Trump slams Democrats over Kate Steinle case, urging need for border wall
    President Trump on Friday slammed the verdict in the Kate Steinle case, blamed Democrats and argued that his border wall is a priority now more than ever.
    "The Kate Steinle killer came back and back over the weakly protected Obama border, always committing crimes and being violent, and yet this info was not used in court. His exoneration is a complete travesty of justice. BUILD THE WALL!" Mr. Trumptweeted.
    “The jury was not told the killer of Kate was a 7 time felon. The Schumer/Pelosi Democrats are so weak on Crime that they will pay a big price in the 2018 and 2020 Elections,” he added.
    On Thursday, a California jury acquitted the illegal immigrant who killed Ms. Steinle while on a walk with her father on the San Francisco pier in 2015.
    Jose Ines Garcia Zarate, 54, had admitted to fatally shooting Ms. Steinle but said it was an accident. He was found guilty of lesser gun charges in a case.

What media won't tell you: I was right about the sanctuary city movement all along   
    
The sanctuary city idea was born in in 1979 Los Angeles with Special Order 40.
    In 1992, I formed a group called Voice of Citizens Together (VCT) that held rallies and campaigned to enforce our immigration laws. As a leader in the movement to fight illegal immigration, I saw the threat that Special Order 40 was to the rule of law, and it soon became one of my organization's targets for activism.
    During the 1993 Los Angeles Mayoral election campaign, we were promised by candidate Riordan that he would work to rescind Special Order 40.
    When he didn't, I sent him this letter.
    We continued to campaign against Special Order 40, and, in 2000, I urged the citizens of Long Island about standing up for their rights.
    
Had there been citizens with "Long Island backbone" in 1979 Los Angeles, I am convinced we would not have the crisis of illegal immigration now facing President Bush.

    VCT had campaigned against Special Order 40 for eight years in California --- with no success.
    Our last effort was a 2001 demonstration at Los Angeles City Hall to protest a vote by the city council to renew Special Order 40.
    Two people rose to oppose Special Order 40 at that meeting of the Los Angeles City Council --- Glenn Spencer, and Hal Netkin.
    My final statement to the Los Angeles City Council was this:
    
"If you approve Special Order 40, the headquarters of the decline and fall of America will be firmly establish in the council chambers of Los Angeles." 
    The council approved Special Order 40, and it wasn't long thereafter that I decided to leave California and take the fight to the border in Arizona.
    For the past twenty four years I have been right about the danger of the sanctuary city movement to the rule of law --- but the mainstream media don't want you to be reminded of that fact.
