Univision’s Jorge Ramos, the left-wing activist who confronted Donald Trump in Iowa last week and tried to make Trump’s press conference all about him and his pet causes, told CNN this weekend that Kate’s Law is “completely unfair” to millions of illegal immigrants.
The proposed law is named after the late Kate Steinle, who was murdered in San Francisco while going on a walk with her father by an illegal immigrant who had previously been deported five times. The illegal immigrant said he came to San Francisco because he knew it was a “sanctuary city.” If Kate’s Law passes, deported illegal immigrants who are caught re-entering the country would be sentenced to a mandatory five-year federal prison term.
Ramos, though, insisted that such a law is “completely unfair” to the millions of illegal immigrants in the country.
“I think it is unfair that because one undocumented immigrant killed a wonderful human being that all immigrants are being blamed for that killing,” he said. “It is so unfair… it is as unfair as if we were to criticize all white men in the United States for what happened in that theater in Aurora, Colorado.”
Ramos said his “condolences go to the families of those two Americans who have been killed recently by undocumented immigrants” before again stressing that “it is unfair to stereotype a community… the Hispanic community or the immigrant community.” He said it is “completely unfair to criticize millions of people for what one or two people have done.”
Despite evidence that makes his assertion far from conclusive, Ramos also continued to insist that immigrants (Ramos never said illegal immigrants when referring to crime rates) commit fewer crimes than those born in the U.S.
