Frequent Flyer Felons

I swear, you just can't make this stuff up.

From the San Francisco Chronicle - An effort by San Francisco to shield eight young Honduran crack dealers from federal immigration officials backfired when the youths escaped from Southern California group homes within days of their arrival, officials said Monday.

The walkaways are the latest in a string of embarrassments for city officials who are protecting illegal-alien drug dealers from federal authorities and possible deportation because of San Francisco's 1989 declaration that the city is a sanctuary for undocumented immigrants.

My first question is, why were the eight juvenile cocaine dealers in a group home and not in a California Youth Authority facility? The answer will astonish you, or it may not. For the past few years the City of San Francisco has been flying illegal immigrants convicted of drug dealing back to their country of origin rather than turning them over to federal immigration authorities. Just to make sure you are not dreaming, stop and pinch yourself. Did you feel that? Good.

That's right, the taxpayers of San Francisco are paying to fly dope dealers, in this country illegally, back to their home countries to avoid arrest on immigration charges. The 8 youth drug dealers were at the 'group home' because the flights out of the country were being reported in the news and the City had to come up with another way to hide these drug dealers from authorities. It seems selling crack and heroine is ok, however enforcing our immigration laws is a travesty of justice that cannot stand. Cities like San Francisco and other 'sanctuary cities' are not just turning a blind eye to traffic enforcement and other petty crimes when it comes to illegal aliens, now it seems that no crime, no matter how hanis, warrants a call to immigration officials.

What do the environmentalist in San Francisco think of this? How big is the carbon footprint of a Honduran crack dealer if the city flies him back home every time he gets arrested? Considering the City's stance on greenhouse gas emissions, one would think incarceration would at least be more carbon neutral.

Seriously, the monthly cost at group home the crack dealers walked away from is $7,000 per youth, I believe you can get a suite at the St. Francis Hotel for the same price. In a city with so many problems to solve you might think flying crack dealers around the western hemisphere would be a low priority, but you would be wrong. In the eyes of liberals, the drug dealers are the good guys who need protection at all costs, and the US Citizenship and Immigration Service are the bad guys, plain and simple.

What will it take to make Americans wake up and stop the nonsense of these 'sanctuary city'? When one of the young crack dealers walks away from a group home and murders someone, will the citizens of San Francisco take responsibility? Don't bet on it.
