Complete outrage and disappointment is how most Americans, and President Donald Trump are feeling today amid the verdict in the Kate Steinle trial.
A San Francsisco jury acquitted an illegal immigrant on Thursday for the murder of 32-year-old Steinle.
Though the 2015 shooting death of Kate Steinle became a flashpoint in an intense national debate over immigration, the issue was never addressed inside the courtroom where a jury acquitted a Mexican national of murder and manslaughter — a verdict Trump called a “complete travesty of justice.”
A disgraceful verdict in the Kate Steinle case! No wonder the people of our Country are so angry with Illegal Immigration.

From the outset, the judge barred any mention of Jose Ines Garcia Zarate’s immigration status or the five times he was arrested and deported to Mexico before he came back across the border.
