Well, we have a verdict for Kate Steinle’s killer: not guilty. He admitted to killing her but claimed it was an accident. That claim, of course, changed several times over the course of this story. Whether it was a result of media incompetence, his own lies, or some combination of both, I cannot say. He was, however, convicted of being a felon in possession of a firearm. Supposedly he is to be deported. Again. After all, he already came back five times, why not a sixth?
Either way, I’m not surprised. California is a Marxist paradise, after all.
Leftists are generally fond of using the “if it saves one life” defense, or its uglier cousin “you just want people to die” with regards to everything from government-run healthcare to regulation and gun control. When dealing with sanctuary cities and illegal immigrant crime, however, you will hear nothing but crickets from them. After all, only the Left is allowed to use such a blatant fallacy to guilt their opponents into silence.
Remy explains in a humorous video:
Trump was widely panned by his critics for suggesting that Mexico doesn’t exactly send us their best and brightest when the illegals hop over the border. I fail to see the error in his statement. A couple weeks ago I was talking with a friend who lives in Virginia, and she was lamenting the rapid growth of MS-13 in her locale, many of whom are illegals and/or are involved in illegal immigrant smuggling and, of course, much worse. We’re talking about Virginia here. It’s not exactly close to the border.
Ann Coulter suggested in her book In Trump We Trust that the real illegal immigrant figure could be as high as 30 million, not the more commonly reported 11-12 million figure. This gives us a range of about 3% to 9%. That is not a small number, and we can see why Democrats push for amnesty and eventual citizenship for them, or at least a way to get some of them to the polls. Kate Steinle is a minor bump in the road for their impending demographic takeover (famously celebrated in the book The Emerging Democratic Majority). Trump’s unorthodox electoral victory shows that they are very close as it is. What value is the life of some white girl in the face of all that?
Yes. Two can play the “you want people to die” game, Lefties.
If Trump puts up a wall before 2020, he’s going to be reelected in a landslide. If he fails, then expect the Democrats to push through amnesty as fast as they possibly can, to prevent the rise of anyone right-of-center ever again. After that, things are likely to get very dicey in America.
Meanwhile, a murderer will go free… and probably come back across the border soon enough.
