Nancy Pelosi once again proved that she perfectly represents San Francisco by blasting ICE for “indiscriminately” arresting “scores of hard-working, law-abiding immigrants” in their recent raids to enforce deportations of criminal illegal aliens. She said the Trump Administration “continues to brazenly target the cities that refuse to bow to its blatantly bigoted anti-immigrant and mass deportation agenda. The people of the San Francisco Bay Area will continue to oppose these cowardly attacks, and we will remain open to the patriotic immigrants who are the constant reinvigoration of America.”
ICE responded that they had arrested about 150 individuals, all here illegally, and about half of whom “also have criminal convictions in addition to their immigration violations, including convictions for assault/battery, crimes against children, weapons charges and DUI." If that's what Rep. Pelosi calls "law-abiding," I'd hate to meet someone whom she actually considers to be a criminal.
Of course, if San Francisco and other “sanctuary cities” (or more accurately, “criminal havens”) want to stop forcing ICE to stage raids to round up these criminals, they could start cooperating with federal law, the way the Constitution requires. They could turn them over to ICE when they are arrested locally, instead of turning them loose on the streets to prey on actual hard-working, law-abiding, patriotic Americans, both legal immigrants and native-born. But I guess thinking that San Francisco’s political class would even consider doing that makes me a “Dreamer.”
