Americans everywhere are outraged today after illegal alien Jose Ines Garcia Zarate was found not guilty of murdering Kate Steinle in San Francisco even though he confessed to the crime. On Thursday night, Fox News host Sean Hannity devoted his monologue to blaming Steinle's murder on San Francisco's sanctuary city status.
Hannity noted that Zarate had been released from a San Francisco jail about three months before the shooting, despite a federal request that he be held for deportation.
"It was San Francisco's sanctuary city policies that killed Kate Steinle," Hannity said. "They did not obey the law. They followed these ridiculous liberal policies, and because of their stupidity and their 'form of justice' and caring more about the rights of illegal, convicted felons, tonight Kate Steinle is dead and her family has received no justice."
He said Americans should be asking a very important question: "What good comes out of a sanctuary city law?"
He pointed out that Zarate was a seven-time felon who had been deported from the U.S. five times before the fatal shooting.
"People that never respected our laws and our sovereignty come into this country again and again and again and again and again."
The miscarriage of justice that occurred in the Steinle case was a direct result of the leftwing's pro-illegal immigrant agenda. This case is particularly tragic because of how preventable Steine's murder was.
Had the city of San Francisco not blocked U.S. immigration authorities from doing their jobs, Zarate would never have been in the U.S.
There are reportedly more than 300 sanctuary cities in the U.S., that are protecting over 17,000 illegal aliens from deportation.
The main danger of illegal immigration is that the people entering into the U.S. are not vetted in any way. This means that while the majority are people of goodwill, criminals like Zarate can, and sadly do, slip through the cracks.
The Steinle verdict should come as a wakeup call to the U.S. It is time to get rid of sanctuary cities so that nothing like this ever happens again.
