Another Casualty of our Insane Immigration Policies:

SAN FRANCISCO –A funeral for Kathryn Steinle, the 32-year-old woman shot and killed on a pier in San Francisco, was held Thursday.

Her accused killer had been deported five times, which has ignited debate over so-called “sanctuary cities,” where undocumented immigrants are not turned over to federal authorities.

The repeat felon charged with Steinle’s murder, Juan Francisco Lopez Sanchez, has become a notorious symbol of San Francisco’s policy.

Steinle’s death has brought proposals both in California’s legislature and in Congress for laws that would force local governments to cooperate with federal immigration authorities. San Francisco’s sanctuary ordinance largely prohibits city personnel from helping enforce immigration laws.

Over the weekend the national news media reluctantly turned its attention to San Francisco, where an innocent young American woman was shot to death and died in her father’s arms at a popular San Francisco tourist destination by an illegal alien who had been previously deported five times. She joins the grim list of other Californians shot dead by released illegal immigrants, like 17 year old Jamiel Shaw, and Anthony Bologna and his two sons, Michael and Anthony.

The incompetence and willful ignorance of both the San Francisco sheriffs department and immigrations and customs “enforcement” arm of the Department of Homeland Security is an absolute disgrace. If you ever needed any further proof that they don’t care about you and will do anything to appease the radical illegal-immigrant rights crowd, including defending illegal alien violent felons, that this is it.

Look at this man’s record: he had already been deported five times, was recently released after a jail sentence, and turned over to ICE. The immigration agents then discovered a bench warrant for a marijuana charge from 1998, so they released Sanchez to the San Francisco police. They, in turn, summarily dismissed the charges and put him out on the street, where he murdered an American citizen with a weapon stolen from a federal agent.
