5-Time Deported Mexican Immigrant Admits To Killing

The Mexican immigrant arrested for seemingly randomly killing a woman as she strolled with her father at the popular Pier 14 tourist spot in San Francisco last week is admitting to the crime, in a local television interview.

Francisco Sanchez appeared confused at times in the interview with KGO-TV in San Francisco. He had been deported five times before the shooting. Donald Trump, who’s running for President, tweeted that the shooting is an example of the broken immigration system.
