Despite the week drawing to a close, there’s been quite a bit of news in the last 48 hours. The illegal alien who shot Kate Steinle was acquitted of murder (see JUST IN: Verdict on Illegal Immigrant Who Killed Kate Steinle. It’s Not Good…). That was last night. Then the DHS said it wanted to deport him for the sixth time because why not (see Illegal Immigrant Found ‘Not Guilty’ in Kate Steinle’s Murder to Be Deported). That was this morning. Now this happened:
NEW: Dept. of Justice has filed an arrest warrant for Jose Garcia Zarate, the man acquitted of murder in Kate Steinle's 2015 San Francisco shooting death.

Surprise! It’s all a bit confusing because the Department of Homeland Security said one thing and now the Department of Justice is doing this thing. So many departments, yet not enough justice. Until now.
So what does all of this mean? Before any armchair lawyers screech “but double jeopardy!” — apparently the warrant is for a “supervised release violation.” According to the fine print…
There is an existing federal detainer that requires this defendant be remanded into the custody of US Marshals Service to be transported to the Western District of Texas pursuant to the arrest warrant.
Boom. In other words? San Francisco screwed this crap sandwich up enough already. The DOJ believes it’s time for someone else to take the reins.
Goodspeed to them.
