Kate Steinle’s Killer Sues for “Vindictive Prosecution”

Five-times-deported illegal alien Jose Garcia Zarate got off with time served after killing Kate Steinle in front of an audience in San Francisco. Now he faces federal charges for being a felon and illegal alien in possession of a firearm. His legal representation counterattacks by playing the illegal alien card:

[Garcia Zarate] is accusing the federal government of “vindictive prosecution and collusion” in its decision to pursue further charges against him. …

“The true federal interest in pursuing this prosecution is to punish and make an example out of Mr. Garcia-Zarate for his high-profile acquittal in state court,” the motion reads. “This prosecution seeks to demonstrate to any high-profile defendant, especially one that is an undocumented immigrant, that their successful exercise of due process rights will not be respected and will result in the heavy hammer of a federal prosecution.”

How dare they discriminate against an “undocumented” immigrant by expecting him to obey the law, as if he were a mere American citizen like Kate Steinle?

Discarding any semblance of seriousness, the suit alleges that the killer’s oppression is a consequence of collusion between the federal government and the State of California. California proclaims itself to be a “sanctuary state” that does not cooperate with the federal government on even basic matters regarding immigration enforcement. This stance on the part of local officials is why he was running around loose when he killed Kate Steinle, an ICE detainer request having been ignored.

Nonetheless, Garcia Zarate’s suit may succeed if it comes before a sufficiently liberal judge.

Kate Steinle’s Killer Sentenced to Time Served

Time served. That was the punishment San Francisco authorities saw fit to mete out to Jose Ines Garcia Zarate for shooting Kate Steinle to death in front of an audience:

The illegal immigrant and seven-time felon who was acquitted of murder and assault in the 2015 San Francisco fatal shooting of 32-year old Kate Steinle was sentenced to three years in prison on Friday.

Jose Ines Garcia Zarate, who has been in custody since shortly after the shooting, was credited for time served.

He will be on parole for 48 months…

Sociopaths who would like to murder someone just for the hell of it may be tempted to make tracks for San Francisco. But be forwarded you might have to be an illegal alien who kills a white woman to get off as easily as Garcia Zarate. Evidently, the point of this intolerable miscarriage of justice was to stick it good to regular Americans who believe in borders, law & order, and not being murdered by lowlifes.

At least this time Garcia Zarate will be held for the Feds. But he faces only weapons charges, not murder or even assault. The maximum he can get is 10 years. His public defender denounced the charges as “discriminatory.”

Oh, and federal officials say they want to deport him again. He had already been deported five times when he killed Kate Steinle.

Student Ratted Out for Remembering Unperson Kate Steinle

In liberal academia, no thought crime goes unpunished:

A student at the University of California San Diego has been contacted to report to its Office for the Prevention of Harassment & Discrimination after hanging pro-Kate Steinle posters across the campus.

On the evening of Dec. 7, Gregory Lu hung 150 posters of Steinle’s smiling face with the words “She had dreams too” in highly traversed areas across campus that other students typically hang items on, such as bulletin boards and the free speech area.

Four days later, an investigator with the Office for the Prevention of Harassment & Discrimination [i.e., the Thought Police] emailed Lu asking to meet with him.

Correctly perceiving the meeting as an attempt to intimidate him into no longer expressing nonconformist (i.e., nonleftist) views, Lu wisely consulted a lawyer.

He had been ratted out via an online incident report, after having been followed around as he hung the posters. Unsurprisingly, the posters had disappeared when he checked back the next day.

The same day Lu was contacted by the bias office, the UC San Diego College Democrats had also called the posters “racist propaganda” targeting the “undocumented community” in a statement posted on their Facebook page. It went on to describe the posters as “displays of hate.”

Lu put up the posters on behalf of the newly formed group Right Wing West, whose members “want to remain unnamed because they are concerned they will be targeted by progressive peers or overzealous administrators.” The group put up the Kate Steinle “She Had Dreams Too” posters at numerous West Coast schools, where they were promptly torn down. At U.C. Berkeley, the pictures of Kate Steinle were ripped up in apparent hatred.

It wasn’t enough that Kate Steinle was murdered by lowlife illegal alien Jose Ines Garcia Zarate, who had already been deported five times. It wasn’t enough that Zarate was running around loose because local authorities had deliberately refused to turn him over to immigration officials. It wasn’t enough that a San Francisco jury outrageously found him guilty only of a firearm possession charge after he had shot her dead in broad daylight in front of witnesses. Now she must be forgotten completely, because her tragic story conflicts with the liberal narrative.

