SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - A jury may begin deliberations Tuesday on the fate of a Mexican man charged in the killing of a woman on a San Francisco pier _ a case that sparked a national debate on immigration enforcement. Prosecutors argue Jose Ines Garcia Zarate deliberately shot Kate Steinle while the defense says he was a hapless homeless man who found a stolen gun that went off by accident. At the time of the 2015 killing, Garcia Zarate had been deported from the U.S. five times.

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - A federal judge has permanently blocked President Donald Trump's executive order to cut funding from cities that limit cooperation with U.S. immigration authorities. U.S. District Court Judge William Orrick issued the ruling on Monday in lawsuits brought by two California counties, San Francisco and Santa Clara.

BERKELEY, Calif. (AP) - Relatives of six college students who died when a balcony collapsed in Berkeley, California, have reached a settlement with the owners of the apartment building and the company that managed it. Terms of the settlement were confidential.

WASHINGTON (AP) - The Department of Interior denies any wrongdoing after documents surfaced showing government staffers were forced to scramble to accommodate requests from Secretary Ryan Zinke's wife as she accompanied him on trips outside of Washington D.C. The documents include travel manifests and staff emails about trips to California and Alaska. They were released Monday by left-leaning, Montana-based Western Values Project.
