WH Spox: GOP Has ‘No One To Blame But Themselves’ for Illegal Immigrant Crime

Wednesday at the White House press briefing when asked about sanctuary cities policies that many believe lead to crimes like the murder of 32 year-old Kathryn Steinle, press secretary Josh Earnest said the Republicans have “no one to blame but themselves,” because they have refused to pass the President Obama endorsed comprehensive immigration package.

After listing some law enforcement penalties included in the immigration bill, Earnest said, “These were the kind of enforcement previsions included in the law Republican blocked. So when they raise concerns about how effectively our immigration system is working to keep the communities safe they have no one to blame but themselves.”
