President Trump Says Kate Steinle Verdict Disgraceful
No Wonder People Are Angry With Illegal Immigration




Fox News | Dec 01, 2017

President Trump late Thursday tweeted that the not guilty verdict in the Kate Steinle murder trial was “disgraceful,” highlighting his apparent frustration at the resolution of a case he had cited during his presidential campaign as a justification for tougher immigration enforcement.

“A disgraceful verdict in the Kate Steinle case!” Trump tweeted after the jury rejected possible charges ranging from involuntary manslaughter to first-degree murder. “No wonder the people of our Country are so angry with Illegal Immigration.”

Jim Steinle, who was walking with his 32-year-old daughter when she was killed, echoed Trump’s sentiments, telling the San Francisco Chronicle the family was saddened and shocked by the verdict.

"There's no other way you can coin it. Justice was rendered, but it was not served," he said in what he called the last interview he would do about the case.

A jury earlier Thursday found Jose Ines Garcia Zarate not guilty in Steinle’s killing on a San Francisco pier during the presidential primary campaign in 2015.

U.S. immigration officials said they will deport Garcia Zarate, who had been deported five times and was wanted for a sixth deportation when Steinle was fatally shot in the back while walking with her father.


The killing touched off a fierce national immigration debate, and was used by then-candidate Trump to push for a wall on the Mexican border.

"From Day 1 this case was used as a means to foment hate, to foment division and to foment a program of mass deportation. It was used to catapult a presidency along that philosophy of hate of others," defense attorney Francisco Ugarte said after the verdict. "I believe today is a day of vindication for the rest of immigrants."

The case spotlighted San Francisco's "sanctuary city" policy, which limits local officials from cooperating with U.S. immigration authorities.

Politics, however, did not come up in the month-long trial that featured extensive testimony from ballistics experts. Defense attorneys argued that Garcia Zarate was a hapless homeless man who killed Steinle in a freak accident. Prosecutors said he meant to shoot and kill her.

Garcia Zarate did not deny shooting Steinle and said it was an accident.

Jurors did find him guilty of being a felon in possession of a firearm, meaning he knowingly had a firearm but there was no intent for him to hurt or shoot anyone. Public Defender Jeff Adachi said the count carries a potential sentence of 16 months to three years behind bars.

The family did not attend the reading of the verdict. Jurors left without comment and the judge sealed their names.

Before the shooting, Garcia Zarate finished a federal prison sentence for illegal re-entry into the United States and had been transferred to San Francisco's jail in March 2015 to face a 20-year-old charge for selling marijuana.

The Associated Press contributed to this report.

Ed Note: Another in the long line of San Francisco insults to the US Judicial System and the current administration. Defense Attorney Francisco Ugarte made outrageous claims that this trial spotlighted both the vindication of Illegals and the sanctuary city policy.

Ugarte will have to live with this politically charged rape of the trial.

Tony it all pertains to the "Sanctuary Cities" garbage. This goof Jose Ines Garcia Zarate, has been deported five times, is a convicted felon and because of his being in San Francisco, prior to the shooting, under Sanctuary protections, he "found" a semi-auto pistol and was playing with it - it discharged - as a result Kate Steinle was hit, the bullet piercing her aorta, it killed her.

The rule of Law was not, in any way, shape or form followed. The San Francisco Govt and citizens should be ashamed.
