Hannity: 'It Was San Francisco's Sanctuary City Policies That Killed Kate Steinle'

A photo of murder victim Kate Steinle, right, is placed on an easel as her father Jim Steinle (second from left) prepares to testify about her murder during a hearing of the Senate Judiciary Committee on USA immigration enforcement policies, on Capitol Hill in Washington on July 21, 2015.

A jury on Thursday found an undocumented immigrant not guilty in the July 2015 death of Kate Steinle, a decision that reignited the debate over immigration policy.

He was convicted on the lesser charge of possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.

Since San Francisco remains a sanctuary city that gives safe haven to criminal illegal aliens, ICE officials will have to know the exact date and time that local law enforcement will release the illegal alien in order to detain him and ultimately deport him.

"It was San Francisco's sanctuary city policies that killed Kate Steinle", Hannity said. "I urge the leaders of the nation's communities to reflect on the outcome of this case and consider carefully the harm they are doing to their citizens by refusing to cooperate with federal law enforcement officers".

Kate Steinle (right) was shot and killed on July 1, 2015, near San Francisco's Pier 14.

"Countless innocent American lives have been stolen because our politicians have failed in their duty to secure our borders and enforce our laws like they have to be enforced", Trump said during a August 2016 campaign speech in Phoenix, Arizona.

A Mexican national, Zarate was a seven-time convicted felon who had been deported from the US five times before the shooting.

Watch the monologue above.

Sessions said: "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".

Zarate had claimed he found the gun used in the shooting wrapped in a T-shirt under a bench and that it went off accidentally, The Associated Press reported. Matt Gonzalez of the public defender's office said his client had never handled a gun and was scared by the noise, prompting him to fling the weapon into the bay, where a diver fished it out a day later. He had been deported five times before.

Steinle, her father and a friend were at the pier when a bullet struck Steinle's lower back and tore through her abdominal aorta, authorities said. She was a 32-year-old medical equipment saleswoman.

President Trump later signed an executive order to cut funding from cities that limit cooperation with US immigration authorities, a policy that a federal judge in San Francisco permanently blocked Monday. On April 15, 2015, Zarate was freed from the San Francisco County Jail.

This summer, the House of Representatives passed H.R. 3004, dubbed "Kate's Law" - a measure named for Steinle. "It's disconcerting", Brad Steinle told CNN's Anderson Cooper.
