Today we celebrate America’s independence from England. And what is more American to talk about than illegal immigration? It’s a topic we’ve never blogged about here on before because we don’t wanna turn Turtleboy into FoxNews, but we found a story in California that needed to be discussed.
NY Daily News: A California woman was randomly attacked and killed in front of her father on a popular San Francisco pier Wednesday by a man who was mistakenly released from jail, officials said.
Kate Steinle, 32, was walking with her dad on Pier 14 on the Embarcadero when she was shot in the chest and fell to the ground at about 6:30 p.m., police said. She later died at a hospital.
“She just kept saying, ‘Dad, help me, help me,”’ her mother Liz Sullivan told the San Francisco Chronicle. “She fought for her life.I don’t think I’ve totally grasped it.”
Steinle’s shooter, 45-year-old Francisco Sanchez, fled as witnesses snapped pictures, police said.
The man, who is an undocumented immigrant, was jailed four months ago for illegally selling marijuana and should have been sent to federal immigration officials instead of being set free,a Department of Homeland Security official told NBC.
Sanchez was an “enforcement priority,” the news station reported. He should have taken to Immigration and Custom Enforcement instead of being released from San Francisco County Jail.
Sanchez has been deported to Mexico five times, most recently in 2009, ICE spokeswomanVirginia Kice told the Daily News.
His long criminal history includes seven prior felony convictions, four involving narcotics charges.
The murder suspect was supposed to be sent to federal immigration officials after serving a multi-year federal prison stint for felony re-entry after deportation in March, Kice said.
He was instead released from San Francisco jail, and ICE was not notified.
Sanchez, who was charged with homicide Thursday and out on bond in Texas, did not speak to his victim before firing and does not appear to have a connection to her, police said.
So obviously this Turtleboy’s knee jerk reaction to this was the same as Donald Trump’s:
But the more I thought about, the more I realized that it’s not fair to blame this one on illegal immigration. This one’s primarily the fault of gross incompetence by federal immigration authorities. I mean, you had ONE FUCKING JOB after this guy got out of prison. Put him on a train to Tijuana. But somehow, somewhere, some overpaid incompetent boob tried to break his own record in minesweeper instead.
Look, for months we’ve been saying now that you don’t judge a group of people based on the actions of a few knuckleheads. When Dylan Roof shot up that church in Charleston it would’ve been pretty fucked up for someone to say, “We gotta do something about all these crazy white folk.” Same thing applies here. This guy killed that woman because he was a piece of shit animal savage.
Same thing applies here. There’s millions of undocumented immigrants walking the streets of America. They’re watering our lawns, trimming our bushes, and generally doing shit that no American with a Social Security card would ever wanna do. If you find a way to sneak into this country, and you work your ass off, learn the language, and don’t ask for handouts, then you’re automatically a better person than 90% of people who were lucky enough to be born here. And I say, more power to ya.
Are there illegal immigrants abusing the system? Of course there are. But I got a newsflash for ya – for every illegal immigrant abusing welfare there’s ten more blue-blooded Americans who are doing the exact same thing. As a matter of fact, here’s a chart from the Department of Agriculture showing the racial breakdown of welfare recipients in America:
So for every asshole illegal immigrant out there who is ripping off the system, there are ten dooshnozzles from Kentucky waving American flags, telling immigrants to go back to where they came from, and cashing in their EBT cards for scratch tickets.
And another thing I hear a lot is “they should’ve come here legally like my ancestors did.” Newsflash – when my ancestors came to America it was literally a jailbreak. Anyone with a nickel could jump in steerage and come to America. The only rule was that you couldn’t have cholera or one of the other diseases that kills Susanna on Oregon Trail. If it were as hard to get into America 125 years ago as it is today, I would pray to God that my ancestors would be crafty enough to find a way to sneak into this beautiful, amazing country that we get to call home now.
Look, I understand that America can’t be a free for all. We need border patrol and active enforcement so we know exactly who is coming into the country. But with that said, we’ve got some pretty big ass borders in this country, and some people are gonna get through. You’re far less likely to be killed by an illegal immigrant than you are a native born American citizen. That’s just a fact.
I just think it’s funny when Massholes whine about illegal immigration too. Newsflash – those people standing in front of you at the DMV speaking spanish aren’t Mexican – they’re Puerto Rican. And Puerto Ricans are born as American citizens because it’s a territory of the USA. Got a problem with that? Talk to President McKinley.
Massachusetts has one of the smallest illegal immigrant populations in America, despite being what is basically the ideal place to settle if you are undocumented, as our state gives out free shit to anyone who puts their hand out. So when I see people here get all fired up about it, I just kind of laugh because it basically doesn’t affect you at all. I mean, I can understand if you live in Arizona or California, or some state that actually has a real problem with illegal immigration. But if you live in Massachusetts and you’re whining about how it’s affecting your life, just stop. Because it literally doesn’t affect you at all.
Sure there are instances like the piece of shit illegal immigrant who killed that woman in Milford a few years back. But there are literally hundreds of legally born citizens in Massachusetts who kill innocent people while driving under the influence every single year. I don’t blame America for that. I blame the people who got behind the wheel, just as I don’t blame ALL illegal immigrants for something one illegal immigrant did.
The last thing I’m gonna say is this. Everyone’s always talking about how nice the Bay area of California is. But in Boston we don’t have innocent women being shot for no reason on Storrow Drive. And we certainly don’t have reporters being robbed in broad daylight while reporting on senseless murders like this. Because that actually happened yesterday:
Look, I understand that the majority of people reading this probably have different opinions when it comes to illegal immigration. But that’s why you come to Turtleboy Sports – to listen to someone who isn’t afraid to rant about something that not everyone else agrees with. In conclusion, California is fucked.
