Kate Steinle’s Illegal Alien Killer Acquitted, Defense Lawyer Sends Trump Stunning Message

Kate Steinle was shot in northern California in 2015 by a five-time deported illegal alien. She died in the hospital two hours later. Yesterday, said illegal alien was acquitted.

From Fox News:

Jose Ines Garcia Zarate was found not guilty Thursday of murdering Kate Steinle on Pier 14 in San Francisco in July 2015 in a case that sparked a heated national debate over illegal immigration and so-called sanctuary cities, and U.S. immigration officials said he will be deported.

Zarate was acquitted of first and second degree murder and involuntary manslaughter. He also was found not guilty of assault with a semi-automatic weapon. He was found guilty of possessing a firearm by a felon. The jury had deliberated for six days.

Steinle was walking with her father and a family friend in July 2015 when she was shot, collapsing into her father’s arms. Zarate had been released from a San Francisco jail about three months before the shooting, despite a request by federal immigration authorities to detain him for deportation.

The killer’s lawyer had this message for President Trump and AG Jeff Sessions:

From ABC News:

President Donald Trump lashed out Thursday night at a not guilty ruling in a murder trial he had used to argue against illegal immigration.


It’s good that the killer will be deported – AGAIN – but this ruling is a mockery of the American justice system. RIP, Kate. We need the wall built now more than ever. Agreed?
