July 1, 2015 a young woman in San Francisco got up to start her day, her day that would be her last day. That young woman was 32 year old Kate Steinle. Kate Steinle was a young beautiful woman with a whole life ahead of her. That day Kate Steinle and her father took a walk along Pier 14, in the Embarcadero district in San Francisco, California. Tragically that walk along Pier 14 would be the last walk for Kate Steinle and the last time Jim Steinle would ever spend with his daughter. Kate Steinle was shot and killed by an illegal immigrant. Not only was the illegal immigrant here illegally, but he had been deported five times. The last words of daughter Kate Steinle that Mr. Jim Steinle will have ingrained in his memory forever are, "help me Dad".
The death of Kate Steinle never ever should have occurred had this country had stricter laws against illegal immigrants. Unfortunately unbeknownst to me and many other Americans, the United States has what is termed, "Sanctuary Cities". Until the tragic death of Kate Steinle I and many others had never heard of the phrase, "Sanctuary City".Frankly I never knew we had such a thing. I knew we had illegal aliens living among us, but I had no idea that Illegals were actually allowed to live here legally, while still "illegal". At present the United States has some 200 Sanctuary cities. Thanks to GOP candidate Donald Trump I learned that my very state, Florida had five sanctuary cities when current Republican candidate Jeb Bush was Governor. Just last week Jeb Bush called for the elimination of sanctuary cities and the House Of Representatives voted to punish sanctuary cities. The bill passed and will withhold certain federal law enforcement grants to cities that have policies to aid illegal immigrants with protection from deportation.
Sanctuary Cities, a term referring to to cities in the United States and Canada that have policies that are designed to aid and shelter illegal immigrants. Well isn't it wonderful that the United States has opened it's doors to illegals? Our government knows nothing about these illegals, such as their background, religion and such, but we open our doors for them and give them a chance to live a better life. In a perfect world these illegals would be upstanding good citizens, but we are in a less than a perfect world, and far less than perfect if one happens to live in a sanctuary city. GOP contender Donald Trump caused a media frenzy over the following statement, " They're not sending you ,they're sending people with lots of problems, they're bringing those problems. They're bringing drugs, they're bringing crime. They're rapists, and some, I assume are good people,but I speak to border guards and they're telling us what we're getting." While Trump may not have been "politically correct", so to speak, Trump was right.
Turns out, shocker, that the liberal based media has been covering up the true horrors of illegal immigrants for years. Just naming a mere few of the statistics what I found was disturbing to say the least. In Texas alone more than 2000 illegal immigrants were deported for committing sex crimes, and nearly a thousand sex crimes were committed against children. According to an FBI crime study in Los Angeles, Phoenix, and Albuquerque, 75 percent of the most wanted criminals were in fact illegal aliens. in California detention centers, one quarter of all inmates were Mexican nationals ,as were 40 percent in Arizona, and 49 percent in New Mexico Jails, and the facts go on. Over fifty three percent of all burglaries committed in Arizona, California, New Mexico, Nevada and Texas were committed by, you guessed it, illegal aliens. While burglaries and sex crimes are unusually high in sanctuary cities, it gets worse. Kate Steinle is far from being the lone victim due to an illegal immigrant. Bob Barry, 58 years old, a father, husband, friend and veteran, and sportscaster was killed by a recently deported illegal immigrant in a fatal car crash. The illegal alien was driving without a license, and was charged with manslaughter and drug possession. Michael Grubbs a 63 year old father, grandfather, veteran and friend was killed in a hit and run by an illegal immigrant from Bulgaria while walking his grandaughter in a stroller, and the list goes on. http://www.ojjpac.org/memorial.asp According to House Rules Committee Chairman, Pete Sessions, (R-Tx) undocumented immigrants released by the Obama administration are responsible for killing Americans EVERY DAY! https://youtu.be/Xjs6F722ToQ .
The statistics are endless on crimes committed by illegal immigrants, but the Obama administration would like Americans to be oblivious to those statistics as the illegal crime rate is only increasing due to the administration's open border policy. In 2012 the United States had some 11.7 million illegal immigrants. I don't know about the rest of America, but this has got to stop! First and foremost we must look out for, and protect Americans, all Americans. Trump's rather blunt statement may have offended some Mexicans, but the fact is ,legal Mexican immigrants don't want illegal Mexicans crossing the borders, any more than non Mexican Americans. They're victims of homicide, rape, battery, and burglary too!
" Sanctuary Cities", a term that I frankly find rather ironic. While America has become a sanctuary for illegal immigrants to be protected, America has become far from a sanctuary for legal law abiding citizens to be protected. San Francisco was Kate's city and it was anything but a sanctuary for a young woman that got up one July morning to take a walk with her father. Kate Steinle deserved more that day, but she was murdered by a man that should never have been allowed to stay in the country in the first place, and certainly not one that was able to come back six times! Obama and his administration have yet to comment, yet to call the family, and yet to make Kate Steinle's life matter. Her life did matter and thanks to Donald Trump and Bill O'Reilly America now knows Kate, her family as well as other victims and their families. Bill O'Reilly is pushing for The Kate Steinle Law, a law that would put a five year prison term on those illegals that return after being deported. While Kate Steinle and other victims of illegal aliens may not matter to our current President, thankfully their lives mattered to the likes of Donald Trump, Bill O"Reilly, and other lawmakers. Sanctuary cities should be abolished, as this country is our country, and I believe Americans need to take a stand with those in Washington that want to make this country not a sanctuary for illegals, but a sanctuary for legal American citizens.
