On Thursday, conservative author and commentator Michelle Malkin appeared on Fox News to offer her take on the Kate Steinle case verdict.
Speaking with Sean Hannity, Malkin said:
My outrage is laden with melancholy because I have reported and investigated on so many of these cases over the last 25 years, and there has been so little, if any, accountability for people in the federal, state, and local government who have blood on their hands. Kate Steinle and her family never wanted or wished for the publicity that they've gotten, the pain that they've suffered, and the fact that they have no choice but to be front and center in the headlines as they suffer as a result of this verdict.
This really is, I think, a damning indictment of so-called San Francisco values. Where is Nancy Pelosi tonight? Where has she been for the last 25 years? This is her city, and it is her open borders policies that have haunted so many innocent people and innocent lives in San Francisco.
And it is the conversion of America into a sanctuary nation instead of a sovereign nation that has endangered us – and it is one of the primary reasons that President Trump was elected in the first place. Because people made a choice after seeing this fork in the road, after seeing both political parties, Sean, both Republicans, and their big business donors, and Democrats, and their identity politics grievance-mongers who don't care about the rule of law in this country, and the collusion between those two things that have created sanctuary policies and a sanctuary nation that still exists to this day.
When will this city and county sheriff in San Francisco, and that mayor, and that governor ever be held accountable for the deaths as a result of bloody open borders?
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) has a long history of voting against border security measures and policies that would harm sanctuary cities:
Given her voting history, it’s unlikely that Rep. Pelosi would ever change her tune regarding the security of America’s southern border.
