San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom Says City Will Ignore Immigration Laws

Bookmark and Share

Mayor Gavin Newsom has said that San Francisco would ignore any immigration laws put in place that criminalizes illegal aliens. The first time this occurs I hope that the mayor is put in jail for refusing to enforce federal laws. In this day and age with the flooding of America with illegal aliens, for a single man in a position of power, to decide that his city should ignore any attempts by the federal government to crack down on the problem is outrageous.

Instead the mayor would rather saddle his city's residents with all of the taxes and burdens that come with illegal immigration including: crime, health risks due to lack of inoculations, the further overcrowding and destruction of the education system, the closing of hospital emergency rooms and traffic congestion.

Who does this man think he is? Isn't this mayor the same one who ignored the California Constitution over gay marriages? Why yes, yes he is. Newsom definitely deserves the boot for his continued ignoring of the laws of the state and the federal government.


Mayor Gavin Newsom said Thursday that The City will not comply with any federal legislation that criminalizes efforts to help illegal immigrants.


Newsom ... appeared with a group of elected officials on the steps of City Hall to support immigrants, “documented as well as undocumented.”Newsom also signed a resolution sponsored by Supervisor Gerardo Sandoval, and passed unanimously by the Board of Supervisors, urging San Francisco law enforcement not to comply with criminal provisions of any new immigration bill.

“San Francisco stands foursquare in strong opposition to the rhetoric coming out of Washington, D.C.,” Newsom said. “If people think we were defiant on the gay marriage issue, they haven’t seen defiance.”

It is not the first time San Francisco has weighed in on the immigration issue. In 1989, the Board of Supervisors made San Francisco a “City of Refuge.” The ordinance forbids city resources from being used to enforce federal immigration laws or to gather or disseminate information regarding the status of residents of The City. The Board of Supervisors passed a resolution reaffirming the ordinance in January.
