Sessions Makes HUUUUGE Announcement – This Is It, Folks!

Illegal Mexican immigrant Jose Ines Garcia Zarate had been recently been released from a San Franciso jail before he shot and killed Kate Steinle, a beautiful young lady of just 32 years of age.

Zarate had been deported five times, and had multiple drug convictions, yet, somehow, he was still in the U.S.A. One of the most frustrating aspects of the Steinle case was the fact that San Francisco Sheriff Ross Mirkarimi had released Zarate from jail despite a federal request that he remain in jail, pending his, now sixth, deportation.

President Trump, and countless others, are infuriated by this situation, and so Trump and the DOJ are pushing hard, once again, to change the laws that protect the so-called sanctuary cities that allow people like Zarate to stay in this country, break laws, and hurt or kill people.

As noted in a LATimes.com article on the case, U.S. Attorney Jeff Sessions said, “San Francisco’s decision to protect criminal aliens led to the preventable and heartbreaking death of Kate Steinle. 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.”

Sessions, as mentioned on Fox.com, also encouraged the United States to “get its head on straight” and stop protecting sanctuary cities which, he said, are working in direct opposition to the U.S. government, which is simply trying to enforce U.S. immigration law.

Sessions also emphasized that the Justice Department is now working hard to obtain the legal right to withhold federal grant money from sanctuary cities. Understandably, Sessions pointed out what many feel, that the whole concept of sanctuary cities is bizarre, saying, “It’s just amazing to me why any city would not want to rid itself of criminals who are also in the country illegally. Why would they want to maintain them in this country when they’re committing additional crimes against the peace and dignity of the city?”

Fox.com reported that Sessions urged Congress to work with the Trump administration to help protect Americans against illegals like Zarate by passing legislation such as “Kate’s Law,” which would increase penalties on convicted and deported illegals who illegally re-enter the United States.
