The senseless death of Kathryn Steinle in San Francisco, last week, spurred a much needed conversation around illegal immigration and sanctuary cities.
In this week’s Justice with Jeanine Pirro, the Judge took aim at sanctuary cities, and their defenders.
“I for one am sick and tired of this politically correct nonsense. What is correct about allowing a career criminal who should not have been here in the first place, to walk the streets?” Pirro exclaimed.
Later she noted that although we are all immigrants, “but most of us came here pursuant to the rules.” She added, “The happiest days for me as both a sitting DA and and judge, was when I welcomed newly naturalized citizens who worked hard to get here and pledged their allegiance to America.”
“What to do?” she asked. “I’ll tell you what to do – you enforce the law.”
As she ran a scroll of victims murdered by illegal immigrants, Pirro turned her attention to the president – who likes to repeat, “our immigration system is broken.”
“I’ll tell you what’s broken Mr President,” she seethed,”the hearts of American families who have lost loved ones at the hands of illegals who repeatedly commit crimes that you let walk the streets.”
She noted that Obama was allowing the “wholesale rejection of federal law by sanctuary cities,” citing an Obama diktat from 2010 in which he openly stated that cities that violated immigration laws, would not be punished.
