VIDEO: Document Shows San Francisco Sheriff Asked Feds for Illegal Immigrant Accused of Pier Shooting

A new document obtained by ABC7 News indicates San Francisco Sheriff Ross Mirkarimi asked for suspected Pier 14 shooter Francisco Sanchez to be transported from Southern California to San Francisco.

Sanchez was being held in San Bernardino County in March and was brought to the Bay Area at the request of the sheriff.

Mirkarimi has blamed the feds for returning Pier 14 murder suspect Francisco Sanchez to San Francisco in March on a minor 20-year-old marijuana possession charge, but the document obtained by ABC7 News indicates it was the sheriff's office that made the request.

The letter asks the federal prison in Southern California where Sanchez had served a 46-month sentence to notify the sheriff's department when "the subject is ready for our pick up." But Mirkarimi says his department was only responding to a request.

"All the contact was initialized by the feds. Once that happens, it's our obligation to arrange transportation," Mirkarimi said.
