Senator Gaines Rips California's Sanctuary State Laws After Kate Steinle Verdict

Friday, December 1, 2017

Senator Ted Gaines (R-El Dorado) issued the following statement regarding the not guilty verdict handed down in the infamous Kate Steinle case.

“San Francisco’s sanctuary city policy killed Kate Steinle. Her killer illegally crossed into the United States at least five times and finally settled in San Francisco because he knew that city would protect him from immigration enforcement.

“Jose Inez Garcia Zarate, the illegal alien whose bullet ended Kate Steinle’s young life, is now going to be deported for the SIXTH TIME. When he steals across the border again I’m sure he’ll run right back into the lawless, loving arms of San Francisco or someplace else in our Sanctuary State, because he knows he’ll get the protection here that Kate Steinle couldn’t.”
