San Francisco under fire for being a 'sanctuary city' after illegal immigrant shot dead woman at random just TWO MONTHS after he was freed by police

The murder of a woman at a popular San Francisco pier allegedly by an illegal immigrant could have been avoided, federal immigration officials said Monday.

The suspect, Francisco Sanchez - a Mexican national who has been deported five times and is accused of shooting Kathryn Steinle, 32 - was in the custody of the San Francisco Sheriff's Department on March 26, but was let go, it has been revealed.

Sanchez, 45, was brought in on a decade-old drug charge, but was released on April 15 when the charges were dropped - just over two months before the murder on July 1.

In a statement released today to ABC News, Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) said they were not notified that Sanchez had been released - at which he would have been deported.
