Note to John Boehner and Mitch McConnell: This is what you get for teaming up with the White House to pass Obama trade — blamed for murder.
An illegal alien who was deported five times has been arrested and charged with murder of a young woman in San Francisco, and according to the White House, it’s all the GOP’s fault.
White House spokesmonkey Josh Earnest said at a press briefing: “The fact is that the president has done everything within his power to make sure that we are focusing our law enforcement resources on criminals and those who pose a threat to public safety, and it’s because of the political efforts of Republicans that we have not been able to make the kind of investment that we’d like to make in securing our border and keeping our community safe.”
While it may be true that the GOP is the reason that Congress didn’t approve the budget-busting, pork-laden Gang of Eight bill last year, it’s also true that many of the agents of the Border Patrol are under the impression they’ve been given orders from the top to back off of enforcement and focus on processing the waves of immigrants that have been assaulting the border for several years since President Obama essentially promised the amnesty that he has now granted by executive orders.
It’s also true that the Department of Homeland Security has overseen probably the largest flood of illegal immigrants ever and done next to nothing to stop it. It’s also true that the DHS has been distributing said illegals to processing stations in every state throughout the nation, then releasing them with nothing more than their word to appear at immigration hearings months later — hearing which more than 90 percent never show up for.
It’s also true that the liberal-led city of San Francisco years ago declared itself a “sanctuary city” for illegal immigrants hiding from the federal government. It’s also true that the liberal-run state of California a couple of years ago followed San Francisco’s lead and declared itself a “sanctuary state.”
Today, the far Left is taking cover, from the gold-domed San Francisco City Hall to the White House.
Ordinarily, the media and politicians would have ignored the broad-daylight killing of Kathryn Steinle, 32, in front of her parents by an illegal immigrant, but Donald Trump, presidential candidate, has made crime committed by illegal immigrants an issue.
The suspect charged, Juan Francisco Lopez-Sanchez, had been deported five times and was in jail on drug charges earlier this year. He should have been handed over to federal authorities, but there’s that pesky “sanctuary” business that prohibits state law enforcement from cooperating with the federal immigration agencies in most cases.
So, despite the “priority request” from federal authorities to hand over Sanchez, the state of California, where life is just hypoallergenic puppies and kitties, and all the illegal immigrants are swell people just looking to support their families, released Sanchez instead into the streets of San Francisco, where crime is booming.
The San Francisco mayor’s spokesmonkey sounded just as defensive as did Earnest. “A woman’s life was tragically taken away, and right now Mayor Lee is focused on understanding the circumstances and facts around this tragedy and this man’s release,” Christine Falvey said in the San Francisco Chronicle. “Mr. Trump’s opportunism and offensive anti-immigrant rhetoric have nothing to contribute to that effort.”
That “opportunism” and “offensive rhetoric”? That’s what a lot of people call “honesty.”
The truth is, the Left has blood on its hands because of the flood of criminals it has invited over the border and helped set up shop here at home. Trump’s just calling it like he sees it.
Certainly, the GOP has had a hand in all of this immigration mess, but as usual with things that tend to destroy America and kill her people, the Democrats and other liberals are way out front leading the charge.
Former California Assemblyman Tim Donnelly had a message for Gov. Jerry “Moonbeam” Brown and other Democrats responsible for giving illegals “sanctuary.”
“This killing is the result of your policy of coddling dangerous criminals,” he said, “and your rampant obsession with protecting criminal illegal aliens is now on display for all the public to see. Don’t look now, but the blood on your hands is dripping onto your Gucci loafers.”
