Illegal Immigrants Murder People, and Pointing That Out is Bigotry

I've been back-and-forthing with a very young, naive, flaky libertarian on a forum about immigration. He has a charming reason why we have to have open borders. It goes this way. If A wants to rent a room to B, and B isn't allowed to move into the United States to live in the room because of immigration laws, A's property rights are being violated. The difference between flaky libertarians and liberals are mainly that the former likes to make sentences up that sound somehow logical to justify their idiotic conclusions.  The liberals don't bother, and just appeal to emotions instead.

In the real world, of course, A's rent is paid not by B, but by the US government in the form of all kinds of goodies that are available to immigrants, legal and otherwise, from all different government levels. So if A is deprived of a cut of these handouts, somehow we're harming him.

With libertarians like that, we don't need liberals.

Oh, liberals, flaky libertarians, and neocons are all big on immigration, and constantly assure us that immigrants are just what we need, and that any other attitude is downright bigotry.

Wouldn't it have been a crying shame if somehow we'd deported Francisco Sanchez and made it stick? Think of the landlords whose property rights would have been violated! This is from

Happy Independence Day
The Associated Press reports:
SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — A man suspected in the shooting death of a woman at a busy San Francisco tourist destination has seven felony convictions and has been deported five times, most recently in 2009, a federal agency said Friday.
U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement had turned Francisco Sanchez over to San Francisco police March 26 on an outstanding drug warrant, agency spokeswoman Virginia Kice said.
Officers arrested Francisco Sanchez about an hour after Wednesday’s seemingly random slaying of Kathryn Steinle at Pier 14 — one of the busiest attractions in the city. People gather there to take in the views, joggers exercise, and families push strollers at all hours.
Sanchez was on probation for an unspecified conviction, police Sgt. Michael Andraychak said Thursday.
Kice said ICE issued a detainer for Sanchez in March, requesting notification of his release and that he stay in custody until immigration authorities could pick him up. The detainer was not honored, she said.
Freya Horne, counsel for the sheriff’s office, said Friday that federal detention orders are not a legal basis to hold someone, so Sanchez was released April 15. San Francisco is a sanctuary city, and local money cannot be spent to cooperate with federal immigration law.
The city does not turn over people who are in the country illegally unless there’s an active warrant for their arrest, she said. Horne said they checked and found none. ICE could have issued an active warrant if they wanted the city to keep him, she said.
“It’s not legal to hold someone on a request to detain. This is not just us. This is a widely adopted position,” Horne said.
Steinle was gunned down while out for an evening stroll with her father along the waterfront. Police said witnesses heard no argument or dispute before the shooting, suggesting it was a random attack.
Perhaps the President will speak at Kathryn Steinle’s funeral?
