Family of Slain San Francisco Woman Push for Immigration Reform

Jim Steinle, the man whose daughter was shot dead in San Francisco by a convicted felon who was in the country illegally urged U.S. lawmakers on Tuesday to reform immigration laws and crack down on local policies intended to protect undocumented immigrants. Juan Francisco Lopez-Sanchez, a convicted felon who had been deported to Mexico five times, is charged in her murder. The shooting highlighted a longstanding "sanctuary city" policy in San Francisco, one of several hundred U.S. municipalities that limit assistance to federal immigration authorities.
