    Triple US Murder Sparks Immigration Debate

    The city of Newark has a new high-tech plan to combat gun violence. Mayor Cory Booker is set to unveil the new crime-fighting initiative Tuesday, but it comes too late for the victims of last week's execution-style murders.

    There is anger and frustration over the death of three young friends in a schoolyard. Newark residents are demanding Booker's resignation, but instead, he is planning to unveil a $3.2 million surveillance-type program.

    New acoustic sensors and surveillance cameras are the latest sign of stepped-up security, as police continue to round up and charge suspects in the killing Iofemi Hightower, Deshan Harvey and Terrence Aeriel, and the attempted murder of Natasha Aeriel.

    Three suspects are in custody -- two teens and 28-year-old Jose Carranza, who was actually in this country illegally from Peru and had already been arrested twice this year.

    "This is someone who committed a crime and was walking around -- and was walking around free," said Newark Councilman Ron Rice.

    Carranza was free on $150,000 bail and was facing charges of aggravated assault and sexual abuse of a child at the time of the Newark murders.

    Because of a loophole, he was released from custody. That's because local authorities aren't required to report the immigration status of the people they arrest.
