The family of Katie Steinle who was brutally murdered along a popular dock in San Francisco has filed a wrongful death lawsuit against San Francisco Sheriff Ross Mirkarimi, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement and the Bureau of Land Management.
In my opinion, the person most responsible in Steinle’s death is Mirkarimi.
ICE was holding the illegal alien and had plans to deport Francisco Lopez Sanchez. Mirkarimi then asked ICE for Sanchez, using a warrant that was badly outdated, so much so that it was 13 years past the statute of limitations.
San Francisco is a sanctuary city and Mirkarimi is a leading proponent of that policy. It seems almost obvious that the only reason Mirkarimi requested Sanchez was for the purpose of saving him from deportation.
I would even suggest that he should be held criminally responsible as well as civilly responsible for the death of Katie Steinle.
