Family Of Kate Steinle, Murdered By An Illegal Alien, Files Lawsuit

You remember Kate Steinle. She was murdered by an illegal alien in San Francisco with the stolen gun of a federal agent. The illegal should have never been in the country. He was a 5 time deported absconder. And while Obama has plenty of time to place a phone call to people who come out as gay, he had no time to call Kate’s family

(Fox News) Relatives of the woman shot to death on a San Francisco pier last year filed a lawsuit Friday saying the illegal immigrant accused in the killing should have been in custody if not for a series of mistakes by city and federal workers.

The killing of Kate Steinle in July 2015 and the arrest of Juan Francisco Lopez-Sanchez put San Francisco’s leaders on the defensive as critics and outside politicians called for a change in the city’s sanctuary law. Despite national outrage, San Francisco’s Board of Supervisors on Tuesday upheld those protections for people in the country illegally.

The sheriff at the time of the killing, Ross Mirkarimi, is named in the lawsuit, along with ICE and the Bureau of Land Management. Mirkarimi previously defended the release of the suspect, a repeat drug offender and habitual border-crosser.

The illegal in question was convicted 7 times of felonies.

Lopez-Sanchez was in the country illegally after being released from a San Francisco jail despite a request from federal immigration authorities that local officials keep him in custody for possible deportation. Lopez-Sanchez was previously deported five times to his native Mexico.

What does it say about American politics when a city is allowed to ignore federal law on immigration, while allowing a convicted felon who has been deported numerous times to walk free, and no one seems to do anything about the cities? Good for Kate’s family. Too bad Obama isn’t named in the lawsuit for failing to uphold the laws. Hopefully, this lawsuit will create a precedent that puts sanctuary cities and certain law enforcement on notice that they will be liable for the criminal conduct of the illegals they let roam free.

  1. Conservative Beaner says:

    The family should also file suit against both the GOP and Democrat parties since it is their policies that allow these illegals to stay here in the first place.

  2. Jeffery says:

    The tragedy resulted from the SF Sheriff not following policy. The killer should have been handed over to ICE according to CA law, regardless of county sanctuary statutes.

    The tragedy resulted from a BLM agent not securing his weapon properly. Why wasn’t the pistol locked separately from the ammunition? Why was there no trigger lock on a not in service pistol?

    The tragedy resulted from a drug addled killer having no regard for human life.

    Several hundred Americans die each year from unintentional shootings. Nearly 1000 children under 15 are hospitalized each year from unintentional shootings, very few shot by “illegals”. In fact, most are shot with guns left lying around by conservatives, or being cleaned by conservatives, or being played with by conservatives.

    Why are 100 dead children less important than Kate Steinle to conservatives? Because “guns” and “illegals”, of course.

    Conservatives demand free and total access to firearms and demand deporting all “illegals”.

    More children are killed by pools than firearm accidents. Are libs going to agitate for common sense pool control to be consistent, or do they just hate the children that they failed to murder in the womb?

  4. Jeffery says:

    from the CDC:

    From 2005-2014, there were an average of 3,536 fatal unintentional drownings (non-boating related) annually in the United States — about ten deaths per day.

    •About one in five people who die from drowning are children 14 and younger.

    So about 700 children drown each year, and that is more than die from accidental shootings. What’s your point, that shootings of kids are acceptable? That pools should be safer? Personally, if I had small children in the home, I would have neither a swimming pool nor a firearm.

    And of course pools are regulated. Do you object to local requirements for fences and locked gates around backyard pools? Water disturbance monitors? Are you advocating more regulations to make them safer?

    The killing of Kate Steinle could have been stopped at any number of steps and that was my point. The right is using her killing to support anti-immigrant policies. Why does her killing incite the right but the accidental shooting deaths of a hundred children does not? Because her killer was here illegally. We get it.

    If the piece of shit that shot her didn’t have a gun he wouldn’t have shot her. And it’s unlikely he would have drowned her. Do you agree that the BLM agent should have been more careful with his weapon? Can you think of a way for him to have stored his pistol safely? What if he was required, while away from the vehicle, to keep the gun locked in a built-in box in the trunk, separate from the ammunition? Further, what if the gun also had an impenetrable trigger or other lock? Of course, you will point out that a determined POS can bypass these safeguards. But don’t they make it less likely that a casual thief will steal it? It’s not as if BLM agents are on the front lines of protecting the populace. Are these reasonable restrictions under the circumstance?

    Note too, that swimming pools are intended for swimming, not killing; cars are intended for transportation, not killing; guns are intended for killing.

    “Conservatives demand free and total access to fire arms and demand deporting all illegals.” We’re demanding free firearms? No. Actually, what should have been said, is “Conservatives are demanding that the government follow what’s in the Constitution, which is access to firearms, and that the federal government follow the law that’s on the books as far as immigration is concerned.” Not quite so drama queen-ish as J’s quote, but much more accurate.

  6. Zhytamyr says:

    Do the math genius. Are there ~250+ million pools competing with “made to kill” guns? Ooh, Venezuela has the gun laws that you approve of and your favorite economic system. Maybe someday we’ll be “smart” enough to be a communist hellhole like them?

  7. Jeffery says:

    Have we discussed our thoughts on firearms regulation before? If not, how would you know what “gun laws we approve of”?

    We don’t care for their economic system, so it’s hardly our favorite.

    Are you certain that Venezuela is a Communist country?
