President Obama's purposely driven---executive order---immigration policies, (by reining in ICE's deportation programs), have to answer why this young woman had to die. And, the "sanctuary city" of San Francisco are also culpable for this tragedy:
SAN FRANCISCO — A federal agency says a man suspected in the shooting death of a woman at a busy San Francisco tourist destination has seven felony convictions and has been deported five times, most recently in 2009.
Virginia Kice, spokeswoman for U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, said Friday that her agency turned Francisco Sanchez over to San Francisco police in March on an outstanding drug warrant.
Officers arrested Sanchez in the slaying of Kathryn Steinle about an hour after it occurred Thursday at Pier 14.
Police Sgt. Michael Andraychak said Thursday that Sanchez was on probation for an unspecified conviction.
Kice says ICE issued a detainer for Sanchez in March, requesting to be notified if he was released. Kice says the detainer was not honored.
Police officials did not immediately return a call seeking comment Friday.
ICE officials actually "briefly" had this man in custody last March after he finished his latest "felony re-entry" sentence, but turned him over to the San Francisco Sheriff's Department on an outstanding drug warrant. At the same time, ICE issued a detainer, "effectively asking that he be turned back over to ICE when San Francisco was finished with him", but ICE was never notified of his release from custody:
"But ICE was not notified. The incident is sure to renew criticism of San Francisco's sanctuary city policies.
"Here's a jurisdiction that's not even honoring our detainer for someone who clearly is an egregious offender," an ICE official told FoxNews.com.
ICE has since lodged another immigration detainer against the individual, though it's unclear whether San Francisco will cooperate.
An attorney for the San Francisco Sheriff's Department told the Associated Press it had no authority to honor the prior immigration hold when it released the suspect." Link
Yes, Mr. Obama, both YOU and the CITY OF SAN FRANCISCO now officially have blood on your hands. An innocent young woman is now dead because of the policies of your administration and this city's arrogance when it comes to ignoring immigration laws, (passed into law by Congress), to protect the people of the nation from such a tragic outcome. Shame on both of you!
