The Family of Kate Steinle Files Lawsuit Against U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement

The family of deceased Kate Steinle has filed a federal lawsuit against U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement. The suit, which seeks unspecified damages, names the city and county of San Francisco, former county Sheriff Ross Mirkarimi and the United States “for their failures to perform mandatory duties and/or for the unconstitutional and/or negligent acts and/or omissions of their officers, officials, agents and/or employees.” Kate Steinle was shot to death by 45-year-old Juan Francisco Lopez-Sanchez -on a San Francisco pier last summer. Juan Francisco Lopez-Sanchez is an undocumented immigrant illegal alien and a repeat felon who has been deported five times to Mexico.

The fatal shooting of Kate Steinle on a San Francisco pier last summer — allegedly at the hands of an undocumented immigrant deported five times from the United States — became a focal point of an angry national debate over illegal immigration.

On Friday, her family filed a federal lawsuit against U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, San Francisco County’s former sheriff, the federal Bureau of Land Management and the man who allegedly fired the deadly shot.

“Kate’s death was both foreseeable and preventable had the law enforcement agencies, officials and/or officers involved simply followed the laws, regulations and/or procedures which they swore to uphold,” the lawsuit said.

On the evening of July 1, 2015, Steinle was walking on a busy pier of the Embarcadero with her father when there was a single popping sound in the air. The 32-year-old medical device sales representative was shot in the chest, a bullet piercing her aorta, according to the lawsuit.
Her father, James, held her in his arms. “Help me Daddy,” were her last words to him, the lawsuit said. She died later at a hospital.

I so hope the family of Kate Steinle wins this lawsuit against San Francisco for their “sanctuary city” policies!!!

Barack Obama Slams Trump Building a Wall During Rutgers Commencement Speech … As the White House Builds a Higher Fence (VIDEO)


Isn’t this amazing and oh so typical, as Barack Obama tells a graduating class at Rutgers University during a commencement speech that building walls doesn’t change anything. Oh course this was a backhanded slap at Donald Trump by Obama. Could you be any more small? And more of a hypocrite? The liar in chief was back at it again trying to tell millennials that building a wall to keep illegals out was a bad this as the White House is currently constructing a taller fence at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue to keep people out. Shocker. Obama claims walls don’t solve ills, really?

President Obama used his commencement speech at Rutgers University to tear into Donald Trump’s trade agenda, his Muslim ban, and his planned wall on the U.S.-Mexico border.As he did at an address at Howard University earlier this spring, the president went straight after Trump’s most controversial policies after the usual bromides hailing graduates and name-dropping their favorite greasy spoons and watering holes.

‘The world is more interconnected than ever before. And it’s becoming more connected every day. Building walls won’t change that,’ Obama said.

‘To help ourselves, we’ve got to help others, not pull up the drawbridge and try to keep the world out,’ Obama said.

Obama never mentioned Donald Trump by name but he clearly advised against believing in the Republican candidate’s campaign platform. Obama stated, “The world is more interconnected than ever before. Building walls won’t change that.” Obama also said that ignorance is not a virtue and not knowing what you’re talking about shouldn’t be viewed as telling it like it is. It should be viewed as a rejection of responsible thought.

The White House fence is currently 6 feet tall, this one goes to 11.

But wait, Obama slams Trump for wanting to build a wall to protect the United States borders and sovereignty, as the White House is getting its fences raised 5 feet in order to keep trespassers out. Imagine that, higher and stronger fences do work. So it is okay for the White House to have a higher fence to keep people out, but it is not okay for the United States of America to have the same. First they installed spikes on top of the fence and now plan on making it taller.  Hmm, anyone see a double standard here?

The U.S. Secret Service plans to raise the height of the White House security fence by 5 feet and add a new concrete foundation to reduce the risk of fence-jumpers, according to a copy of an agency report obtained by the News4 I-Team.

The agency, along with the National Park Service, said it intends to begin building a “taller, stronger” fence to protect the White House grounds by 2018.

