The Murder of America’s Sons and Daughters


Jose Ines Garcia Zarate, even after confessing to the murder of Kate Steinle, was found not guilty on November 30, 2017. If the Left is looking for an indictment of wrong doing, they need to look in the mirror, illegal immigration, sanctuary cities and Left-Wing unjust judiciaries.

 

Justin Smith writes with the obvious sense of injustice resulting to Zarate’s verdict. When there is no justice, what is an end result? Vigilantism?

The Murder of America’s Sons and Daughters

 

By Justin O. Smith

A San Francisco jury engaged in a gross, outrageous miscarriage and travesty of justice and denied Kate Steinle and her family justice, on November 30th, when they delivered a “not guilty” verdict to her murderer, Garcia Zarate, an illegal alien from Mexico. The integrity of the law was destroyed by this jury nullification, which abandoned facts, reason and the truth, and these jurors sent a clear message to America that a criminal illegal alien’s life was more important than Kate Steinle’s life and those of America’s own sons and daughters.

 

Partly to blame, the Court itself exhibited just how broken our system really is. The five previous deportations of Zarate and his seven previous felonies were left out of the case, even though Ms. Steinle’s murder and Zarate’s illegal alien status had sparked a national debate on the country’s illegal alien problem.

 

However, on the barest facts of the case, the jury should have easily been able to arrive to a “guilty” verdict on involuntary manslaughter, at the very least, unless they held the typical liberal anti-“white privilege”, pro-sanctuary city Democratic Party line of most of the area’s populace. This jury was a cross-section of an area that is thirty-percent foreign born and seemingly 100 percent ignorant of U.S. law, or simply predisposed to dismiss America’s age old shared principles and common national sentiment.

 

Any reasonable person, who has a cogent thought process, would have immediately seen through Zarate’s lies and continuously changing story. If he’d been shooting at a sea lion, as asserted, with the gun he supposedly “found”, the bullet would have been travelling away from Ms. Steinle and the crowded section of Pier 14. If he’d simply stepped on the gun, a weapon the quality of the Sig Sauer P239 would not have discharged on its own, as asserted, nor would it have fired without the trigger being purposely pulled by him, since the Sig would have had anywhere between 4.4 and 10 pounds of trigger pull, depending on its original owner’s preference.

 

A check of the firearm by the Bureau of Land Management in April 2015, three months before the shooting, found it was in perfect working order, which was noted by Assistant District Attorney Diana Garcia. Explaining further, the DA stated: “It’s not the kind of gun that’s going to go off by accident. He knew all along what he was doing.”

 

It’s undisputed that the gun was in Zarate’s possession, and witnesses saw him spinning on a bar chair pointing the gun down the pier. Zarate’s own statement is basically a confession, through his own claim the shooting was an accident, even though he fired towards multitudes of people on the pier that day, without any due caution and circumspection. At the very minimum, this fits the precise definition of “involuntary manslaughter”.

 

It’s also undisputed that Zarate should not have been in America in the first place. If the Sheriff’s Department had turned Zarate over to Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents, as required by federal law, instead of simply releasing him back to San Francisco’s streets, Kate Steinle would be alive today.

 

How could this jury not convict Garcia Zarate, especially with the understanding that Kate Steinle could have been one of their own daughters, and as they witnessed her family’s pain?

 

Jim Steinle said: “We’re just shocked — saddened and shocked … There’s no other way you can coin it. Justice was rendered, but it was not served.”

 

U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions was quick to say, “I urge the leaders of the nation’s communities to reflect on the outcome of this case and consider carefully the harm they are doing to their citizens by refusing to cooperate with federal law enforcement officers.”

 

One should note, FBI statistics show 67,642 murders in the U.S, from 2005 through 2008 and 115,717 from 2003 through 2009. The General Accounting Office attributes 25,064 of these murders to criminal illegal aliens, which means, by extrapolating the stats, that 3.5 percent of this population in America committed twenty-two percent to thirty-seven percent of all murders in the nation.

 

Ninety-five percent of approximately 1500 outstanding homicide warrants in Los Angeles are for illegal aliens. About 67 percent of LA’s 17,000 outstanding felony warrants are for illegal aliens, and 4.5 million pounds of cocaine worth $72 billion are smuggled across the southern border every year.

 

Kate Steinle was thirty-two years old at the time of her death, blonde and beautiful and already successful in her career. She was also an adventurer and had already traveled overseas to Barcelona, Dubai and South Africa. Just days before her death, Kate had written, “Whatever is good for your soul — do that.”

 

Kate, her father and a family friend were enjoying an outing and taking pictures of birds, boats and each other on Pier 14, in the Embarcadero district, on July 1st 2015, when Zarate’s bullet struck her back and pierced her aorta. As she lay dying in her father’s arms, she gasped her last words, “Dad, help me, help me.”

 

Kate’s vibrant life was taken far too soon, but Zarate gets to rise each day and continue his life to whatever miserable end finally finds him, after he completes a two to three year sentence on the felony weapons charge. He will be returned to Mexico upon release, and that’s not justice.

