Jury Acquits Illegal Alien in Kate Steinle’s Murder, Trump Says “Travesty of Justice”

A jury in San Francisco acquitted illegal alien Jose Ines Garcia Zarate not guilty of homicide-related charges in the death of American Kate Steinle on Thursday, setting off a firestorm of criticism from the Trump administration. The jury did convict Garcia Zarate on lesser charges related to illegal possession of a firearm.

The court gave the jury the option of convicting the illegal immigrant of either first-degree homicide, second-degree homicide, or involuntary manslaughter, but they declined to assign all three.

President Trump weighed in on Twitter hours after the verdict, calling it “disgraceful” and “a complete travesty of justice.” He implored Congress to appropriate funds so that he could “BUILD THE WALL:”

The president also took the opportunity to slam Democrats as “weak on Crime,” which he claims would ruin their party’s chances in upcoming elections.

Democrats have threatened a shutdown in recent weeks over illegal immigration, and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) canceled a meeting on shutdown negotiations last week.

The case, which has galvanized opposition to liberal policies that are soft on illegal immigration, will certainly make it harder for Democrats to justify their obstruction to the American people.
