The Family of Kate Steinle Files Lawsuit Against U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement


The family of deceased Kate Steinle has filed a federal lawsuit against U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement. The suit, which seeks unspecified damages, names the city and county of San Francisco, former county Sheriff Ross Mirkarimi and the United States “for their failures to perform mandatory duties and/or for the unconstitutional and/or negligent acts and/or omissions of their officers, officials, agents and/or employees.” Kate Steinle was shot to death by 45-year-old Juan Francisco Lopez-Sanchez -on a San Francisco pier last summer. Juan Francisco Lopez-Sanchez is an undocumented immigrant illegal alien and a repeat felon who has been deported five times to Mexico.

The fatal shooting of Kate Steinle on a San Francisco pier last summer — allegedly at the hands of an undocumented immigrant deported five times from the United States — became a focal point of an angry national debate over illegal immigration.

On Friday, her family filed a federal lawsuit against U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, San Francisco County’s former sheriff, the federal Bureau of Land Management and the man who allegedly fired the deadly shot.

“Kate’s death was both foreseeable and preventable had the law enforcement agencies, officials and/or officers involved simply followed the laws, regulations and/or procedures which they swore to uphold,” the lawsuit said.

On the evening of July 1, 2015, Steinle was walking on a busy pier of the Embarcadero with her father when there was a single popping sound in the air. The 32-year-old medical device sales representative was shot in the chest, a bullet piercing her aorta, according to the lawsuit.
Her father, James, held her in his arms. “Help me Daddy,” were her last words to him, the lawsuit said. She died later at a hospital.

I so hope the family of Kate Steinle wins this lawsuit against San Francisco for their “sanctuary city” policies!!!

      This case never fails to bring tears to my eyes. All of those named in the suit need to be incarcerated for failure to uphold their constitutional duties.

      This is the result of the Democrat/Socialist parties policies of looking for additional votes to keep themselves in power.

      The Congress of the United States should specifically address any federal dollars going to these sanctuary cities with the intent to name them and stop all federal funds.
