July 1, 2015 will forever be etched as the saddest day in the lives of the Steinle family, as their much loved daughter, Kate, died in the arms of her father on San Francisco’s Pier 14, her life forever stolen by a 7-time illegal alien felon and 5-time deportee, who should never have been in our country.
This verdict provides the Steinle family with no measure of justice for this senseless killing, and for whom San Francisco’s Sanctuary City mayor and council refuse to have any real compassion. Sadly, all Stolen Lives Families have experienced similar anguish and inconsolable loss, all reaching the horrifying reality of the direct roll played by the failure of our federal government to enforce the border, and now sanctuary cities have become fully culpable in these killings. Unfortunately, this trial took place inside the sanctuary city of San Francisco, and whose outcome was determined by a jury from the very same populace who voted into office persons who value the lives of illegal aliens over the lives of Americans. The memory of Kate, her family and all of Americans deserve better.
Earlier this month, at the National Remembrance Conference in Washington, DC, all attending Stolen Lives Families expressed their universal support President Donald Trump in his efforts to keep his promise to our families to secure the border and enforce our interior laws. Many of these families previously stood on stage with Trump wearing The Remembrance Project Stolen Lives shirts and courageously told their stories.
This unfair verdict will not end today. We continue to pray for the Steinles, and for all American families, and will continue our efforts at The Remembrance Project to help bring an end to these senseless killings.
