Francisco Sanchez, the illegal Mexican immigrant deported multiple times who claimed to have shot and killed Kate Steinle by accident in San Francisco, has been formally charged with murder.

Don’t blame the Obama administration for Sanchez’s many trips through the revolving door at the border, though, no matter how tempting. According to The Hill, White House spokesperson Josh Earnest today said that “the president has done everything within his power to make sure that we’re focusing our law enforcement resources on criminals and those who pose a threat to public safety.”

That’s right. Earnest blames the GOP for its continual efforts to block “the kind of investment that we would like to make in securing our border and keeping our communities safe.”
