Default Study finds 500,000 illegal aliens in San Francisco area alone

I don't understand why nothing is being done about this?

It’s even more disturbing when you consider the abysmal track record of our government in “estimating” the number of illegals. If they estimate 500,000, chances are, they number closer to 1 million or more.

The policies of sanctuary cities. Obviously the taxpayers and voters of the city must support such sanctuary policies or they would vote out those who institutionalize it.

One way to cut the spending at the federal level is to cut off all funding to cities with sanctuary policies that clearly enable the violation of federal immigration law enforcement.

People generally get the government they deserve. The Governator didn't do squat and Gov. Brown hasn't spoken out about it either has he? Call that a clue.

This is the primary reason the state of California is NOT too big to fail and should never be given a financial bailout by the American taxpayers.

Yet when that same government is designing quotas, you guys can simply not get over how awesome they are.

Your """Study"" is ridiculous, San Francisco is a city of 800,000 people you are telling me that 2/3rds are illegal. Since about half are Chinese we would really need to beef up our border with China Have you ever even been to San Francisco? Illegals means Chinese, Russians and Koreans

Uh, what? What does whether they are Chinese, Russian or Korean have anything to do with it? Also, the border to the South still needs to be secure.

Great way to make a state & country go broke is giving free aid & money to criminals.

I hope he/she doesn't mean the whole population because San Francisco's population isn't 50% Chinese. If he means that half the illegal immigrants are Chinese then, yeah, I want to see that proff too. Just to keep things from being posted that aren't true.
