WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congressman Clay Higgins (R-LA) released the following statement in response to the acquittal of Jose Ines Garcia Zarate for the murder of Kate Steinle in June 2015.
“And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in Hell.” – Matthew 10:28 KJV
“In this world or the next, justice for Kate Steinle will be done.”
“The acquittal of a convicted felon who had been deported from the United States five times is a disgrace to our justice system. As a nation, we must enforce the law and crackdown on the sanctuary cities that harbor these criminals. Securing our borders and combating illegal immigration are essential to keeping our communities safe. That’s why I’m battling in Congress to support frontline defenders with the manpower and resources needed to fortify our southern border.”
