Jose Ines Garcia Zarate, in the United States illegally, was found not guilty of murder in the death of 32-year-old Kate Steinle two years ago. President Trump has long referred to the case as a reason for building a wall between the United States and Mexico.

KQED reporter Scott Shafer (@scottshafer) talks with Here & Now's Robin Young about the case and its implications.

This segment aired on December 1, 2017.
