Not You, Not Me, Blame The Guy Behind The Tree
Events are proceeding fast and furious concerning the illegal alien smuggling ring organized and operate by the City and County of San Francisco in conjunction or to the benefit of drug gangs based in the East Bay, http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/article.cgi?f=/c/a/2008/07/01/BAEC11I71H.DTL&tsp=1. Mayor Gavin Newsom and Juvenile Probation Director William Siffermann have claimed that what has happened was not their responsibility, although they have stopped some of there actions in the alien smuggling conspiracy. Newsom blames the Juvenile Court judges. Problem is, once a sentence has been imposed by a judge in juvenile court, the City and County of San Francisco takes custody of the juvenile alien. As a matter of fact, there are now 11 illegal aliens (I suspect that number is much larger, but then, crime is still dominated by native born Blacks in San Francisco.) in custody. The Mayor wants to figure out what to do. What should be done is that Immigration and Customs Enforcement should present a case for prosecution of Siffermann, who appears to be the brains behind the smuggling operation, to the United States Attorney's Office for the Northern District of California for various violations of Title 8, United States Code, Section 1324 Bringing In and Harboring Certain Aliens. Depending on what he knew and when he knew it, Newsom is liable as well, and could be held liable for violation of 18 USC 371 Conspiracy and 18 USC 2, 3, and 4. Lets see if the United States Attorney for the Northern District, Joseph Russonieli, has the courage to indict a powerful politician. Or maybe we can get Patrick Fitzgerald transfered here. It does not look good, as Immigration and Customs Enforcement is virtually appologizing for existing and not really enforcing the law. Witness the appologetic statement from ICE agent Greg Palmore, "Our job is to uphold the nation's immigration laws....Although San Francisco is a sanctuary city, it's a problem whenever someone attempts to evade the law. ... Our law does not allow us to turn a blind eye to any individual who has come into this country illegally." Does ICE now recognize sanctuary status?
