Obama Writes Personal Letters to 46 Felons, But No Word on Kate Steinle’s Death

56fffe09-b7b6-4a5b-a9b0-a92cffe634a9President Obama not only commuted 46 non-violent drug offenders on Monday, he also sent each prisoner a personal letter notifying them of their commutations.

It’s curious, then, that he has still not reached out to anyone in Kate Steinle’s family, the young woman who was murdered in broad daylight in San Francisco by an illegal alien who had been deported five times to Mexico.

In fact, it seems his entire administration is in the dark on what happened–or, much more likely, they are willfully ignoring the situation. After all, as Katie reported yesterday, DHS Secretary Jeh Johnson claimed to have no idea who she is.

But remember, after the deaths of Michael Brown, Freddie Gray, and Trayvon Martin, President Obama managed to find time in his busy schedule to call, write, or make a public statement. Oh, and how could we forget when Rush Limbaugh called Sandra Fluke a slut? Obama also had time to personally phone her, thanking her for speaking out about contraception and making sure she was OK.

As Marc Thiessen observed in The Washington Post, Obama’s silence in this case is deafening.

Then again, however, silence is all the administration has if they continue to support policies that get innocent Americans killed.
