  • Mexican Man Found Not Guilty of Murder Charges in 2015 Fatal Shooting of Kate Steinle

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. "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".

Steinle's death put San Francisco and its "sanctuary city" policy in the spotlight, as Democrats and Republicans lashed out at city officials for refusing to cooperate with federal deportation efforts.

Without knowledge of his release, ICE officials would have to use sources and evidence to track down Lopez-Sanchez before he moves around the U.S.to possibly avoid deportation.

In June, the U.S. House of Representatives passed "Kate's Law", named for Steinle, that would increase penalties for illegal immigrants who return to the United States.

John Binder is a reporter for Breitbart News.

"It was San Francisco's sanctuary city policies that killed Kate Steinle", Hannity said.

Trump has said that Steinle's death, just two weeks after he launched his presidential campaign, is emblematic of the problems in the USA immigration system, particularly the continued existence of sanctuary cities where local officials refuse to cooperate with federal immigration officials.

He was convicted on the lesser charge of possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.

Steinle, her father and a friend were at the pier when a bullet struck Steinle's lower back and tore through her abdominal aorta, authorities said. The administration has appealed.

At trial, Zarate admitted to firing the shot that killed Steinle, 32, but contended that he had picked up a gun underneath a bench on the San Francisco pier and accidentally fired it July 1, 2015.

San Francisco became a sanctuary city in 1989.

ICE also requested an immigration detainer so the agency would be notified if he was released.

"Her death was preventable - and it should have been prevented", Attorney General Jeff Sessions said in July.

Several months after Steinle's death, Trump claimed that she had been shot five times.

Freya Horne, chief legal counsel to the San Francisco County Sheriff, said in a 2015 interview that Garcia Zarate was let go because there was no legal cause to detain the suspect. "She would still be alive today if her killer had been imprisoned or deported, as he should have been".
