You might ask yourself: Could the illegal alien sanctuary debacle in San Francisco get any worse?
Any worse than the triple murder of an innocent father and his two sons at the hands of an illegal alien sanctuary beneficiary?
Any worse than the callousness with which San Francisco government officials have treated the grieving, devastated widow of the murder victims who would be alive today if not for the city’s bloody open-borders policies?
Any worse than the taxpayer-funded, law-undermining illegal alien shuttle service the felonious city was running for young Honduran illegal alien crack dealers?
Any worse than the illegal alien dumping program San Francisco created to ship convicted illegal alien drug dealders/deportation evaders down to San Bernardino County, where they were enrolled in juvenile group homes–only to walk out scot-free and disappear?
Any worse than the news that even more Central American illegal alien criminals escaped those homes after the program was exposed?
Yes, my friends.
Yes, it does get worse.
Ace San Francisco Chronicle reporter Jaxon Van Derbeken remains on the case with another appalling new report today on how proud illegal alien sanctuary proponent SF mayor Gavin Newsom showered $650,000 of public funds on illegal alien felons to provide them with legal services and “cultural affirmation” through open-borders non-profits. Blood pressure alert:
As San Francisco’s juvenile justice system shielded young illegal immigrant felons from possible deportation, Mayor Gavin Newsom’s office gave grants totaling more than $650,000 to nonprofit agencies to provide the underage offenders with free services – everything from immigration attorneys to housing assistance to “arts and cultural affirmation activities,” city records show.
Newsom has said the city began its policy of not referring young immigrant offenders to federal authorities for deportation under previous mayors, and that he reversed the practice after he became aware of it this year. However, in 2006, the Mayor’s Office of Criminal Justice – a community outreach arm of Newsom’s office – created a grant program specifically designed to assist, rather than deport, “undocumented, unaccompanied and monolingual” immigrants who were in the custody of the city’s Juvenile Probation Department or on juvenile probation, according to city documents.
The city provided $467,000 to three nonprofit agencies under the grant program from mid-2006 and mid-2008, records show, and another $200,000 was approved for two of the agencies for this budget year.
Newsom’s office created the program, in part, to deal with an influx of Central American youths being housed on drug charges at San Francisco’s juvenile hall, according to those familiar with the grant. Crowding at juvenile hall had led to protests among youth advocate groups.
“A key goal of this project is to assist these individuals to successfully navigate the juvenile justice system and achieve stability within the community setting,” according to a 2006 invitation issued by Newsom’s office for agencies to bid for grant money.
The grant language said the youths “require extensive support” to overcome “multiple complex barriers” in the justice system.
Money for the effort came from the pot of discretionary funding that the mayor’s office receives each year as part of the city budget.
The goal of the grant program, according to the request for bids, was to further the city’s “proud tradition as a haven for immigrants.”
In addition to immigration attorneys, Newsom’s office envisioned the program helping young felons obtain housing, food, clothing, educational and vocational training, English-language instruction, medical care and mental health assessments.
The program would also provide “spiritual, cultural enrichment and recreation activities.”
How about those San Francisco values, Nancy Pelosi? Hello? Nancy?
