The left has spent the better part of a week in full outrage mode at 2016 GOP candidate Donald Trump’s comments about Mexican illegal immigrants and crime.
Trump has been slammed by the media, had his pageants and products shunned by weak-kneed corporations, and has even seen nearly all his fellow candidates criticize him for his comments — without anyone bothering to say how they weren’t true.
Then this week came a horrific tragedy from San Francisco, as if to prove Donald Trump’s point in the most horribly graphic way.
On Wednesday, a beautiful young 31-year-old woman was walking arm-in-arm with her father at one of San Francisco’s most popular tourist destinations when she was shot dead by a man.
Who was the shooter? It was 45-year-old Francisco Sanchez — a man who, according to San Francisco ABC News affiliate, had previously been deported to Mexico five times, with a criminal record that included seven felony convictions.
The suspect in the Pier 14 shooting in San Francisco has signed a confession. Sources tell ABC7 News 45-year-old Francisco Sanchez admitted to firing the fatal shot that killed Kathryn Steinle.
Investigators say he is on probation from Texas and has committed offences in numerous states. They say Sanchez did not know his victim and they still don’t have a motive for the killing. Police divers have found a gun in the water near the pier. They are carrying out ballistics tests to see if it was used in the shooting.
As ABC7 reporter Vic Lee tweeted, it appears there were many failures by our government to prevent this tragedy:
So many questions remain. Why was Sanchez let back into the United States after being deported the first, second, third, fourth and fifth times?
Why wasn’t he deported AGAIN in March, rather than being turned over to San Francisco authorities?
And why was the detainer from ICE ignored — and Sanchez released onto the streets of San Francisco to kill an innocent young woman? Is it because San Francisco is a sanctuary city?
NBC Bay Area reports that this appears to have been the case:
Gatpandan added that San Francisco is a “sanctuary city, so we do not hand over people to ICE.” She also said that the police are “not responsible” for Sanchez once he is booked into county jail, “meaning we do not have control over his release.”
Horrible. Treasonous. Putting Americans in the crosshairs of killers, in violation of law and for the most nakedly political reasons.
Yes, not all Mexican illegal immigrants are murderers or rapists. But none of them should even be here. They are, by definition, illegal. And the Federal and San Francisco officials who let this scumbag on the streets the blood of beautiful Kathryn Steinle on their hands tonight.
And this was precisely what Donald Trump was trying to tell America — a truth so simple and devastating, that the entire media complex, and many weak corporate stooges, are determined to destroy him to silence it.
Thankfully, so far, he seems to have no absolutely intention of giving in.