 

America must force our leaders to fully enforce existing immigration law aimed at halting illegal immigration. No longer should the nation bear any tax burden either for sanctuary cities, that ignore these laws. Detain and deport anyone entering America illegally, regardless of their criminal or innocent intentions, and imprison repeat offenders for enough years to send a message to others and deter them from entering illegally. Build the wall and secure our borders, because Kate Steinle and other Americans murdered by illegal aliens deserve no less.

 

And perhaps, America needs a victim veto set in U.S law, for instances of jury nullification and a defendant’s obvious guilt, so the victim’s family can say: “Judge, I can’t live with this miscarriage of justice. This man murdered my daughter. I cannot possibly let this go unanswered. Let the judge make the final ruling.”

 

As the father of two daughters, in the absence of a punishment that fit the crime, a sense of being avenged and then to witness the criminal go free, without paying any real price, my own outrage would be such, if I were in Jim Steinle’s position, that I would make it a point to kill Zarate upon his release, because a criminal, especially a killer, must face a day of reckoning and receive his due.

 

The death penalty, life or twenty-five years in prison without parole could never redress the harm Zarate’s actions brought to the Steinle Family, but to let him go without finding him guilty of involuntary manslaughter is an intolerable moral violation. If the principles of the U.S. Constitution applied equally to protect victims, as much as the accused, it would be cruel and unusual punishment to deny the victims any real semblance of justice, that accompanies the rightful punishment of those who have done them or their families harm. And, as in this case, justice denied is no justice.

Justin Smith rightfully excoriates Leftist activist Judges ignoring the U.S. Constitution by unconstitutionally thwarting President Trump putting a lid on illegal aliens and Muslim terrorists from entering the USA.

Against the National Will

America is made less safe through Leftist immigration policy, as evidenced over the last eight years. Illegal aliens rob, rape and murder millions of Americans each year, because Leftist activist judges have said these illegals have “a right” to simply appear in our country, and Leftist mayors of U.S. cities refuse to enforce sound and logical U.S. immigration law already in existence, creating “sanctuary cities”. Their combined anti-American actions are directly responsible for so much misery, loss and heartache for American citizens they have sworn an oath to protect, and they have placed our U.S. national sovereignty in jeopardy.

 

Too many Americans blindly accept the fallacies and outright lies from the Left, that illegal aliens have “a right” to self-immigrate and a “birthright” to U.S. citizenship for any of their children born in America. These are weapons that Leftist judges use in their rulings to undermine our U.S. Constitution and move closer to an open border policy intent on fundamentally transforming our culture and society and ending American traditions, based on equality under the law, that preserve freedom and liberty for all Americans.

 

Whenever anyone witnesses Leftist protests from Sacramento to Seattle and New York to Atlanta, or points in between, LARAZA [FrontPageMag, DTN & Human Events] and Red Communist flags, the Hammer and Sickle, are readily seen everywhere, along with the black flag of the Islamic State. These people — all of them — in one form or fashion seek the fall of America and the eradication of our current U.S. Constitution, and as such, they indicate that they are outside the jurisdiction of the U.S., that their allegiances lie elsewhere rather than with the United States of America.

 

The author of the 14th Amendment, Senator Jacob Howard, defined who fell within the jurisdiction of the United States: “Every person born within the limits of the United States, and subject to [the states’] jurisdiction, is by virtue of natural and national law, a citizen of the United States. This will not, of course, include persons born in the [U.S.] who are foreigners [and] aliens …”. Pointing to natural law indicates the republican basis for citizenship is consent of the country.

 

On May 30th, 1866, Senator Lyman Trumbull stated that the jurisdiction clause includes those “not owing allegiance to anybody else … It’s only those persons … that we think of making citizens; and there can be no objection to the proposition that such persons should be made citizens.

 

Read deeper in the Congressional Record of the day [NationalPublicLibrary.com & Justia.com (note 1268)], and one finds that most Congressmen intended “jurisdiction” to be viewed in the context of “in extent and quality as it applies to every citizen of the United States now” and “in every respect”. They also agreed that high crimes and treason could be used as grounds to revoke one’s citizenship.

 

Approximately 118 jurisdictions in the United States currently serve as sanctuaries for dangerous illegal aliens. Immigration and Customs Enforcement reported that 279 counties and cities refused to detain and deport illegal aliens last year, even though a high percentage of them were Unaccompanied Alien Children who were violent gang members of MS-13.

 

Recently, a 14 year old girl was raped and sodomized repeatedly by two Unaccompanied Alien “Children”, who pulled her into a bathroom at Rockville High School in Montgomery County, Maryland, a sanctuary area for illegal aliens. One of her attackers, Henry Sanchez, an 18 year old Guatemalan, has a pending deportation case against him; both he and 17 year old Jose Montano, from El Salvador, were charged with first degree rape.

 

Hesham Mohamed Hadayet came to America on a tourist visa and immediately applied for asylum due to persecution in Egypt. They were “persecuting” him, because he was a member of Gama’a Islamiyya, an Islamic terrorist group. But thanks to Barney Frank’s 1989 amendment to the Immigration and Naturalization Act, he couldn’t be blocked from coming to America.