If anyone brings up this unperson, respond by asking, “Kate who?” Otherwise, you too may be suspected of thought crime.

Kate Steinle Denied Justice

Young Kate Steinle was denied the protection promised by government when she was shot in front of an audience by illegal alien Jose Ines Garcia Zarate. Now she has been denied justice:

Jurors Thursday afternoon acquitted the illegal immigrant accused of killing Kate Steinle as she walked with her father on a crowded San Francisco pier of all charges except for felony possession of a firearm. …

Steinle was walking with her father and a family friend in July 2015 when she was shot, collapsing into her father’s arms. Garcia Zarate had been released from the San Francisco jail about three months before the shooting, despite a request by federal immigration authorities to detain him for deportation.

He had been deported five times and was wanted for a sixth deportation.

Those responsible for Zarate running around loose are complicit in the killing.

The undocumented Democrat could get from 16 months to 3 years on the weapons charge, the only crime that the presumably ultra-left San Francisco jurors would acknowledge occurred. Given the locale, the judge is likely to go light, despite Zarate having run away after he shot Steinle.

Not since the O.J. verdict has jury nullification resulted in such an appalling travesty of justice. Moonbattery has reduced California to a lunatic asylum without walls, run by the craziest of the inmates. The last sane Californians are advised to escape and other Americans to stay away for their own safety.

Sheriff Responsible for Kate Steinle’s Death Has License Suspended

Turns out there is still some vestigial rule of law in San Franfreakshow:

San Francisco Sheriff Ross Mirkarimi’s driver license has been suspended for failing to report a traffic accident that he was involved in last October.

Mirkarimi has been at the center of a debate over sanctuary city policies after a five-time deported, seven-time convicted felon illegal alien allegedly shot and killed 32-year-old Kate Steinle at San Francisco’s Pier 14 last month.

The Sheriff’s department had requested and taken custody of Juan Francisco Lopez-Sanchez prior to the shooting, and purposefully did not notify immigration authorities from U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) upon his release from jail.

Sheriff Mirkarimi has no regrets where his enabling of Kate Steinle’s senseless and easily preventable death is concerned.

Mirkarimi has defended his department’s release of Lopez-Sanchez despite massive public outcry. He told CNN’s Jake Tapper that sanctuary city policies “make us safer.”

Lopez-Sanchez has said that he chose San Francisco knowing that sanctuary city policies insulated him from deportation.

More background on Sheriff Mirkarimi:

At the time of Lopez-Sanchez’s release he was having his own criminal record expunged. A charge of domestic violence for actions against his wife was later downgraded to false imprisonment. He pled guilty in 2012 and was sentenced to one day in jail, anger management classes and three months of probation. He had since sought to have the records expunged completely and succeeded in doing so on April 20, just five days after Lopez-Sanchez’s release.

Joe Arpaio, this guy ain’t. But then, I’m sure Mirkarimi gets along with San Francisco pols better than Sheriff Joe could ever do.

Amnesty Advocate Luis Gutierrez Suffers Meltdown When Called on Calling Kate Steinle’s Death a “Little Thing”

Not all “Representatives” infesting the Beltway represent Americans. Possibly the most blatant example of one who does not is congresscritter Luis Gutierrez (D-IL), a fanatical proponent of the displacement of the American population. He infamously dismissed the death of Kate Steinle as a consequence of San Francisco’s sanctuary city policy as a “little thing.” Then, when his own words came back to haunt him, he blew a gasket:

Gutierrez, an illegal-immigration activist, proved he can’t handle the truth as he became completely unhinged when confronted with his own words by an immigration expert.

Jessica Vaughan, director of policy studies at the Center for Immigration Studies, was testifying before the Senate Judiciary Committee on Tuesday about the dangers of “sanctuary city” policies.

When Gutierrez took the floor he accused Vaughan of not being informed and said she was “exploiting” the murder of Kate Steinle, the young woman who was murdered by a 5-time-deported illegal criminal, to make a buck.

Vaughan had angered Gutierrez by repeatedly referencing a remark he had made about Steinle’s murder. Gutierrez had told Telemundo during an interview on July 16 (emphasis added), “Every time a little thing like this happens, [Republicans] use the most extreme example to say it must be eliminated.”

