The first to speak was Susan Oliver, the widow of Sacramento County Deputy Danny Oliver, who was killed with another officer last October by a previously deported Mexican gangster during a six-hour crime spree in northern California.

The most publicized case, the one that prompted this hearing, was the murder of Kate Steinle as she strolled a popular San Francisco pier with her father. She was shot by a five-times-deported Mexican career criminal, Francisco Sanchez, who had been recently released by the county sheriff because of the city’s extreme sanctuary policy.

In terms of politicians protecting foreign lawbreakers, the death of Denny McCann in Chicago is one of the most disturbing around. Denny was run down and dragged to death by drunk-driving illegal alien Saul Chavez. But instead of keeping the perp in jail for trial, Cook County released him on bail even though he was an obvious flight risk. So of course Chavez disappeared, leaving the McCann family with a big legal mess along with the emotional pain.

In his statement, Denny’s brother explained the very suspicious release of the criminal in secret on a Sunday after the family had been assured by authorities that Chavez wouldn’t be allowed to post bond because of an immigration detainer. It’s hard not to think a fix was in, somewhere in Chicago politics.
Laura Wilkerson spoke on behalf of her 18-year-old son Josh who was savagely beaten to death by Hermilo Moralez. She read from the autopsy report to reveal the brutality of the beating which the medical examiner described as torture: Joshua was “tied up with braided rope, 13 loops around his neck with a slipknot; it goes behind his back through his back belt loop; it goes to his hands in his feet behind his body. He has multiple fractures in his face and nasal cavity. His throat and his voice box are crushed.”
Wilkerson challenged the Senators to stop putting foreign criminals first, and start protecting Americans: “I don’t want the sympathy. I want you to do something.”

Michael Ronnebeck, the uncle of Grant, spoke about the murder of his nephew as he worked checkout in an Arizona convenience store. The illegal alien shooter is reportedly a member of the Mexican mafia. Michael pleaded for laws to be enacted that would protect Americans.

Finally, Senator Sessions, who had been given the gavel by Senator Grassley, cross-examined the second panel of witnesses, two useless administration muppets. Sessions ended up by declaring the obvious truth about illegal alien crime: “This administration has consistently and steadfastly place the goal of amnesty above the goal of public safety.”
