Liberalism isn’t just costing us our standard of living and our self-respect. It’s costing some of us our lives. For example, last week two reconquistadors allowed to remain here by sanctuary policies were found guilty of murder in California:
In San Francisco a jury found Edwin Ramos, a renowned gang banger, guilty of three first-degree murder counts for the 2008 killings of a 48-year-old man and his two sons. Ramos had a lengthy criminal record when he murdered the family, but San Francisco sanctuary laws shielded him from deportation.
Judicial Watch obtained public records that show police knew Ramos was an active member of the notoriously violent MS-13 street gang and that he had numerous run ins with the law, including arrests for weapons and gang-related charges. Furthermore, police knew Ramos was in the U.S. illegally yet released him after every encounter.
Meanwhile, illegal aliens in San Francisco are given government identification cards, assured that they will not be reported to federal officials, and showered with welfare benefits.
A few hundred miles south in Los Angeles, another illegal immigrant gang banger (Pedro Espinoza) was also convicted of first-degree murder [last] week for gunning down a standout high school football player in 2008. …
Espinoza had just completed a jail sentence for a previous felony when he murdered the 17-year-old star running back, Jamiel Shaw, as he walked home. Like San Francisco Los Angeles has strict policies banning law enforcement officers from inquiring about suspects’ immigration status.
Our liberal rulers obviously do not have our best interests at heart, yet we tolerate them. The price we pay for this will keep going up.
