Morning News Weekends: Ann Badmus

The White House on Monday defended its immigration policies and blasted Republicans following the killing of a San Francisco woman – allegedly by an illegal immigrant.

When asked if the case was a failure of the administration’s enforcement policies, White House press secretary Josh Earnest chided Republicans for blocking a bipartisan immigration bill that would have boosted funding for border security.

“I recognize that people want to play politics with this,” Earnest said. “The fact is the president has done everything within his power to make sure that we’re focusing our law enforcement resources on criminals and those who pose a threat to public safety.”

Kathryn Steinle, 32, was shot and killed Wednesday at a popular tourist destination in San Francisco. The suspect, Juan Francisco Lopez-Sanchez, had multiple felony convictions and had been deported to Mexico five times.

Earnest faulted the “political efforts of Republicans” for blocking “the kind of investment that we would like to make in securing our border and keeping our communities safe

Is the senseless murder in San Francisco the catalyst for Democrats and Republicans to come together on a plan for comprehension immigration reform or will politics continue to get in the way? Ann Badmus offers insights.
