Rep. Steve King was just as disgusted by the not guilty verdict in the Kate Steinle murder case as the rest of America. The justice system thoroughly failed Kate, her family, and every single American citizen
King has voted to oppose and fight “every form” of angst for illegal aliens. This is what I would like to hear from every single one of our lawmakers!
The illegal alien who, no one disagrees, killed Kate Steinle is found NOT guilty in sanctuary city, San Francisco. Sickening! I️ will spare no effort to do my own killing-of all amnesty in every form!

Since when is the life of a illegal immigrant felon worth more than an American citizen?
Jose Ines Garcia Zarate, an illegal immigrant who had been deported multiple times, shot and killed Steinle while she was walking on a San Francisco pier with her father in July 2015.
On “The Story,” King said it’s “sickening” not only that Zarate was in the U.S. in the first place, but also that a San Francisco jury on Thursday found him not guilty of murder.
After the shooting in 2015, King sponsored “Kate’s Law,” which would enhance penalties for convicted and deported criminals who re-enter the U.S. illegally.
The legislation, which was named in honor of Steinle, passed the House in 2016, but stalled in the Senate. Some lawmakers are now calling for it to be revived after Thursday’s verdict.
King notes that Karate even pleaded guilty to firing the gun and shooting and killing Steinle. However, his lawyers fought that it was accidental.
This man has been deported fie times and guilty of many felonies. Why the heck was he even given a trial?? He should have been taken care of four deportations ago!
“They don’t want to find him guilty of first- or second- degree murder or negligent homicide, and they found him guilty of a gun charge,” King continued, “They’re anti-gun, but they’re not anti-murder in San Francisco is what it looks to me like.”
He said it’s beyond a reasonable doubt that Zarate was responsible for Steinle’s death, yet he’s been given “amnesty” by a jury in a sanctuary city.
“It is a tragedy of justice, and I’m sickened by it,” he concluded.
