Though a daughter was killed by an illegal immigrant in Sanctuary City San Francisco, the parents have no recourse.
Parents were attempting to hold Sanctuary City San Francisco accountable for an avoidable death.
But their complaint has been denied.
According to CBS Sacramento,
San Francisco cannot be held liable for a slaying by a man who was in the country illegally and had been released by sheriff’s officials despite a request by immigration officials to keep him behind bars, a federal judge said.
U.S. Magistrate Judge Joseph Spero dismissed wrongful death claims filed by the family of 32-year-old Kathryn Steinle against the city and Sheriff Ross Mirkarimi. The judge, however, allowed a negligence claim against the federal government to move forward.