Gutierrez’s testimony offered the Steinle family a few platitudes about his “sympathies,” but he was only able to keep it together for a short while.

Stand back, here comes his meltdown. The duckspeak starts to give way to fireworks at 3:30:

America Begins to Sink Under Deluge of Illegal Aliens

The USA will soon be replaced by a different country with a different population if something doesn’t change. According to projections, 1.5 million rapidly reproducing illegal aliens will be added to the population this year alone:

This year, the Department of Homeland Security’s (DHS) Catch and Release policy — whereby border crossers and illegal aliens are readily released from federal custody into the interior of the U.S. — is on track to release roughly 434,000 border crossers and illegal aliens into the country by the end of the year. This projection is based on current estimates that more than 36,000 border crossers and illegal aliens have been released from DHS custody every month since the beginning of the year.

Additionally, Princeton Policy Advisors researcher Steven Kopits projects that in 2019, there will be up to 500,000 illegal aliens at the southern border who successfully cross into the U.S. undetected by Border Patrol agents. These are foreign nationals whom federal immigration officials are unaware of and are usually only deported after they commit a crime in the U.S.

If they are even deported after committing a crime, they come right back again. Recall that Jose Ines Garcia Zarate, who went virtually unpunished after shooting Kate Steinle in front of onlookers, had already been deported five times.

Hold on, there’s more:

Also, should visa overstay levels continue at the same pace as in Fiscal Year 2017, there could potentially be about 630,000 illegal aliens added to the U.S. population after overstaying their visas.

Meanwhile, Trump proclaims that he wants to increase to “the largest numbers ever” the tsunami of legal immigrants gushing in, overwhelmingly from the Third World.

Until recently, it was regarded as obvious that like every other country, America has an interest in maintaining its demographic stability. But Cultural Marxists have the whip hand now, so even pointing that out would cost any mainstream politician or opinionator his job.

Annual illegal immigration costs American taxpayers $116 billion.

That’s only in direct costs.

Research by the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine has discovered that immigration to the country shifts about $500 billion in wages away from working and middle class Americans toward new arrivals and economic elites.

No one would have believed it, but the situation was less catastrophic under Obama.

Illegal immigration under the Trump administration this year is projected to surpass every year of illegal immigration levels that the Obama administration oversaw, as Breitbart News has noted.

No wonder treason isn’t punished anymore. Everyone in Washington could be charged with it.

Probably worried that his supporters will come to the conclusion that they were conned, Trump has threatened to close the border if Mexico does not do what Congress could but won’t do — put a stop to the escalating invasion. The media’s reaction: don’t you dare.

We’ll see what happens. If it isn’t drastic, Trump is finished, and so is America.

Sanctuary State Mayhem

Is aiding and abetting murder still against the law? If so, every Democrat in the sanctuary state of California had better seek representation in light of the infuriating case of Carlos Eduardo Arevalo Carranza:

An illegal immigrant with prior convictions and multiple arrests for offenses such as false imprisonment and battery has been taken into custody in the stabbing death of a woman in San Jose, California.

The first of his US arrests was for illegally crossing the border from Mexico. If only that were not so easy to do, it would not have led to a far more serious arrest.

According to police,

Carlos Eduardo Arevalo Carranza, 24, stalked 59-year-old Bambi Larson before breaking into her home and killing her in her bedroom last month.

Uh oh. This might be a violation of his probation for false imprisonment, burglary, and drug charges.

Kate Steinle’s death made no impression on California’s moonbat ruling class.

Prior to the murder,

Santa Clara County officials ignored no less than nine U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement detainer requests for the self-professed gang member.

That likely resulted in Bambi Larson’s death. It is what we have come to expect of the liberal weenies running the erstwhile Golden State. They will always side with foreigners against Americans, and with criminals against the law-abiding.

Speaking of weenies, the killer will be glad to hear that Gavin Newsom has unilaterally declared a moratorium on executions, in arrogant opposition to the will of the voters as expressed in propositions 66 and 62 in 2016. Prop 66 fast-tracked executions in California; it passed. Prop 62 would have abolished the death penalty; it failed. No matter, Governor Gavin has spoken.

