(National Sentinel) Immigration: As the Trump administration continues to weigh options for punishing cities that have adopted so-called “sanctuary” policies for illegal aliens, Attorney General Jeff Sessions told a group of local law enforcement officials Thursday such policies actually attract the most dangerous criminal aliens.
In placing blame where it belonged — not on cops but on the idiot Leftists who run such cities — Sessions noted those policies make communities less safe, Breitbart Texas reported.
“When cities like Philadelphia, Boston or San Francisco advertise that they have these policies, the criminals take notice,” AG Sessions told the police officers gathered at a Las Vegas conference center. “According to a recent study from the University of California Riverside, cities with these policies have more violent crime on average than those that don’t.”
As in the past, Sessions pointed to the case of San Francisco resident Kate Steinle, who was murdered in 2015 by a repeat illegal border jumper from Mexico whom the sheriff’s department had let go due to the city’s sanctuary policy.
“We all know the story of Kate Steinle, who was murdered in cold blood two years ago this month,” Sessions stated. “She was walking a pier in San Francisco with her father when an illegal alien—who had been deported five times and committed seven felonies—shot her in the back.”
“Her death was preventable—and it should have been prevented. She would still be alive today if her killer had been imprisoned or deported, as he should have been,” he said.
He laid her murder directly on the Democrats who run San Fran.
“He walked the streets freely because San Francisco refuses to cooperate with ICE, the AG explained. “In fact, he admitted that one reason he was in San Francisco that day was that he knew the city had these policies in place.”
Sessions also told the gathered officers they are not to blame for such senseless stupidity, but rather, he the politicians that keep them from doing their jobs are responsible. “I know that you want to help,” he said. “The problem is that politicians have forbidden you to help. That makes all of us—and especially police officers on the front lines—less safe.”
