Thoughts about the Kate Steinle Murder Trial

Talking about the recent court case involving the undocumented immigrant who killed the Young US citizen Kate Steinle in San Francisco. Today a jury found the undocumented immigrant not guilty of murder.

Not everybody who is anti-illegal immigration is racist. In fact, everybody should be anti-illegal immigration. However, we should have priorities in the United States on our problems: which ones to address, how much money and attention to give to them, and in which in which order we address them.  Common sense says we should address them and fix them starting with the biggest and the worst first, the working our way down.

However, we should have priorities in the United States on our problems: which ones to address, how much money and attention to give to them, and in what order. immigration, even illegal immigration, is not shown to be an actual problem or an issue that negatively affects our economy or our communities. Maybe we should focus on obvious problems like mental health, gun-control, opioids, etc. Rather, illegal immigration is a political tool that certain mouthpieces use to rile up their base. the people who get riled up by illegal immigration – in the face of other obvious and far more pressing issues – show that they often have racial undertones in their attitudes.
