Here in San Francisco we have a large, hard working - and much needed " immigrant population ". The paradox is that the " illegal immigrants " pay their taxes. They get nothing is return in terms of benefits. This is a crying shame.
In the early 1980s we fought hard to make our City and County a Safe Haven for those that were fleeing - dictators in South America - many of the Dictators - propped up - by the United States of America.
If only the general public and more the corrupt politicians knew more about El Salvador, Nicaragua, Guatemala, Argentina - the many Banana Republics and can connect the dots.
San Franciscans and the many advocates fought hard to make San Francisco - a Sanctuary City - which today is being put to a test.
Yesterday at City Hall - Malia Cohen and Katy Tang - failed to represent those that need help most - please do not force me to get into details.
Suffice to say the above two " political whores " have failed to represent those most need help - both of them lack the much needed " compassion " - during these pressing times - to address issue that we should not permit these two - to kick down the street.
Legislation was introduced and hopefully will be voted on by the Full Board - allowing the Public Defender - who has all the experience and credibility to represent - all immigrants - caught in a bind - more - here in the jurisdiction of San Francisco.
Some advocates who daily help immigrants tried to explain to Malia Cohen and Katy Tang - that this work - representing the thousands " illegal immigrants " - is one of urgency. To no avail.
The sooner the immigrants are represent - after coming under the Immigration and Custom Enforcement (ICE) - formerly know as Naturalization and Immigration Services (NIS) - the better.
Donald Trump for reasons best known to him - and armed with his many Executive Orders - is out to get the immigrants.
Donald Trump and his lackey - have NO compassion.
The sooner WE get our act together - stop arguing and making a fool or ourselves - such as Malia Cohen a House Negro and corrupt to the core - and Kathy Tang who chose to take on the Public Defender himself - get their act together - the better.
Katy Tang from District 4
Not long ago Katy Tang - shredded sensitive information - failing to follow the rules and breaking the law.
Now, she thinks we have forgotten - our incompetent and crooked she is.
Wait until ICE visits her District 4 - and arrests the many illegal immigrants who - survive operating " prostitute dens " - one single raid coming soon to her neighborhood - will silence her for a minute.
Donald Trump according to the Associated Press - has plans to involve thousands of National Guards - to round up thousands of immigrants.
Illegal immigrants - who work all over our Nation and pay their taxes - but because they do not have the " legal papers " - cannot use their taxes paid - to receive services - such as ordinary legal Americans - do.
Yesterday - February 16, 2017 - thousands of immigrants - walked off their jobs - many of them supported by their owners.
The owners supported their employees - spoke of how hard their employees worked- and how much their services and sacrifice - was appreciated.
Malia Cohen represent District 10 -
a corrupt sell out that has failed San Francisco.
Of course Katy Tang an American Chinese - and Malia Cohen - an African American who also is a House Negro and a sell out - would not comprehend - the sacrifices the " illegal immigrants " make.
More, how difficult it is to live in " fear ' each and every day.
Being African American she should have been able to understand some - many African American parents - fear the Law Enforcement - mostly those that have children - and breathe a sigh of relief - each day - and every time their children come home - safe.
All that is California once belonged to Mexico - so it is not as if there is no connection - here in San Francisco and the surrounding areas - the cities and towns bear Spanish names - to know and more understand that connection - is important.
We all know that without the immigrants - Central Valley and all those farming operations - picking lettuce, strawberries, melons, and so forth - need hard working workers - with strong backs.
Closer to San Francisco - our many ethnic restaurants allow us to enjoy authentic foods.
That also applies to our Thai Restaurants, Chinese restaurants, and others - the many dish washers, those that prep the food - all happen to be immigrants in the majority - and among them many " illegal immigrants ".
Our concerted effort should be to unite and take a stand - with the Public Defender - his experience.
More having the stellar " capacity building " to take on a load of lawyers and attorneys - other experienced entities - such as advocates and non-profit involved in immigrant issues - all ready to roll up their sleeves and do justice.
I represent the Muwekma Ohlone - this land we call San Francisco - each and every square inch stolen - belongs to the Muwekma Ohlone.
We support the immigrants - and we will stand strong and defend the rights of the immigrants - more the indigenous immigrants from South America.
Talk is cheap - our City and County has wasted millions on a failed SFCC pension program, the Central Subway that started with a $600 million budget and now is close to $1.8 Billion, the same with the Third Street Lightrail - fleecing the tax payer.
The Van Ness Bus Rapid Transport besides inconveniencing thousands - no one cannot say how much is will cost - for sure over budget again.
Mayor Edwin M. Lee -
talks from both sides of his mouth -
we need the Public Defender in place -
time is of essence - and kicking the can down the street
is not the thing to do at this juncture.
This may have been a good start - but really - already thousands of hard working " immigrants " - need much need representation - they are under the jurisdiction under ICE - and ICE does not waste time " deporting ".
If one has REPRESENTATION one has HOPE.
President Barrack Hussein Obama -
wasted no time to deport the highest numbers
of illegal immigrants - a fact that is not known to many.
Malia Cohen better learn to control her sordid brash way - pretending to know some - when she has no clue - about many pertinent subjects - the air-head is just that - plain - stupid.
I commend Jane Kim and Sandra Sewer for introducing this legislation and hopefully the Full Board will permit the Public Defender - Jeff Adachi that I have known for over 30 years - and supported - to do his work.
The Public Defender is elected by all San Franciscans - the SF Public Defender and his office - is admired and known for their excellent work - all over the Nation.
They win over 70% of their cases - and that points to sound - REPRESENTATION.
Time is running out - as you read this article - the National Guard is being readied - to conduct raids - even though someone chose to leak the evil plans of Homeland Security - prematurely.
This is Ohlone Land and we embrace the immigrants - more those from South America - with whom the Ohlone and other Native American Tribes - inter-acted for thousands of years. Aho.
