Yep a San Fransisco jury believed Jose Garcia Zarate “accidentally” killed Kate Steinle was therefore “not guilty” of manslaughter,a crime defined loosely as: the crime of killing a human being without malice aforethought, or otherwise in circumstances not amounting to murder. Every year Americans serve time behind bars for such crimes. This is an insufferable miscarriage of justice. I watched footage of Jose Garcia Zarate and his lawyer as the verdict of “not guilty” was read in the courtroom. You’d think he was the victim in this case.
WH communications director Sara Sanders issued the following statement on the verdict:
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.
Apparently Zarate will be deported…again. As the President tweeted, “Build the wall!”
