I don’t know why I’m surprised that the White House is blaming the GOP for murderous San Francisco illegal alien who was turned loose on the streets to gun down innocent American citizen Katie Steinle.
White House spokesperson Josh Earnest says that Republicans failed to pass legislation put forth by Obama and the Democrats.
“The fact is that the president has done everything within his power to make sure that we are focusing our law enforcement resources on criminals and those who pose a threat to public safety and it’s because of the political efforts of Republicans that we have not been able to make the kind of investment that we’d like to make in securing our border and keeping our community safe”
Maybe he was living under a rock during Obama’s first term… you know, when Democrats controlled the House, the Senate, AND the White House. Did anyone put immigration reform forward then? Democrats were in TOTAL control. If it was that important, why didn’t they just run it through then? Hmmmm… good question.
As if that weren’t enough… SanFran Sheriff doubles-down on his departments actions (culpability) by defending their release of this 5-time deportee and repeat felon onto the streets. Too bad the SanFran citizenry aren’t holding their Sheriff accountable to uphold the Constitution. His backing the Sanctuary City policy is in direct violation of our Constitution. Shameful.
