Barletta: Sanctuary Cities to Blame for Kate Steinle Tragedy

WASHINGTON – Congressman Lou Barletta (PA-11) released the following statement after a San Francisco court reached a verdict regarding the murder of Kate Steinle.

“I am heartbroken for the Steinle family.  Garcia Zarate is an illegal immigrant felon, who was deported on five separate occasion.  This tragedy should never had happened.  Elected officials in Sanctuary Cities, and those that defend them in Congress, allowed for the death of Kate Steinle.  There should be no sanctuary for illegal activity in the United States, yet these officials continue to operate with complete disregard for public safety and the law.  They encourage crime to flood into their communities as gangs, drug dealers, and violent criminals find sanctuary policies a safe harbor from the law.  They put strain on the police and their lives in danger.  Everyone’s family is put at risk.”

“The Congress must move to prevent further deterioration of public safety and pass HR 83, Mobilizing Against Sanctuary Cities Act.  All Americans are at risk from sanctuary cities.  Congress must speak forcefully to the victims of these horrendous policies that the continued injustice of sanctuary cities will not go unanswered.”
