Legal Immigrant Sues San Francisco

This ought to put the liberals in San Francisco in a quandary.

A San Francisco illegal immigration opponent has sued the city’s police chief and police commissioners for failing to comply with a state law that requires officers to tell federal authorities about all suspected noncitizens who are arrested on drug charges.

Charles Fonseca, a 70-year-old Portola district resident who came to the United States from Nicaragua at the age of 9 and filed the lawsuit May 4, said he opposes amnesty for illegal immigrants, especially those who break the law after they get here.

Notice how they demonize him:

City Attorney Dennis Herrera, whose office will defend the city against Klehm and Fonseca‘s lawsuit, said through a spokesman Thursday that he is confident in the city’s legal position. Herrera’s office would not comment on whether police comply with the law.

“This is a cynical lawsuit that reflects the political aims of an anti-immigrant extremist,” Herrera said in an e-mail. “And I, frankly, think it’s intended to win headlines rather than a favorable judgment.”

They call this legal Immigrant an “anti-immigrant extremist”!  They can’t call him a racist because he ostensibly is the same “race” as most illegals.

Then this gem:

San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom has said several times that he and other San Francisco officials remain committed to offering illegal immigrants refuge in the city.

San Francisco has been a sanctuary city since 1989. The designation, adopted by cities across the country in the late 1980s and early 1990s has no legal meaning.

Robert Rubin, legal director for the Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights of San Francisco, helped write the sanctuary ordinance and said it doesn’t contradict the reporting requirement.

“This is a frivolous lawsuit,” Rubin said. “This state law is embodied in the general order of the Police Department. I don’t know why he contends the city is not reporting.”

And Mr. Rubin presumably said that last sentence with a straight face.

Good Luck Mr. Fonseca!  Athough the law and logic are on your side, this is San Francisco.  You haven’t a chance in the world.

Gavin Newsom Responds

He also tries to tell me about crime not reported because of fear. How about the crime that arrived with the ILLEGALS?

I undestand that California, Texas and the remaining south western states have been dealing with this invasion for many years, but I wonder if the country realizes that the whole country is being invaded by illegal immigrants. I live in Beaufort County South Carolina, where I have seen over the past 10 years, this beautiful area turn into a foreign stronghold. Labor rates have frozen, or in some cases actually been reduced, while cost are skyrocketing due to the “invasion” of illigal immigrants. Our schools are so over populated that we have more classes in trailors than in the actual school. The local elementary is only 4 or 5 years old! Auto insurance, health insurance and property taxes, which are not contributed to by the illegal immigrants, are rising to the point that many long time residents are being forced out. Our local government is trying to inact legislation but our national government is ignoring the situation. Our lame duck President has done nothing but amplify the situation throughout the entire country. I fear that the unrest of local citizens is going to explode and violence is going to break out in a large scale. People who have owned and opperated successful businees are being driven into the ground by those who are breaking the local, state and national laws by employing the illegal immigrants.
When someone works their whole life to build something to be proud of just to have parasites steal it all away is a very difficult thing for even the most patient person to endure.
I don’t know what it is going to take for our national government to get their head out of the sand and do something to save this once great country.
