The setting is San Francisco, California.
Kate Steinle, an American citizen, is dead, and the illegal immigrant who killed her was acquitted of the charge yesterday, even after he admitted to doing it.
Many Americans are blaming California for creating the environment in which Steinle’s killer could thrive. Rightly so, considering the Golden State spends $23 billion on illegal immigration per year -- twice as much as the next closest state, and half the amount of the entire federal government, according to the Washington Examiner. All this, while still receiving about $368 billion from the federal government every single year.
In fact, of the combined $89 billion that America's state governments spent on illegal aliens per year, California makes up nearly a third all by itself.
The Examiner also linked to a the website Howmuch.net’s data breakdown of the states that pay the most to care for illegals. California pays substantially more than Texas and New York combined.
Twitter users are responding accordingly:
Millions of California voters backed Donald Trump for president. We won’t stand by and watch our great Republic of California be taken over by the lawless and illegals.— HANDS OFF MY CALI🇺🇸 (@WAGNERGIRLE) December 1, 2017
I fully support boycotting all Sanctuary Cities, starting with San Francisco. #BoycottSanFrancisco #KatesWall

I understand a jury trial is supposed to consist of your peers. Did they get 12 illegal aliens to come back with this BS not guilty verdict for #KateSteinle killer?— 🎙Wayne Dupree (@WayneDupreeShow) December 1, 2017
The dude confessed too! #KatesLaw #RealTalk
San Francisco failed Kate Steinle twice:— The Columbia Bugle (@ColumbiaBugle) December 1, 2017
1: They protected the illegal immigrant who went on to kill her.
2: They allowed the illegal immigrant who killed her to get away with murder without any punishment.
Americans are not safe in San Francisco. #BoycottSanFrancisco
