After the travesty of justice that saw the killer of Kate Steinle be let off with murder (or at the very least involuntary manslaughter). Zarate was acquitted of first- and second-degree murder, involuntary manslaughter and found not guilty of assault with a semi-automatic weapon. He was found guilty of possessing a firearm by a felon.
This guy was deported five times and has committed many crimes in the US including dealing drugs. Yet there are no riots in the streets of California, which is strange considering there is usually a riot over the drop of a hat.
But it looks like someone actually cares about justice after all. The Department of Justice has decided to file charges and get this guy off the streets. “Following the conclusion of this case, ICE will work to take custody of Mr. Garcia Zarate and ultimately remove him from the country.”
The President Tweeted:
“The Kate Steinle killer came back and back over the weakly protected Obama border, always committing crimes and being violent, and yet this info was not used in court. His exoneration is a complete travesty of justice. BUILD THE WALL!”
AG Jeff Sessions released a statement: “When jurisdictions choose to return criminal aliens to the streets rather than turning them over to federal immigration authorities, they put the public's safety at risk,” the statement said. “San Francisco's decision to protect criminal aliens led to the preventable and heartbreaking death of Kate Steinle.”
