Calif. lawmaker: ‘Sanctuary city’ Democrats have blood on their hands

Democrats are running for cover in the aftermath of the murder of a woman in the “sanctuary city” of San Francisco by an illegal alien, and now former California Assemblyman Tim Donnelly is calling them out.

Donnelly, a Republican, lambasted the Democrats who have championed the city’s sanctuary status for trying to make the conversation about Donald Trump and his comments about illegal immigrants instead of about policies that have made such crimes possible.

In an op-ed for Breitbart he wrote:

If it were not for the passionate defense of sanctuary policies, and their support for expanding them statewide by Democrats like [California Attorney General Kamala] Harris, illegal alien killers like Sanchez, and presumably cop-killer Luis Enrique Monroy-Bracamonte — who gunned down two Sheriff’s deputies last year — might have been stopped before they committed such heinous crimes.

The sad thing is, that while this latest killing may have been random, it was both 100 percent predictable and 100 percent preventable.

If San Francisco authorities had respected the rights of its citizens to be safe walking the streets of their own city, and simply turned this seven-time felon, who had been deported five times, over to authorities, Kathryn Steinle would still be alive today.

Sanchez was in custody in March on drug charges, but because San Francisco refuses to abandon its explicit sanctuary policies, was turned loose on the streets of San Francisco in April instead of being turned over to immigration authorities.

Congratulations to [Gov. Jerry] Brown, Harris, [San Francisco Mayor Gavin] Newsom and [San Francisco Assemblyman Tom] Ammiano.

This killing is the result of your policy of coddling dangerous criminals, and your rampant obsession with protecting criminal illegal aliens is now on display for all the public to see. Don’t look now, but the blood on your hands is dripping onto your Gucci loafers.
