It seems that the politicians have one thing in mind, but the citizens have another:
SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) — An exclusive new Survey USA poll offered a stunning snapshot of where the Bay Area stands on immigration Monday, with the new numbers revealing that more local residents are backing President Trump’s policies than you might think.
The KPIX 5 Survey USA Poll showed more than half of people support a key element of the President’s immigration policy.
53 percent said local law enforcement should always contact federal authorities about illegal immigrants who commit violent crimes.
The even bigger surprise was the number of Bay Area Hispanics who supported notifying the feds.
70 percent of respondents said yes, ICE should always be notified about serious drug offenders.
That number included a whopping 83 percent of independents, 78 percent of Republicans and 63 percent of Democrats.
Right now San Francisco does not notify ICE about immigrants who have committed serious drug crimes.
And the politicians there don't seem to care how many people get hurt or killed as a result. It's the same thing here in the Portland area; a Multnomah County Court referee actually led an illegal alien, who was charged with DUII, out of the courtroom via the judge's chambers because ICE agents were waiting outside the main doors of the courtroom to take him into custody.
A young man's daring escape from capture by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents, apparently with the assistance of a local judicial referee, has shocked and divided the Portland legal community.
Multnomah County court referee Monica Herranz is under internal review and the target of complaints from a federal prosecutor after allegedly helping the undocumented immigrant elude ICE last month by exiting the courtroom through an employee door.
On the bench in the courtroom that day was Monica Herranz, who is also on the board of directors of the Oregon Hispanic Bar Association. Herranz is what's known as a court referee: essentially a contract judge who handles lower-level criminal, civil and family court cases.
Monica never heard of obstruction of justice, evidently.
