A terrible travesty of justice occurred in San Francisco last night. America woke up this morning to learn the devastating verdict in the Kate Steinle case. Her killer, Jose Ines Garcia Zarate was found not guilty and the shocking decision has set off a massive immigration debate.

Now thousands of citizens are flooding Twitter with a hashtag campaign to show their anger and disappointment. #BoycottSanFrancisco began trending today as people vow to not travel to the sanctuary city or buy goods and services there.


Zarate is a five-time deported Mexican man. San Francisco’s sanctuary policies allowed him to be released again onto the streets where he shot and killed 32-year-old Kate Steinle. The killing focused attention on that policy which many cities and states around the country have implemented as well.

The reactions have been swift and vicious over the verdict. Journalists, politicians, celebrities, and average citizens are shocked. The boycott San Francisco movement is just one way that people are demonstrating that.

Other chose to insult and ridicule those that are upset. Shannon Watts, founder of gun control group Moms Demand Action turned the debate to guns, stating;

“The best way to honor #KateSteinle and protect the hundreds of Americans who are shot and killed or injured every day in America is to keep guns out of the hands of dangerous people. Why are we more upset that she was shot by an immigrant than that she was shot and killed???”

It should be noted that Kate was shot by Zarate using a gun he had stolen from a law enforcement officer’s car.

Yet somehow, Zarate has avoided justice and Kate’s memory and her family have been failed by 12 people sitting in a jury box.

If this was a police officer accused of killing a citizen who had been found not guilty, Black Lives Matter and the rest of the social justice warriors would have taken to the streets by now to riot.

That is not and never has been the answer in these situations. Now concerned and law-abiding citizens must protest the legal way and place hope in the administration to implement change so these things cease to happen in our country.
