SF asks to ignore federal law
Thu, 09-02-2010 - 6:56pm


"Until now, the Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency, known as ICE, has rebuffed San Francisco's contention that participation in the program is voluntary. San Francisco Sheriff Michael Hennessey, a vocal opponent of the program, has said repeatedly that as head of the city's jail system he does not want to participate....

Hennessey, backed by a Board of Supervisors' majority, believes that Secure Communities conflicts with San Francisco's sanctuary city law, which limits how city workers can aid federal immigration officials."

How ironic that at the same time the democrats are going after Az claiming the Fed has full authority in such matters (while SF and LA call for boycotts of Az) that SF asks for permission to ignore federal policy.

Do you really think that Nancy Pelosi is going to let the DOJ go after her town? Not that they would...but really, you can't be shocked by this gross display of hypocrisy, now can you?

I certainly wish that Obama and the DOJ would quit making Arizona the enemy here. He is doing more to harm the country than any president I can remember. He has done an unbelievable job of driving a HUGE wedge between the country. Instead of working with states, he just sues them. He doesn't tell them that he is suing them....Arizona had to find out when Hilary Clinton blabbed it to the leader of ANOTHER COUNTRY! He wastes tax payer money to push his agenda and is so arrogant he doesn't even care what the American people think or want.

I cannot wait until November 2010 AND November 2012!
