Last week, an illegal alien who’d been kicked out of the country fives times murdered a woman named Kate Steinle. The murderer said he kept returning because he knew San Francisco protected foreigners who have no regard for U.S. law.
San Francisco’s sanctuary status isn’t theoretical or unofficial. Local lawmakers passed an ordinance back in 1989 that mandated officials to ignore federal law.
This is so bad that even Obama’s Immigration and Customs Enforcement is throwing the city under the bus.
Deneen Borelli, Outreach Director for FreedomWorks, appeared on Fox News, along with liberal and Fox contributor Jehmu Greene, to comment. Borelli said her heart goes out Steinle’s family and to families of victims who don’t make the headlines.
“Clearly, it’s the liberal progressive policies that are killing Americans.” The city should get rid of the sanctuary ordinance.
Greene agreed that the illegal alien shouldn’t have been on the streets, but she accused people of “politicizing” this murder “in such a way to vilify all undocumented Americans…”
Ms. Greene, illegal aliens are not Americans. If I illegally entered France or overstayed my visa, for example, then worked under the table (or not), would I be an “undocumented Frenchwoman?” No. I’d be an American lawbreaker on foreign soil.
Why would anyone defend lawbreaking and deflect from this murder?
The primary goal, Borelli said, is to protect American citizens. The deported murderer had a felony record, and four Democrats running for president support sanctuary cities.
