Folks can be as upset as they want with Donald Trump, but this is the TRUTH

Folks can be as upset as they want with Donald Trump and inflict all these cancellations on his private sector business enterprises, be it Univision, Macy’s, PGA, ESPN, NASCAR or whomever. The bottom line is that he somewhat inarticulately brought home a very pertinent point. It’s a point that, sadly, has come to the forefront of national news with the death of a young Kathryn Steinle at the hands of an illegal immigrant in San Francisco, who’d been deported some five times. We also learned about another criminal illegal alien — deported seven times — who was driving while high and almost killed a mother and her two young children.

Article I, Section 8, Clause 4 clearly states, “The Congress shall have Power To…establish an uniform Rule of Naturalization….”.

It’s not a very hard thing to understand: we need a Congress that upholds our laws and sovereignty. We don’t need an executive branch that seeks to usurp this enumerated power, granted to the legislative branch, because of political reasons. There’s no valid explanation as to why someone deported five times was able to kill an American citizen.

As reported by Fox News:

San Francisco prosecutors Monday charged an illegal immigrant — with a lengthy criminal record and deported five times — with the murder of a young woman at a popular city pier. 

Francisco Sanchez, a 45-year-old repeat drug offender released from jail April 15 after law enforcement officials declined to prosecute him, was expected to be arraigned Tuesday in the killing of Kathryn Steinle, 32. 

The charge came hours after federal immigration officials fired back at San Francisco for putting Sanchez back on the street, saying “this terrible tragedy” could have been prevented if they had been notified of the suspect’s release. 

Sanchez, a Mexican national, had been in the custody of the San Francisco Sheriff’s Department on a decade-old drug charge when he was released. 

In a detailed statement released Monday, Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) said that at the time it had turned over Sanchez to local law enforcement, it also had requested that they be kept apprised of any changes in his status — and they weren’t.

Ms. Steinle’s life didn’t need to be taken from her, had we true leaders in this country — not elected officials who fail to realize that the most important interest isn’t their own or special interest, but rather that of the American citizen. Of course, the finger pointing and typical blame game has begun:

“We’re not asking local law enforcement to do our job,” ICE spokeswoman Gillian Christensen said in the statement. “All we’re asking is that they notify us when a serious foreign national criminal offender is being released to the street so we can arrange to take custody.”

But there’s one thing we must confront — the issue of sanctuary states and cities. Amazingly enough, I now reside in a state and a city listed as sanctuary for illegal immigrants: Dallas, Texas. What I find unconscionable is that we have a Supreme Court that tells states they must conduct same-sex marriages, but yet allow states and cities to defy the rule of law, the U.S. Constitution. The Founding Fathers stated that the federal government had a responsibility, “To provide for calling forth the Militia to execute the Laws of the Union, suppress Insurrections and repel Invasions…”

The Founding Fathers called for the government to “repel invasions,” and yet, that’s exactly what’s being allowed to happen — an invasion of our country by immigrants crossing our border illegally. But what’s truly shameful is allowing safe havens for those who’ve disrespected our laws. Let me be clear, there’s little difference between allowing sanctuary for an enemy on the battlefield and sanctuary cities in our country. In either case, a cancer’s being allowed to fester right before our eyes, to the detriment of our citizens’ safety. There’s no excuse for this, other than the political appeasement of radical Hispanic groups, such as La Raza, LULAC and others. These groups care little about the security of American citizens and legal immigrants. This is about their political agenda — and we have politically-driven “leaders” all too will to comply, to further their own advancement.

It’s behind belief that law enforcement agencies are making excuses for the release of a known criminal. So what’s the solution? Sanctuary states and cities should receive no federal funding — none whatsoever. What type of nation have we become where we allow a safe zone for illegal immigrants? The local elected officials must be held responsible. Amazingly enough, the issue of illegal immigration has come to the forefront, and any politician supporting sanctuaries for illegals should not retain their position. This is not racist. This is not xenophobic. This is about the rule of law and safeguarding the American people. Since Ronald Reagan, not one single U.S. President has taken this issue head on. That must end.

Support Kate’s Law and end the practice of sanctuaries for illegal immigrants. And demand that criminal illegal immigrants be deported immediately — and if they’re caught reentering, they’re imprisoned. Yes, we may need guest workers, but they’re not entitled to citizenship and must be tracked.

This safe harboring of criminal illegal immigrants — which is directly responsible for the murder of American citizens — must cease.
