Megyn Kelly and well-known journalist and undocumented immigrant Jose Antonio Vargas battled Monday on “sanctuary cities” and the recent murder of Kate Steinle at the hands of an illegal immigrant.
Vargas, who was the central subject of CNN’s “Undocumented” documentary, argued the main issue in the murder of Steinle at the hands of an illegal Mexican immigrant was ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcement) not issuing a warrant for Juan Francisco Lopez-Sanchez.
Steinle was randomly shot to death in San Francisco by Lopez-Sanchez, who was deported five times and held by police under drug charges but released on March 26 when charges were dropped.
“The law is the law, and fidelity to the law is what binds us together as a country, and failure to do so has real consequences like Kate Steinle and her family just learned,” Kelly said.
Vargas continued to argue that ICE dropped the ball in letting Lopez-Sanchez get back into America several times: “If I leaved this country and try to come back to this country that I grew up in, there would be a lifetime bar.
