The family of Kate Steinle announced on Tuesday that they have filed a lawsuit against San Francisco Sheriff Ross Mirkarimi, the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency and the U.S. Bureau of Land Management, saying no one is taking responsibility for their loved one's death.
Kate Steinle's brother, Brad Steinle, and her parents, Jim Steinle and Liz Sullivan, announced the lawsuit on the steps of San Francisco City Hall.
"We are not a litigious family," Jim Steinle said Tuesday night on Fox News Channel's "The O'Reilly Factor."
The family is frustrated over a lack of movement to stop "sanctuary cities" from continuing to avoid cooperating with ICE by turning over illegal immigrants with criminal records, Jim Steinle said.
Kate Steinle died in her father's arms after being shot on a San Francisco pier in July.
Forty-five year old Mexican national Juan Francisco López Sánchez has been charged in her killing. He had been deported and returned five times and had a criminal record.
