San Francisco deputies’ union takes on sheriff over immigration stance

by  |  published on July 17, 2015

071015_sf_sheriff_640The union for San Francisco sheriff’s deputies reportedly is taking on Sheriff Ross Mirkarimi over the release of an illegal immigrant now charged with the murder of a young woman — filing a complaint that slams a department policy barring communication with federal agents.

The San Francisco Chronicle reports that the complaint links Kathryn Steinle’s murder to a March memo that prohibited deputies from giving information about prisoners to immigration agents. The grievance, according to the newspaper, said the policy “recklessly compromises the safety of sworn personnel, citizens, and those who merely come to visit the San Francisco area.”

Steinle’s killing, allegedly by illegal immigrant Francisco Sanchez, has prompted a round of finger-pointing in San Francisco, a so-called sanctuary city. Sanchez, who had a lengthy felony record and already had been deported five times, was turned over to San Francisco by the feds in March on an old, outstanding warrant — but the sheriff’s office freed him the next month. Federal immigration officials say they asked to be notified prior to his release, but they were not.

    I for one hope the family can sue for $ 250 million in damages making an example out of a liberal San Francisco bull shit agenda breaking our laws condemning us to liberal laws and not laws of America.

    The sheriff’s should arrest this criminal Sheriff Ross Mirkarimi, and hold him responsible for the death of that woman. There should NOT be any so called sanctuary cities anywhere in my country. As for the ILLEGALS, the first time they enter my country ILLEGALY deport them, the second time just shoot them and be done with them. Don’t like my attitude, well I don’t like ILLEGALS.

    The Sheriff must be charged with dereliction of duty and actions reckless endangerment of the public as well accessory to murder for Ms. Steinle.

    Interesting. Per Wikipedia:

    “Ross Mirkarimi (born August 4, 1961) is the sheriff of San Francisco, California. Prior to being sheriff, he served on the San Francisco Board of Supervisors, representing District 5 from 2005 to 2011.

    Mirkarimi was elected sheriff in November 2011. He served from January to March 2012, at which time he was charged with domestic violence battery, child endangerment, and dissuading a witness in connection with a December 31, 2011 New Year’s Eve altercation with his wife, and Mayor Ed Lee suspended him from office pending an ethics investigation. Mirkarimi pleaded guilty to one count of misdemeanor false imprisonment. According to the San Francisco city charter, removing a public official for misconduct requires the vote of nine of eleven supervisors; only seven supervisors voted to remove Mirkarimi from his office and he was reinstated in October 2012.

    Mirkarimi is a co-founder of the Green Party of California. However, in March 2010, he became a Democrat.”

    The Sheriff of San Francisco has been convicted of a misdemeanor and a Democrat. Need more be said about law and order in San Francisco, in particular, and California, in general?

    They need to execute him this time so that he will not be able to return and he will not be released by a commie city. All state and federal funds need to be cut off to the city, the mayor and sheriff need to be arrested as accessory to murder and the city needs to change there policies immediately.

    The only way we are going to stop these Islamic terrorist is to have zero tolerance of Islamic terrorist. When we find our citizen in sympathy with this corrupt and evil movement they are stripped of their citizenship and put on a terrorist watch. Like a scarlet letter so everyone will be on the look out for them
    No more muslims can come to the USA. Close our borders period. If they can’t come in or go out surely we can hunt them down and deal with them accordingly. Then we must hunt them down in the middle east and destroy them completely, kill them all . For if you will let anyone live they will start up again.
    That may seem harsh but that is the only way to stamp out this evil bunch. meh

      curtmavi38 the problem is, if we do what you suggest,we become what they are and are no better than them,our actions should not reflect our fears,if we shut down the Border completely,then we play into there hands,remember those Nations that are not free,are those who keep their people bottled up behind fences and walls,we should better control our borders without closing ourselves away from everyone.the idea that we can just kill everyone we don’t like is crazy,what will we do if the rest of the world decides to turn the tables on us and treat us the same way,no we have to find ways to co-exist together,and stop imposing our will on other nations,through threats and intimidation.and embargo’s,America is not Lilly white as many think we are,we are a Nation comprised of people who have all the weaknesses of other Nations,no better or no worse,I know we think that we are blessed by God above all other nations,but is that really true,American exceptionalism is nothing but national pride,if we do not meet Yahweh’s terms for his blessings,them we are not blessed as we believe,and have been fed a pack of lies,materialism is not a test of Yahweh’s blessings and favor,but a sign of our own greed.—–Jim Hunt

    All this posturing could have been done before this poor woman got killed. Not impressed!! Just some more butt covering by a bunch of gutless losers who are paralyzed by supporting the adoption of PC ‘lovey…huggy’ feel good policies that always fail sooner or later. Don’t adopt the policy in the first place….usually if it sounds like a stupid idea….it is one!!
