Supporters of “sanctuary cities” like San Francisco are now trying to save face after the murder of a young San Francisco woman by a 5 times deported illegal immigrant last week, as Katie Pavlich writes.  

Meanwhile, several Voices of Montana listeners spotted Montana on the map containing sanctuary cities.

Feinstein may be condemning sanctuary city polices that protect violent felons now, but back in 2013 she offered an amendment to the Gang of 8 legislation that protected cities like San Francisco from federal crack downs and emboldened local law enforcement to keep federal immigration agents out of jails. In other words, her amendment allowed sanctuary cities to continue their harboring of illegal aliens and evasion of federal law.

“The city made a mistake, not to deport someone that the federal government strongly felt should be deported,” Clinton said during an interview with CNN. “So I have absolutely no support for a city that ignores the strong evidence that should be acted on.”

On Sept. 6, 2007 at Dartmouth College while debating during her last attempt to become president, then-Sen. Hillary Clinton supported sanctuary cities saying they help ensure the “personal safety and security of all the citizens.”

When pressed if that means she supports the sanctuary cities policy Clinton replied, “Well, I don’t think there is any choice.”

National Review: Knowing What We Know Now, Mrs. Clinton, Would You Still Support Sanctuary Cities?

Just last month, the Senate Judiciary Committee received a report that in just four years, 121 illegal aliens who had been released by ICE went on to murder Americans. This spring, the new director of ICE actually asked Congress for legislation cracking down on sanctuary cities, but within hours was forced by the White House to recant. This isn’t even the first time this has happened in San Francisco; in 2008, a gang member who was shielded by the city’s sanctuary policies murdered an American father and his two sons. Near Sacramento last year, a previously deported illegal alien who had repeatedly come in contact with police murdered two sheriff’s deputies. (At least in this instance, Republicans in Congress have responded with immigration-enforcement legislation, though it hasn’t yet been passed by either house.) Also in 2008, high school football star Jamiel Shaw was murdered by a DREAMer a day after Los Angeles released the illegal alien (rather than turning him over to ICE) after serving four months for assault with a deadly weapon and battery on a police officer. The Remembrance Project documents those murdered by illegal aliens.

National Review’s Jim Geraghty said that Hillary’s CNN interview was terrible.  He shared this  Politico’s Dylan Byers:

The first national interview of Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign did not go well. She dodged questions about Bernie Sanders’ appeal, refused to say whether she would seek to raise taxes, dismissed data showing that the majority of Americans’ don’t trust her, and was repeatedly forced to defend her lack of transparency at both the State Department and the Clinton Foundation.

‘I didn’t hear a more open or transparent Hillary Clinton,’ Keilar said after her interview. ‘I heard her not engaging on the issue of Bernie Sanders. He’s a self-described Democratic socialist. I asked her why is he garnering this support, this enthusiasm, that you don’t seem to among Democrats. She wouldn’t engage on that. Even on this concern of if she were to face off against Jeb Bush, and there would be this dynastic race between a Bush and a Clinton… she wouldn’t engage on that. She was very quick to move on.’
