Who is Kate Steinle?
Seems like a pretty simple question, but it was a question that none of the participants at a rally calling for amnesty for illegal immigrants could answer. The rally was held at the University of Colorado at Boulder last week to protest last Wednesday's GOP presidential debate that was being held mere hours later.
Once the event organizers caught onto the fact that MRCTV was asking about Steinle, they insisted that we leave the "public event." As the video shows, the organizers admitted that the reason we were being asked to leave was specifically because they didn't like the questions we were asking.
Kate Steinle was the young woman who was murdered last summer by Francisco Sanchez, an illegal immigrant felon who had been released from prison by authorities in the City of San Francisco. San Francisco authorities released Sanchez despite requests by the federal government that he be detained for deportation. Following his release, Sanchez murdered 32-year old Steinle.
Following the tragedy and the subsequent uproar from some in the media, the House of Representatives passed "Kate's Law," which would block states and cities from receiving federal law enforcement funding if they refused to cooperate with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) due to that state or city's "sanctuary city" policies.
