When even the rabidly pro-illegal alien SFGate refrains from publishing Leftist editorials apologizing for SF's murderer-shielding Sanctuary City Policy, you know it's serious!
Instead, they bring in the conservative (by Bay Area standards) Debra Saunders...
July 1 was one of those evenings when you feel blessed to be in San
Francisco, especially if you are strolling along Pier 14. But every
reader knows what happened next: A bullet struck Kathryn Steinle, 32, as
she walked arm in arm with her father. Neither knew what had happened;
the shot killed a vibrant woman — for which an illegal immigrant with
seven felony convictions and five deportations has been charged. (Juan
Francisco Lopez-Sanchez has pleaded not guilty.) Tuesday, less than a
month later, Jim Steinle found himself where he never thought he would
be — testifying before the Senate Judiciary Committee to advocate for
commonsense changes to sanctuary city policies to prevent crimes “at the
hands of a person who never should have been on the streets of this
You might think no parent could experience anything
more painful, until you hear the testimony of Laura Wilkerson of Texas.
In 2010, her youngest son Josh, a senior in high school, was murdered by a 19-year-old undocumented
immigrant. Before strangling Wilkerson, Hermilo Moralez beat her son so
brutally that his head split in four places. According to the Houston
Chronicle, Moralez was a citizen of Belize who had been charged with
misdemeanor harassment earlier that year. A jury found Moralez guilty in 2013. (And, sadly, her story is not unique. Illegal aliens murdering Americans is commonplace now, thanks to fucking assholes like San Francisco's Bolshevik Board).
Sen. Chuck Grassley of Iowa, a Republican, is working
on legislation to block some federal funding to sanctuary cities that,
like San Francisco, do not comply with federal immigration detainers.
His bill also would set a minimum sentence of five years for illegal
re-entry. Like Sen. Dianne Feinstein, who has urged San Francisco to
cooperate with Immigration and Customs Enforcement, Grassley has a
handle on the destructive consequences of sanctuary policies.
Would Grassley’s bill stop another senseless murder? It won’t stop
them all. And yet: If Sheriff Ross Mirkarimi had handed Lopez-Sanchez
over to ICE, the feds would have deported him and he would not have been
in San Francisco on July 1 (not like he cares). To go by his rap sheet, however,
Lopez-Sanchez would have been back in the U.S. in short order: He
wouldn’t stay in Mexico and he couldn’t stay out of jail. In 1998,
Lopez-Sanchez was sentenced to 63 months for illegal re-entry. Within
months of his deportation, he had crossed the border. Next: 71 months
for illegal re-entry. Three months after his release, he was caught
again. Next: 66 months, then a trip to San Francisco, where he was
released. Thank you, City Hall. (And thank you President Obama, and Bush, and Clinton, and Bush Sr. for not securing the border in the first place!)
First the pro-undocumented lobby erased any
distinction between legal and undocumented immigrants (and are now trying to erase any distinction between violent and non-violent criminals, like we should allow ANY foreign criminals into the US) — with the
argument that most people here illegally are otherwise law-abiding
residents. OK. Does City Hall think it’s doing these folks a favor by
blocking the deportation of habitual criminals who can slip into their
neighborhoods and disappear? (So it's a numbers game, basically... I mean, what's a dead white woman to these racist pricks? A bonus, basically. And I will go into this in much more detail in a later post, but SF's Sanctuary City Policy was designed from the very beginning to shield violent criminals - specifically gang members - thanks to so-called "immigrant's rights groups" who were basically to MS-13 and the Nortenos what Sinn Fein is to the IRA).
Wilkerson told the Judiciary Committee, “Sanctuary
city policies scream to the criminal element of illegals in this
country: ‘Come to our town USA, we’ll protect you from our terrible
policemen. We’ll protect you from these tough American laws.’”
Franciscans like to think that they are sophisticated. Sure, they are so
smart they can tell the world: Immigrant felons, here is your
Meanwhile, that septic tank of Bay Area journalism - the SF Examiner - has printed some truly unbelievable editorials apologizing for SF's murderous Sanctuary City Policy and even doubling down on it, but more on that fucking bullshit later.
