    Newsom vows to ignore immigration laws

    Yesterday Gavin Newsom, the mayor of San Francisco, declared that he would continue to keep San Francisco a sanctuary for illegal aliens. This includes preventing any city employees from participating in immigration raids, saying "I will not allow any of my department heads or anyone associated with this city to cooperate in any way shape or form with these raids. We are a sanctuary city, make no mistake about it." Presumably, this includes city police, whose job it is to enforce the law. Yet, looking at his comment closer, he states that he will not allow any city employees to even cooperate with those who are conducting the raids.

    It should be noted that ICE raids are frequently performed in order to catch those illegal immigrants who are already wanted for other charges. Perhaps Mayor Newsom isn't concerned with these other charges. The following represent only a fraction of the results of ICE raids over the past year:
    In addition to these local raids, ICE has had great successes throughout the country. For example, this month in Willmar, Minnesota ICE agents arrested 49 illegal immigrants in a raid, 18 of which had criminal convictions for crimes including sexual misconduct on a minor, DUI, domestic abuse, assault, and drug possession. Similar raids nabbing criminal aliens with similar convictions have occurred in this month alone in places like Atlanta, Michigan, Raleigh, Pennsylvania, San Diego, and elsewhere.

    ICE is clearly keeping the streets safer in these areas. If only Gavin Newsom would do his job and help to do the same here in San Francisco.

    We have more and more communities becoming sanctuary cities and I think it's a terrible trend. As you point out, there is much crime connected to illegals. One would think legal residents of these places would speak out.
