If you’re an illegal alien with a penchant for violent crime, San Francisco is the place you want to be. Not only is the landscape breathtaking and the weather comfortably mild year round, but this iconic liberal enclave is also a “sanctuary city” that provides refuge for people who live in the United States illegally, even going so far as to offer get-out-of-jail-free cards to any and all illegals who commit crimes there.
One of the most recent examples of this was the acquittal of an illegal immigrant murderer by the name of Jose Ines Garcia Zarate. Despite confessing to the 2015 murder of Kate Steinle as she walked on a busy San Francisco pier with her father, Zarate was declared to be “not guilty” of this crime. The only crime the jury convicted Zarate of committing was felony possession of a firearm, staying true to the city’s anti-gun reputation.
The shocking announcement of the jury’s decision was quick to make national headlines, illustrating how “sanctuary” status has turned many formerly great cities into cesspools of crime and lawlessness. And San Francisco, as desirable as it might seem to some, is certainly no exception.
“The jury of six women and six men considered charges against Garcia Zarate that include murder, assault with a deadly weapon and being a felon in possession of a firearm in the death of (Kathryn) Steinle, a 32-year-old Pleasanton native and San Francisco resident,” local news affiliates reports.
Defense attorney in this travesty of a case had the gall to threaten President Trump and Vice President Pence
Zarate’s lawyer in the case is fully aware of the fact that millions of law-abiding Americans are absolutely outraged over the ruling, which has allowed his illegal Mexican alien client, who just so happens to be a five-time deportee and seven-time convicted felon, to once again be turned loose on society. But rather than sympathize with them, he dug in his heels and actually lobbed accusations and threats against President Trump and his cabinet.
“For those who might criticize this verdict – there are a number of people who have commented on this case in the last couple of years; the Attorney General of the United States and the President and Vice President of the United States,” stated Matt Gonzalez, Zarate’s defense attorney.
“Let me just remind them: They are themselves under investigation by a special prosecutor in Washington D.C. and they may soon avail themselves of the presumption of innocence beyond a reasonable doubt, so I ask that they reflect on that before they comment or disparage the results of this case.”
Gonzalez sure has a lot of nerve making such statements after shamelessly fighting for the release of his convicted criminal alien client. He’s now got a whole lot of blood on his hands, as does the city of San Francisco which, had it done its job in reporting Zarate to the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency, this murder never would have happened in the first place.
What San Francisco is communicating to the world with this whole saga is that it would rather harbor criminal aliens who don’t even belong here in order to maintain its image of “tolerance” and “political correctness,” than protect the innocent, law-abiding citizens who live there legally. This is the nature of “sanctuary” zones in general, a full list of which is available through the Center for Immigration Studies (CIS).
“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,” commented Attorney General Jeff Sessions about the case. “San Francisco’s decision to protect criminal aliens led to the preventable and heartbreaking death of Kate Steinle.”