Ana Navarro Expresses Contempt for Dead Americans

The shutdown drama has highlighted how fundamentally opposed Democrats are to securing the border, even in the face of a serious crisis. You have to wonder if these people care at all about Kate Steinle, Ronil Singh, and the numberless other Americans who have been killed by the lawless lowlifes who exploit the situation to pour into our country from the Third World. For an answer, we turn to an official mouthpiece of the Democrat Party, CNN. When the topic turns to Americans dying because liberal bureaucrats refuse to secure the border and enforce immigration law, watch CNN propagandist Ana Navarro role her eyes and even file her nails to express her haughty contempt.

Mollie Tibbetts Murder Proves No Corner of America Is Safe

The term “Montezuma’s revenge” takes on a more menacing meaning in light of the horrific story of Mollie Tibbetts, which reaches us from Montezuma, Iowa:

An undocumented immigrant is in custody, charged with first-degree murder in the Mollie Tibbetts investigation, authorities said.

The undocumented immigrant illegal alien is 24-year-old Cristhian Bahena Rivera of Mexico, who has been in the area as long as 7 years. Maybe he arrived as one the thousands of unaccompanied minors who pour over the border, forming history’s youngest conquering army. Mollie Tibbetts was 20 when last seen alive.

She went missing in neighboring Brooklyn, Iowa, population 1,400. Not even tiny towns in Iowa are insulated from Third World savagery now. America is under invasion; no corner of it is safe.

Meanwhile, the liberals who created this intolerable situation don’t want us to talk about some girl in Iowa, who we are expected to regard as insignificant:

They didn’t want us to talk about Kate Steinle either.

Illegal Alien Roberto Garza Palacios Fined $280 After Killing Two Government Agents

Not even illegal aliens are completely above the law, as Roberto Garza Palacios learned the hard way after killing two government agents:

The driver of a Honda Accord that fatally struck an FBI agent and a fire investigator on the side of a Maryland highway has paid a $280 fine, concluding a case of negligent driving lodged against him.

Roberto Garza Palacios, 28, did not have to appear in court and did not receive jail time, according to court records and lawyers involved in the case, which ended with the June 25 payment.

You can mow lawns all day and not make $280. This is a lesson Garza Palacious will not soon forget.

Unfortunately for Garza Palacios, Maryland is not yet a sanctuary state like California, so he may encounter further inconvenience.

Garza Palacios, a Guatemalan native, still faces possible deportation. On May 3, officers from Immigration and Customs Enforcement took him into custody at his home in Gaithersburg and charged him with overstaying and violating the terms of a work visa that had expired in 2009, according to ICE officials.

Deportation could mean having to travel all the way up from Guatemala to sneak back into the country again. But Garza Palacios has managed to avoid that hassle in the past.

Three years earlier, ICE learned he had been arrested in Montgomery County and asked jail officials to place a hold on him, but that request was not honored and Garza Palacios was released, according to county and federal officials.

Carlos Wolff (age 36) and Sander Cohen (age 33) join Kate Steinle and the many other Americans who would be alive today were immigration law enforced.

California Lightens Criminal Punishments: The Predictable Results

The ostensibly unintended consequences of liberal foolishness are often so easily predictable that you have to wonder if they really are unintended. Yet they must be; otherwise, the progressives infesting California would have to be clinically insane. For example, in 2014 the erstwhile Golden State reduced penalties for drug and property crimes. Consequently,

Larcenies increased about 9 percent by 2016, or about 135 more thefts per 100,000 residents than if tougher penalties had remained, according to results of a study by the nonpartisan Public Policy Institute of California released Tuesday.

Thefts from motor vehicles accounted for about three-quarters of the increase. San Francisco alone recorded more than 30,000 auto burglaries last year, which authorities largely blamed on gangs.

The gangs are often of Latin American origin. San Francisco is a magnet for them, being famous for taking its sanctuary status to such an extreme that Jose Garcia Zarate was sentenced to time served for killing Kate Steinle in front of an audience, presumably because he is an illegal alien who has already been deported five times.

Proposition 47 lowered criminal sentences for drug possession, theft, shoplifting, identity theft, receiving stolen property, writing bad checks and check forgery from felonies that can bring prison terms to misdemeanors that often bring minimal jail sentences.

Have moonbats learned anything from this resulting in exactly what any sane person would expect? Lenore Anderson clearly has not. Her Californians for Safety and Justice helped pass Proposition 47.

