UPN Bay Area Bay City News Wire SF SUPERVISOR TO INTRODUCE RESOLUTION ON IMMIGRANT ID CARDS 06/20/06 8:30 PDT
SAN FRANCISCO (BCN)
San Francisco Supervisor Gerardo Sandoval will hold a news conference today at 1 p.m. at City Hall to announce a resolution regarding ID cards for immigrants that he will introduce at today's Board of Supervisors meeting.
The resolution will call on the California Congressional Delegation to oppose efforts in the U.S. Congress to prevent cities from accepting ID cards issued by other countries, Sandoval said in a statement.
Sandoval reported that a recently introduced amendment to an Appropriations Committee bill in the U.S. Congress prohibits the use of foreign photo ID cards as a valid form of identification.
A measure previously sponsored by Sandoval and passed by the Board of Supervisors requires city departments to accept photo IDs issued by other countries. The Matricula Ordinance allows for a Mexican ID card, the Matricular Consular, and other out-of-country ID cards to be used only for identification purposes, and not to obtain citizenship or public benefits or to vote, Sandoval said.
The news conference is scheduled to take place on the Dr. Carlton B. Goodlett Place steps of City Hall. The Board of Supervisors meeting is scheduled for 2 p.m. today.
I sent this to Drudge, I hope he'll feature it. And yes, I hope they do refund the anti-terror money as they hate the police and blame all crime on the SFPD.
I'm so glad we left there!
I'm sure 'frisco benefits from several "pots" of federal monies that it will be more than happy to part with to throw this little hissy fit.
This is the same twit who blocked San Francisco's bid to house the USS Iowa because it's a "symbol of American arrogance". He's about as pro-America as Castro.
LOL......Calling ALL CRIMINALS/TERRORISTS !!!....... please *obtain* your foreign ID's and move to San Fran, ASAP !!!!
In the words of Victor Davis Hanson:
The alien from Mexico chooses which American laws he finds convenient. He wants our border police to leave him alone until he becomes lost in the desert or is attacked by robbers.
The employer expects trespassing laws to be enforced to keep vagrants off his premises, but then assumes that the same vigilant police will ignore the illegal status of his cheap labor force.
And does the city council that orders its policemen not to turn over arrested illegal aliens to the border patrol similarly allow townspeople to ignore their municipal tax bills?
Ignoring the law is not only hypocritical and anarchical; it also creates cynicism.
Once we as a nation choose to ignore our keystone laws of sovereignty and citizenship, the entire edifice of a once unimpeachable legal system will collapse.
Because they have the power of the purse---and control your tax dollars---public officials who represent you are required to be bonded. Sandoval and the Board of Supervisors might have incurred imprisonment, fines, or other criminal penalties for violating the terms of bonding by misusing tax dollars.........specifically by aiding and abetting the activities of illegal aliens, and failing to report that crimes were being committed.
PARTIAL LIST OF IMMIGRANTS' FEDERAL CRIMINAL FELONIES
1 - Use of illegal ID or documents
2 - Federal income tax evasion
3 - Re-entry into USA after deportation
4 - Obtain/Operate vehicles with illegal ID
5 - ID theft/fraud - Social Security fraud
6 - Knowingly gaining employment fraudulently
7 - Recruiting other illegal aliens workers
8 - Transporting illegal aliens
9 - Harboring &/or housing illegal aliens
10 - Undermining US national security
11 - Registering/Voting using fraudulent documentation
12 - Conspiracy to violate federal statutes
13 - Uttering false statements to public officials
14 - Obstructing law enforcement
Sandoval and the Board of Supervisors and public employees on the government payroll might have lied on insurance bonding applications, and may have filed false bonding applications and/or insurance claims. Similar penalties apply to insurance organizations.
Now, say public funds went missing and the public official failed to get bond coverage; the state would have no way to recover that money other than restitution through a criminal prosecution. If, it is determined a public official broke the law by failing to apply for bond coverage, that could be an actionable offense.
Public entities that mandate bonding include: Municipalities, counties, townships, school districts, ambulance districts, volunteer fire departments, community college districts, public universities, transit authorities, landfills, sewage treatment facilities, public works maintenance facilities, airports.
Concerns here center on instances when elected officials allowed government agencies to misuse tax dollars-----allowing illegal using phony documentation to get government benefits, welfare, food stamps, to fraudulently vote in elections for tax-exempt public bond issues...........this is an example of fiduciary negligence, and could violate the state's bonding regulations, and the requirements of the bonding carrier.
Now, if a public official with bonding had previous financial problems---perhaps a bankruptcy or a job loss for financial improprieties, etc---that they failed to reveal to bonding agents, that might subject them to legal penalties.
Go for it San Franciscans. Other FReepers should check it out in your area.
