THIS WEEK’S NEWS
“Trump is Right: Illegal Alien Crime is Staggering in Scope and Savagery.”  The problem no one wants to talk about….article will leave you speechless. “….illegal aliens constitute 27% of the federal prison population.”

Trump was also denounced by the media for saying: ´Infectious disease is pouring across the border´ http://thehill.com/blogs/ballot-box/246982-trump-infectious-disease-is-pouring-across-the-border
But last year tens of thousands of Central Americans came into the United States through the Mexican border and contagious diseases—many considered to be eradicated in the U.S.—became a tremendous concern.
The influx prompted an official at the Center for Disease Control to describe Barack Obama as “the worst president we have ever had.”

The five times deported illegal immigrant who confessed to shooting Kathryn Steinle last Wednesday at Pier 14 in San Francisco said in a new interview that he came to San Francisco because he knew the sanctuary city would not hand him over to immigration officials.

Repopulating America:  At least 73,000 African immigrants call Minnesota home, according to the 2008-2012 American Community Survey, or 111,000 with children included. Advocates say they wouldn't be surprised if the real number was double that figure.
“Obama Moving to Force ‘Diversity’ on ‘Rich’ Neighborhoods with Increased ‘Affordable Housing’ Plan.” Democrats hope new federal “neighborhood engineering” will turn swing districts blue.
Republican mayor Rudy Giuliani cleaned up New York City, now lefties are in charge and the problems return:  “surging numbers of homeless people who publicly urinate, harass bystanders and demand free food as the city looks the other way.”
After seeing years of decline in violent crime, several major American cities experienced a dramatic surge in homicides during the first half of this year.

MTV will air a show later this month entitled “White People” which shows young white Americans crying on camera over their “white privilege” and publicly shaming them for “what they’ve done in America”.

New video out of Cincinnati shows a black mob viciously beating and choking a white man, but police have distanced themselves from an initial explanation that the incident was an “anti-white” attack.

Health insurance companies around the country are seeking rate increases of 20 percent to 40 percent or more, saying their new customers under the Affordable Care Act turned out to be sicker than expected. Federal officials say they are determined to see that the requests are scaled back. So how is it that the Affordable Care Act makes insurance more expensive?

THIS WEEK’S FEATURED COLUMN
The Progressive Policies that Murdered Kate Steinle
Mathew Vadum  7/6

Left-wingers in San Francisco should be hanging their heads in shame after their borderline seditious, destructive immigration policies allowed an illegal alien felon to murder a young woman randomly in broad daylight.
Nor did gun control laws prevent Juan Francisco Lopez-Sanchez, a 45-year-old illegal alien deported five times to Mexico, from allegedly firing one bullet into the upper body of medical device sales representative Kate Steinle on busy Pier 14 last Wednesday, a popular tourist destination. Steinle was cut down in front of her father and mother and died later in hospital.

No motive has been established for the shooting but Lopez-Sanchez is a five-time felon. An hour after the shooting, he was picked up by police roughly a mile away. Although this violent thug pulled the trigger, progressives, through the laws they have enacted, put this man on the streets which allowed him to murder. Federal authorities had Lopez-Sanchez in custody in March after he was set free from a federal prison. They transferred him to San Francisco authorities because he was wanted by them on drug-related charges. The feds filed what's called an "immigration detainer" requesting that the local authorities notify them before releasing the man.

But San Francisco, home of the most militant leftists in America, refused the request because local policy forbids it. The prisoner in effect got a "get out of jail free card" from the left-wing open-borders movement which argues that keeping illegals in jail violates their constitutional rights.

This is how it works. Being wanted for violating immigration laws isn't enough, in the eyes of progressives, so after they have served their local jail time, illegals go straight from their holding cells to the streets where they are free to murder, rape, and rob the citizens of this country. Complain about this policy and risk being smeared as a racist.

San Francisco isn't the only so-called sanctuary city where liberal-progressive compassion triumphs over federal immigration law and common sense. The list of sanctuary cities is long and growing longer. A list compiled by an activist shows there are at least 30 in California alone including Oakland, San Bernardino, San Francisco, Los Angeles, and San Diego. Other major sanctuary cities across the country are Albuquerque, Baltimore, Chicago, Dallas, Denver, Detroit, Houston, Miami, Minneapolis, New Orleans, New York, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Providence, Salt Lake City, Seattle, and Washington D.C. All these cities serve as magnets for illegals, drawing them from far and wide. They know that in these cities they have to really make an effort to get in trouble for immigration law violations….

Detainers are valid for up to two days and exhort jailers to keep in custody illegal immigrants who are otherwise scheduled for release, so ICE can claim them and process them for deportation…Local jailers "used to think of immigration detainers as mandatory, but several key court decisions have made clear to local law enforcement that the detainers are mere requests by ICE." Local governments have been under pressure from left-wing open-borders groups such as National Council of La Raza and National Day Laborers Organizing Network (NDLON) to do everything in their power to not take illegals into custody.

A growing number of local jurisdictions, including President Obama's home turf of Cook County, Illinois, have enacted ordinances preventing their law enforcement officials from honoring detainers. The consequences of treating detainers as mere suggestions have been deadly as vicious criminals who might otherwise face deportation are dumped back into communities to commit more crimes. A left-wing think tank founded by John Podesta, now chairman of Hillary Clinton's 2016 presidential campaign, even produced model legislation to assist jurisdictions in frustrating federal immigration detainers.

In October 2013 California Gov. Jerry Brown (D) signed California's iteration of the TRUST Act into law. The state statute "creates a statewide standard for how local agencies comply with the federal Secure Communities program, which requires law enforcement to check the immigration status of anyone who is arrested."

Translation: The state law raised the threshold for an immigration arrest so high that hardly any illegals can be arrested in California for immigration law violations. Not surprisingly, far fewer illegals arrested by California police are being turned over to federal authorities since the TRUST Act came into force.

Kate Steinle, who in her final moments futilely begged her parents to help her, is merely a "bump in the road" as President Obama might put it. Steinle is dead because of the damage the Left has done in its crusade to dismantle what remains of U.S. immigration law. 

Whatever discourages illegals from entering the country is bad, and whatever encourages them to hop the fence is good in the eyes of the progressives who are destroying America. Sanctuary cities and the growing movement to frustrate federal immigration enforcement will get more innocent U.S. citizens like Kate Steinle killed.

FROM OTHER COLUMNS
"The danger to America is not Barack Obama, but a citizenry capable of entrusting a man like him with the Presidency. It will be far easier to limit and undo the follies of an Obama presidency than to restore the necessary common sense and good judgment to a depraved electorate willing to have such a man for their president. "

“….even if white people were to become angels tomorrow, it would do nothing for the problems plaguing a large segment of the black community.   Illegitimacy, family breakdown, crime and fraudulent education are devastating problems, but they are not civil rights problems. There is little or nothing that government or white people can do to solve these problems. The solution lies with black people.”
