Posted on 09/07/2013 8:13:17 PM PDT by chessplayer
San Francisco County is set to become the first in the nation to make it illegal for law enforcement officials to detain illegal immigrants "solely on the basis of immigration status."
Supporters of the ordinance, as it is written, reportedly have a "veto-proof majority," even though law enforcement authorities want the ordinance amended "to see convicted violent felons, sex offenders and those with prior weapons possession convictions exempted from the law."

I wonder how Mrs. Bologna feels about this.
it’s tough to say your law means anything when you selectively enforce it... even when you have the law breaker in custody and the offense known
at that point, those not enforcing the law are effectively creating new law to contradict existing law
Send all the illegals there. Bus them. Fly them. Load them on a boat and cruise them there.
how do you not stop and detain people who don’t belong in your own country?!?!
God help tis’once great nation. we have freaking morons running things.
I agree. we have tons of them at every Home Depot entrances.
Des Moines, being at the intersection of I-35 and I-80, gets a lot of homeless, drifters, bums and wackos. So Polk County puts them on buses to Florida, one way. Or at least they did when I was at the unemployment office there.
San Fransicko will pass this ordinance, which will then spread to neighboring counties, and across the state. This is nothing less than the wholesale surrender of a sovereign American state to a colonizing invasion force.
Might as well send them all there.
Then San Francisco will be as unlivable as Los Angeles.
We lost Los Angeles decades ago. SanFran will not be different.
Oh yes, SF has lots of Asians, but virtually all of them are hardworking people, educated and/or dedicated to their childrens’ educations.
Good. San Fransicko is already a pervert magnet. Let it double as an illegal alien magnet.
Sounds good to me.

After all, he argued that the Federal Government sets immigration policy, not states.
According to Holder, we can't have a hodge-podge of immigration laws.
Naked surrender to invading forces.
Los Angeles County never passed an ordinance making it illegal to arrest people for being in the country without proper documentation.
I know, I know, it's just a formality, but it does make a difference. San Francisco is effectively casting aside the very notion of state sovereignty, and welcoming the world into our country, regardless of their origins or condition.
It's the end result of having insisted for so long, that all cultures are equal. These people actually hate their own country, its history, its language, and everything it has stood for throughout its existence. The lofty and timeless precepts that America was founded upon, mean nothing to such people.
As California is increasingly filled with illiterate foreigners who care nothing for this country, and who are little more than blood sucking parasites, those liberals are getting what they asked for. The fools are throwing away something that took dozens of generations of hard work to build, all for the sake of fleeting feel good politics.
Yes, a tragedy. I love CA but could no longer live there after 1994. Well,maybe in Mendocino, but that’s a difficult place for reasons other than illegals. Now stuck in the far less beautiful state of WA, relegated to dreaming of the “land I love.”
I feel lucky that I raised my kids in CA when it was beautiful, when their public high school was ranked 8th in the nation and when it was safe to let them go to the beach for bonfires with their friends after dark.. Most assuredly CA has lost it’s ranking, it’s safety factor, it’s thriving economy.
Do it, do it, do it - so we can keep buying one way tickets to SF for illegals!
Give the State of California their economic death wish!!!
"Welcome, Mexican criminals on the run! Please feel free to prey on our citizens!"
I’ve read that SF is one of the least diverse cities in the country due the high cost of living. If true, ther would be no need to deport illegals since they all live outside the city.
I remember that California well. I was born there in in '53 and only left in 2005. If it weren't for our children, my wife and I probably would have tried to hold on, but I felt we had no right to choose California's awful future for them.
I flew from San Fran to somewhere one afternoon. Seat mate was an uberlib Catholic seminarian whose mission in life was to help the poor downtrodden sickly frightened illegals from Mexico. He was so compassionate, so sincere. Nothing I could -- or you could-- say would dissuade him from his cause. And he had a point. The ARE frightened, abused, poverty stricken people.
But they are not OUR people. We can only take in so many immigrants. And we need to know who they are and where they are. Period.
Last week, someone posted a chart here, wish I had kept it. Showed the number of available jobs in the US. Then a column showing the number of Americans looking for jobs. Twice as high as the jobs available. Then it showed the number of immigrants OBozo wants to let in. It was maybe 8x as many people as the Americans already looking for jobs.
So the "compassionate ones" really need to be handed a pamphlet on the reality of letting in more people and taking care of them. How about the American Citizens who need help? Could we possibly persuade the Compassionate Class to help them?
Maybe. What would it take?
You know, Windflier, I love FR and have for years. So many bright people discussing so many important issues. But perhaps we need a sort of Martha Stewart how-to approach to training well-meaning people to help citizens. Help do what? Get jobs, train for jobs, support hungry American families, counsel them, pray for them-- all the services given to illegals are things we need for our own.
Thinking of North Idaho, a not very prosperous area, where citizens are in the lumber business for the most part. Then those trees are loaded with Japanese-made equipment onto flatcars to be shipped to (probably) China to be made into furniture or whatever , then shipped back to the US, polluting the sea as it travels back and forth, and then sold back to us. Why in the HELL can't people near the lumber business be the ones who craft the furniture and whatever else the end products are? Instead of collecting welfare bennies and food stamps? They'd be happier doing something constructive and the employed citizens would be happier NOT supporting them.
why don't they learn? Who can teach them? North Carolina had a fabulous furniture business using trees actually cut there.
Thank for listening, Windflier. I just needed to think that through for myself. I'm kind of a can-do how-to person. A little tired of just analyzing and complaining.
Why doesn’t San Francisco ,leave all immigration problems for the city to take care of and let them go without any help from the feds.
