Feds issue arrest warrant for Kate Steinle shooter

The Justice Department has issued an arrest warrant for the Mexican immigrant acquitted Thursday in the 2015 killing of Kate Steinle in San Francisco, a case that has reignited a rallying cry for stricter immigration reform and a crackdown on so-called “sanctuary cities.”

An official confirmed to The Washington Post that the Justice Department is considering federal charges against  Jose Ines Garcia Zarate, who has remained in law enforcement custody.

  1. “A rallying cry”? Nope. More like we’re going to run over Sacramento with bulldozers if they don’t conform to Federal law. We’re not upset – we’re beyond pissed off.

  2. Defund and send NO money to California due to Governor Brown’s inability to consider the lives of innocent AMERICAN Citizens versus his pandering to Hispanics (illegals) often criminals that prey on the innocents. Shame on him, he is despicable!

  3. The bulldozer needs to run over baldy first and then those corrupt people in sacratomato

  4. Typical CA politics all in the name of votes to push their stupid unwanted agenda and this goes for the attorney who defended this illegal moron, he has absolutely no regard for the innocent citizens, he’s more concerned about his pathetic attorney ethics, oh and lets not forget about the 12 jurors, Kate Steinle should have been one of their daughters. California politicians and the legal system never falters and always displays themselves with their heads where the sun never shines. I’m all for Trump cutting off any and all funding to CA.
