Fox News’s Megyn Kelly questions Obama’s silence on San Francisco murder

Fox News’ Megyn Kelly recently pointed out that President Barack Obama has been tight-lipped on the murder of a California woman by an illegal Mexican immigrant in San Francisco, even as the fatal incident has sparked outrage across the nation.

Francisco Sanchez, 45, was charged with the murder of 32-year-old Kathryn Steinle. Sanchez, an undocumented Mexican immigrant, shot and killed Steinle on July 1 on Pier 14 in San Francisco. The young adult woman was killed while she was strolling with her father along the popular Embarcadero Pier 14 in the city.

Sanchez has a long criminal record, and has been deported to Mexico five times. He was in jail in April, but the city authorities released him without notifying federal officials. The murder triggered widespread criticism over the city’s ‘sanctuary’ law and the growing issue of illegal immigration.

Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump triggered another wave of criticism by calling Mexican immigrants ‘killers’ and ‘rapists’. But, President Obama remained silent on the murder.

Kelly contrasted the lack of Mr. Obama’s reaction to his direct comments on the deaths of Michael Brown and Freddie Gray – the black men who were fatally shot by police officers after they resisted arrests.

Raising question over Mr. Obama’s silence, Kelly said, “But for Kate Steinle, nothing, no comments, no swarm of FBI agents, no DOJ investigation. Why?”

Marc Thiessen said Mr. Obama’s silence was deafening. He blamed the president’s so-called liberal policies for the death of the Californian woman.
