Hutzpah: White House Attempts To Blame GOP For Murder Of Woman In San Francisco By Illegal Alien

If Democratic policies on illegal aliens are so great, why do they always have to shift blame

(Washington Times) The White House blamed congressional Republicans Monday for the death of a San Francisco woman allegedly shot by a repeat offender illegal immigrant, and for a spate of gun violence last weekend in President Obama’s hometown of Chicago.

Referring to the shooting death last week of Kathryn Steinle, allegedly shot by a Mexican man who has been deported five times, White House press secretary Josh Earnest said the U.S. would be safer if Republican lawmakers had approved comprehensive immigration reform backed by the president. (WT note: not alleged, he admitted it)

“The president has done everything within his power to make sure that we’re focusing our law enforcement resources on criminals and those who pose a threat to public safety,” Mr. Earnest said. “It’s because of the political efforts of Republicans that we have not been able to make the kind of investment that we would like to make in securing our border and keeping our communities safe.”

Josh forgot something

Immigration and Customs Enforcement, which had Lopez-Sanchez in its custody in March after his release from federal prison, turned him over to San Francisco deputies on a drug warrant and requested an immigration detainer, asking that the agency be notified before he was released.

But San Francisco is a “sanctuary” city that doesn’t honor such immigration detainer requests. The sheriff’s department released him.

Last time I checked, ICE is a federal agency run by the Executive Branch, meaning Mr. Obama, a Democrat and Josh Earnest’s boss, is the head. San Francisco is a city wholly run by Democrats. Speaking of Mayor Edwin M. Lee, who is totally happy and supportive of San Fran’s official sanctuary city policy

He also took a swipe at Republicans in Congress for blocking pro-amnesty comprehensive immigration reform bills.

“Even after repeated attempts by President Obama and Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi to reform our immigration laws, Republicans in Congress have blocked those efforts, unfortunately, leaving cities and local municipalities to act upon immigration issues that affect its residents,” Mr. Lee said.

San Fran’s choice, going back decades, has been to offer sanctuary for illegal aliens, in violation of federal law. Instead of coddling illegals, San Francisco and Mr. Obama should enforce the laws on the books. Finish the border fence, as required by law (let’s be clear, George W. Bush was a bit squishy on this subject, too). Deport illegals. Period. Giving lawful status to illegals wouldn’t stop this.

But, Democrats aren’t really interested in “if we could save just one life”, as they yammer when it comes to gun violence: they are interested in creating new Democratic Party voters, and to hell with US citizens.

    Except, of course, that the government had Señor Lopez-Sanchez in custody! He was free because the government let him go!

    Of course the Democrats want to deflect the blame, because they have blood on their hands.

    If the Congress did not change our immigration laws, it is because they prefer the current laws — which had also been passed by Congress — to the ones preferred by the President. That is Congress’ prerogative, and it appears, from the results of the 2014 elections, that the voters approve of what the Republicans have chosen.

    What confuses me.

    1. Democratic cities can choose not to enforce the law and get away with it, be supported by the president and the Main Stream Media shouts hallelujah.

    2. Arizona attempted to pass its own set of laws which were then struck down by the supreme court and told they had to enforce the laws on the books.

    Its one screwed up country we are living in and I want to personally thank Communists everywhere(Communist controlled democratic party along with their aider and abettors the MSM press.) It is your hard earned work that has assured my children and grandchildren that they will never know a prosperous, and secure America where freedoms ring and opportunities abound.

    thank you kindly….enjoy the burqa’s your great grandchildren will be forced to wear because of your actions today.

    Liam communists? really are there any left?
    THAT is the danger our country has to face? Communists?

    Teach the border fence has been completed pretty much wherever the most people were crossing.
    But those clever illegals !!! they use ladders or they dig underneath them
    Then once they ARE here they are protected by our laws and can not be immediately sent back because of all that “due process” and it costs more than 100$ per day to keep them in prison and we don’t have enough space
    Most of the fence is 10 feet high show me a 20 foot high fence and I will show you a 21 foot ladder.
    The TOTAL number of undocumented people in the USA has gone DOWN since Obama has been POTUS
    The average length of time an undocumented has been here is 11 years.
    when will YOU put up a big sign on your stores saying that you refuse to sell phones to illegals?

    So the people moved to other areas to cross? Who would have thought that would have happened?

    But those clever illegals !!! they use ladders or they dig underneath them

    And the Border Patrol is restricted from aggressively looking for those tunnels john.

    Then once they ARE here they are protected by our laws and can not be immediately sent back because of all that “due process” and it costs more than 100$ per day to keep them in prison and we don’t have enough space

    Does ICE and DHS know this? The people they capture at the border are immediately sent back. That is why your point on the number of illegals is irrelevant because the Obama administration changed the criteria for counting deportations.

    The TOTAL number of undocumented people in the USA has gone DOWN since Obama has been POTUS

    Thanks Obama for having a crappy economy!

    when will YOU put up a big sign on your stores saying that you refuse to sell phones to illegals?

    One of our resident leftists wants someone to discriminate against people.

    Why am I not surprised?

    Certainly there are communists left; it’s just that now they call themselves “progressives.” They still want to control every aspect of our lives, for our own good, of course, restricting people’s rights to freedom of speech and the press and religion, and, most certainly, to keep and bear arms. They tell us what we must buy, and what we can’t buy, and, to the left, freedom of choice means on exactly one subject.

    When you get people fined $135,000 for not violating their religious beliefs, and then ordered not to speak about their religious beliefs, you have a Communist society.

    One of the big problems that the GOP has is definitely that of creating new party voters. Most GOPers are too old to have kids.

    “One of the big problems that the GOP has is definitely that of creating new party voters. Most GOPers are too old to have kids.”

    Not really true but even so, most lefists are busy aborting their future voters which is why they are so enamored of open borders.

  10. Deserttrek says:

    nice to see the child abusers defending open borders and murdering citizens while quoting made up figures from the barryboy regime

  11. Jl says:

    “Most GOPers are too old to have kids” Most liberals are too stupid to have kids, but unfortunately that doesn’t stop them.

    Communism is rampant in the Democratic party. The Democratic party is NOT YOUR DADDIES PARTY.

    The party of JFK which consisted of Classical liberals…….or patriotic Americans who believed in freedom and liberty for all is gone.

    One of JFK’s most famous quotes:

    “Ask not what your country can do for YOU, but ask what YOU can do for your country.”

    Classical liberalism in one sentence.

    The Democratic party as we know it is dead…..replaced by communists who would destroy America from within on the false precept that they know what is best for ALL.

    and unfortunately they have gotten control of schools, colleges and the Main Stream Media and so their work goes unchecked.

    America is a goner…..its just a matter of time now.

  17. Stosh says:

    They are correct in a backhanded way. If the GOP hadn’t blocked pro-amnesty comprehensive immigration the illegals would be citizens. PRESTO – no illegal alien crime problem, they’re now just citizens.

    The logic is purely Demonkrat.
