Kate Steinle: Murdered by an illegal alien in sanctuary San Francisco

Remember this:

The government FAILED Kate, just like every single government agency failed Parkland students.

The government has FAILED those who live in strict gun-controlled Baltimore:

The government has FAILED those who live in strict gun-controlled Chiraq:

#MarchForOurLives: Why have you “cover stars” been silent in raising the voice for the victims of gun violence in Baltimore and Chiraq?

Why have you been silent in the death of Kate Steinle? Kate was an AMERICAN CITIZEN killed by an illegal alien enabled by the government’s actions.

Blame the NRA all you want. Doesn’t change the facts that 1) criminals don’t follow the laws, 2) government agencies may fail to protect citizens, 3) when seconds count the police are minutes away (and even if they are on site they still may cower) 4) police do not have a Constitutional duty to protect you and 5) because of reason number 3 we need the Second Amendment for self defense.

Remember Kate Steinle today.

Illegal aliens, who dodged ICE raid after demorat mayor’s warning, re-arrested for new crimes

libby schaaf

SHAME on you Libby Schaaf.

From Fox News: Three illegal immigrants aliens, who avoided capture after Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf blew the whistle on a raid by federal immigration authorities last month, have since been re-arrested for new crimes including robbery and spousal abuse, ICE officials said.

Schaaf tweeted out a warning ahead of the raid in northern California last month, infuriating Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials and the Trump administration.

“How dare you!” Attorney General Jeff Sessions said in California this month, addressing Schaaf. “How dare you needlessly endanger the lives of our law enforcement officers to promote a radical, open borders agenda.”

ICE officials eventually caught 232 illegal immigrants aliens, many of them criminals, in the four-day sweep but said that hundreds more escaped because of Schaaf’s warning.

But on Tuesday, officials said that at least three of those who were targeted in the raid, but were not apprehended, had since been arrested for additional crimes.

One was a Mexican national arrested for robbery and gun crimes, who was released back into the community for a prior offense despite an ICE detainer request in November.

Another Mexican national was arrested for a DUI, despite having been deported three times and prior convictions for false imprisonment, DUI and battery of a spouse.

The third was a Mexican national who was arrested for corporal injury of a spouse, despite being deported twice and criminal convictions including drug possession, hit-and-run, DUIs, possessions of narcotics equipment and a parole violation.

Acting ICE Director Tom Homan mentioned the three cases at a roundtable on sanctuary cities at the White House on Tuesday. He also expressed frustration at the mixed messages coming from politicians in sanctuary states.

“We are told on one hand to focus efforts on criminals but those same folks who want to focus on criminals don’t let us into the county jails,” he said. “It just defies logic.”

While Homan has blamed Schaaf’s actions for the escape of as many as 800 illegal immigrants, it is unclear exactly how many evaded capture directly because of her actions. A DHS official told The New York Times that ICE agents typically find only about 30 percent of their targets during a sweep, meaning that many of those who evaded capture may not have been caught either way.

Schaaf has stood by her actions, saying the community is safer because of sanctuary city policies.

“I do not regret sharing this information,” she said last month. “It is Oakland’s legal right to be a sanctuary city and we have not broken any laws. We believe our community is safer when families stay together.

Last week an Oakland community organizer told Fox News that she was being supported by members of the community. “People are really supportive of her because she took a stand,” Emma Paulino said. “She is serving the people who elected her.”

The Justice Department, which is also suing California over its sanctuary city policies, has said it is reviewing Schaaf’s actions, but has yet to make an announcement.

Arnold Schwarzenegger wants to sue big oil for “knowingly killing people”

arnold schwarzenegger2

Arnold not too concerned that his private jet flying habit contributes to killing you through global warming

Since I’ve never been on a private jet, I wonder if the hypocrite Arnold can tell me where he suggests the “warning labels’ be located…

From SF Gate: Arnold Schwarzenegger has four words for the oil industry, and they’re not quite, “Hasta la vista, baby,” but they’re close: “See you in court.”

Action-movie star and former California Gov. Schwarzenegger told Politico in a podcast Sunday that he’s planning legal action against oil companies for “knowingly killing people all over the world.”

While Schwarzenegger did not have a concrete timetable for the legal action, he said that he’s spoken to a number of law firms about the prospect.

