(National Sentinel)Â Immigration: As the Trump administration continues to weigh options for punishing cities that have adopted so-called “sanctuary” policies for illegal aliens, Attorney General Jeff Sessions told a group of local law enforcement officials Thursday such policies actuallyÂ attract the most dangerous criminal aliens.
In placing blame where it belonged — not on cops but on the idiot Leftists who run such cities — Sessions noted those policies make communities less safe,Â BreitbartÂ TexasÂ reported.
â€œWhen cities like Philadelphia, Boston or San Francisco advertise that they have these policies, the criminals take notice,â€ AG Sessions told the police officers gathered at a Las Vegas conference center. â€œAccording to a recent study from the University of California Riverside, cities with these policies have more violent crime on average than those that donâ€™t.â€
As in the past, Sessions pointed to the case of San Francisco resident Kate Steinle, who was murdered in 2015 by a repeat illegal border jumper from Mexico whom the sheriff’s department hadÂ let go due to the city’s sanctuary policy.
â€œWe all know the story of Kate Steinle, who was murdered in cold blood two years ago this month,â€ Sessions stated. â€œShe was walking a pier in San Francisco with her father when an illegal alienâ€”who had been deported five times and committed seven feloniesâ€”shot her in the back.â€
â€œHer death was preventableâ€”and it should have been prevented. She would still be alive today if her killer had been imprisoned or deported, as he should have been,â€ he said.
He laid her murder directly on the Democrats who run San Fran.
â€œHe walked the streets freely because San Francisco refuses to cooperate with ICE, the AG explained. â€œIn fact, he admitted that one reason he was in San Francisco that day was that he knew the city had these policies in place.â€
Sessions also told the gathered officers they are not to blame for such senseless stupidity, but rather, he the politicians that keep them from doing their jobs are responsible. â€œI know that you want to help,â€ he said. â€œThe problem is that politicians have forbidden you to help. That makes all of usâ€”and especially police officers on the front linesâ€”less safe.â€
