Democrats and the mainstream media made a big deal about the man who attacked Paul Pelosi in his mouth. They even tried to use the incident as grounds for attacking Republicans–even though the man was a known leftist and a visa overstay from Canada.
It seems the left’s inability to enforce immigration law led to this horrible attack in the first place. But now, Democrats’ ongoing support for policies that violate federal law could prevent the Pelosis from getting justice. Because San Francisco is actually protecting this attacker, thanks to its “sanctuary” law.
From The Post Millennial:
San Francisco District Attorney Brooke Jenkins said Thursday that she will refuse to turn the suspect over to ICE officials citing the San Francisco’s sanctuary city policies which ban departments and officials from assisting immigration officers with detentions or deportations…
Jenkins said in a statement hours after US Immigration and Customs Enforcement publicly disclosed the hold on David DePape, “San Francisco is a sanctuary city and our policy is sacred.”
She added, “We will not be collaborating or coordinating with ICE.”
How idiotic is this? DePape is a violent criminal who could have killed 82-year-old Paul Pelosi. The odd circumstances surrounding the incident aside, the Pelosi family deserves justice for this crime.
Yet the very policies Nancy Pelosi has strongly, and vocally, supported are shielding this man from justice. As a visa overstay, DePape should be handed over to ICE for possible deportation. That doesn’t mean he won’t face trial for his assault. It simply means ICE has jurisdiction and should be the agency leading this case.
Instead, the San Francisco District Attorney Brooke Jenkins is protecting this attacker from federal law enforcement. How hilarious is that? Democrats are so in love with their sanctuary policies, that they’d help out a man who tried to kill one of their own.
You’d think the Pelosis would have something to say about that, but they are oddly quiet. It is in their best interests that this man was deported. Considering the conflicting reports we’ve heard about this incident, they probably don’t want DePape standing trial and testifying under oath.
But what do we know? Democrats know what they are doing when they shield illegal immigrants from deportation, right?
- San Francisco will not hand Paul Pelosi’s attacker to the federal government, thanks to its sanctuary laws.
- DePape is a visa overstay, so by federal law, he must be handed over to ICE.
- Democrats’ own support for illegal immigration is now biting them in the butt.
