Trump Slams Verdict in Kate Steinle Death in Tweet

Twitter users turned to the hashtags #BoycottSanFrancisco and #kateswall to demand construction of the U.S. -Mexico border wall that Trump has called for.

Rokita also supported "Kate's Law" - legislation that would boost penalties for illegal immigrants who were previously deported and that was named after Steinle.

The case became a lightning rod for Trump and others in the push to halt illegal immigration and penalize so-called sanctuary cities, such as San Francisco, which limit their assistance to federal immigration authorities. "Kate Steinle's family found out this week in San Francisco - Nothing - absolutely nothing", Pirro said.

Saturday, former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee reacted to a San Francisco jury finding Jose Ines Garcia Zarate not guilty for the death of Kate Steinle, attributing Steinle's "unnecessary" death to the city's sanctuary city policy.

Since then, the city consistently has been an early adopter of some of the most immigrant-friendly policies nationwide, and it takes pride in serving as a safe place for religious and gender minorities, non-English speakers and people in the country illegally.

Zarate of murder and manslaughter charges after a weekslong trial. The president calling it a "disgraceful verdict" in a tweet on Thursday (November 30).

Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull lauded the postal survey process, in which more than 80 per cent of the electorate participated. Though same-sex marriage has been illegal in Australia, the couple has been wearing engagement rings for seven years.

"His exoneration is a complete travesty of justice". He was convicted on a charge of being a felon in possession of a firearm.

Zarate's attorneys argued Zarate had found a gun that accidentally discharged, and the bullet ricocheted off the ground before hitting Steinle.

In a new warrant unsealed just days ago, the Department of Justice now seeks to have Garcia Zarate arrested for violations of the terms of his 2015 release, according to CBS News. He is awaiting sentencing on that charge.

Zarate was released from jail in 2015, despite a federal immigration detainer request.

Cardoza said a better case could have been made to convince jurors that Garcia Zarate had a "reckless disregard for human life" and to convict him of second-degree murder.

In a statement after the verdict, Sessions said San Francisco officials' "decision to protect criminal aliens led to the preventable and heartbreaking death of Kate Steinle".
