Kate Steinle became a household name in 2015 after the 32-year old was shot and killed by an illegal immigrant in San Francisco. It was a horrific event that shined light on some serious flaws in our Nation’s immigration system.

The man who killed her, Juan Francisco Lopez-Sanchez, was in our country illegally. Making matters worse, he had already been deported five times and had been convicted of seven felonies. He had no business being in the United States.

Shelby and Brooks Remember Kate Steinle

Friday, July 1, marked the one year anniversary of the death of innocent 32-year-old Kathryn Steinle, who was shot by a criminal illegal alien and died in her father’s arms on a San Francisco street.

The often arrested, often deported killer, Juan Francisco Lopez-Sanchez had most recently been a guest of the San Francisco Sheriff’s Department jail; but when his latest jail time was up the San Francisco authorities released him to the streets without phoning the Immigrations Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents to deport the professional criminal. San Francisco is a sanctuary city and refuses to help deport even the most dangerous of criminal illegal aliens back to their home countries. Once on the loose, the felon stole a firearm from a Federal Bureau of Land Management (BLM) agent’s vehicle and then shot Steinle. The brutal assassination sparked national outrage. Donald Trump seized on the event to leap into the lead in a crowded GOP field. Both US Senator Richard Shelby (R-Alabama) and US Representative Mo Brooks (R-Huntsville) released statements on the anniversary of Steinle’s murder.
