Media Spin in the Wake of the Kate Steinle Verdict

Katz: "Sanctuary city policies are literal 'killers.'"

Jurors in San Francisco last week acquitted the illegal immigrant accused of killing Kate Steinle as she walked with her father on a crowded San Francisco pier of all charges except for felony possession of a firearm. 

Prosecutors had argued Garcia Zarate intentionally shot Steinle, 32, but Zarate's defense attorney said the shooting was accidental.

The jury's decision fueled outrage amongst most Conservatives and reignited debate over U.S. immigration policy, but predicatably, left-wing media outlets painted those who expressed outrage at Zarate's acquittal as 'white nationalists.'

WIBC host Tony Katz told his listeners it was time for rational people to stand up to so-called 'sanctuary cities' and their deadly policies.


These sanctuary cities attract people. They attract them in telling them to try and again and cross the border illegally. It attracts them by bringing them into their cities, and they have no way of tracking them. It puts an undue burden on police officers and courts, never mind putting the residents of those neighborhoods and cities and towns in absolute harm's way.

These sanctuary cities and policies are killers; actual and literal killers.
