ICE seeks to deport immigrant acquitted in Kate Steinle case

ICE seeks to deport immigrant acquitted in Kate Steinle case | 30 Nov 2017 | U.S. immigration officials announced Thursday that they will seek to deport Jose Ines Garcia Zarate, the undocumented immigrant acquitted earlier in the day of murder in the 2015 shooting death of 32-year-old Kate Steinle in San Francisco. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) released a statement Thursday night blasting San Francisco for not cooperating with federal immigration authorities before the deadly shooting, arguing the city could have prevented Steinle's death. "San Francisco's policy of refusing to honor ICE detainers is a blatant threat to public safety and undermines the rule of law," ICE Deputy Director Tom Homan said in the statement. "This tragedy could have been prevented if San Francisco had simply turned the alien over to ICE, as we requested, instead of releasing him back onto the streets."
