Senator Rand Paul has chimed in on “sanctuary cities” in light of the recent fatal shooting of Kathryn Steinle in San Francisco. The city, which has become notorious for not detaining illegal immigrants, had released the shooter, Juan Francisco Lopez-Sanchez, in spite of the fact that he was wanted by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement on a drug-related warrant.
Appearing on the Laura Ingraham Show this morning, Paul said the following:
“Conservatives say we believe in the rule of law, and the beginning of the rule of law is enforcing the law. Since 1986, there was a promise we would enforce the law on border security. We’ve done squat. We’ve done nothing… Eleven million people have crossed over illegally. So, the first thing we have to do is enforce the law.”
He went on to call out both parties and the current administration for failing to do their jobs.
