A few months ago, American citizen and California resident Kate Steinle was minding her own business at a San Francisco pier when illegal immigrant Francisco Sanchez, who had already been deported multiple times, shot her dead.
Today, her grieving family is filing claims against San Francisco Sheriff Ross Mirkarimi, Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and the U.S. Bureau of Land Management for allowing it to happen.
I don’t blame them one bit for taking legal action. In fact, I find their lawsuit entirely reasonable.
It is their government’s fault that their sister died. Federal and local authorities from President Obama on down have purposely and blatantly allowed illegals into this nation, leaving our borders wide open to the kind of widespread violence and lawlessness that should be foreign to this land.
Gang activity is enormous, the drug trade is thriving, forced prostitution is on the rise and terrorist organizations like ISIS have easy access to our citizens all because our government doesn’t care to be responsible with its power.
And because our government doesn’t care to be responsible with its power, the odds of the Steinle family making any headway against the institutions that aided and abetted Kate’s death are about as high as a fetus’ chance of coming out of an abortion clinic alive.
It could happen, but it’s going to take a miracle.
