suspects. Court Commissioner Barbara Spencer sided with Mitchell, delivering a significant blow to Bragg, according to the Washington Examiner.

“Nothing can happen on the fugitive case other than there could be what’s called a governor’s directive, which is the document that would hold you instead of the governor’s warrant, or you would choose to sign a waiver,” Spencer informed Almansoori in court, as reported by KSAZ-TV.

In response, Bragg emphasized that his priority is the pursuit of justice. “Seeking justice for victims and survivors is our priority at the Manhattan D.A.’s Office,” a spokesperson for the DA’s office told the New York Post. “We do not stand on ceremony but prioritize the integrity of the process. We are proceeding as we do in every case involving an out-of-state arrest: following the facts and the law to ensure justice is served.”

Manhattan prosecutors can still petition Gov. Katie Hobbs (D) to overturn the judge’s ruling and agree to extradite Almansoori.

Mitchell subtly criticized Bragg for what some perceive as his lenient approach to violent criminals, which influenced her decision not to extradite Almansoori, who allegedly fled to Arizona after murdering Denisse Oleas-Arancibia, 38.

“Having observed the treatment of violent criminals in the New York area by the Manhattan D.A. there, Alvin Bragg,” Mitchell stated last month, “I think it’s safer to keep him here and keep him in custody so that he cannot be out doing this to individuals either in our state, county, or anywhere in the United States.”

Police report that the suspect also confessed to stabbing another woman and sexually assaulting yet another after arriving in Arizona, according to the Examiner.

Immigration has emerged as the top issue this election cycle for an increasing number of Americans, a new survey reveals.

“Significantly more Americans name immigration as the most important problem facing the U.S. (28%) than did a month ago (20%). Immigration has now surpassed the government as the most frequently cited problem, after the two issues tied for the top position the past two months. The government ranked first each month from January through November 2023,” Gallup reported this week.

The latest poll indicates that 20% of Americans view the government as their biggest issue, with the economy (12%) and inflation (11%) close behind. Immigration is the only issue that has shown significant change in the past month, Gallup added.

Immigration was also a major concern for Americans during Trump’s administration, particularly in 2018 when he faced a surge of illegal crossings while battling a GOP-led Congress for border wall funding.

In a separate survey query, a record-high 55% of U.S. adults—an eight-point increase from the previous year—indicated that “large numbers of immigrants entering the United States illegally” represent a critical threat to U.S. vital interests. The previous high was 50% in 2004, Gallup noted.

“While many Americans regard the economy, generally, or inflation, specifically, as the most important problem facing the U.S., far more people name immigration. Immigration now sits alone at the top of the most important problem list, something it has done only occasionally in Gallup’s trend and not since 2019,” Gallup concluded. “Although their economic assessments have improved, Americans remain largely dissatisfied with the state of the nation and the job federal leaders are doing.”
