Dept of Justice Likely To Slam Federal Charges On Kate Steinle’s Killer
Kate Steinle’s family may actually get justice from the Dept of Justice. DOJ officials confirmed to NBC News that federal charges against the illegal alien Mexican national who was acquited by the jury because the killing was “accidental”.
Illegal alien criminal Jose Ines Garcia Zarate had been deported five times and was wanted for a sixth deportation when Steinle was fatally shot on a San Francisco pier. Garcia Zarate, who is in custody at San Francisco County Jail and will be back in court on Dec. 14, said the shooting was an accident.
San Francisco Deputy District Attorney Diana Garcia argued the shooting was murder. The illegal alien sympathizing jury sided with the defense, which argued that the shooting was an accident, and found him guilty only of being a felon in possession of a firearm. That charge carries a maximum of three years in jail.
Kate Steinle was shot while walking with her father and a family friend on a San Francisco pier popular with tourists. Garcia Zarate said he was sitting on the pier when he found a gun under a chair. He said the gun was wrapped in a T-shirt and accidentally fired when he picked it up.
Before the shooting, Garcia Zarate had 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 American-hating, illegal alien loving sheriff’s department released him a few days after prosecutors dropped the marijuana charge, despite a request from ICE to detain him for deportation.
“San Francisco’s decision to protect criminal aliens led to the preventable and heartbreaking death of Kate Steinle,” U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions said in a statement Thursday night. “I urge the leaders of the nation’s communities to reflect on the outcome of this case and consider carefully the harm they are doing to their citizens by refusing to cooperate with federal law enforcement officers.”
Though the 2015 deadly shooting became a flashpoint in an intense national debate over immigration, the issue was never addressed inside the courtroom because the biased judge refused to allow it.
The liberal judge blocked mention of Garcia Zarate’s immigration status or the five times he was arrested and deported to Mexico before he came back across the border. The judge said the jury should consider only Garcia Zarate’s intentions on the July evening when Steinle was shot.
Never mind the fact that Zarate had a pattern of criminal behavior and utter disrespect for the rule of law in the United States.
Ignoring his defendent’s long history of criminal behavior, defense attorney Dan Horowitz said “His immigration status had no bearing on whether he purposely pulled the trigger or not.”
San Francisco is known as a “sanctuary city” because it blatantly violates federal laws with policies that bar local police from helping federal authorities identify and deport immigrants that came to the U.S. illegally. U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement Deputy Director Thamos Homan called the policy “a blatant threat to public safety.”
