Attorney General Jeff Sessions on Friday slammed the acquittal in the Kate Steinle murder, saying that "it's time for this country to get its head on straight" because sanctuary cities "should not be protecting criminal aliens."

"They come into the country unlawfully, and then cities hide that individual and don't let them be turned over so they can be properly deported," Sessions told Tucker Carlson on Fox News.

Sessions said that Jose Ines Garcia Zarate, 45, who was acquitted by a San Francisco court jury of murder and other charges in connection with Steinle's 2015 shooting death, will eventually be deported.

"That will be his ultimate sentence," the attorney general told Carlson. "We will do everything possible to make sure that happens.

"There are some potential other charges that can be brought against him before being deported and released.

"We think he should face every charge brought against him," Sessions said.

"You can be sure our Department of Justice is working right now to bring any charges that are appropriate."
