Since the killing of 32-year-old Kate Steinle in the sanctuary city of San Francisco earlier this year by a previously deported, seven-time felony illegal alien, sanctuary city policies have come under heavy scrutiny from the American public and Congress. Now, sanctuary cities have found another critic: Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson.
"It is counterproductive to public safety to have this level of resistance to working with our immigration enforcement personnel," Johnson said during a speech in San Francisco yesterday. "It is simply, in my judgement, not acceptable to have no policy of cooperation with immigration enforcement. We're all interested in getting criminals off the streets."
Great, but what will the federal government do about it? Considering the Obama White House has repeatedly failed to condemn sanctuary cities and repeatedly refused to address the Kate Steinle case directly, the answer is unfortunately nothing at all. In the past, Johnson has been hesitant to openly criticize sanctuary city policies and said in July during congressional testimony that the polices were out of the control of Homeland Security, but that he hopes local law enforcement will work with the feds to get violent criminals off the streets.
