Jose Ines Garcia Zarate had been deported five times. He kept coming to San Francisco
because he knew it was a sanctuary city, and that the authorities wouldn't be actively looking for him. In 2015, he concluded a 46-month prison sentence . Released on March 26, 2015, he was taken to San Francisco
pending a warrant for a drug charge; he was released three months prior to the shooting, despite Immigration and Customs Enforcement trying to detain him. He stole a gun from a federal agent's car, and ended up shooting Kate Steinle
, who was walking on a pier in San Francisco
with her father Jim. She was killed and Zarate was recently acquitted in her murder . It's a disgrace to justice.
