reaction. of course the twitter elephant in the room is president trump who campaigned on building a wall at least partly on the back of kate steinle's death and tonight he had this to say:the president tweeted..."a disgraceful verdict in the kate steinle case. no wonder the people of our country are so angry with illegal immigration.you may recall...the kate steinle shooting became a flashpoint in the national debate over immgration.president trump discussed the case several times during the presidential campaign..stressing the need for a new wall along mexico border to keep undocumented immigrants out." and ice deputy director tom homan offered this statement."san francisco's policy of refusing to honor ice detainers is a blatant threat to public safety and undermines the rule of law. this tragedy could have been prevented if san francisco had simply turned the alien over to ice, as we requested, instead of releasing him back onto the streets. it is unconscionable that politicians across this country continue to endanger the lives of americans with