And from the Right Wing News comes more Obama hypocrisy when it comes to walls …

But, seriously, what about walls? Obama lives behind a big fence, one which the Secret Service wants to make bigger. Five feet bigger. And the security for the fence, an attempt to keep the world out, includes armed security, many with sniper rifles.

Apparently, walls work, because Team Obama is funding a wall on the Tunisia/Libya border to stop the flow of Islamists. There’s also partial funding for a wall in Jordan. And supposedly one in Niger to stop Boko Haram.

Randy Quaid & His Wife Evi Arrested at Vermont Border, Accused of Fleeing Canada Ahead of His Deportation Hearing


Randy Quaid and his wife Evi were arrested as “fugitives from justice” Friday night at the Vermont and Canada border in an apparent attempt to leave Canada before Quaid’s deportation back to the United States. The two were detained by U.S. Customs and Border Protection agents at the Vermont point of entry in Highgate at about 8 p.m. Quaid and his wife were taken into custody by troopers, where a judge set bail at $500,000 each. Randy Quaid had previously been denied permanent residency in Canada.

Randy Quaid was being held at the North West State Correctional Center and Evi Quaid at the Chittenden Regional Correctional Facility. According to an interview with the AP, the 65-year-old actor said from a detention center in Laval, Quebec, on Wednesday that he would like to resolve his legal issues in California and “move on with my life.” Quaid and his wife fled to Canada because Quaid is wanted in Santa Barbara, California, to face felony vandalism charges filed in 2010 after he and his wife, Evi, were found squatting in a guesthouse of a home they previously owned.

Who knew Quaid’s role as Cousin Eddie from the Vacation films was spot on to his real life persona as a wing-nut?

Randy Quaid and his wife were arrested as “fugitives from justice” Friday night at the border between Vermont and Canada, apparently attempting to leave Canada days before Quaid’s deportation back to the United States, PEOPLE has confirmed.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection agents detained Quaid and his wife, Evi, at the Vermont point of entry in Highgate at about 8 p.m. local time, according to a press release from state police.

Agents determined the Quaids were “fugitives from justice” from California, where they are wanted in connection with a felony vandalism case.

Who finds it rather ironic that Border patrol is able to arrest these two on the US-Canadian Border but some how agents cannot seem to do the same on the United States-Mexico? Maybe Quaid and his wife should have crossed the Southern border instead.

Top 5 Districts for Criminal Cases in U.S. District Court Are on Mexican Border … So Why is Donald Trump Getting Ripped for Stating the Truth?


CNS News is reporting that the top 5 districts for criminal cases in United States District Court are all on the Mexican border. Go figure, it must be a coincidence. As Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump gets hammered by the LEFT and so-called Republicans alike for his comments he made about illegal immigration to the US and crime, it would appear that he was actually speaking the truth. What reason could it possible be that the top 5 districts in the US for criminal cases are all along the US-Mexico border? This data comes from the US government, not The Donald.

US Border Patrol

According to data released by the U.S. Justice Department, 41.7 percent of the federal criminal cases that U.S. attorneys filed in U.S. district courts in fiscal 2014 were in the five U.S. attorneys’ districts that sit along the U.S.-Mexico border.

In fact, the five districts that sit along the border — those for Southern California, Arizona, New Mexico, Western Texas and Southern Texas — were the top five in the country for criminal cases filed in U.S. district courts.

The office of the U.S. attorney for Western Texas led the nation last year in filing criminal cases in U.S. district court, according to the United States Attorneys’ Annual Statistical Report for Fiscal 2014.

During the fiscal year, according to Table 1 in the report, the U.S. attorney for Western Texas filed 5,832 criminal cases in U.S. district court.

By contrast, there are 17 U.S. attorneys’ districts that sit in the lower 48 states along the Canadian border or the Great Lakes. These 17 districts, which run from the Western District of Washington to the District of Maine, filed a combined total of 5,257 criminal cases in U.S. district courts in fiscal 2014.

Before the gutless pant-load Republican politicians jump on the PC bandwagon of piling on Trump for his comments, they might just want to look at the facts. The RWN opines, hey MSM, Trump will take your apology now. Also, the Obama Administration should be ashamed of themselves that they have allowed this lawless behavior to go on.
