It looks like the DOJ is going to file Federal charges against the Kate Steinle killer and get him to serve time before he is deported.
The Justice Department is arresting Jose Inez Garcia Zarate, the Kate Steinle killer. They wish to try him for whatever crimes they can because they fall under federal jurisdiction.
It will be interesting to see Leftists respond to the DOJ. They’ve used the federal courts to reprosecute civil rights cases when the states did not give them the results they wanted. Will they now be concerned about double jeopardy?
Fox News reports, “DOJ files arrest warrant for illegal immigrant acquitted in Kate Steinle case.”
The Department of Justice unsealed an arrest warrant Friday for Jose Inez Garcia Zarate, the illegal immigrant acquitted Thursday in Kate Steinle’s murder trial.[…]
The arrest warrant was originally drafted in 2015 and amended this week to include violations related to the charges of a felon in possession of a firearm, involuntary manslaughter and assault with a deadly weapon, all of which were filed after the defendant’s initial arrest, according to Friday’s warrant.
Officials at the Department of Justice told Fox News that there is an existing federal detainer that requires Zarate to be remanded into the custody of the U.S. Marshals to be transported to the Western District of Texas pursuant to the arrest warrant.
After the verdict, U.S. immigration officials announced late Thursday that Zarate would be deported.
“Following the conclusion of this case, ICE will work to take custody of Mr. Garcia Zarate and ultimately remove him from the country,” U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement said.
