This morning, Jim Steinle, father of murdered American Kate Steinle, sat in front of congressional members in Washington D.C. and called on federal and local lawmakers to stop releasing illegal immigrants with criminal records.
The video below of Steinle’s opening statement was chilling and you couldn’t help be touched by his powerful emotional statement regarding his loss.
Steinle told the members of the Senate Judiciary Committee, he was at his daughter’s side July 1 when she was gunned down while walking along Pier 14 in San Francisco, allegedly by a habitual felon who was in the United States illegally.
The committee convened to talk about the country’s immigration policies, including the sanctuary city practice of releasing illegal immigrants with criminal records from jail without alerting federal authorities who could deport them.
