Actor James Woods.

James Woods, an Academy Award-nominated actor and outspoken conservative, reacted bluntly and boldly to the acquittal of the illegal alien who shot Kate Steinle, stating on Twitter that the jury's incredulous decision is "a turning point in American history," and adding, "build the wall."

On July 1, 2015, while walking with her father on a pier in San Francisco, 29-year-old Kate Steinle was shot and killed by Jose Garcia Zarate, an illegal alien and convicted felon who had been deported from the United States five times. Zarate claimed that he accidentally shot the gun, which he said he found under a bench. On Nov. 30, 2017, a jury acquitted Zarate of all murder and manslaughter charges. 

















The jury's decision was denounced by many observers, including President Donald Trump. 

In a Tweet on Nov. 30, James Woods said, " #KateSteinle will leave an enduring legacy. The stunning depravity of her murderer's acquittal will be a turning point in American history. The lines are drawn. #BuildTheWall."

During his 2016 presidential campaign, Donald Trump pledged that, if elected, his administration would build a large defensive wall along the U.S.-Mexico border to help stop illegal immigration and protect the United States.
