A sanctuary ordinance in San Francisco is protecting young drug dealers from federal deportation in what a U.S. prosecutor is calling a "gaming of the system" for illegal immigrants.
The San Francisco Juvenile Probation Department has been shipping underage crack dealers to group homes in an effort to shield them from the feds under the city's 1989 "City of Refuge" ordinance, which prohibits city employees from informing Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents of illegal immigrants.

So the Free Republic of San Fransisco is condoning drug dealing on its streets! Why not, they condone everything else that is anti-social and counter-culture!

Very interesting, Steve

Not wanting to sound uncaring and harsh but isn't it strange that the leaders of San Francisco as well as the entire State of California feel "independent" and not obligated to respect or honor the laws of this country but as soon as they have a problem (Fires or Earthquakes, for example) . . . they immediately cry for HELP and MONEY plus lots of SYMPATHY from the Federal Government.

HOW CONVENIENT! ! ! ! !

I have long advocated that California be granted independence from the Union and be allowed to become "The Independent Republic of California"! "Awnold the Governator" can become the first President or Monarch, whatever seems more appropriate for "The Independent Republic of California". When they become TIRC (rhymes with "jerk!), they can print their own worthless money on hemp paper (not a bad idea!); the marijuana plant will be their cash crop and the symbol on their flag; and the US treasury will have one less "peoples commune" suckling at the teat of the US taxpayers! Of course, the Capitol will be the Uber-Republic of San Fransisco!

Speaking as an ex-trucker, I never thought of SoCal, and especially Orange County, to be anything close to "normal"!

To you and GuyP:

The last time I spent more than 24 hours in SoCal was 1989 so I suspect things have changed since then------for worse.

Orange County is a Republican strong hold, very conservative, and except for towns like Anaheim, Santana( Santa Ana), and a couple others very White and Asian.
If thats what you mean by normal, anyways.

I love California. Probably will never be able to buy a house, probably will spend half my life in traffic, but I love it here. Doubt Ill be one of those fleeing for Phoenix or Vegas.

My last time in SoCal was in 1992 and things were a bit "hinky" then! I can't imagine that the situation has improved in the intervening 16 years!

Things have gotten a lot better since 1992, which to me was probably the worst year in recent history.
