SF Sheriff To Stop Holding Low-Level Inmates For Deportation

SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) San Francisco Sheriff Michael Hennessey said Friday he will soon begin releasing undocumented immigrants held in county jail for low-level offenses even if federal immigration officials request that they be held as part of its controversial Secure Communities program.

OK, Don, so what are your thoughts on this?

I actually watched the video and I think that separable issues are being conflated here:
  1. misdemeanor offenders being released
  2. illegal immigrant misdemeanor offenders being treated the same as legal immigrant misdemeanor offenders
  3. felons still being detained
  4. a local jurisdiction (SF County) opting out of complying with a Federal law and its enforcing agency
#1 and #2's conflation confuses the whole matter and reminds us of the sanctuary city mentality that illegal immigration is indistinguishable from legal immigration.

Re #3, some viewers of the issue refer to these misdemeanor offenders as rapists, etc. but they aren't demonstrated to be that. I'm not defending the illegals but it's important to perceive someone by their past deeds, not speculative ones.

#4 is awful because SF County dismisses Federal immigration law as if there is no basis for it at all. Why do those laws exist? Surely for no reason. We should just dispense with any border control at all as it's just a big waste of taxpayer funds... right?

I think it’s another example of California shooting itself in the foot and compounding the problems we have on illegal immigration, battling crime and addressing the economic crisis.

Some of these illegal aliens have committed felony crimes, but if our police departments release them before they can be identified by ICE using the national fingerprint program then they are not checked for previous criminal records and are set free in our society.

Tax payer money used to support illegal aliens families for food, shelter and medical is one of the contributing factors to our budget problems. They are in this country illegally and we can’t afford to pay for them.

Oh! That's a surprise coming from San Francisco - NOT!

Every public servant takes a vow to support and defend the Constitution of the United States and the constitution of their state. Clearly, REAL civics classes are in order in Baghdad on the Bay.

The worst part of when the Sheriff discusses the issue is how seductively plausible it is. He goes on about how the Sheriff's dept routinely releases misdemeanor offenders so as to assert that this is just standard practice. The fact that these people's very presence in the United States is illegal is one that doesn't seem to register as 'relevant' in his mind.

and we could all guess like Curmudgeon said, what city would be the first to do something like this? What a surprise!!!??

Ask me, you may not want to hear what I have to say on the subject, but anyone who is found guilty of anything other than a traffic violation that is in this country illegally needs to have the butts kicked right back to the country they deserted!!!!
