Obama is blaming Republicans for the brutal murder of a 32-year-old San Francisco woman last week.
Obama’s Press Secretary Josh Earnest is blaming Republicans after an illegal immigrant who was reportedly deported five times was charged with murder in California.
When Earnest was asked by reporters about critics of Obama’s immigration enforcement policies, Earnest insisted that it was Republicans who are at fault for voting against the Gang Of Eight bill last year, pointing out that it contained funding to increase border security.
“The fact is that the president has done everything within his power to make sure that we are focusing our law enforcement resources on criminals and those who pose a threat to public safety and it’s because of the political efforts of Republicans that we have not been able to make the kind of investment that we’d like to make in securing our border and keeping our community safe,” Earnest said.
Francisco Sanchez was charged with shooting and killing a 32-year-old San Francisco woman last week, leading to criticism from illegal immigration activists. Earnest deferred questions about details of the case to the Department of Homeland Security, Breitbart reported.
Fox News reported:
San Francisco prosecutors Monday charged an illegal immigrant — with a lengthy criminal record and deported five times — with the murder of a young woman at a popular city pier.
Francisco Sanchez, a 45-year-old repeat drug offender released from jail April 15 after law enforcement officials declined to prosecute him, was expected to be arraigned Tuesday in the killing of Kathryn Steinle, 32.
The charge came hours after federal immigration officials fired back at San Francisco for putting Sanchez back on the street, saying “this terrible tragedy” could have been prevented if they had been notified of the suspect’s release.
Sanchez, a Mexican national, had been in the custody of the San Francisco Sheriff’s Department on a decade-old drug charge when he was released.
