Sanctuary cities

Donald Trump stirred up a hornet’s nest with his campaign announcement.  Said he could build the greatest wall ever built to keep the illegal immigrants out.  Well, all hell broke loose with that one.  But, since he’s riding at 24% right now, it can very easily be argued a LOT of people agree with him.

Count me in as one of those.  The reason why is very simple.  I’ve worked in Mexico before.  There are lots of wonderful, very hard working people there.  But that’s the rub.  If they are good hardworking people, then they have no real reason to leave.  What we get are the ones who can’t find work in Mexico.  Some of those are the good, honest, hardworking people of Mexico.  A LOT, are not .  If they have felonies and other convictions in Mexico, working in the US is just as legal for them as working in Mexico.  It takes very simple logic to figure out that the people who can’t get a job in Mexico for legal reasons, but can in the US because of bizarro sanctuary laws, will do just that.

San Francisco is all over the news right now because of that very, very, stupid idea.  Someone who can’t get a job in Mexico because of their felony convictions, was working and living in San Francisco and protected by local San Francisco laws, and ridiculously liberal politics.  This is the town that launched Nancy Pelosi to her political heights.  They are now on the front cover of most media defending their decision to protect an illegal who have been deported something live five times and wound up killing a totally innocent  young lady.  The reason is very simple, they are a sanctuary city.  Get this, convicted felons are allowed to roam freely in this cities, as long as, they are here illegally.  Got that?  If you are a US citizen, whether immigrated legally or naturally born citizen, you go to prison.  If you’re not, you get a free pass.  All we had to do to get that guy off the street was to make him an actual citizen.  Then he would have been worthy of prison.  As it was, he’s here illegally, so he got a five time free pass to do as he pleased.  Now that he’s killed someone, and since he’s been on national news, he might stay in jail for a while.  Frankly, being San Francisco, I’d be surprised if he did.

Think that’s a fubar arrangement?  Think San Francisco’s unique?  Dig this:

Feel safe now?  I don’t live anywhere near any of those places.  I’m just concerned that my governor, who absolutely worships Obama and the liberal elite, will try to pass it before he goes out later this year.  LUCKILY for us, we have the opposition party running the chambers.