“This is no different from the smoking issue. The tobacco industry knew for years and years and years and decades, that smoking would kill people, would harm people and create cancer, and were hiding that fact from the people and denied it. Then eventually they were taken to court and had to pay hundreds of millions of dollars because of that,” Schwarzenegger said. “The oil companies knew from 1959 on, they did their own study that there would be global warming happening because of fossil fuels, and on top of it that it would be risky for people’s lives, that it would kill.”

While the actor-turned-politician was short on details about the potential filing, he said, “We’re going to go after them, and we’re going to be in there like an Alabama tick. Because to me, it’s absolutely irresponsible to know that your product is killing people and not have a warning label on it, like tobacco…Every gas station on it, every car should have a warning label on it, every product that has fossil fuels should have a warning label on it.”

Schwarzenegger was an advocate for environmentalism during his tenure as governor, signing the Global Warming Solutions Act of 2006, and has continued to tout environmental efforts since leaving office in January 2011.

Sanctuary California: Illegal alien who killed 6-year-old was previously deported twice and arrested for DUI

Grace Aguilar killed by illegal

It’s not fair: Grace Aguilar taken from her parents.

The federal government ought to do its job and not blame California.

Tell me Jerry Brown, Nancy Pelosi, Kamala Harris and Libby Schaaf: Who is to blame now? The death of this little angel means nothing to you? NOTHING?

Apparently the last words of Kate Steinle meant nothing to you.

Why I’m so mad:

You politicians who support the sanctuary status in your state, and the voters who support you, make me sick.

Shame on the California politicians who shelter and protect illegals who kill American citizens. Shame on you!

From NBC Los Angeles: Angela Aguilar had just gone back inside her Fullerton home to cook. She thought her 6-year-old daughter, Grace, was also inside.

Grace Aguilar, though, was in the front yard, where she had gone to sit by her favorite tree. Angela Aguilar heard the crash, but she didn’t realize that an out-of-control driver had struck her daughter.

Grace Aguilar died in that Feb. 17 crash, which police say was caused by a drunk driver, and now her parents can only look back on a young life that had filled theirs with so much joy.

“For something so stupid to happen in a second, just to have (your child) taken away from you, it’s not fair,” Angela Aguilar said. “It’s not fair.”

Immigration officials say 50-year-old Maximino Delgado Lagunas, who is in the United States illegally, had a blood alcohol level nearly three times the legal limit when he was arrested. Immigration and Customs Enforcement has revealed to NBC4 that Lagunas, a Mexican national, had been deported twice, once in 2001 and again in 2008.

Court records show that in 2015 he was arrested for another DUI. Immigration officials say that back then Buena Park police did not detain Lagunas for the required 48 hours for pickup  by immigration officials, instead placing him on informal probation and releasing him to the streets.

Angela and Jesus Aguilar say it took them eight years to have a child. Now they can only mourn their daughter after Lagunas’ actions.

The girl’s parents say their daughter was friendly and mature. She loved people, nature and God. Her father remembers her hugs and her smiles. Her mother remembers the sound of her voice. “She had this beautiful laugh,” Angela Aguilar said. “I still hear it in my head every day.”

Lagunas could now face a possible murder charge.

“He’s taken away from me the best thing I had in life,” Jesus Aguilar said.

For their “emotional safety,” Oakland coffee shop won’t serve cops

hasa muerte coffee shop

I’m guessing first time the coffee shop is robbed they are going to call the “community” to solve the crime. Good luck with that approach.

From Daily Mail: A California coffee shop is standing up to police brutality by refusing to serve officers.

Hasta Muerte – which translates from Spanish to ‘until death’ – turned away an Oakland police officer a few weeks ago sparking a debate within the community, NBC Bay Area reports. The sergeant said he was surprised that employees refused to serve him, but he left the shop without any incident.

Apparently, the sergeant posted about his experience at Hasta Muerte which led to the employee-owned coffee shop, which opened last November, to defend its decision to turn away cops. 

Cop supporters are trying to publicly shame us online with low reviews because this particular police visitor was Latino. He broadcasted to his network that he was “refused service” at a local business and now the rumblings are spreading,’ an Instagram post read. ‘We know in our experience working on campaigns against police brutality that we are not alone saying that police presence compromises our feeling of physical & emotional safety.’ 

The lengthy caption was written below a photo with writing in Spanish that says: ‘Talk to your neighbors, not the police’. 

