Mexican man whose killing of woman on San Francisco pier launched national immigration debate found not guilty

Jurors found Jose Ines Garcia Zarate not guilty of murder on Thursday in the killing of Kate Steinle on a San Francisco pier in a case that touched off a national immigration debate. Zarate had been deported five times and was wanted for a sixth deportation when Steinle was fatally shot in the back in 2015. Garcia Zarate didn't deny shooting Steinle and said it was an accident. Before the shooting, the San Francisco sheriff's department had released him from jail despite a federal immigration request to detain him for deportation. Its "sanctuary city" law limits cooperation with U.S. immigration authorities. President Donald Trump cited the case during his campaign in a bid to show the country needed tougher immigration policies.

Hernandez is one of thousands of Nicaraguans who have been living and working in the U.S. and protected, since 1999, under temporary protection status (TPS). The Trump administration recently ended that protection for Nicaraguans.
