Voters Reject Steinle Verdict, Favor Punishing ‘Sanctuary’ Lawmakers
Wednesday, December 06, 2017
Few voters agree with a San Francisco jury’s decision clearing an illegal immigrant repeat criminal of killing 32-year-old Kate Steinle, and there’s sizable support for punishing lawmakers who protect criminal illegals from federal immigration authorities.
The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that only 20% of Likely U.S. Voters agree with the jury’s decision that Jose Ines Garcia Zarate was not guilty of murder, involuntary manslaughter and assault with a deadly weapon. Forty-nine percent (49%) disagree with that verdict, while 31% are undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here .)