“This report shows we are making progress,” she said in a statement calling for less spending on prisons and more on programs to help reduce the cycle of crime.

The lightening of drug penalties has also had its effect:

Reduced penalties mean fewer drug addicts now seem to be getting treatment, then “are stealing to support their habit,” said San Luis Obispo County Chief Probation Officer Jim Salio, president of Chief Probation Officers of California.

Before moonbattery spiraled out of control, California was a nice place for everyone. Now, it’s a nice place for criminals.

Illegal Immigration Across Our Open Borders Is Exploding

When it comes to our effectively open borders, the more things change, the more they stay the same — that is, the more they get even worse:

Illegal immigration along U.S.-Mexico border surged 230 percent in April compared to last year, according to new numbers released Thursday that experts said expose major loopholes in American immigration law.

Sending the National Guard to the border doesn’t matter. It wouldn’t matter if they sent the entire U.S. military. Here’s why:

Perhaps 75 percent of all migrants caught by Border Patrol agents are given catch and release, said Brandon Judd, president of the National Border Patrol Council, which represents line agents.

The invaders know that even if they are caught, they will probably be released. Those rare few who are deported can just try again. Remember that Kate Steinle’s killer had already been deported five times.

Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen aptly describes the insanity:

“If you have an alarm in your home and you catch a burglar and you call the police and the police come, and in fact it is an illegal entry into your home. But the police then tell you that they have absolutely no ability to detain or remove those criminals and the criminals stay in your house, you would not tell me that is home security. That is what we face at the border.”

The invaders don’t want to live in the Third World. Why should we want to live in it? But the supply of invaders eager to avail themselves of our generous welfare state is infinite. Soon our world will become theirs.

Clearly this is a national emergency, on a par with any other massive foreign invasion. But powerful people in the government and media want America transformed into a quasi–Third World country. Liberals believe this will allow them to secure more power — potentially unlimited power. If what California has become since its demographic transformation is any indication, they are right.

Denver Defies ICE, Releases Killer Illegal Alien

They did it. The leftists running the Denver Sheriff Department actually let Ivan Zamarripa-Castaneda let free, ignoring the ICE detainer request for this illegal alien with American blood on his hands.

Mexican citizen Zamarripa-Castaneda, in the USA illegally, drunkenly crashed his truck into a semi, killing John Anderson of Lone Tree, Colorado. He has been charged with vehicular homicide, driving under the influence, and leaving the scene of an accident resulting in death. But illegal aliens are special, so Denver authorities let him go on $25,000 bail, then gave him an hour head start for the border before telling ICE.

The odds of Zamarripa-Castaneda showing up for his trial are slim. As with Jose Ines Garcia Zarate, who was sentenced to time served after shooting Kate Steinle to death in front of an audience in San Francisco, being an illegal alien gets him off the hook for killing an American. That is how much the progressives in charge of liberal cities hate us, and love anyone who can be revered as the “other.”

Illegal Kills in Hit & Run, Denver Still Won’t Hold Him for ICE

Even after killing someone in a hit and run, an illegal alien is safe from immigration authorities in a city run by liberals. ICE agents want to take the killer into custody, in hopes of eventually sending him back to Mexico. However,

Denver stopped honoring detainer orders from ICE in 2014. If the undocumented immigrant, 26-year-old Ivan Zamarripa-Castaneda, posts his $25,000 bond, he’s free to go until his next court date.

The driver of a semi crashed into by the undocumented Democrat was killed, or to be more specific, Kate Steinle’ed.

At least if he manages to post the bond, he might deport himself, rather than face charges for vehicular homicide. But then he would probably return later, showing up in another sanctuary city under a different name. That’s one reason other countries defend their borders.

Rule of law is hard enough to maintain when all of the authorities are on the same side. With sanctuary cities siding with criminals who are in the country illegally, the result is this:

Illegal Alien Deported 44 Times

Manuel Orrego-Savala (a.k.a. Manuel Orrego-Zavala, Alex Cabrera Gonsales), the drunk-driving illegal alien who killed Indianapolis Colts linebacker Edwin Jackson and his Uber driver, had been deported twice. Jose Ines Garcia Zarate, the illegal alien who shot Kate Steinle but was then found not guilty by reason of jury nullification, had been deported five times. They say they will deport Zarate yet again. It makes you wonder how many times you can be deported from this country and keep bouncing back to wreak more havoc due to the virtually undefended border and underenforced immigration laws:

One Mexican managed to get deported 44 times in 15 years — which means he also managed to sneak back across the border at least that many times.

