The man who attacked House Speaker Nancy Pelosi ‘s husband in their San Francisco home last week is an illegal alien who has been living in the U.S. since 2008, according to CNBC. David DePape, a Canadian, crossed the southern border as a temporary visitor, which allowed him to stay in the U.S. for six months. For the past several years he has been living in a converted bus in Berkeley. The New York Post reports that his ex-girlfriend, who is currently in prison, said that DePape has been mentally ill for years. The Department of Homeland Security has sent a detainer request to the San Francisco Police Department asking that they hold him for deportation after his trial. De Pape has been charged with attempted murder and multiple other crimes related to his October 28 hammer assault on 82-year-old Paul Pelosi. Under California law, attempted murder is punishable by 5 to 9 years in prison. Unfortunately, because California is a sanctuary state, if and when De Pape completes his sentence, he will not be turned over to ICE for deportation.
