On Thursday, Fox News host Sean Hannity took a serious approach towards the murder of Kate Steinle case, warning Americans of potential dangers which erupt as a result of “sanctuary city” laws.
The Steinle case revolves around shooter Jose Ines Garcia Zarate, who is a five-time deportee, and an illegal alien as well, who was found guilty of firing the gun that killed Steinle. In 2015, Steinle was walking with her father on a pier in San Francisco and was shot by a bullet shot by Zarate himself. Although many tried siding with Zarate, noting the bullet hit Steinle by accident, this is no excuse whatsoever, and Hannity just made that loud and clear.
“It was San Francisco’s sanctuary city policies that killed Kate Steinle,” said Hannity. “They did not obey the law. They followed these ridiculous liberal policies, and because of their stupidity and their ‘form of justice’ and caring more about the rights of illegal, convicted felons, tonight Kate Steinle is dead and her family has received no justice.”
Hannity also played a video of Zarate’s attorney “taking a shot at the president,” and then carried on analyzing the shooting, explaining the government had requested that Zarate is “handed over to federal authorities” three months prior to the shooting, but the city of San Francisco wouldn’t comply.
“What good comes out of a sanctuary city law?” Hannity asked. “People who never respected our laws and our sovereignty come into this country again and again and again and again and again, six times after being deported, after all those felonies, and an American young woman is killed with her father walking on a pier in San Francisco?”
