The high cost of illegal immigration and protective sanctuary city policies
The high cost of illegal immigration has been given center stage with the gruesome murders last month of a father and his two sons shot near their home while returning from a family picnic.
Jim Gilchrist, Founder of the Minutemen Project assembled a group of protestors outside city hall to demand the resignation of San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom, whose lax city polities give aid and comfort to such violent offenders. Gilchrist also denounced the mayors of Phoenix, Denver, Los Angeles for presiding over sanctuary cities. Phoenix Mayor Phil Gordon is currently the target of a citizen recall.
It turns out that the brutal road rage murderer and illegal alien gang member, Edwin Ramos, was the beneficiary of the city’s long-standing practice of shielding from deportation, illegal alien juveniles who commit felonies. The San Francisco Chronicle reports that Ramos, now 21, was convicted of assault and an attempted robbery when he was 17, but in keeping with the city polices, officials did not turn him over to federal immigration authorities.
Flinging mud in the eye of the city’s citizens, Newsom’s spokesman said, “This policy has been met with controversy for 20 years. The mayor stands by the spirit of the sanctuary city policy.”
Ramos is now being held on three counts of murder in the June 22 deaths of Tony Bologna, 48, and his sons Michael, 20, and Matthew, 16.
