Society is now less convinced of the absolute accuracy of the criminal justice system. — Tom Price
I am convinced that, because the criminal justice system is run by humans, it is naturally subject to human error. There is no rational basis to believe that this same type of human error will not infect capital murder trials. — Tom Price
Illegal Alien Murderer Found Not Guilty
A beautiful young American daughter is dead because our southern borders are sieves. An absolutely obscene and abhorrent verdict has been rendered in the case of the illegal alien who murdered this lovely young woman. The perpetrator walks free, and a young American girl and her parents get no justice.
The San Francisco District Attorney’s Office argues that Garcia Zarate intentionally aimed a gun at Steinle and fired at her, before throwing the weapon into the bay and running away. The defense paints the shooting as a freak accident, arguing that the gun accidentally discharged and the bullet ricocheted on the concrete pier 78 feet before hitting Steinle.
Jose Ines Garcia Zarate had been deported five times and was wanted for a sixth deportation when Steinle was fatally shot in the back in 2015. He was protected from another deportation by San Francisco’s sanctuary policy restricting cooperation with federal immigration authorities.
Garcia Zarate said the shooting was an accident, but he shot the firearm into multitudes of people on the San Francisco pier. He stated that he first shot at a sea lion, and that he had stepped on the gun and it went off. His story changed, but when he fired the gun, he claimed the bullet apparently ricocheted off cement and hit Kate in the back, killing her. After he shot her, he kicked his firearm into the San Francisco bay.
Zarate was released from jail despite federal authorities requesting he be held for a 6th deportation. He has seven prior felony convictions, and that information was kept from the jury in this murder trial.
Steinle’s 2015 death put San Francisco and its “sanctuary city” policy in the spotlight, as city officials got blowback for refusing to cooperate with federal deportation efforts.
The attorney for this illegal alien actually took a verbal shot at our President over this verdict. Unbelievable.
President Trump’s Policies
Throughout the campaign Donald Trump pushed for a southern border wall to stop the influx of illegal aliens many of whom are gang members and criminals. Why the hell hasn’t our congress helped Trump build that wall and protect Americans?
President Trump vowed to remove criminal illegal aliens from the U.S. immediately and pledged to get a law passed banning sanctuary cities. He vowed to withhold federal funding from sanctuary cities. Mayors of New York City, Seattle, Los Angeles, Philadelphia, Chicago, and Providence spoke out in defiance of a possible nationwide, anti-sanctuary city law. These sanctuary cities are committed to lawlessness, and they refuse to protect American citizens who live there.
Had these criminals not been in our country illegally, these crimes, the victimization of our citizens and the costs of their crimes borne by American taxpayers could have been completely avoided.
Illegal immigrants clearly commit a level of violent and drug related crimes disproportionate to their population. In an April, 2017 Hill article it was reported that statistics show that a population of just over 3.5 percent residing in the U.S. unlawfully committed 22 percent to 37 percent of all murders in the nation. This is astounding.
In California alone, over 2,400 illegal immigrants out of a total prison population of 130,000 are imprisoned in the state’s prison system for the crime of homicide.
Federal Judges, the Courts
On 20 November 2017, the Chicago Tribune reported that a federal judge permanently blocked President Donald Trump’s executive order to cut funding from cities that limit cooperation with U.S. immigration authorities. U.S. District Court Judge William Orrick rejected the administration’s argument that the executive order applies only to a relatively small pot of money and said Trump cannot set new conditions on spending approved by Congress.
And just how many times have liberal judges blocked our President’s travel bans of countries known for Islamic terrorism.
Attorney General Sessions
Our Attorney General made the following statement:
When jurisdictions choose to return criminal aliens to the streets rather than turning them over to federal immigration authorities, they put the public’s safety at risk. San Francisco’s decision to protect criminal aliens led to the preventable and heartbreaking death of Kate Steinle. While the State of California sought a murder charge for the man who caused Ms. Steinle’s death—a man who would not have been on the streets of San Francisco if the city simply honored an ICE detainer—the people ultimately convicted him of felon in possession of a firearm. The Department of Justice will continue to ensure that all jurisdictions place the safety and security of their communities above the convenience of criminal aliens. I urge the leaders of the nation’s communities to reflect on the outcome of this case and consider carefully the harm they are doing to their citizens by refusing to cooperate with federal law enforcement officers.
The courts are responsible for stopping our President from protecting America’s citizens, which he is constitutionally commanded to do. The Congress is responsible for not following through with the policies of the President to protect American citizens from illegal invaders.
So, what do we do? Again, it’s up to the American citizens. We cannot sit idly by and hope that the few who care about the citizenry will be able to fight this alone. It is up to us, and again that means calling, writing and raising holy Hannah with the congress critters. Here are the numbers, please use them daily!
