Breitbart news last night:
A jury found Jose Garcia Zarate “not guilty” on charges for the 2015 killing of Steinle. Zarate, previously using the alias Juan Francisco Lopez-Sanchez, was found guilty on a charge of possessing a firearm. He previously admitted to killing Steinle and traveling to San Francisco for its sanctuary status. The young woman was walking on San Francisco’s Pier 14 with her father when she was shot in the back and killed. Her last words were please to her father for help as she died in his arms. Zarate had been convicted of seven felonies and deported five times at the time of Steinle’s death.
White House press secretary, Sarah Huckabee Sanders response:
Yesterday’s verdict in San Francisco underscores the danger to public safety when our Nation fails to enforce its laws. Kate Steinle was killed by an illegal immigrant and convicted felon who had been deported from the United States five times. He, and countless other criminal illegal immigrants like him, should never be allowed to threaten our citizens.
It’s more important now than ever for Congress to secure our borders and provide the resources, including more ICE officers, needed to deport criminal illegal aliens and to finally stop sanctuary city policies that cause needless loss of innocent life. Politicians who fail to address these needs share responsibility for preventable crimes committed against innocent Americans.
Had San Francisco enforced our Nation’s immigration laws, the Steinle family would be celebrating this holiday with all of their loved ones.
This verdict makes our country’s justice system looks like something out of a third world country. A career criminal committed murder after arriving in a “Sanctuary City” which by design is intended to protect criminals at the expense of US citizens. I expect this to be the catalyst that ensures that the wall will built as it provides the Trump administration with exactly the kind of ammunition it needs to get it done.
