    San Francisco City Attorney Dennis Herrera is demanding that Nevada reimburse California cities and counties for treatment of about 500 indigent psychiatric patients who were given one-way bus tickets to the Golden State in recent years. Those costs include about $500,000 that Herrera says San Francisco spent on medical care, housing and other aid for 20 people shipped here in a practice sometimes called Greyhound therapy.

    Jihad watch ^ | April 28, 2013 | Robert Spencer
    And the defense attorneys want Osama bin Laden's name excluded from the proceedings, even though Mustafa Kamel Mustafa was an al-Qaeda operative. How did a preacher of Islam get the crazy idea that Islam mandated killing unbelievers? Doesn't he know it's a peaceful religion, and that only greasy Islamophobes think otherwise? "US defends arrest of Egyptian Islamic preacher, says bin Laden’s name belongs in NY trial," from the Associated Press, April 28: NEW YORK — Osama bin Laden’s name should not be banned from the terrorism trial of an Egyptian Islamic preacher despite claims by defense lawyers that it would...

    SACRAMENTO (Reuters) - The California Senate on Thursday passed a bill supporters dub the "anti-Arizona" law, which seeks to shield illegal immigrants from status checks by local police and challenges Republican-backed immigration crackdowns in other U.S. states. The Democrat-led state Senate voted 21 to 13 for the California Trust Act, which blocks local police from referring a detainee to immigration officials for deportation unless that person has been convicted of a violent or serious felony. The bill has the backing of about 100 immigrant rights groups, police chiefs and mayors. It has already passed the state Assembly in a 47-26...
  • The Sanctuary State: Jerry Brown Signs a Trio of Bills on Behalf of Illegal Aliens

    Stand With Arizona ^ | 10-10-2011 | John Hill
    by John HillStand With Arizona It is hard to overstate the stunning embrace of lawlessness represented by three bills signed by California Governor Jerry Brown this past weekend. Brown on Saturday signed three bills that directly champion illegal aliens. Together, they put the state so far on the side of illegals (and against legal taxpayers), that California now has no legitimate rival for the title of "The Sanctuary State", and should consider changing their official motto accordingly. Facing a midnight deadline for sign several controversial bills, Brown avoided a public signing ceremony for these unpopular bills. He waited until the...
  • MontCo welcomes illegals, as neighbors crack down (Md. liberals love illegals)

    The Washington Examiner ^ | 2010-04-02 | Hayley Peterson
    Montgomery County is opening its doors to illegal immigrants as its neighbors around the Washington region crack down on them. While counties across the area are slamming their doors shut to illegals through federal enforcement, Montgomery County's communication with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials is limited to a weekly fax of names. And now the county is fighting an effort to crack down statewide. The county's Department of Corrections sends the name of every inmate detained on charges of violent crime — without regard to their immigration status — to ICE weekly, according to county spokesman Patrick Lacefield. "If...

    America is falling apart. Literally. From highways to bridges to plumbing to telecommunications, we are not keeping up with our national maintenance chores. Our highways are crumbling. Just maintaining them as they are would cost up to 40 cents a gallon more in gas taxes over the next five years. And that would do nothing to meet the increased demand; highway travel and hours stuck in traffic have both grown by about 25 percent in the past 10 years. Remember that bridge that collapsed in Minneapolis last summer? More than one-quarter of U.S. bridges -- including one-quarter of Oregon's --...

    WILLAMINA (Oregon)- At a special council meeting called for 7 p.m. Thursday at city hall, Willamina will consider declaring itself an "illegal alien free zone," serving as a warning to those without legal papers that they aren't welcome. Councilor Paul Delaney broached the idea at the council's March 13 meeting. The council voted 4-2 to convene a special meeting for that purpose, with the majority consisting of Delaney, Vernon Mosser, Daron Pond and Lewis Younger, the minority of Pat Howell and Kevin Nortness. Delaney doesn't hold out much hope of success, despite the show of support for a special session,...