 

In 2011, the Department of Homeland Security acknowledged they had lost track of millions of people overstaying their visas. Two years later, they lost track of 266 dangerous foreigners that posed “national security or public safety concerns”, according to the Director of Homeland Security.

 

Are these the type of people Americans really wish to give U.S. citizenship? Citizenship is a privilege, not a right as some Leftist judges assert.

 

In a statement on March 27th, 2017, Attorney General Jeff Sessions warned sanctuary cities across America to enforce U.S. immigration law and cooperate with federal authorities or lose federal funding. He made it clear that any failure to correct violations of 8 U.S.C. Section 1373 could result in the termination of all future Office of Justice grants. Sessions added that Kate Steinle’s murder in San Francisco two years ago, by an illegal alien, was a direct result of San Francisco’s policy of refusing to honor federal detainer warrants.

 

Denying anyone entry into the country, especially for security concerns, is the sovereign right of our nation. The rulings from U.S. District judges such as James Robart, Leonie Brinkema and Dolly Gee, [GOPTheDailyDose.com & AFA.net] as well as upcoming ACLU lawsuits aimed at Jeff Sessions announcement, that suggest otherwise have absolutely no basis in the Constitution or the U.S. legal code; an affirmative legal right for any foreigner to immigrate to America does not exist, but the legal system is being manipulated to create a default “right” to immigrate, damaging our sovereignty and infringing upon our right to self-government, in the name of open borders.

 

Detailed in government statistics, twenty-five people are killed each day in America by illegal aliens. What is the affirmative case for such an insane policy? How does it make America better?

 

The current federal court systems have taken the very same laws used by every other president, and they have made them seem anomalous, unConstitutional, even illegal, when President Trump attempts to use them. These courts are overreaching their powers and abrogating the Constitution, when they allow illegal aliens and Muslims, outside the bounds of accurate security assessments, to remain in the country against the national will.

 

Illegal immigration is not a victimless crime, but Commie Progressive Democrats seem to be more concerned with protecting the rights of illegal aliens from Central America and the Middle East more than they care to protect the person, rights and life of any U.S. citizen. They would rather protect the privileges of well-connected elitists and LARAZA, ACLU commies and Muslim Brotherhood [CAIR] terrorists. But what about the right of a teenage girl to be protected from being raped by illegal aliens — the rights of millions of Americans to be protected from being maimed and murdered by the Sons of Mohammed?

 

No American who loves his country can allow this total disregard for our Constitution to stand. The President and Congress must forcefully and definitively squash the Courts’ power over this issue and remove their inordinate power. Otherwise, America will become unrecognizable, a mere shadow of Her former glory.

On August 31 in a Phoenix Arizona speech, Donald Trump outlines his ten-point plan for immigration reform. Most Conservative outlets were very pleased with the speech. I have not checked the American Left’s (Dems and MSM) viewpoint on the speech yet. The reason for that is the spin of lies and warped criticism that typically flows from a Leftist’s mouth.

 

Even the Never Trumper Conservatives of the Nationally Review grudgingly praised the speech as sensible:

 

After two weeks spent waffling on immigration, and making noises on the subject largely indistinguishable from those of Jeb Bush and Marco Rubio, Donald Trump has settled on a hawkish position — and a practical one. Trump’s crowd-pleasing antics aside, in his immigration speech in Phoenix, Ariz., on Wednesday he laid out a sensible, realistic path forward on genuine immigration reform.

 

Trump’s rhetoric on immigration has frequently been reckless, and on occasion he has seemed to play to feelings of animosity. He would be well served to strike a soberer tone. But on the merits, Trump has put forward a responsible immigration agenda. READ ENTIRETY (A Tough but Sensible Immigration Policy; By The Editors; National Review; 9/1/16 7:30 PM)

 

The Trump plan for immigration reform is awesome! It focuses on security, the border and unvetted Muslim regugees.

 

Donald Trump’s speech in entirety can be read at DonaldTrump.com. I am excerpting the ten points followed by the entire speech (about 1:17 and some odd seconds) courtesy of ABC.

 

Number One: We will build a wall along the Southern Border.

 

On day one, we will begin working on an impenetrable physical wall on the southern border. We will use the best technology, including above-and below-ground sensors, towers, aerial surveillance and manpower to supplement the wall, find and dislocate tunnels, and keep out the criminal cartels, and Mexico will pay for the wall.

 

Number Two: End Catch-And-Release

 

Under my Administration, anyone who illegally crosses the border will be detained until they are removed out of our country.

 

Number Three: Zero tolerance for criminal aliens.

 

According to federal data, there are at least 2 million criminal aliens now inside the country. We will begin moving them out day one, in joint operations with local, state and federal law enforcement.

 

Beyond the 2 million, there are a vast number of additional criminal illegal immigrants who have fled or evaded justice. But their days on the run will soon be over. They go out, and they go out fast.

 

Moving forward, we will issue detainers for all illegal immigrants who are arrested for any crime whatsoever, and they will be placed into immediate removal proceedings. We will terminate the Obama Administration’s deadly non-enforcement policies that allow thousands of criminal aliens to freely roam our streets.

