Undocumented Immigrant Cited by Trump Found Not Guilty of Murder

HeadlineDec 01, 2017
 h13 immigrant not guilty

Back in the United States, an undocumented immigrant at the center of a high-profile murder trial used by President Trump to attack “sanctuary cities” has been acquitted of murder and manslaughter charges. Jose Ines Garcia Zarate was charged in the July 2015 killing of Kate Steinle on a San Francisco pier. He was in the United States after he had been deported to Mexico five times since first entering the U.S. as a juvenile. His attorneys argued he found the gun and it accidentally discharged, with the bullet ricocheting off the ground before striking Steinle. President Trump reacted on Twitter, calling the verdict “disgraceful.”
