Outrage as San Fran cops face discipline for turning at-large illegal over to ICE, as criminal walks free

In the latest sign that the world has been flipped on its head, police officers in San Francisco are under investigation for turning an at-large illegal immigrant over to federal immigration agents.

In the same city where Kate Steinle lost her life to an illegal immigrant who was deported five times and was facing deportation, but was released by police after being arrested because of sanctuary-city laws in place there.

Police were responding to a report of a stolen car when they ran Pedro Figueroa-Zarceno and found he was facing a deportation order, according to the San Francisco Chronicle. He would later be turned over to federal immigration agents.

Figueroa-Zarceno was subject to deportation for failure to appear at an immigration hearing in 2015 and from a 2012 conviction for drunken driving, the Chronicle reported.

The San Francisco Police Department has since launched an investigation to determine if any officers involved are subject to discipline for a possible breach of local sanctuary-city laws.

“We want to make sure that the police officers who committed this offense and obviously violated the law themselves are held accountable,” Jeff Adachi, a public defender, told KGO.

Taking the absurdity a step further, the department celebrated the illegal immigrant’s release back into the community — Figueroa-Zarceno, who has lawyered up, was released on bail Wednesday after being held for two months.

“We are happy and relieved that Mr. Figueroa-Zarceno has been restored to his family,” SFPD spokesman Sgt. Michael Andraychak said, according to the Chronicle.

“It is the policy of the San Francisco Police Department to foster trust and cooperation with all people of the city and to encourage them to communicate with SFPD officers without fear of inquiry regarding their immigration status,” Andraychak added. “We are aware of concerns this incident has raised with some members of our community.”

It’s unlikely those concerns include the potential threat the illegal immigrant may represent.

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials characterized Figueroa-Zarceno as being one of the “at-large foreign nationals who meet the agency’s enforcement priorities, including convicted criminals and other individuals who pose a potential threat to public safety.”

The reaction from social media users centered around a common theme: ‘The world has gone crazy.”

    I wonder if they try to do something to the cops who actually turned the guy to ICE. If they do, the cops could bring some kind of federal case. No these sanctuary cities are part of the problem. Federal tax dollars should be denied those who refuse to follow the law. It will be up to the city to support each one they allow to stay. And if they’re picked up, deportation automatically.

      They will under a Conservative administration.

    [email protected] @SFPD I wonder how many citizens this guy will have to kill before idiots in San Francisco decide maybe he should be deported.’

    let him start with the mayor and the supervisors (the boundaries of sf county and the city of sf are the same) that voted sf to be a sanctuary city!

    Why isn’t the federal government suing San Francisco for passing laws in defiance of federal law? The feds sued Arizona for passing laws supporting federal immigration laws, based on the idea that only the federal government can formulate immigration law. Why is San Francisco allowed to make laws in this area?

    Well you can be sure I will never leave any of my body parts in SFO ever especially my heart. This is one “F’ed” up environment with one to many prius owners.
