Illegal Alien Who Shot Kate Steinle Found Not Guilty Of Murder

Conservative pundit Ann Coulter said Steinle "would still be alive if we had a wall", referring to President Trump's call for the construction of a border wall between the USA and Mexico.

Zarate, 45, was acquitted of murder and involuntary manslaughter charges, as well as assault with a deadly weapon.

Zarate was found guilty of being a felon in possession of a firearm.

Zarate was accused of finding a stolen gun on using it to shoot the 32-year-old woman while she was walking with her father in 2015.

The jury of six men and six women - including three immigrants - found Garcia Zarate not guilty of homicide.

Garcia Zarate's lawyer, Matt Gonzalez, had argued that the defendant wasn't criminally responsible because he found the.40-caliber Sig Sauer and wasn't aware it was a gun when it accidentally went off.

The jury's decision indicates that it was convinced that the shooting was an accident.

"Nothing about Mr. Garcia Zarate's ethnicity, nothing about his immigration status, nothing about the fact that he is born in Mexico had any relevance as to what happened on July 1, 2015", the defense attorney said. Instead of deporting him, federal authorities sent him to San Francisco on a 20-year-old drug warrant for a small amount of marijuana.

President Trump later signed an executive order to cut funding from cities that limit cooperation with US immigration authorities, a policy that a federal judge in San Francisco permanently blocked Monday. In the aftermath of the shooting there was a lot of finger-pointing among local officials.

"San Francisco's policy of refusing to honor ICE detainers is a blatant threat to public safety and undermines the rule of law", he said in a statement.

"The verdict that came in today was not the one we were hoping for", said Alex Bastian, a spokesman for the San Francisco prosecutor's office.

"ICE knew that he had been deported five times", Mirkarimi has said. In reality, she was shot only once.

Trump also mentioned Steinle in his acceptance speech at the Republican National Convention after winning the Republican presidential nomination.

"My opponent wants Sanctuary Cities".

This summer, the House of Representatives passed H.R. 3004, dubbed "Kate's Law" - a measure named for Steinle.

Yet in aftermath of his sister's death, Brad Steinle spoke out against then-candidate Trump for "sensationalizing" her death. "They followed these ridiculous liberal policies, and because of their stupidity and their "form of justice" and caring more about the rights of illegal, convicted felons, tonight Kate Steinle is dead and her family has received no justice". I've never heard a word from his campaign manager, I've never heard a word from him.

"The Department of Justice will continue to ensure that all jurisdictions place the safety and security of their communities above the convenience of criminal aliens", Sessions said. "They did not obey the law".