The runner-up was ousted 40 times from 2001 to 2015. No. 3, 4 and 5 on the list were deported 35, 34 and 31 times, respectively, according to data provided to The Washington Times by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement. …

All five were Mexican, and among them they had amassed 14 criminal convictions for illegal entry, seven for illegal re-entry, three for vehicle theft and one count of “cruelty toward wife.”

Kate’s Law would help, but has languished in the Senate. If it ever makes it past Democrats and RINOs, it will mean 2 years in prison for illegal aliens caught after they have already been deported, 10 years if they have been deported twice.

What would help more would be a minefield along the border and catapults to send home anyone who makes it across.

Stabbing the Diners Americans Won’t Stab

As they proved by letting Jose Ines Garcia Zarate essentially get away with murder, the moonbats running California learned nothing from the senseless and easily avoidable death of Kate Steinle. They continue to allow criminals who are in the country illegally to run amok:

A California man suspected of stabbing a fellow diner last month is an illegal immigrant who’s been deported previously seven times, a spokesman for Immigration and Customs Enforcement tells The Daily Caller.

That beats out Zarate, who had been deported five times when San Francisco officials refused to hold him for ICE and he subsequently killed Kate Steinle.

The suspect, Eulalio Miniz Orozco, allegedly was captured on surveillance cameras on Dec. 21 getting up from his table while eating and brutally stabbing a fellow diner in the neck at Lola’s Supermarket in the Santa Rosa area. …

Orozco is also known as Ricardo Velasquez-Romero, according to ICE. ICE placed a detainer on Velasquez on Dec 28 “in connection to a stabbing that occurred in Santa Rosa, Calif,” ICE spokesman James Schwab told TheDC.

But you know how that goes in a sanctuary state. Even if the victim dies, Orozco/Velasquez-Romero may find his way back onto American streets, where he will continue to enrich the multicultural tapestry.

In addition to the deportations, the maniac “also has multiple prior criminal convictions.” These include felony drug and weapons charges.

Regarding the stabbing of the 61-year-old victim,

Santa Rosa Police said the victim and the suspect had been sitting at different tables in the restaurant and had not spoken to each other.

“At one point, the suspect stood up and walked toward the victim,” the local police said a news release. “The suspect had an unknown stabbing instrument in his hand and stabbed the victim once in the neck. The suspect then fled the area on foot.”

Its liberal rulers have fundamentally transformed California into a place where you can be sitting in a diner, minding your own business, when some savage emissary of the Third World walks up and stabs you for no particular reason.

Gerry Brown Pardons Criminals Who Would Have Been Deported

Jose Ines Garcia Zarate had been deported five times, and was running around loose because the sanctuary city of San Francisco had refused to hold him for immigration authorities when he shot Kate Steinle dead in front of an audience. After the jury found him guilty of nothing more than a weapons possession violation, the public became understandably enraged at California’s immigration moonbattery. Yet the moonbats in charge continue to double down:

Escalating the state’s showdown with the Trump administration over illegal immigration, California Gov. Jerry Brown used a Christmas holiday tradition to grant pardons Saturday to two men who were on the verge of being deported for committing crimes while in the U.S.

That will teach Trump! The beneficiaries of Brown’s malicious largesse are Cambodians Rottanak Kong and Mony Neth.

Kong was convicted on felony joyriding in 2003 in Stanislaus County at age 25 and sentenced to a year in jail. Neth was convicted on a felony weapons charge with a gang enhancement and a misdemeanor charge of receiving stolen property with a value of $400 or less in 1995 in Stanislaus County.

We are not so short of car thieves and gangbangers that we need to import them from Cambodia. But Governor Moonbeam has a defiant pose to uphold.

Brown defied the White House in October by signing into law so-called “sanctuary state” legislation, placing limitations on state and local law enforcement’s ability to help federal officials enforce immigration violations.

He fortified the state budget with millions more in spending to help mount a range of immigration-related legal challenges, including cases over the ending of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program.

Other cases seek to prevent construction of a U.S.-Mexico border wall, and to stop the federal government from withholding public safety grants from localities that don’t expend public resources on immigration enforcement.

