ELDER PATRIOT – If you want to experience cutting edge progressivism then San Francisco is the place for you. San Franciscans continue to push rationalization to heretofore-unfathomable limits.
It’s not enough that the natives of the “Fog City” have voted to use their own hard earned money to feed, house, cloth and provide medical care for people they have never met and who have little to offer other than mowing lawns, washing dishes and flipping burgers.
Those may all be necessary and honorably jobs but overpaying to get those jobs done makes little sense unless you’re a progressive.
But it gets even crazier. In an inexplicable display of self-loathing San Franciscans rewarded an illegal immigrant from El Salvador for breaking U.S. immigration law because he experienced some inconvenience as a result of his illegal actions.
And, how inconvenienced was the guy? How about $190,000 worth?
What happened to warrant such a sizable payout? The illegal alien was turned over to ICE in accordance with federal law after he was apprehended.
That’s right everyone complied with federal law. However, Frisco has it’s own law restricting their police from assisting ICE in any way.
According to CBS affiliate KPIX 5 a spokesman for the Office of San Francisco City Attorney Dennis Herrera, John Cote made this statement, “San Francisco has strong policies in place to encourage victims and witnesses to report crimes without fear of being deported, which include our sanctuary ordinance. These policies are designed to foster respect and trust between law enforcement and residents to ensure our communities are safe. The City, including the Police Department remains committed to them.”
Coté insisted that, “this proposed settlement is a fair resolution for all of the parties involved.”
Seriously? Fair to whom?
Does anyone remember how much the citizens of San Francisco anted up to compensate Kate Steinle’s family after she was murdered by a different illegal alien? Zip. Zero. Nada.
This isn’t about progressives seeking to balance the scales of justice or to compensate victims though the progressive rank and file imbeciles may want to believe it is.
It’s about putting a very expensive brick on those scales so that illegal aliens continue pouring across our borders to advance the Left’s war on our borders, language and culture.