 

Since 2013 alone, the Obama Administration has allowed 300,000 criminal aliens to return back into U.S. communities – these are individuals encountered or identified by ICE but who were not detained or processed for deportation.

 

My plan also includes cooperating closely with local jurisdictions to remove criminal aliens.

 

We will restore the highly successful Secure Communities program. We will expand and revitalize the popular 287(g) partnerships, which will help to identify hundreds of thousands of deportable aliens in local jails. Both of these programs have been recklessly gutted by this Administration. This is yet one more area where we are headed in a totally opposite direction.

 

On my first day in office, I am also going to ask Congress to pass “Kate’s Law” – named for Kate Steinle – to ensure that criminal aliens convicted of illegal reentry face receive strong mandatory minimum sentences.

 

Another reform I am proposing is the passage of legislation named for Detective Michael Davis and Deputy Sheriff Danny Oliver, two law enforcement officers recently killed by a previously-deported illegal immigrant. The Davis-Oliver bill will enhance cooperation with state and local authorities to ensure that criminal immigrants and terrorists are swiftly identified and removed.

 

We are going to triple the number of ICE deportation officers. Within ICE, I am going to create a new special Deportation Task Force, focused on identifying and removing quickly the most dangerous criminal illegal immigrants in America who have evaded justice.

 

The local police know who every one of these criminals are. There’s no great mystery to it, they’ve put up with it for years. And now, finally, we will turn the tables and law enforcement will be allowed to clear up this dangerous and threatening mess.

 

We’re also going to hire 5,000 more Border Patrol agents, and put more of them on the border, instead of behind desks. We will expand the number of Border Patrol Stations.

 

I’ve had a chance to spend time with these incredible law enforcement officers, and I want to take a moment to thank them. The endorsement I’ve received from the Border Patrol officers means more to me than I can say.

 

Number Four: Block Funding For Sanctuary Cities

 

We will end the Sanctuary Cities that have resulted in so many needless deaths. Cities that refuse to cooperate with federal authorities will not receive taxpayer dollars, and we will work with Congress to pass legislation to protect those jurisdictions that do assist federal authorities.

 

Number Five: Cancel Unconstitutional Executive Orders & Enforce All Immigration Laws

 

We will immediately terminate President Obama’s two illegal executive amnesties, in which he defied federal law and the constitution to give amnesty to approximately 5 million illegal immigrants.

 

Hillary Clinton has pledged to keep both of these illegal amnesty programs – including the 2014 amnesty which has been blocked by the Supreme Court. Clinton has also pledged to add a third executive amnesty.

 

Clinton’s plan would trigger a Constitutional Crisis unlike almost anything we have ever seen before. In effect, she would be abolishing the lawmaking powers of Congress in order to write her own laws from the Oval Office.

 

In a Trump Administration, all immigration laws will be enforced. As with any law enforcement activity, we will set priorities. But, unlike this Administration, no one will be immune or exempt from enforcement – and ICE and Border Patrol officers will be allowed to do their jobs. Anyone who has entered the United States illegally is subject to deportation – that is what it means to have laws and to have a country.

 

Our enforcement priorities will include removing criminals, gang members, security threats, visa overstays, public charges – that is, those relying on public welfare or straining the safety net, along with millions of recent illegal arrivals and overstays who’ve come here under the current Administration.

 

Number Six: We Are Going To Suspend The Issuance Of Visas To Any Place Where Adequate Screening Cannot Occur

 

According to data provided to the Senate Subcommittee on Immigration and the National Interest, between 9/11 and the end of 2014, at least 380 foreign-born individuals were convicted in terror cases inside the United States. The number is likely higher, but the Administration refuses to provide this information to Congress.

 

As soon as I enter office, I am going to ask the Department of State, Homeland Security and the Department of Justice to begin a comprehensive review of these cases in order to develop a list of regions and countries from which immigration must be suspended until proven and effective vetting mechanisms can be put into place.

 

Countries from which immigration will be suspended would include places like Syria and Libya.

 

For the price of resettling 1 refugee in the United States, 12 could be resettled in a safe zone in their home region.

 

Another reform involves new screening tests for all applicants that include an ideological certification to make sure that those we are admitting to our country share our values and love our people.

 

For instance, in the last five years, we’ve admitted nearly 100,000 immigrants from Iraq and Afghanistan – in these two countries, according to Pew research, a majority of residents say that the barbaric practice of honor killings against women are often or sometimes justified.

 

Applicants will be asked for their views about honor killings, about respect for women and gays and minorities, attitudes on Radical Islam, and many other topics as part of the vetting procedure.

 

Number Seven: We will ensure that other countries take their people back when we order them deported

 

There are at least 23 countries that refuse to take their people back after they have been ordered to leave the United States, including large numbers of violent criminals. Due to a Supreme Court decision, if these violent offenders cannot be sent home, our law enforcement officers have to release them into U.S. communities. There are often terrible consequences, such as Casey Chadwick’s tragic death in Connecticut just last year. Yet, despite the existence of a law that commands the Secretary of State to stop issuing visas to these countries, Secretary Hillary Clinton ignored this law and refused to use this powerful tool to bring nations into compliance.

