Just In: Illegal Alien Who Murdered Kate Steinle Just Received Some Devastating News

Jose Garcia Zarate - Kate Steinle

Millions of Americans were angered last week by a judge’s decision to acquit illegal immigrant Jose Garcia Zarate of the murder of Kate Steinle two years ago in San Francisco. Now, another angered American who appears to be a GOP Congressman, fired back with a legislation that will put an end to the sanctuary cities.

Fox News reported that Indiana Rep. Todd Rokita is set to introduce a bill on Monday that would threaten huge fines and prison time for elected officials accused of sheltering illegal immigrant criminals from deportation. This is one of the most aggressive pieces of legislation to date aimed at sanctuary city policies, going beyond the Justice Department’s threat to cut off grants to those jurisdictions.

“Politicians don’t get to pick and choose what laws to comply with,” Rokita said. “Americans are dying because politicians sworn to uphold the law refuse to do so.”

Rokita’s “Stopping Lawless Actions of Politicians (SLAP) Act” would hold state and local lawmakers criminally responsible for refusing to comply with federal immigration enforcement efforts. The legislation would subject violators to a $1 million fine and up to five years in prison if they are convicted.

“It’s time the federal government gets serious about enforcing immigration laws and holding politicians accountable who conspire to break them,” said Rokita.

Rokita is also a supporter of “Kate’s Law,” which was named after Steinle and boosts penalties for illegal immigrants who were previously deported. Steinle was fatally shot back in 2015 on a pier in San Francisco, a Sanctuary City.

President Donald Trump spoke out immediately after Zarate was found not guilty to slam the verdict.

“A disgraceful verdict in the Kate Steinle case! No wonder the people of our Country are so angry with Illegal Immigration,” Trump wrote. “The Kate Steinle killer came back and back over the weakly protected Obama border, always committing crimes and being violent, and yet this info was not used in court. His exoneration is a complete travesty of justice. BUILD THE WALL!”

“The jury was not told the killer of Kate was a 7 time felon. The Schumer/Pelosi Democrats are so weak on Crime that they will pay a big price in the 2018 and 2020 Elections,” Trump added.

Rokita’s bill follows a similar attempt in Texas to punish local officials who ignore federal requests to hold and then potentially turn over suspects for possible deportation. That law is the subject of a federal court challenge. Hopefully, Rokita’s bill will succeed in being passed to law, so these nutheads who defend criminal illegals will be held responsible for the crimes on Americans too.
