Months ago it was reported that San Francisco which is a sanctuary city, created ads to invite illegal immigrants to their city and give them taxpayer funded services. They have also been protecting convicted juvenile offenders from arrest.

I think you changed the title, which changes the meaning of the entire story.

They are NOT inviting convicted illegal juveniles, they have protected them from arrest though. Protecting by taking them back to their country, is not inviting. PLease read the article before posting.

Taking it a step further, it has recently been reported that one of San Francisco's regular practices have been to use city funds- taxpayers money- to escort convicted juveniles back to their home countries to aid and abet the prevention of their arrert
So they deport them, basically, which probably in return saves Taxpayers tons of money on imprisonment.



Now I know people are going to jump all over San Francisco and sling insults at the general populace, liberals, rich etc...

However, people have a choice in their lives, you can live amongst hysteria and paranoia of being policed, or you can say hello to your neighbor and live amongst peace. San Franciscans want to live in peace and equality, there is nothing wrong with that.

A hispanic person can actually walk the streets of San Francisco without everybody gawking at them wondering if they are illegal or not. To me that is peaceful, it limits discrimination and hysteria amongst the people.

You read the story and watch to the video

Pat Dollard provides the whole San Francisco ad, inviting illegal immigrants to the city,
at his site which should be seen because it is the Mayor of San Francisco, Gavin Newsom, that speaks in the ad offering safe haven to illegal immigrants and as the story progresses there will be direct quotes from him about recent events.
