Victor Davis Hanson reacts to an illegal immigrant allegedly killing a woman, Bambi Larson, in San Jose. The man, Carlos Eduardo Arevalo Carranza, was detained by ICE in October but was not deported. His criminal history includes possession of methamphetamine, attempt to enter the U.S. several times without detention. His DNA sample has also linked him to other crimes.
From Thursday's edition of Laura Ingraham's FOX News show:
VICTOR DAVIS HANSON: What I'm really angry about is the policy that we know from history, whether it was nullification in the Civil War or George Wallace standing in that courthouse saying, 'I don't want to obey federal law.'
Every time a state tries to overrule the federal jurisdiction we have chaos and civil strife...
The people who are the architects of this policy whether they're justices on the Ninth Circuit that overruled legislation, or they're Jerry Brown who signed the sanctuary city bill and now is in glorious retirement, or whether it's Nancy Pelosi up in her Napa Valley estate. They're not like Rocky Jones who gets killed in Visalia or Bambi Larson who gets killed in San Jose. They have the means, the influence, the capital to make walls and live in nice neighborhoods.
They're never subject to the ramifications of their abstract ideology. And if they were, they wouldn't tolerate this for one second and that's why people are mad about it.
