Yesterday, America was shocked to learn that the murderer of Kate Steinle was found not guilty. Jose Ines Garcia Zarate, an illegal immigrant, 7 time felon who had been deported 5 times, illegally obtained a gun, fired that gun, killing Kate, but he was found not guilty. Needless to say, many people all over the country are outraged, including President Trump and ICE Deputy Director, Tom Homan.
Tom Homan released a statement saying:
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.
