A sheriff in sanctuary city San Francisco apologized for allowing ICE agents to interview an inmate, presumably to get more information on how to combat illegal immigration.
“My staff made a mistake and I have to hold myself accountable,” San Francisco Sheriff Vicki Hennessy told the San Francisco Chronicle. “I apologize on behalf of the department. I feel embarrassed by it. I’ve taken steps to make sure it never happens again.”
Jail officials violated a California law that says inmates must receive a consent form before the interview and must be informed that they can have an attorney present if they want. Neither occurred before this particular inmate was interviewed by ICE.
The San Francisco police policy goes further, by banning ICE from having any access to inmates (who are presumably illegal aliens).
After coming under fire, San Francisco Sheriff Vicki Hennessy said she felt bad, and said she believed “[ICE was] testing our defenses and they found some weak points.”
Typically, cooperation between law enforcement agencies in different cities, states, and branches of government is encouraged to solve or prevent crimes. It happens all the time in murder cases, kidnappings, terrorism, etc.
But when it comes to illegal immigration, local police in sanctuary cities are forbidden from helping federal ICE agents because liberals don’t want to stem the tsunami of illegal immigration into the United States. Observers say this is because Democrats want to import illegals into the country to grow their party.
Things have gotten so out of hand that Democratic mayors and legislators have even tipped off illegal immigrants about impending ICE raids. This is literally “obstruction of justice.”
This happened last week in California, where Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf issued a warning on Twitter, saying ICE was “preparing to conduct an operation in the Bay Area, including Oakland…within the next 24 hours.”
In March 2017, Massachusetts state representative Michelle DuBois tipped off people on Facebook, warning them of an impending ICE raid.
DuBois followed up with detailed instructions on what to do if ICE comes to your door because you’re an illegal alien who has committed a felony (ICE usually does not get involved for illegals who aren’t felons).
While liberals think they’re doing a good deed by helping illegals stay unlawfully in the United States, they blithely ignore the fact that many illegal aliens commit crimes. Just ask Kate Steinle’s family.
Kate, 32, was strolling on a pier with her dad when she was shot to death in 2015. In a shocking verdict, a San Francisco jury acquitted illegal immigrant Jose Ines Garcia Zarate in the fatal shooting. The jury was not told that Zarate was a 7-time felon when deciding his verdict.
Zarate, who had been deported five times before murdering Steinle, told authorities he specifically returned to San Francisco because it was a sanctuary city.
In 2014, illegal alien Luis Bracamontes shot two Sacramento-area police officers to death in cold blood. At trial, Bracamontes told the judge his only regret was that he didn’t kill more Americans.
“Only thing that I f—en regret is that I f—en killed two,” Bracamontes laughed. “[I wish I] had killed more of the motherf—ers!”
