In 2015 the U.S. House of Representatives introduced the Establishing Mandatory Minimums for Illegal Reentry Act of 2015 (Kate’s Law.) The law was introduced after San Francisco 32 year old San Francisco resident Kathryn Steinle was shot and killed by Juan Francisco Lopez-Sanchez on July 1, 2015. Lopez-Sanchez was an illegal immigrant from Mexico who had been deported on five separate occasions since 1991 and been charged with seven felony convictions. Since 1991 Lopez-Sanchez had been charged with seven felony convictions and deported five times by the U.S. Immigration and Naturalization Service. Although Lopez-Sanchez had several outstanding warrants in 2015 authorities were unable to deport him due to San Francisco’s sanctuary city policy which prevents law enforcement officials from questioning a resident’s immigration status. Proponents of sanctuary city laws argue that they enable illegal immigrants to report crimes without the fear of being reported. Opponents argue that sanctuary city laws provide encourage illegal immigration and prevent law enforcement authorities from detaining and deporting criminals.
Yes and to go further I would say that anybody that has committed a crime within 5 years of citizenship should be stripped of that standing and then deported. And also increase the amount of time it takes to apply for full citizenship from 3 years back to 5 years again. Same thing should go for criminal record pardons (which the USA does not recognize) so it must fall under Fippa and the right to make sure that all residual of the action is also cleared from memory after the 10 years.
When we speak about crime a crime could be anything from running a red light which is illegal do speeding which is illegal even Jay walking which is illegal this is a very dull consumption and should be looked at