 

The result of her misconduct was the release of thousands of dangerous criminal aliens who should have been sent home.

 

According to a report from the Boston Globe, from the year 2008 through 2014, nearly 13,000 criminal aliens were released back into U.S. communities because their home countries would not take them back. Many of these 13,000 releases occurred on Hillary Clinton’s watch – she had the power and the duty to stop it cold and she didn’t do it.

 

Those released include individuals convicted of killings, sexual assault and some of the most heinous crimes imaginable, who went on to reoffend at a very high rate.

 

Number Eight: We will finally complete the biometric entry-exit visa tracking system.

 

For years, Congress has required a biometric entry-exit visa tracking system, but it has never been completed.

 

In my Administration, we will ensure that this system is in place at all land, air, and sea ports. Approximately half of new illegal immigrants came on temporary visas and then never left. Beyond violating our laws, visa overstays pose a substantial threat to national security. The 9/11 Commission said that this tracking system should be a high priority and “would have assisted law enforcement and intelligence officials in August and September 2001 in conducting a search for two of the 9/11 hijackers that were in the U.S. on expired visas.”

 

Last year alone, nearly a half a million individuals overstayed their temporary visas. Removing visa overstays will be a top priority of my Administration. If people around the world believe they can just come on a temporary visa and never leave – the Obama-Clinton policy – then we have a completely open border. We must send the message that visa expiration dates will be strongly enforced.

 

Number Nine: We will turn off the jobs and benefits magnet.

 

We will ensure that E-Verify is used to the fullest extent possible under existing law, and will work with Congress to strengthen and expand its use across the country.

 

Immigration law doesn’t exist just for the purpose of keeping out criminals. It exists to protect all aspects of American life – the worksite, the welfare office, the education system and much else. That is why immigration limits are established in the first place. If we only enforce the laws against crime, then we have an open border to the entire world.

 

I will enforce all of our immigration laws.

 

The same goes for government benefits. The Center for Immigration Studies estimates that 62 percent of households headed by illegal immigrants used some form of cash or non-cash welfare programs, like food stamps or housing assistance. This directly violates the federal public charge law designed to protect the U.S. treasury.

 

Those who abuse our welfare system will be priorities for removal.

 

Number 10: We will reform legal immigration to serve the best interests of America and its workers

 

We’ve admitted 59 million immigrants to the United States between 1965 and 2015.

 

Many of these arrivals have greatly enriched our country. But we now have an obligation to them, and to their children, to control future immigration – as we have following previous immigration waves – to ensure assimilation, integration and upward mobility.

 

Within just a few years immigration as a share of national population is set to break all historical records.

 

The time has come for a new immigration commission to develop a new set of reforms to our legal immigration system in order to achieve the following goals:

 

  • To keep immigration levels, measured by population share, within historical norms

 

  • To select immigrants based on their likelihood of success in U.S. society, and their ability to be financially self-sufficient. We need a system that serves our needs – remember, it’s America First.

 

  • To choose immigrants based on merit, skill and proficiency

 

  • And to establish new immigration controls to boost wages and to ensure that open jobs are offered to American workers first.

 

We want people to come into our country, but they have to come in legally and properly-vetted, and in a manner that serves the national interest.

 

We’ve been living under outdated immigration rules from decades ago. To avoid this happening in the future, I believe we should sunset our visa laws so that Congress is forced to periodically revise and revisit them. We wouldn’t put our entire federal budget on autopilot for decades, so why should we do the same for immigration?

 

Let’s talk about the big picture

 

These ten steps, if rigorously followed and enforced, will accomplish more in a matter of months than our politicians have accomplished on this issue in the last fifty years.

 

Because I am not a politician, because I am not beholden to any special interest, I will get this done for you and your family.

 

We will accomplish all of READ ENTIRE SPEECH (Donald J. Trump: Address On Immigration; DonaldTrump.com; 8/31/16)

U.S. Dems and RINOs Shoot Down Kate’s Law


John R. Houk

© October 21, 2015

Senate Democrats and two idiot Republicans prevented the Kate’s Law legislation (HR 3011) from getting to the sixty votes needed to enforce defunding of cities, counties and other locations that refuse to enforce Federal law on criminal illegal aliens.

MAP: 340 sanctuary cities, counties and states

Here is the text of HR 3011 shot down by Democrats committed to illegal aliens even if they are committing crimes beyond illegal immigration:

114th CONGRESS

1st Session

H. R. 3011

To amend the Immigration and Nationality Act to increase the penalties applicable to aliens who unlawfully reenter the United States after being removed.

