President Obama’s Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson Tuesday finally joined the chorus of voices criticizing the "sanctuary city" policies in San Francisco many say led to the murder of Kate Steinle.  Steinle was allegedly shot by an illegal immigrant with prior convictions while walking along the San Francisco waterfront in July.
