US Immigration and Customs Enforcement BLASTS Sanctuary City San Francisco After Kate Steinle Verdict
On Thursday a San Francisco jury found Kate Steinle’s killer, an illegal alien, innocent of murder or manslaughter.
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 that day.
ICE Deputy Director Tom Homan released an official statement following the announcement of the verdict.
“San Francisco’s policy of refusing to honor ICE detainers is a blatant threat to public safety and undermines the rule of law. This tragedy could have been prevented if San Francisco had simply turned the alien over to ICE, as we requested, instead of releasing him back onto the streets. It is unconscionable that politicians across this country continue to endanger the lives of Americans with sanctuary policies while ignoring the harm inflicted on their constituents. Following the conclusion of this case, ICE will work to take custody of Mr. Garcia Zarate and ultimately remove him from the country.”
