Shameful: Sanctuary City Protections Remain in San Francisco Even After Kate Steinle Death

In a slap in the face to the family of Kate Steinle, a young woman who last year was killed by an illegal immigrant, San Francisco has decided to retain its status as a sanctuary city

The Board of Supervisors unanimously approved legislation that upholds the city's policy on limiting law enforcement from providing assistance to federal immigration authorities aiming to apprehend or deport individuals. 

The board's decision allows illegal immigrants like Juan Francisco Lopez-Sanchez to escape proper punishment. Sanchez, who had been deported five times before, shot and killed Steinle last summer while she was walking along the San Francisco pier. Sheriff Ross Mirkarimi released Lopez-Sanchez even though federal authorities wanted the city to keep him behind bars. The tragedy spawned Kate's Law, legislation that would demand a minimum 5-year prison sentence for any illegal immigrant here in the U.S. who been previously been deported. 

Yet, San Francisco officials have apparently decided political correctness is more important than its citizens' safety. God forbid their disastrous decision results in more Kate Steinles.

A second vote on the sanctuary city ordinance is scheduled for next Tuesday.
