Real estate mogul and Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump, who has come under fire for referring to some Mexican immigrants as "rapists" and "killers," again blasted border security in the wake of the slaying of a California woman and the news that the suspect was deported five times.
Trump did not directly refer to the comments that have cost him valuable business sponsorships and prompted denunciations from Latino groups. Instead, he focused on border security.
Other GOP contenders, after largely sidestepping the issue, are now blasting Trump's immigration remarks, with Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida the latest to do so.
In a series of tweets Friday, Trump said the shooting death of 32-year-old Kathryn Steinleat a popular tourist spot in San Francisco was unacceptable. "Our Southern border is unsecure," he said in a tweet. "I am the only one that can fix it, nobody else has the guts to even talk about it." Francisco Sanchez, 45, was arrested on suspicion of murder. Sanchez has seven felony convictions.
