Rep. Steve King (R-IA) says he will do his part in honoring 32-year-old Kate Steinle — whose illegal alien killer was acquitted of her murder — by blocking “every form” of amnesty that the GOP-led Congress attempts to push.
After five-time deportee and seven-time felon illegal alien Jose Garcia Zarate, also known as Juan Francisco López-Sánchez, was not convicted of the murder of Steinle — despite previously admitting to shooting and killing the woman while she was walking on a pier with her father — King called the decision “Sickening!”
“The illegal alien who, no one disagrees, killed Kate Steinle is found NOT guilty in sanctuary city, San Francisco. Sickening!” King wrote.
King also vowed to oppose any amnesty for illegal aliens that the Congress may attempt to pass by the end of the year.
“I will spare no effort to do my own killing-of all amnesty in every form!” King continued.
Since September, when Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced the end of the President Obama-created Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program which shielded nearly 800,000 illegal aliens from deportation, the Republican establishment and Democrats have scrambled to push multiple amnesty bills for illegal aliens.
Pro-American immigration reformers with the Center for Immigration Studies said in a statement in the wake of Steinle’s killer being acquitted that Congress should be laser-focused on passing legislation that protects Americans, rather than illegal aliens.
“Addressing the problems in our immigration system that allowed all this to happen should be a top priority for Congress, not rushing to pass a DACA amnesty, as some members have called for,” spokeswoman Marguerite Telford said.
Federal immigration officials at the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency have committed to deporting — for the sixth time — the illegal alien who caused Steinle’s death, as Breitbart News reported.
Steinle was killed while walking with her father on a pier in San Francisco in 2015 when the illegal alien shot her. Steinle pleaded with her father to not let her die, but she soon passed away in her father’s arms.
Steinle’s death has not only caused a national debate on immigration policy, but the killing has galvanized a grassroots movements of pro-American immigration reformers and Angel Parents — the family members of Americans killed by illegal aliens — to demand a crackdown on illegal immigration and a legal immigration policy that puts the jobs, needs, and lives of Americans first.
