---Sheriff Mike Hennessey says soon misdemeanor suspects will be reported to Immigration and Customs Enforcement as well.

"Everyone booked in the jail will be reported to ICE, starting in June," he said.

While this policy has some city leaders worried about an end run around the sanctuary status, San Francisco's Mayor says the policy was never designed to protect criminal behavior. Federal officials say from October to March, nearly two million fingerprints were submitted for a cross check resulting in 212 thousand matches and 56 thousand immigration arrests or holds, many of those detainees are expected to be deported.---

Gavin found his nut sack - yay! And I wonder why they wrote 212,000 and 56,000 that way - did they want to make the numbers seem trivial to someone just skimming the article?

Interesting, very interesting.

Methinks that SF is fixin' to doff the 'Sanctuary City' label in practice, if not in name.

I think this is huge news - SF has been a cornerstone of criminal illegal alien sheltering. If they flipped the script, I can only hope LA has a hope of doing the same. From the looks of it, even the LA Times is getting with the program.

I have opined for a while now when California turns AGAINST illegal immigration---------it will be sudden and savage. If anything; such may eclipse what is now occurring in Arizona.

I'm amazed actually. Wonder if it has anything to do with the budget problems CA is having. Seems like a good way to cut entitlement spending actually.
