This isn’t the first time that an illegal alien, who had no business being in our country, who was a career criminal, and was protected by a sanctuary city policy, brutally murdered an innocent person on the streets of San Francisco. Have people forgotten about the Bologna case from a few years ago?
In case you forgot, in 2008, a depraved illegal alien gang member by the name of Edwin Ramos brutally gunned down an entire family while they were driving home one day from a picnic in San Francisco’s Excelsior neighborhood.
48 year old Tony Bologna, his sons Michael, 20, and Matthew,16, were shot to death in their car by Ramos it what some say was a road rage incident and others claim was a mistaken identity for another rival gang member.
Just like with Francisco Sanchez, the illegal alien who shot young Kathryn Steinle the other day, Ramos had been under the protection of San Francisco’s insane sanctuary city policy.
As you probably have heard, these sanctuary city policies prevent local law enforcement from cooperating with federal authorities on immigration matters.
Here in Orange County, I know of two cities for sure that have these policies in place: Anaheim and Santa Ana.
In San Francisco, shortly after the Bologna murders, this dangerous policy was instituted and trumpeted by our current Lt. Governor and former San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom.
Newsom even went out of his way to use taxpayer dollars to fund ads reassuring illegal immigrants that his city would not turn them over to federal agents to be deported. Read below!
It was also the same sanctuary city policy that former San Francisco D.A. and current candidate for U.S. Senate Kamala Harris encouraged and supported.
Even though Ramos had murdered Tony Bologna and his two boys in the most brutal fashion, and even though the widow and Mother of the victims had begged Harris to seek the death penalty, Harris refused to seek capital punishment against this vicious killer.
Had Ramos and now Sanchez not been protected and comforted under the umbrella of San Francisco’s sanctuary city ordinance, it is very likely these victims would still be alive today and these families wouldn’t have to live with the torment knowing that their loved ones are now gone!
After hearing all the talk about who is to blame over this, and there is plenty of blame to go around, including toward our lawless President and his failed administration, it seems to me that the three individuals who are getting a free-ride over their involvement in these tragedies are those who were directly responsible for instituting and enforcing these policies to begin with! Those folks are: Kamala Harris, Gavin Newsom, and even our Governor Jerry Brown.
We shouldn’t forget that Brown was Attorney General during the time that these lawless ordinances were enacted and we shouldn’t forget that he signed a state law in 2013 known as the “Trust Act.”
This so-called “Trust Act,” whose author is the same lunatic progressive who gave us the Transgender Bathroom law, allowed cities to expand their sanctuary city status and it made it state law that cities were not required to notify ICE unless the illegal alien in question was accused of a serious felony. Otherwise, that illegal alien did not have to be turned over to federal officials.
Only in California can a horrible murder take place directly because of these ridiculous policies and not only do these liberal politicians who enact them escape responsibility, but they actually double-down on it, which has now led to another high-profile death!
Harris is the only one of these three who will face voters next year in her attempt to replace Barbra Boxer for the U.S. Senate. My question is why aren’t republicans right now holding Harris to account for the obvious blood on her hands for now four confirmed deaths due to these lawless city policies, which she supported and endorsed as District Attorney and now as our state A.G.?
People are dead today because of this insanity and the progressives who enacted these ordinances are not being sufficiently held to account!
The fact is the Bologna case and the Steinle case aren’t the only cases where an illegal alien was allowed to slip through the cracks and went on to murder innocent Americans!
Locally from Los Angeles, we have the Jamiel Shaw case where a young teenager was murdered by another illegal alien gang member over a red backpack that he was wearing at the time of his murder. Shaw’s murder took place near his home just a few months before the Bologna murders.
We have countless other cases from across our country just like the Shaw, Bologna, and Steinle cases proving that our government’s lack of enforcement is leading to people’s deaths and is responsible for destroying families and making our cities less safe! Why is America putting up with this nonsense?!!
As far as I’m concerned, we can add Kamala Harris, Gavin Newsom, Jerry Brown, Obama, and that lunatic Sheriff up there to the long list of those with blood dripping from their hands over these senseless deaths!
Something tells me these narcissistic politicians won’t lose much sleep over the loss of these lives and how they have made our streets and neighborhoods less safe, while protecting foreigners who have no business being in our country to begin with! May God have mercy on their souls one day! Read below!
