As the Obama administration continues to run for cover over the illegal immigration policies that led to the death of Kate Steinle at the hands of a 5-time deported illegal alien, Judge Jeanine Pirro focused the spotlight on its failures Saturday night.
In the “Opening Statement” of Fox News’ “Justice with Judge Jeanine,” Pirro said “the concept of sanctuary cities” is “wrong” and “fundamentally flawed.”
The judge lamented what she called “politically correct nonsense,” and asked “What is correct about allowing a career criminal, who should not have been here in the first place, to walk the streets?”
Pirro recounted the Steinle case and called her killer, Juan Francisco Lopez Sanchez, a “dirtbag career criminal” who was let go by San Francisco authorities in in April when federal immigrations officials asked for him to be handed over.
“Sanctuary cities are safe havens for criminal aliens, not their innocent victims,” Pirro said.
Pirro said Americans are generous but “don’t you dare ask us to create a zone of lawlessness and ignore the murder of innocent victims so some illegal criminal won’t have to go home.”
And she put the blame squarely on the Obama administration, mocking White House efforts to blame Republicans for the illegal alien problem. Obama is forcing his own sanctuary policy, she said.
“The Department of Homeland Security reportedly instructed that California criminal illegals be transferred to San Diego and Riverside counties. Why?” she asked. “Because they are sanctuary cities.”
Pirro pointed out that in 2010, the Obama administration said cities who did not enforce federal immigration laws would not be punished.
“Can you imagine what the president would do if sanctuary cities refused to enforce civil rights laws, integration laws?” she asked. “The federal response would be swift, certain and immediate.”
