The family of a woman shot and killed at San Francisco’s Pier 14 last month said Monday they plan to sue city and federal officials.

San Francisco resident Kathryn “Kate” Steinle, 32, a Pleasanton native, was fatally shot on July 1 while walking with family members on the Pier in broad daylight.

Within an hour of the shooting, police arrested Juan Francisco Lopez-Sanchez, an undocumented immigrant who had been deported five times and has seven prior felony convictions, including four involving narcotics.

The shooting and arrest have triggered a national debate on San Francisco’s Sanctuary City policy, which limits cooperation between local law enforcement and federal immigration authorities.

Lopez-Sanchez, a Mexican national, had been released from San Francisco County Jail in April despite a request from U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Service to detain him so that ICE field agents could deport him for a sixth time.

  1. I hope Ms. Steinle's family sues them for 3.2 million dollars and the negligent thugs go

    1. The taxpayers foot the bill, not the individual which is something that should be changed in order to stop this nonsense.

  2. The taxpayer there allows these ass clown politicians to make the rules. Make them pay dearly. Plus I bet it would take a year to find a decent San Francican.


    1. The beautiful city by the bay, at least it used to be. :)
