    No they ought to go after the politicians that signed it into law. These assholes need to be accountable for their stupidity and corruption. Burn them down!

    Update

    Kate Steinle's family filed a wrongful death lawsuit. They have a tough legal battle ahead of them, it's hard to win a case against government agencies.




    The federal court suit by Kathryn Steinle’s parents said Juan Francisco Lopez-Sanchez, a Mexican immigrant who has admitted firing the fatal shot, was freed from jail weeks before Steinle was killed because of blunders by both Mirkarimi and U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

    The suit also faulted ICE, the federal immigration agency, saying its officials were aware of Mirkarimi’s policy and knew he would refuse to honor immigration holds.

    The family also said the U.S. Bureau of Land Management had failed to train its employees to keep their weapons secure.

    “The Steinle family hopes that their actions today will serve to highlight the lax enforcement of gun safety regulations among the law enforcement agencies involved and bureaucratic confusion so that this will not happen to others,” said Frank Pitre, the family’s lawyer.

    As a matter of fact, Iowa senator Chuck Grassley is already on it.



    New legislation targets 'sanctuary cities' that circumvent immigration laws

    Iowa senator Chuck Grassley, the Republican who chairs the Senate judiciary committee, introduced legislation on Tuesday that would crack down on jurisdictions that provide safe harbor for undocumented migrants by withholding some federal funding for state and local entities if they decline to cooperate with the government on the holding or transferring of undocumented migrants with criminal records.

    Among the funding Grassley’s bill threatens to withhold are grants related to law enforcement that are distributed by the Department of Homeland Security and the Department of Justice. His legislation would also impose a mandatory minimum five-year prison sentence, as well as a possible fine, for those who enter the US after being deported.

    “Enforcing the immigration laws of the United States is not a voluntary or trivial matter. Real lives are at stake. Things cannot continue this way,” Grassley said while announcing the bill during a judiciary committee hearing, where several relatives whose family members were killed by undocumented migrants provided testimony.

    “No more people should die at the hands of those who break our laws just by being here. No more families should have to go through what our witnesses have experienced,” he added, while noting that those addressing the panel lost loved ones “as a direct result of the [Obama] administration’s failure to deport criminals or its tolerance of sanctuary policies”.

    Kathryn Steinle's father is not going to let his daughter's death be in vain. He's taking his battle to DC.



    Father of slain S.F. woman Kathryn Steinle supports anti-"sanctuary city" laws

    The father of Kathryn Steinle, the San Francisco woman who was shot to death on a San Francisco pier by an immigrant in the country illegally, urged lawmakers to consider changes to the country's immigration laws in order to more effectively get criminal felons off the streets.

    "Our family realized the complexity of immigration laws, however we feel strongly that some legislation should be discussed, enacted or changed to take these undocumented immigrants felons off our streets for good," Jim Steinle said at a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing Tuesday. "We'd be proud to see Kate's name associated with some of this new legislation. We feel if Kate's law saves one daughter, one son, a mother, a father, Kate's death won't be in vain."

    If the goal is to educate people on the dangers of allowing sanctuary cities to continue defying federal laws, this is the time to do it. It is the perfect opportunity for conservatives to jump on and ride it for all they can. I'll bet the Democrats wouldn't have hesitated. They understand how to work it.

    They don't care, you are speaking about libtards that love all vermin.

    This topic have been discussed by virtually everyone in the bay area. I have yet to come across anyone who supports the sanctuary law. How did it ever get passed? Did the people of SF vote for it?
    They slip those bills into the ballots with shallow wording. I always vote NO to them.

    Hey hey hey, now. I'm not bitching - if San Fran wan't to be a house of crazy, that's their business. I'm simply lamenting that such a beautiful city has politics that are to liberals as liberals are to conservatives.

    I flew there two months ago for a weekend. Still a beautiful city.

    Or the right level of cut-out.

    The thing that will be interesting is the rank of the issues...
