This past week brought news of yet another innocent American life taken at the hands of a criminal alien. In this case, one who had been deported on five separate occasions. The brutal murder of Kathryn Steinle can be laid directly at the feet of contemptible, hispandering politicians like Gavin Newsom, who have made San Francisco into a sanctuary for violent-in many cases, homicidal-offenders who surprisingly do not abide by this country’s immigration laws. The death of Steinle would be horrific enough were it not part of a consistent pattern of criminal behavior being ignored by government agencies more interested in placating certain ethno-political constituencies than protecting the lives of American citizens.
It’s a story that’s been repeated ad nauseam for years, and yet there is still no action to prevent future needless deaths. Just as Adrienne Shelly, the brilliant independent actress and filmmaker pictured above, was murdered by a man who should never have been in this country, so too will countless others die at the hands of illegal aliens because of our government’s criminal negligence. We need to remember these lives which have been stolen from us by that callous disregard, but we also need to ensure that these Americans will have not died in vain, and commit ourselves to action that will prevent innocent citizens from having their lives taken in the future.
