Activist: A mess in the making with sanctuary cities

A conservative black activist supports the effort by members of Congress to deal with illegal immigrants who seek refuge in "sanctuary cities."

In the wake of the recent murder of a tourist by an illegal alien in San Francisco, Congressman Duncan Hunter (R-California) says he supports a proposal to cut federal funding to entities that openly give sanctuary to illegals who otherwise would be detained for deportation. He told Fox News that California "got $40 million last year to take care of these illegal criminals."

Illegal alien Francisco Sanchez told authorities that he chose to go to San Francisco because of its "sanctuary city" policy. He had seven criminal convictions and had been deported five times. Sanchez has confessed to killing Kathryn Steinle on July 1 while she and her father walked along the city's Pier 14.

Jesse Lee Peterson is founder and president of The Brotherhood Organization of a New Destiny, which is based in Southern California. He says criminals like Sanchez are dangerous and come to the U.S. with "a different agenda" than to seek the American dream.

"... [A]fter a while we're going to have a mess on our hands like we've never had before," he laments. "Israel's been dealing with this kind of stuff for years now when they have suicide bombings, shootings in crowded places, innocent people being shot down."

"If we don't shut our borders and govern our country [better] than what we're doing now, we're going to be dealing with those types of issues and even worse."

Peterson is pleased that Representative Matt Salmon (R-Arizona) has introduced a bill that would lock up illegal immigrants for at least five years if they reenter the United States after being deported.

Steinle's parents have come out publicly in support of what's being called "Kate's Law."
