Report: San Francisco Progressive Sheriff Intentionally Sought Illegal Alien Murderer To Protect Him From Deportation…

Oh my !!

…”San Francisco Sheriff Ross Mirkarimi has deflected blame in the release of a Mexican national now facing murder charges in the Pier 14 slaying by demanding to know why federal authorities returned him to San Francisco to face a 20-year-old marijuana charge in the first place.

The answer, it turns out, is that the Sheriff’s Department asked federal officials to do so”… (link)

Chuck Ross has more…. (Via Daily Caller) A bitter dispute over who bears responsibility for the release of Juan Francisco Lopez-Sanchez, the five times-deported illegal alien who fatally shot Kathryn Steinle last week in San Francisco, has taken a surprise twist with the revelation that the San Francisco sheriff’s department asked the Federal Bureau of Prisons for custody of the 45-year-old Mexican national back in March.

The San Francisco Chronicle is reporting that the San Francisco sheriff’s department, which is headed by progressive sheriff Ross Mirkarimi, submitted a letter to the Bureau of Prisons on March 23 asking to be notified “when [Lopez-Sanchez is ready for our pick-up.”

Lopez-Sanchez was at the end of a 46-month sentence in a federal prison in Victorville, Cal. for felony illegal re-entry. But San Francisco had a $5,000 bench warrant from 1995 on Lopez-Sanchez for a marijuana possession for sale case, and the sheriff’s department sought to take custody of him.

“Also, please notify us if the hold cannot be placed or the named subject is released to another jurisdiction prior to our receipt,” an official with the sheriff’s warrant bureau requested in the letter to the Bureau of Prisons.  (read more)

So, in essence, the Sheriff asked ICE for Sanchez when his prison term was up; the feds obliged and turned him over.  The feds (ICE) said when you’re done with him return him to us for deportation; and the Sheriff said f**k you, and set him free.

    Sheriff Wife Beater got some splainin’ to do.

    “On March 26, the federal agency handed Lopez-Sanchez over to the sheriff’s department. The local agency took him into custody and cleared him of the marijuana charge the next day. On that same day, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) was notified electronically that Lopez-Sanchez, who had used more than 30 aliases since his first known entry into the U.S. in 1991, was in the sheriff’s custody. Seeking to deport Lopez-Sanchez for a sixth time, ICE filed a detainer request to be notified upon the seven-time felon’s release.

    But the sheriff’s department ignored that request because San Francisco is a sanctuary city. That means that local agencies are prohibited from aiding federal immigration agencies. Lopez-Sanchez was then released by the sheriff’s department on April 15. He shot the 32-year-old Steinle on July 1 while she was walking with her father and a friend on Pier 14.”

      hmmmm….

      Lopez-Sanchez arrived in San Francisco on March 26, and the marijuana case against him was discharged the following day. He was returned to jail, however.

      For the next three weeks, sources with knowledge of the matter told The Chronicle, sheriff’s deputies sought clarification from the department’s legal division on whether to hold onto Lopez-Sanchez so Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials could pick him up for possible deportation. ICE had requested that the city detain Lopez-Sanchez.

      Does discharged mean dismissed?

      So someone within the SF Sheriffs department went to considerable trouble to cause the Federal Bureau of Prisons to hand over Lopez-Sanchez to them, knowing full well they would drop the ancient marijuana case and let him loose. This demands a complete investigation by both b an independent LE agency and prosecutor, and by attorneys representing the victim’s survivors in a mega-lawsuit. It is not conceivable that this was an accident.
      Wouldn’t it be interesting to know:
      Who DIRECTED that this happen?
      Who CARRIED OUT hat direction (this required considerable legal and bureaucratic effort)? What are their names?
      Who KNEW it happened?
      Was this a unique circumstance, or is SF doing this repeatedly?
      How many other cases just like it have happened?

              he found sleeping pills in a dumpster ?
              how did this person who can not understand English know that whatever he “found in a dumpster”, allegedly, were “sleeping pills” ?
              did he read it on the prescription label ?
              did anyone actually see him firing the gun that shot & killed Kate ?
              has the gun found in the bay matched the ballistics of the bullet(s) that killed her ?
              so…he finds sleeping pills in a dumpster, then finds a gun wrapped in something ..whatever it was..fires it at seals? accidently? (he’s said both)…then he kicks gun into the bay.
              gun found in bay is gun stolen weeks before out of agent’s car….then left by someone under a bench.
              something way wrong with that picture.

    I’m not really good at this, but here’s my take. What if the sheriff is in league with the drug smugglers and this guy actually is “someone” connected with the cartels, etc. For some reason they wanted him back out on the street and this just got all screwed up? Anyway, I don’t think this has a simple explanation. I don’t believe it is just because San Fran is a sanctuary city.

Sure, I realize that even the federal Pens have organized gangs, but I believe he would have been “out of touch” with what was happening on the streets. And the fact that he served 46 months in the first place makes me think that any “connections” he might have had (if any) were very weak ones, at best.