IN THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES

July 9, 2015

Mr. Salmon (for himself, Mr. Sessions, Mr. Weber of Texas, Mr. Zinke, Mr. Franks of Arizona, Mr. Bridenstine, Mr. Lamborn, Mr. Clawson of Florida, Mr. Zeldin, Mr. Gosar, Mr. McClintock, Mr. LaMalfa, Mr. Marino, Mr. Ross, Mr. Calvert, Mr. Jody B. Hice of Georgia, Mr. Brat, Mr. Marchant, Mr. Blum, Mr. Brooks of Alabama, Mr. Babin, Mr. Palmer, Mr. Jones, and Mr. Yoho) introduced the following bill; which was referred to the Committee on the Judiciary.

A BILL

To amend the Immigration and Nationality Act to increase the penalties applicable to aliens who unlawfully reenter the United States after being removed.

Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled,

SECTION 1. SHORT TITLE.

This Act may be cited as the “Establishing Mandatory Minimums for Illegal Reentry Act of 2015” or as “Kate’s Law”.

SEC. 2. INCREASED PENALTIES FOR REENTRY OF REMOVED ALIENS.

Section 276 of the Immigration and Nationality Act (8 U.S.C. 1326) is amended—

(1) in subsection (a), in the matter following paragraph (2) by striking “fined under title 18, United States Code, or imprisoned not more than 2 years, or both” and inserting “imprisoned not less than 5 years and not more than 6 years”; and

(2) in subsection (b)—

(A) in paragraph (1), by striking “fined under title 18, United States Code, imprisoned not more than 10 years, or both” and inserting “imprisoned not less than 5 and not more than 10 years, and may, in addition, be fined under title 18, United States Code”;

(B) in paragraph (2), by striking “fined under such title, imprisoned not more than 20 years, or both” and inserting “imprisoned not less than 5 and not more than 20 years and may, in addition, be fined under such title”; and

(C) in paragraph (4), by striking “fined under title 18, United States Code, imprisoned for not more than 10 years, or both” and inserting “imprisoned for not less than 5 and not more than 10 years and may, in addition, be fined under such title”. (H.R.3011 – Kate’s Law; Primary Sponsors – Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) and Rep. Matt Salmon (R-AZ); List of co-sponsors found HERE; Congress.gov; introduced 7/9/15)

This Senate vote should have been 100 for and zero against Kate’s Law. So YOU have to ask, “What in the devil is the reason ANY legislator would not support a law that protects AMERICAN CITIZENS from foreigners who illegally sneaked into the USA who commit crimes that if an American committed would be thrown in the slammer?

In the November 2016 election, why in the world would any registered AMERICAN voter vote for a Democrat that believes supporting the freedom of foreign criminals is more important than the safety and quality of life of an AMERICAN citizen or a LEGAL immigrant that entered our nation the correct way?

Senate Democrats blocked legislation that would punish “sanctuary cities” in a 54-45 vote Monday afternoon.

The bill, called the Stop Sanctuary Policies and Protect Americans Act, needed to overcome a 60-vote threshold. It would withhold certain federal funding from states or cities that refuse to comply with requests from federal immigration officials to turn over immigrants who are in the country illegally.

Kate’s Law Senate Yeas and Nays

Sen. David Vitter, R-La., introduced the legislation, which includes a provision known as Kate’s Law, named after 32-year-old Kate Steinle, who was fatally shot in San Francisco on July 1. The bill would impose a mandatory minimum jail sentence of five years for illegal immigrants who are convicted of re-entering the United States after being convicted of an aggravated felony or have three strikes for trying to enter the country illegally.

Today, U.S. Sen. David Vitter (R-La.) spoke on the Senate floor urging his colleagues to support his legislation, the Stop Sanctuary Policies and Protect Americans Act, which would withhold certain federal funding from sanctuary states or cities that fail to comply with Department of Homeland Security (DHS) issued detainer requests for illegal aliens. The bill would redirect these funds to states and localities that follow the law.

Vitter has been pushing to defund sanctuary cities since 2007, when he served as chairman of the Border Security Caucus.

Sanctuary policies vary from state to state, but they generally prevent local authorities from cooperating with federal immigration officers, allowing those localities to protect undocumented immigrants from deportation. There are currently 340 sanctuary cities in the United States, according to the Center for Immigration Studies.

The issue of sanctuary cities gained national attention when Steinle was killed this summer by Juan Francisco Lopez-Sanchez, an illegal immigrant who had seven prior felony convictions in the U.S. and had been deported to Mexico five separate times. He was released from a San Francisco jail in April under a city law barring the jail’s deputies from informing U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement of his release, despite the agency’s previous notification request.

Opponents of the Stop Sanctuary Policies and Protect Americans Act question the taxpayer cost of implementing mandatory minimums at a time when Congress is working to reform the criminal justice system. Some, including Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., even mocked the legislation, calling it the “Donald Trump Act.”

“This Donald Trump Act was designed to demonize immigrants and spread the myth that they are criminals and threats to the public,” Reid said on Monday.

During his bid for the 2016 GOP presidential nomination, Trump highlighted Steinle’s death as an example of why the country needs stricter immigration policies.

In July, the White House issued a veto threat on similar legislation that passed in the House, saying the measure “undermines current administration efforts to remove the most dangerous convicted criminals.”

Earlier this month, the Center for Immigration Studies, an organization that supports reduced immigration, identified the 340 cities, counties, and states that are considered sanctuary locations.

