Following yersterday's stunning 'not guilty' verdict in the case against the illegal immigrant felon who admitted to shooting and killing Kate Steinle, social media erupted in outrage, AG Sessions issued a statement and President Trump tweeted his disapproval, followed up with this...
The Kate Steinle killer came back and back over the weakly protected Obama border, always committing crimes and being violent, and yet this info was not used in court. His exoneration is a complete travesty of justice. BUILD THE WALL!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) December 1, 2017
The jury was not told the killer of Kate was a 7 time felon. The Schumer/Pelosi Democrats are so weak on Crime that they will pay a big price in the 2018 and 2020 Elections.— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) December 1, 2017
However, this morning, The White House has stepped up the rhetoric with a biting statement:
Statement from the Press Secretary on the Kate Steinle Case
Yesterday's verdict in San Francisco underscores the danger to public safety when our Nation fails to enforce its laws. Kate Steinle was killed by an illegal immigrant and convicted felon who had been deported from the United States five times. He, and countless other criminal illegal immigrants like him, should never be allowed to threaten our citizens.
It's more important now than ever for Congress to secure our borders and provide the resources, including more ICE officers, needed to deport criminal illegal aliens and to finally stop sanctuary city policies that cause needless loss of innocent life.
Politicians who fail to address these needs share responsibility for preventable crimes committed against innocent Americans.
Had San Francisco enforced our Nation's immigration laws, the Steinle family would be celebrating this holiday with all of their loved ones.
Fascinatingly, we have yet to hear anyone defending this decision - apart from the defense attorney.
