A California newspaper says that sanctuary city policies are not to blame for the murder of San Francisco tourist Kate Steinle on July 1, 2015. The latest attempt to shift the blame follows claims by the attorney for the criminal illegal alien, Juan Francisco Lopez-Sanchez, a.k.a Jose Inez Garcia Zarate, that the gun is at fault.
“What doesn’t matter is that Garcia Zarate (Sanchez) is Mexican. Nor does it matter how he got across the border,” the Sacrament Bee editorial board writes. “It also doesn’t matter that San Francisco is a sanctuary city in what is now a sanctuary state. And it really doesn’t matter that some people insist building a wall along the border with Mexico would have prevented Garcia Zarate from illegally entering the United States six times.”
U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement acting-Director Thomas Homan responded to the assertion from the editorial board, telling Breitbart Texas, “The fact is that some crimes committed by illegal aliens are preventable. Non-cooperation policies, like those recently enshrined in SB 54, lead to tragedies that likely could have been prevented.”[contentcards url=”http://www.breitbart.com/texas/2017/10/23/dont-blame-sanctuary-cities-kate-steinles-death-says-california-paper/” target=”_blank”]
