I wish I was kidding.
Nearly two weeks after 32-year-old Kathryn Steinle was murdered on San Francisco’s Pier 14 by an illegal alien and convicted felon who was released from prison earlier this year, President Barack Obama has failed to contact the victim’s family or mention her in public. Yet Obama took the time to write (and release) 46 personal letters this month to felons imprisoned for non-violent drug offenses whose sentences he has commuted.
… Critics have noted that Obama was quick to reach out to the family of Michael Brown, who was killed while charging a police officer in Ferguson, Missouri last year, enhancing Brown’s heroic status to drive a political narrative. He has done the same in other, similar cases.
This blatant demonstration of selective outrage is par for the course in Obama’s White House. When the victim and the circumstances do not line up with Obama’s political agenda, he can’t seem to find the time to call for justice. It’s very clear what his priorities are, and protecting our borders -and the citizens living within them- are not one of them.
