12:01 pm
shooting. sal castaneda is live now with what he heard. >> reporter: good afternoon, gasia mikaelian. today's press conference did get emotional at times, and today's claim is the first step in filing a lawsuit if the agencies reject the claim. that's when a lawsuit could proceed in the death of 32-year- old kate steinley. the family holds three agency responsible, and the sanctuary city policy responsible as well. it was a shooting that captured the attention of the entire nation. kate steinle was gunned down by a mexican national who had been deported five times. the family says 45-year-old juan francisco lopez sanchez should have never been in the united states and should not have been released by the sheriff without being turned over to immigration officials. today the steinle family came back to san francisco to file a claim against sheriff ross, the bureau of land management and the department of immigration,
12:02 pm
and customs enforcement. >> you can come to san francisco next week, be walking with your daughter or son, and in a moment they could be taken from you. the failure to respond and make any changes says to me that what was done to kate was okay, that she was collateral damage. >> this is for accountability for public officials that we have voted for and put in office, not doing their job. this is for humanity. this is for the future. ours is gone. it's gone from us. but we want it better for the good of all. >> reporter: the steinle's say rather than taking responsibility for the incident, the three agencies have been pointing fingers deflecting blame. the sheriff has said his interpretation of san francisco's sanctuary city
