The killing of 32-year-old Kathryn Steinle in San Francisco, California, allegedly by Juan Francisco Lopez-Sanchez, an undocumented immigrant, has many focusing on the “sanctuary city” policy that many U.S. Cities adopted. But the real focus shouldn’t be on sanctuary cities, it should be on what happens to illegal immigrants after they commit a crime.
Plans to relocate a federal government office in the Twin Cities have gone off track, and all because of a bus stop. Many people who need to go to the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services office in Bloomington wouldn’t be able to get there easily without public transportation. The office’s current location is just a block away from a bus stop, but the office is scheduled to move this fall. Even though the office is still in Bloomington, it is at least 3 miles away from a Metro Transit bus stop.
It’s been a busy week at the immigration centers, now that the federal government is offering a delay in deportation for certain young illegal immigrants.
