Typical sanctuary city nonsense.

Quote:
SAN FRANCISCO—District Attorney Kamala Harris said illegal immigrants who participated in a job program run out of her office deserved to graduate and have their drug conviction records cleared.

Harris' comments, which appeared Wednesday in the San Francisco Chronicle, stems from criticism she's faced about the Back on Track program, which the Los Angeles Times reported earlier this week included immigrants who didn't have authorization.

Harris said prosecutors tightened the standards of the program after learning one of the approximately seven illegal immigrants who participated had assaulted and robbed a woman. The other undocumented immigrants in the program followed the rules, she said.

Harris has acknowledged that letting illegal immigrants participate was a "flaw in the design" of the program, and says the issue was corrected when she learned about it, about one year ago.

Her office did not alert immigration officials about the undocumented immigrants. Harris said the Sheriff's Department, which initially arrested them, had that responsibility.

Ah,Yes.....immigration enforcement is always "someone elses job"....
What makes this dimbulb politician think that a sheriffs department in a sanctuary city would even bother to report an immigration violation ?

Harris, who is running for California Attorney General, says the program cuts back on recidivism and its one flaw was corrected as soon as it was identified.
It also sounds like she's in bed with a certain population of government officials seeking illegal alien voters to put her into the office of AG in the next election.