A government report commissioned for Congress by the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement found that sanctuary cities released more than 9,000 illegal immigrants whom federal authorities were seeking to deport between Jan. 1 and Sept. 30, 2014. As of last year, 69 percent of those were still at large in the United States.

Of those still at large, 1,377 had another criminal arrest that resulted in the detainer. Of the 6,460 criminal aliens who were still at large during the time period studied, 3,802 (58 percent) had prior felonies or violent misdemeanors.

Deadly Consequences

By Justin O. Smith

Kate Steinle’s murder was one terrible tragedy in a sea of thousands that are committed each year by criminal illegal aliens, who are too often gang members. And her death is especially sad and tragic, because it was so unnecessary and preventable, if only San Francisco had not been a sanctuary city, allowing illegals to come and go as they pleased; Kate’s murderer had already been deported five previous times.

In the days that followed, the Associated Press reported on several more murders by illegal aliens: On July 2nd, Traci Lemley and Jeremy Carrico were murdered in San Antonio, TX by the Mexican Mafia; Jose Valenzuela was charged with the murders of Michael Carrecia and his wife; on July 3rd, Juan Ramirez, an illegal alien in Washington state, was charged with the murder of an 18 year old young lady and her baby boy, setting them on fire; on July 4th, a Haitian “voodoo priest” was arrested for child rape in Florida.

And, while individual murders are a horror unto themselves, there also is an evident national security concern regarding Islamic illegal aliens, such as Mohamed Mamdouh, who plotted to detonate explosives in Manhattan synagogues in 2011. He subsequently pleaded guilty to three charges and received a five year prison sentence.

In 2009, Steve Camarota, from the Center for Immigration Studies, found that 22% of felons in Maricopa County, Arizona were illegal aliens. He also observed that 43 of the 76 fugitive murders most wanted by the FBI were foreign born at the time.

As Judicial Watch reported in 2014, 61,529 criminal cases were initiated by federal prosecutors, with 40% or 24,746 having been filed in court districts near the Mexican border. 12,123 were violent crimes.

Statistics from the state of California show that 95% of murder warrants in Los Angeles are for illegal aliens. 75% of the people on Los Angele’s most wanted list are illegal aliens. 25% of all California’s prisoners are Mexican nationals here illegally; and on a related note, 29% of inmates in federal prisons are illegal aliens. [Potential Source Confirmation HERE and HERE]

In 2010, New York state prisons held more than 4,000 inmates from ten Latin American and Caribbean nations and fewer than 150 from Western European nations.

These statistics should not surprise anyone, since Hispanics now outnumber whites in California and New Mexico. Hispanics are now the largest minority group in 21 other states, including New York, Massachusetts, Texas, Oregon and Wyoming.

A great deal of our current crisis centering on illegal aliens stems from a lack of political will to catch and deport the illegals in Progressive majority states, and while past administrations have been less than diligent in this regard, the Obama administration has laid out the welcome mat for illegal aliens. His lead has indicated to sanctuary cities like San Francisco that they can facilitate catch and release as policy and refuse to cooperate with federal immigration authorities.

The Center for Immigration Studies released a map, on July 8th, of more than 200 sanctuary cities that span the U.S. These areas maintain policies, regulations, executive orders and laws they use to rebuff federal immigration law enforcement authorities and federal law, that authorizes U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement to administratively deport illegal aliens without seeking criminal warrants or convictions from any court.

[CIS Sanctuary City Map]

Jessica Vaughn, CIS director of policy studies, said the number of sanctuary cities “might be closer to 300”, if one includes jurisdictions that provide welfare benefits, public housing, driver’s licenses or municipal ID cards.

The list of sanctuary cities includes Miami, FL _ Ann Arbor and Detroit, MI _ Denver, Fort Collins and Durango, CO _ Northampton, Springfield and Chelsea, MA _ and Phoenix, Mesa and Tucson, AZ. Virtually every major city in California, Minnesota, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, North Carolina, Oregon and Texas are included, along with, of all places, Jackson Hole, Wyoming and Washington, D.C.

It is surreal to now witness Hillary Clinton and Senators Barbara Boxer (CA) and Dianne Feinstein (CA) joining Donald Trump and other Republicans in condemnation of sanctuary policies. They have staunchly defended the right of cities to implement these catch-and-release policies in the past. And now, in a fit of hypocrisy, Sen. Feinstein recently stated, “The tragic death of MS Steinle could have been avoided if the Sheriff’s Department had notified ICE prior to the release of Sanchez, which would have allowed ICE to remove him from the country.”

MS Kathryn Steinle would still be alive today, if only the San Francisco Sheriff’s Department had done the right thing and called ICE. They didn’t need a warrant for pot or anything else in order to make that call and hold Sanchez until ICE could assume custody. All they needed was the fact that he crossed our border illegally. One phone call and Jim Steinle would be hugging a living, breathing young lady, rather than having to bury her on July 9th.

