On Thursday night, not only was Kate Steinle’s killer Jose Ines Garcia Zarate acquitted of homicide charges in a San Francisco court, he was also cleared of involuntary manslaughter and assault with a deadly weapon.
Zarate, a 45-year-old illegal immigrant and felon who was deported five times, sparked a national firestorm over “sanctuary cities.” Steinle’s death constituted a significant part of the border security plank of Donald Trump’s presidential platform.
Trump supporters, fresh off the travesty of a Benghazi terror mastermind being cleared of murder charges, are incensed by the ruling.
Conservatives, Republicans, and other Americans are likewise bewildered by the unjust ruling, as can be shown by #KateSteinle being the number one trending topic on Twitter.

Justice for #KateSteinle
The left would call for a federal civil rights case if this had been the other way around and she had shot the illegal
So what's next AG #Sessions?

Very lucky that Kate Steinle’s murderer didn’t use the wrong pronouns. That sort of extremist behaviour is not tolerated in California #KateSteinle

Can we lock this murdering lunatic up for breaking our immigration laws 5 times?
Kate Steinle would be alive if we had a wall and didn't have sanctuary cities #Katesteinle

A California jury decides it is not a crime for an illegal alien to gun down an American citizen on American soil. #katesteinle

The California legal system just told the world that all you have to do is say you didn't mean to shoot someone with a gun, kill them, and you won't be guilty of murder or manslaughter. #KateSteinle

Furious about the verdict of Kate Steinle's killer? Blame liberal democrats who put murdering illegal immigrants before the American citizens they are supposed to represent. We need the wall NOW! #KateSteinle

Unlike most conservative dominated causes, Twitter has not yet put Kate Steinle on stealth shut-down. No matter, social media platforms are not going to dictate Americans’ concern over Kate Steinle’s death, the sham ruling of a San Francisco court, or the border security issue.
After all this ugliness and heartbreak, let’s take a moment to remember what this issue is all about.
"Kate was beautiful, kind, happy, caring, loving and deep in faith. Kate had a special soul, a kind and giving heart, the most contagious laugh, and a smile that would light up a room."#KateSteinle #KatesLaw #SanctuaryCity #SteinleVerdict https://t.co/5XsrgsAGoo
