I’m sure you were just as shocked as the rest of America last night. A San Francisco jury found Jose Ines Garcia Zarate not guilty in the killing of Kate Steinle.
This illegal alien had confessed to killing this young woman. Yet the hyper-liberal city gave him a pass, because he was a Mexican illegal.
It was a travesty of justice. A woman is dead and her killer will soon be free. All of America should be shocked and dismayed. Yet liberals are celebrating.
They won’t be celebrating for long. Word has reached us that the DOJ might be weighing in on this case.
From Fox News:
The Justice Department is considering bringing federal charges against Jose Ines Garcia Zarate after his not guilty verdict in the Kate Steinle murder trial, department officials told Fox News on Friday.
A California jury acquitted Zarate of the more serious charges in the case, including murder, involuntary manslaughter and assault with a deadly weapon — only convicting him of being a felon in possession of a firearm.
U.S. immigration officials had said they would deport Garcia Zarate – also known as Juan Francisco Lopez Sanchez — who already 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 undocumented felon could spend three years in prison for the firearm charge but has already been behind bars for over two years as the case has made its way through court.
Justice Department spokeswoman Sarah Isgur Flores acknowledged Friday that the DOJ is looking at federal charges. She suggested a possible charge could be felony re-entry or a charge pertaining to a violation of supervised release.
There is no way that Trump’s Department of Justice will let this man walk free. He was a repeat offender. He was deported numerous times just to reenter the country. Yet he is safe and free, after murdering Steinle, because of illegal sanctuary policy.
This is proof of how warped and broken liberal America is. They’d rather protect an illegal immigrant—one guilty of murder—than millions of Americans.
But when these liberals set Garcia Zarate free, they were underestimating Jeff Sessions. You better believe his DOJ will make sure Garcia Zarate doesn’t step foot on American soil again. They will either deport him—and make sure he’s gone for good. Or they will put him behind bars for the rest of his life.
It shouldn’t be too hard. Criminals have a way of giving law enforcement second cases. Garcia Zarate will break the law again. He can’t get away forever.