When questioned by an NBC Bay Area reporter, about San Francisco’s sanctuary policies and whether or not Mayor Ed Lee and San Francisco Sheriff Ross Mirkarimi bore some responsibility for her daughter Kate’s death, Liz Sullivan said, “It would have been so much better if he [Sanchez] were gone. Absolutely.”

Now, Mayor Ed Lee, who championed San Francisco’s sanctuary ordinance when it was introduced in 2013, is bowing to the pressure, stating on Wednesday (the 8th) that he would speak to federal officials about participating in a new Obama administration deportation program.

[Blog Editor: I hate doing this to the flow of Justin’s erudite flow of Obama’s horrific agenda with illegal aliens in the USA, but I did some reading in conjunction SF Mayor Ed Lee would revise SF’s sanctuary city policy to participate in the “new Obama administration deportation program.” The Mayor’s so-called new direction will provide little comfort to the victims of illegal alien committed crimes. Check out these excerpts to show my point:

A series of legal setbacks have halted the government’s intensive preparations to move forward with President Obama’s executive actions shielding millions of illegal immigrants from deportation, even as community organizations continue a rapid push to get ready for the programs, according to U.S. officials and immigrant advocacy groups.

Since a federal judge first blocked the new programs in February, the Department of Homeland Security has suspended plans to ….

Yet inside and outside the Beltway, community groups are mobilizing, educating immigrants and training volunteers to help them apply for relief, even though it remains unclear whether the program will ever begin. Most recently, a foundation headed by billionaire George Soros, undaunted by the court rulings, pledged at least $8 million to that effort.

Obama announced in November that up to 5 million illegal immigrants would be eligible to be shielded from deportation — including undocumented parents of U.S. citizens and legal permanent residents — as long as they met certain criteria. … (Obama administration stops work on immigrant program; By Jerry Markon; WaPo; 6/7/15)

And from Allen West:

Within the past month, we’ve brought to your attention the release of some 3,700 “Threat Level One” illegal immigrants. We also shared — on Fox News’ “On the Record” with Greta von Susteren — the case of some 121 released illegal immigrants who’ve committed murders. … Now we learn even more about the fundamental transformation of America — perhaps we should be less concerned about n-words and Confederate flags.

As reported by the Washington Times:

The administration has ordered agents to begin ignoring many of the illegal immigrants they encounter in prisons and jails, as President Obama begins to implement a lesser-known part of his deportation amnesty policy — though his program isn’t sitting well with either side of the immigration debate.

In a nod to so-called sanctuary cities, the president’s policy prohibits U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents from targeting most illegal immigrants for deportation, including most of those who come into contact with state and local police.

Agents can still troll jails and prisons, but are told to no longer go after illegal immigrants with offenses such as drug possession, theft or fraud if it involved stealing an identity to try to further their unlawful presences in the U.S., according to details of the policy released Tuesday by the House Judiciary Committee.

First of all, President Obama’s claim that criminal illegal immigrants would be priority for deportations appears to be false. Secondly, any city or county not complying with our constitutional republic’s rule of law shouldn’t receive federal funding. It’s unconscionable that we have these violations of our statutes — …

Even some illegal immigrants who’ve been charged with serious felonies but are released by local authorities won’t be picked up by immigration agents until they’re actually convicted, the committee said.

Here’s what happens under Obama’s Priority Enforcement Program (PEP):

Under the program, agents will ignore many of the illegal immigrants they encounter and will change the type of cooperation they request from state and local police. Agents generally won’t ask a department to hold an immigrant who otherwise would be released, but instead will ask to be notified so they can be on hand for the release and have the immigrant transferred.

In limited instances, agents will still issue detainer requests, but will have to assert probable cause so police have a reason to detain people beyond their normal release dates.

“ICE will only seek transfer of individuals in state and local custody in specific, limited circumstances. ICE will only issue a detainer where an individual fits within DHS’s narrower enforcement priorities and ICE has probable cause that the individual is removable,” the agency said in a brochure describing the program. “In many cases, rather than issue a detainer, ICE will instead request notification (at least 48 hours, if possible) of when an individual is to be released. ICE will use this time to determine whether there is probable cause to conclude that the individual is removable.” (How come nobody seems to care about Obama’s latest illegal immigration move? By Allen West; AllenBWest.com; 6/24/15)

Hmm… Mayor Ed Lee, I can’t see how participating in the “new Obama administration deportation program” would have prevented the murder of Kate Steinle by illegal alien Juan Francisco Lopez-Sanchez with a criminal past would have been prevented.]

 

Donald Trump is absolutely right when he states: “When Mexico sends its people, they’re not sending their best … They’re sending people that have lots of problems, and they’re bringing those problems to us. They’re bringing drugs. They’re bringing crime. They’re rapists. And some, I assume, are good people.”

Americans must demand an end to sanctuary cities and the catch-and-release policies that have such deadly consequences. Americans must demand an end to Obama’s open borders policies that come with too high a cost. Americans must demand the enforcement of existing immigration laws and the deportation of those caught here illegally. Americans must demand secure borders and a stop to the murders of our innocent citizens like Kate Steinle, whose family will love her and sorely miss her from this day on.