The post also included Facebook and Yelp reviews from people criticizing them for turning away the officer, who is the president of the Latino Police Officers Association of Alameda County. The coffee shop scrawled the words ‘Not my president’ and ‘sorry not sorry’ across the images of the complaints. 

Below the pictures, the post went on to say:

OPDs recent attempts to enlist officers of color and its short term touting of fewer officer involved shootings does not reverse or mend its history of corruption, mismanagement, and scandal, nor a legacy of blatant repression. The facts are that poc (people of color), women, and queer police are complicit in upholding the same law and order that routinely criminalizes and terrorizes black and brown and poor folks, especially youth, trans, and houseless folks.’

‘For these reasons and so many more, we need the support of the actual community to keep this place safe, not police,’ the shop wrote.

Following the incident, the Oakland Police Officers Association sent a letter to the coffee shop expressing a desire to speak about their policy. The association has yet to receive a response from the owners, ABC reports.

Of course: Sex shop could be coming to SFO so people can enjoy their hours-long delays

Judge Judy shakes head rolls eyes

Makes perfect sense that this would occur San Francisco.

From Fox News: A “pop-up” sex shop may be coming to California’s San Francisco International Airport this month.

Nenna Joiner, owner of Oakland’s Feelmore Adult Gallery, is proposing the adult store as an outlet for guests who have “three of four hours to kill.”

“When people get into an airport, and the plane is delayed, you got three or four hours to kill,” Joiner reportedly told the San Francisco Chronicle. “You’re going to need something. Not just a power cord – not just a sandwich. You’re going to need a vibrator, a condom, lubricant.”

Joiner says the shop would be discreet and would oblige by the Transportation Safety Administration’s laws by not offering any banned item like ropes or handcuffs, ABC7 reported.

“We have already started to work to make sure that people wouldn’t be offended, through high-end vibrators that don’t look like vibrators, and that don’t have disparaging detail on the boxes,” Joiner told the Chronicle. “That (the products) support any person regardless of gender, sex, or color.”

Joiner is lobbying for one of two spaces available in SFO for March.

However, the small business may not be able to operate in the space – not because of morality, because of size.

According to airport regulations, prospective retailers must produce at least $250,000 in annual revenue to ensure “the retailer has a sufficient level of business activity and can operate in a high-volume airport environment,” airport marketing manager Grier Matthews said in a statement.

Joiner has reached out to the airport commission to lower the requirement to $150,000, but there has been no report that the airport has agreed to the reduction. “It’s not to say I’m not looking for a handout, but it’s also looking for evening the playing field,” Joiner told KGO.

The San Francisco International Airport served a record 55.8 million passengers in 2017, according to a press release.

Illegal alien used fake identity for 37 years to steal $361,000 in government benefits

nancy-pelosi

Liberals and their sanctuary policies enabled this fraud. Shameful.

From Fox News: A Mexican national has confessed to stealing the identity of an American citizen, and over the course of 37 years pocketing hundreds of thousands of dollars in government benefits.

Andres Avelino Anduaga, 66 – who hails from Tijuana, Mexico – admitted in San Diego federal court on Thursday that he assumed the fake identity of a Texas resident named Abraham Riojos in 1980 after obtaining a fraudulent birth certificate, and then successfully applied for a California driver’s license, Social Security number and passport.

From 1989 to 2016, according to the plea agreement, he received around $361,000 in benefits — which included Medi-Cal, food stamps and Supplemental Security Income benefits.

The fake identity also enabled Anduaga – identified as an illegal immigrant and repeat felon – to go back-and-forth without restriction between Mexico and the United States, which he was alleged to have been doing multiple times per week.

”The programs that this defendant stole from – for decades – provide benefits to America’s most needy. This prosecution demonstrates the commitment of the United States Attorney’s Office to protecting the integrity of our welfare programs and punishing those who prey on the goodwill of our nation and its taxpayers,” stated U.S Attorney Adam Braverman.

Investigators also located the real Abraham Riojos, now residing in Florida, who said he had no indication that his identity had deceitfully been used for so long. Authorities have not made clear how Anduaga feigned the identity, but it is believed the two did not know each other and never made contact.

Anduaga is required to pay back the full amount of government funds he fraudulently received, and faces twelve years behind bars and additional fines.

Sentencing is slated for May 29.