        Possession of marijuana for sale… the guy would be a low level street retailer. The cartel wouldn’t know he existed. The only person who missed him was probably his low-level connection, and he’d have replaced him with another “sanctuary seeker” within a day or two. Nah, just a grafter. The whole tale is told by his claim to have been buzzed on “found” sleeping pills.

      Was thinking exactly the same thing. Two other details that gave me the impression there may be something more sinister going on:

      The chief public defender representing Lopez-Sanchez, Matt Gonzalez, has close ties to Mirkarimi – Mirkarimi was Gonzalez’s spokesperson when Gonzalez unsuccessfully ran for mayor in ’03
      According to the SF Chronicle, after Mirkarimi found out some of the deputies in his office had been cooperating with ICE on the side, he sent a department wide memo demanding they cease all cooperation and that he was now the only one permitted to handle ICE matters… and that memo just so happened to go out in March… right around the time the sheriff requested that Lopez-Sanchez be transferred up to SF.

  15. It seems that this Progressive Sheriff doesn’t have a clue as to what is going on in his own agency. That, or he is using the age old Progressive tactics of obfuscation and bloviation to throw the hounds off of the scent. Any fool can see that this isn’t going to be swept under the rug, and that – sooner rather than later – the “officials” of the City of San Francisco will have to offer up a sacrificial lamb to appease the masses (similar to the manner in which Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake offered Anthony Batts up as a “go to” scapegoat).

    Now, in light of their exposure as a “Sanctuary City”, and the revelation that there seem to be somewhere around 300 “Sanctuary Cities” in the US, I am compelled to ask:

    How did SF, or any other US city become designated as such? For all I can see (correct me if I am wrong) this is something that was done individually, at the local levels. But 300?? Doesn’t that (unverified) number suggest that there was a broader, nationwide movement in play? Regardless of that possibility, I also have to remark that none of this happened in a vacuum. That is to say, certainly there were both State AND Federal officials who were aware of actions taken to establish these cities and “Sanctuaries”.and either turned a blind eye, or came out in support of those efforts.

    Which brings me to my final observations, and questions.

    In another thread someone linked a transcript of a recent Rush Limbaugh broadcast in which he (accurately) applauded Donald Trump for “changing the National Discussion of Immigration” with his comments about the true nature of many of the illegal immigrants. Limbaugh went on to comment that Trump’s comments had forced several Dems (he mentioned Diane Feinstein by name) to come out in opposition to, or condemning, the policies of “Sanctuary”.

    That’s all well and good, if those protestations are sincere and come from positions of “Shocked Surprise.”

    But, if what I suspect is true, many of those same Dems who now condemn the circumstances that led to Kate Steinle’s murder )more than likely) had full knowledge of “Sanctuary City” policies, and probably even actively supported the establishment of them.

    So, has anyone “Dove Deep” into the records of… say… Diane Feinstein… to determine what, if any, culpability she might have in this fiasco? I’m thinking her recent condemnation of SF’s “Sanctuary City” policies is as disingenuous as they come…

      It was the corrupt influence of open borders that prompted President Eisenhower to act…

      “Years later, the late Herbert Brownell Jr., Eisenhower’s first attorney general, said in an interview with this writer that the president had a sense of urgency about illegal immigration when he took office.

      America “was faced with a breakdown in law enforcement on a very large scale,” Mr. Brownell said. “When I say large scale, I mean hundreds of thousands were coming in from Mexico [every year] without restraint.”

      Although an on-and-off guest-worker program for Mexicans was operating at the time, farmers and ranchers in the Southwest had become dependent on an additional low-cost, docile, illegal labor force of up to 3 million, mostly Mexican, laborers.

      According to the Handbook of Texas Online, published by the University of Texas at Austin and the Texas State Historical Association, this illegal workforce had a severe impact on the wages of ordinary working Americans. The Handbook Online reports that a study by the President’s Commission on Migratory Labor in Texas in 1950 found that cotton growers in the Rio Grande Valley, where most illegal aliens in Texas worked, paid wages that were “approximately half” the farm wages paid elsewhere in the state.

      Profits from illegal labor led to the kind of corruption that apparently worried Eisenhower. Joseph White, a retired 21-year veteran of the Border Patrol, says that in the early 1950s, some senior US officials overseeing immigration enforcement “had friends among the ranchers,” and agents “did not dare” arrest their illegal workers.”

    Bang this latest revelation against the Sheriff’s earlier statements regarding the city policy and his allegations of ICS ‘mishandling’ of these cases and the ‘Sheriff’s Tale’ devolves to a ‘war story’ ! Sadly, this story line is becoming all too common across the nation. But letting the ‘sunshine in’ will have, I believe, a salubrious effect; but perhaps not the one many anticipate. Rope may become scarce and vacant poles and trees rare before the bedrock bureaucratic and political problems this nation is enduring right now are resolved.
