Woman murdered at random by Illegal immigrant who had already been deported 5 times

Any immigration and border control policy that allows a man like this to re-enter the country five times is pure insanity.

from Daily Mail:

The family of a California woman who was allegedly shot dead by an illegal Mexican immigrant have criticized officials who didn’t hand him over after he was jailed just months before the attack.

Grieving relatives of Kathryn Steinle, 32, who was shot dead on San Francisco’s Pier 14 Thursday night, made the comments in light of revelations that alleged killer Francisco Sanchez, 45, had already been sent back over the border five times.

Immigration officials said that they had made him a ‘priority’ request for any law enforcement officers who picked him up.

But when he was arrested over marijuana four months ago in San Francisco he was let go, in accordance with city policy designed to give 'sanctuary’ to undocumented migrants.
Speaking to NBC Bay Area, Steinle’s mother, Liz Sullivan, said: 'It would have been so much better if he were gone. Absolutely.’

The reality of our immigration is this:  we certainly do have people crossing the border illegally who are are desperately trying to escape a bad situation, and for that reason, the United States needs to streamline her legal immigration process.  However, we also have lowlifes like this who are simply trying to escape their own criminal past by hopping the fence into a county whose leaders doesn’t care.

I have lived in my new spot for less than a week now and I am madly in love. I have come a long way from living in an emotional suitcase. But even during the shit show that is moving and unpacking I realized I am very simple when it comes to what makes me feel comfortable.

I immediately hung all my hats on the wall near the closet. For one, I mean, I love hats. But also friends always reach for them during wine induced dance parties which happened on Friday. (The first inaugural carpet spill happened at the same time. No one is surprised.)

I put photographs, artwork and quotes around the apartment within the first few hours of getting the keys.

Lighting yummy candles is so good too… My mom slipped this diptyque one (my favorite) in a box of stuff she had left for me before they headed up to Canada. The scent completely overtakes the smell of new cabinets and fresh paint.

And flowers. Sunflowers and orchids from people who came to see the new spot. Adds a little life to the place.

I need to put up curtains. I need to get the cracked window fixed. I need to find where to do laundry since there aren’t machines in the building.

But none of that really matters right now. I am home. And it feels so good.