It isn’t all about Brown posturing as the Anti-Trump. Within the past generation, mass Third World immigration — much of it illegal — has transformed California from Ronald Reagan’s launching pad to a ultra-left outlier than barely belongs in the Union. Think of the utopian moonbattery that could be achieved after the floodgates have been held open wide for just a few decades more…

DHS to Publish Weekly List of Crimes Committed by Illegal Aliens in Sanctuary Cities

Any attempt to get the illegal immigration situation under control will result in the media bringing out its big guns: tearjerker stories about the put-upon victims, impoverished urchins with their daddies dragged away in chains by the Stormtroopers, leaving one and all with the certitude that only a total monster would enforce immigration law. For once, those defending America are fighting fire with fire:

In order to better inform Americans about the impact illegal aliens are having on crime rates in sanctuary cities, President Donald Trump [yesterday] ordered the Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security to publish a weekly list of crimes committed by illegals.

In an executive order titled “Enhancing Public Safety in the Interior of the United States,” Trump directed Secretary John Kelly to be transparent with citizens.

This transparency will come in the form of “a comprehensive list of criminal actions committed by aliens and any jurisdiction that ignored or otherwise failed to honor any detainers with respect to such aliens.”

Local Politician Buses “Refugees” to Merkel

The best idea would be to never let them into the country in the first place. Second best would be to deport them immediately. Third best: pack them on buses and deliver them to Merkel.

A group of 51 asylum seekers housed in the Bavarian district of Landshut were being sent to Berlin to Chancellor Angela Merkel, the district office said on Thursday. …

The refugees being taken to Berlin were living in state shelters because they would otherwise be homeless in Landshut, where renting out a flat is very expensive, the district office said in a statement. …

[Landhut’s chief administrator Peter] Dreier justified his step saying Germany’s refugee policy would have to change and things could not go on as they were until now. He said he was going to Berlin with the refugees to personally register his protest with the chancellor.

The New Year’s Eve blitzkrieg of sexual assaults on German women by Muslim “refugees” was the last straw. Germans have had it.

Moonbat Law Enforcement Officer of the Year: Ross Mirkarimi

Ross Mirkarimi
San Francisco doesn’t make them like Harry Callahan these days.

How did he manage to lose? Ross Mirkarimi was the perfect Sheriff for the moonbat Mecca, San Francisco:

This past July, 32-year-old Kate Steinle was shot and killed on Pier 14 in San Francisco. Sanchez, the accused murderer and an illegal immigrant, had been deported five times before the murder, but because of San Francisco’s status as a sanctuary city, he knew he could avoid another deportation. And indeed, when he was arrested in March on marijuana sales charges, he should have been deported again. Instead, the office of Sheriff Ross Mirkarimi released him. And in another twist, Mirkarimi had reportedly formerly been the spokesman for the attorney representing Sanchez.

So perfect is Mirkarimi for the city that inflicted Nasty Pelosi upon us, he isn’t even allowed to carry a gun because he failed a firearms test and also because he has (or had) a criminal record for abusing his wife. He also recently had his driver’s license suspended after failing to report a traffic accident he was involved in.

Just how awful is Ross Mirkarimi? He earned an endorsement from the ultimate moonbat, cognitively challenged dictator-adoring zillionaire communist Danny Glover:

If Quentin Tarantino ever has a nice word to say about a law enforcement officer, it will be Mirkarimi. Expect him to show up in some high-level position in the Injustice Department or Department of Homeland Insecurity.

Maybe there is hope for San Francisco yet — but not unless the equally deserving Pelousy follows him out of office next fall.

Sanctuary Cities Are Releasing Massive Numbers of Dangerous Illegal Alien Criminals

Kate Steinle isn’t the only American to pay a high price for lunatic sanctuary city policies. Judicial Watch reports that

in less than a year 340 sanctuary cities, counties and states around the U.S. released 9,295 alien offenders that Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) was seeking to deport. More than half had significant prior criminal histories and 600 were released at least twice by jurisdictions that protect criminal aliens from deportation by refusing to comply with ICE detainers. The figures were made public recently by the Center for Immigration Studies (CIS), a nonprofit dedicated to researching the consequences of legal and illegal immigration into the United States.

