Recently, San Francisco has taken its status as the preeminent sanctuary city to a new low. A few weeks ago, the city’s Board of Supervisors voted to stop the current practice of turning over illegal alien minors to ICE when arrested. Under the newly enacted policy, illegal alien minors will only be subject to deportation after being convicted of a felony. Even San Francisco’s own Mayor Newsom is opposed to the policy change, stating “the new law now makes it easier for illegal immigrants to commit crimes.”

But wait, there’s even more!

Not only won’t the San Francisco Police turn over illegal aliens they arrest, they won’t ticket or impound the vehicle of an illegal alien driving without a license or insurance either. Under yet another new illegal alien friendly policy, instead of impounding the vehicles of unlicensed and uninsured drivers, the city will release the car to another licensed driver and send the illegal alien on their way. Effectively, the official San Francisco police policy is that there is absolutely no negative consequence to driving without a license or insurance. This is not only bad immigration policy, but a major public safety concern.
