Kate Steinle’s Parents Sue Local, Federal Agencies: “We’re Mad as Hell and Not Going to Take It Anymore!”
On July 1, 2015, illegal immigrant criminal Juan Francisco Sanchez opened fire on Pier 14 in the Embarcadero district in San Francisco, California, shooting 32-year-old Kathryn Steinle in the back.
Kate Steinle died in her father’s arms.
NO ONE from the Obama administration has contacted the Steinle family after she was murdered by an illegal alien in the sanctuary city of San Francisco. And no one attended Kate’s funeral.
Today the Steinle family sued local and federal agencies for the death of her daughter.
Kate’s mother told reporters, “We’re mad as hell and we’re not going to take it anymore.”

NBC Bay Area reported:
The family of Kate Steinle, who was fatally shot when she was walking along a San Francisco pier in July, plans to file a lawsuit against San Francisco Sheriff Ross Mirkarimi, Immigration and Customs Enforcement and The Bureau of Land Management holding them responsible for her death.
Authorities say Mexican national Francisco Sanchez, an undocumented immigrant who had been arrested and deported previously, shot Steinle in July while she was walking on the Embarcadero with her father. Her death sparked a national debate about San Francisco’s controversial sanctuary city policy, which offers special protection for undocumented immigrants.
The Steine family — which includes Kate’s parents Jim Steinle and Liz Sullivan and her brother Brad — will be announcing the lawsuit at a press conference on the steps of the San Francisco City Hall Tuesday. They will be joined by their attorneys Frank Pitre, Brian Schnarr and Alison Cordova of Cotchett, Pitre & McCarthy.
Since the death of their daughter, Jim Steinle and Liz Sullivan have become activists demanding justice for their daughter. “Everyone can’t keep saying this is the way it is — it isn’t the way it has to be. We have to stand up and say we’re mad as hell we’re not going to take it anymore,” Sullivan said.