Of the illegal immigrants released into unsuspecting communities, 58% had prior felony charges or convictions and 37% had serious prior misdemeanor charges, the CIS probe found. An astounding 2,320 of the freed offenders were subsequently arrested within the eight-month time period studied for new crimes. Here’s an enraging example included in the CIS document: Victor Aureliano Hernandez Ramirez, arrested in July 2015 for raping and bludgeoning a 64-year-old California woman who died eight days later. Ramirez had been arrested for battery a year earlier but the county sheriff blew off an ICE detainer that would have deported him in accordance with California’s state sanctuary law.

Once these criminal illegal aliens are freed by sanctuary cities, ICE has difficulty tracking them down, according to records obtained for the study. As of last year, 6,460 (69%) were still at large. Of those still at large, 1,377 (20%) had another criminal arrest following the one that resulted in the original ICE detainer. This is why a violent criminal, Francisco Javier Chavez, is on the loose. In August 2015 he was arrested for beating his girlfriend’s 2-year-old daughter and, despite an extensive criminal record that includes felony drug and drunk-driving convictions, a California sheriff’s department ignored an ICE detainer and released him.

California is the biggest offender when it comes to blowing off federal orders to hand over criminal illegal aliens, according to ICE records cited in the study.

This is for the same reason that large cities have obviously unadvisable sanctuary city policies. Whites are a minority in California, as they are in many large cities. Once this tipping point has been reached, liberal fools and nonwhites team up to impose any policy that panders to nonwhites, no matter how destructive. This is why the liberal holy grail of achieving a nationwide white minority will spell the total ruin of the country.

County Clerk Kim Davis Hauled Off in Handcuffs for Her Christian Faith

The Fundamental Transformation of what was once America has come to this. Rowan, Kentucky County Clerk Kim Davis has been hauled off in handcuffs to a prison cell for refusing to betray her Christian faith by participating in the grotesque and blasphemous farce of homosexual “marriage.”

Now we see the point of the liberal establishment’s sudden intense interest in turning the official validation of homosexual depravity into a “right.” This isn’t about pandering to perverts, who make up only a tiny percentage of the population. As Mike Huckabee correctly notes, it is about the criminalization of Christianity.

Davis is a Democrat. Hopefully her fate will alert other Democrats to what their party has degenerated into, and cause them to realize that it is no longer possible to be both a Democrat and a Christian.

To think our ancestors came to this continent to escape religious persecution. To think the country was founded on the concept of individual liberty. How disgusted our forefathers would be at what we have allowed this once great nation to become.

David Bunning, the federal judge who ordered Davis to be imprisoned for her faith, has no jurisdiction in the matter. In contrast, Davis was upholding Kentucky law. But as Shrillary might shriek, what difference at this point does it make? Davis’s persecution is based on an arbitrary decree by the Supreme Court intended to impose the normalization of homosexuality that was conspicuously lawless.

Ignoring her First Amendment right to freedom of religion, pundits on TV endlessly recite the magic phrase “law of the land,” which is supposed to dispel all resistance to the Supreme Court’s tyranny. Federal immigration laws are also the law of the land. Yet there are sanctuary cities across the country where local authorities explicitly refuse to obey these laws. You don’t see any mayors getting hauled off in chains for this, not even in San Francisco, where scofflaw sanctuary policies directly resulted in Kate Steinle’s death.

Any reasonable country would allow for conscientious objectors — provided the ultimate purpose of the Supreme Court’s decree was for homosexuals to pretend to be married. Sexual deviants could get official endorsement of their sick lifestyle in the next county. However, Kim Davis is not collateral damage of Obergefell v. Hodges; the punishment of sincere Christians who will not betray their faith is the true objective. Thou shalt have no gods before Big Government.

It is becoming increasingly obvious that liberals and Americans cannot live together peaceably in the same country. There will continue to be resistance to what the liberal ruling class is attempting to impose.

Hats off to Kim Davis, who is truly worthy to call herself an American. May her heroism inspire others to follow her example so that the country may be restored.

Quote of the Month

The esteemed countermoonbat Trey Gowdy sums up Obama’s attitude toward the people he rules with his pen and his phone:

The president said that he saw Trayvon – in Trayvon Martin, he saw his son. Well, I can tell you, those of us who have daughters, we saw our daughters in Kate Steinle.

They haven’t made us a minority in our own country quite yet. Why do we have so few representatives who give a damn about us?
