California was named.
Map of California - we are a Sanctuary State
It was NOT easy to proclaim San Francisco a " Sanctuary City " in 1989 - and years before that - when thousands of citizens from El Salvador and neighboring South and Central American countries - were fleeing - their " war ravaged nations ".
Behind the scenes - led by the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) - and vested American interests - who propped up the many Banana Republics. Millions died - and to this days - the scars and memories of those years - have traumatized - too many innocent human beings.
Today in Sacramento - some 20 years later - the " Sanctuary City " laws are being tightened up - to better address the present situation - and the unnecessary targeting - of innocent people - more undocumented immigrants - who want to live, work extremely hard to make a decent living.
San Francisco is not far behind - having made a vain attempt after 20 years - failing to involve the constituents of San Francisco - tax paying citizens - to make the necessary changed - to reflect in the current changes made by the SF Police Department.
I count myself among those who fought hard from 1986 to today -
to create a " Sanctuary City " and more protect innocent - undocumented immigrants.
San Francisco is "Ohlone Land " more, Muwekma Ohlone land and I represent San Francisco on behalf of the Muwekma Ohlone - on all matters linked to Quality of Life issues.

When the Russians mostly fur traders came here hundreds of years ago - much before the Spanish - no one asked them for their documents - they came freely - and so did the Spanish.
Once Mexico ruled California - one has only to read the " Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo ".
Many rights bestowed to the Native Americans all over California - were thrown to the wind - the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo - signed on February 2, 1848.
California was admitted into the Union in 1850 and the language has to be read and studied - affording all human beings living in California - the many basic rights spelled out in detail - high lighting the right to express oneself freely without harm - travel freely and contribute to the welfare of this Great State of California.
From its inception to today - Representatives representing California - which today - is the 6th largest economy in the world - represent California as best they can - in the Senate and in the House.
In recent times - we have seen divisiveness - the like that we have not seen before - bringing images to the fore of the " Holocaust " - other horrible images and actions - where thousands and in some cases millions of innocent people - were adversely impacted.
Under President Barack Hussein Obama - thousands of immigrants -were deported.
In many cases - children were hoarded like animals - after spending years - incarcerated in poor maintained jails - sent back across the border.
No one knows what happened to these children - if they were preyed by cartels, nefarious entities.
If most of them were exploited and died. This one singular action cries to heaven - the White House and those in charge under President Barack Hussein Obama - have blood on their hands.
Today - we have another President Donald Trump - who is not respected by most in the United States.
He was shooed in because the Democrats failed to represent - again and again - despicable Democrats like Hillary Clinton were caught lying, cheating, and hoodwinking.
At one key debate Hillary Clinton - was provided the key questions - before hand in preparation for a Presidential Debate by one despicable person - a prominent organizer of the Democratic Party - Donna Brazile.
There are others too - all Democrats - despicable - that I can mention - but mentioning their name - would only tarnish this article.
Today - decent Californian from our Great State - that has contributed too much to the Federal government - all these many years - giving more in taxes - and receiving - less.
In recent years - we have a Jesuit trained California Governor - Jerry Brown who has turned around our California economy - and who has stood up to President Donald Trump - who subjectively speaking is - " an egoistical maniac " .
Recently 35 experts - more, psychologists and psychiatrists from Yale University - all declared in unison - that President Donald Trump - has very serious - mental problems - and can harm our Nation.
The United Nations backed by the United States and other key Nations - France, Russia, United Kingdom and China - deliberate on Human Right issues.
Again and again the United States - tries its best - it has failed when millions died in Rwanda and we know that scar that will be left on history - with the United States and President Bill Clinton - being the one responsible.
We could talk about Dafur, Cambodia, Syria - and about hundreds of other massacres, genocides, and it will do NO good.
We must do right - with our heart in right place - and take children, women, and men that need help - to the best place.
I have served my nation as best I could - working for Sixth Army and Presidio of San Francisco - its last Congressional Liaison - the National Park Service and the United States Park Police.
Learning as much I could - the very convoluted manners, ways, and actions - many that adversely impact - innocent people for the rest of their lives.
Learning daily even more as the Director of Environmental Justice Advocacy - daily fighting in the trenches - fighting for the immigrants, the homeless, in areas where the need is - and daring to take on evil forces - more here in San Francisco - and Room 200 at San Francisco - City Hall.
At times - standing for what is right - winning cases more when representing the innocent who have been charged wrongly.
Winning cases - that make all the sacrifice, hard work - worthwhile.
Today - decent children, women and men - more indigenous people are suffering - most of the immigrants without documents - many - just want to live peacefully.
They want to live a decent life.
As we all know - many immigrants who have no documents - are now living in utter fear.
Daily these immigrants - cannot do their shopping - the children are afraid to go to school, this nonsense must STOP.
In recent months we have seen Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) - wearing black jackets - with white letters - POLICE on their back - invading our neighborhoods - backed by San Francisco Police Department - and this is wrong.
I am requesting our Chief of Police - William Scott - in this land of the Muwekma Ohlone - to respect all immigrants.
The Muwekma Ohlone are the First People of San Francisco - recognized by the SF Planning Department in the General Plan - and many Commendations and Resolutions.
We request that our immigrants be treated with respect - and those that are innocent and have not committed crimes - be protected.
We have prepared ourselves for this day - and the key authorities in San Francisco - hopefully those that have some decency left - will abide by the letter that has been sent to them - some time ago - in preparation for this day. Aho.
The Great Spirit sees it all - and the prophets predicted these times.
Those of us - who must represent - be it going from San Francisco to North Dakota - to Camp Oceti to support the Lakota Nation.
Who dare take a stand - anywhere - where innocent people are adversely impacted - more those that cannot defend themselves.
The Great State of California - will soon have a bill in place - that protects our immigrants - more those that are here to make a decent living - have contribute too many years to California on many levels - our farm lands, in our hotels, in our restaurants, as laborers, as aides to many professionals - many are professionals and many want to contribute their best to California.
Those undocumented immigrants - that have left their countries - because of war, evil cartels who kill people without cause - come here to save their lives - are compassionate and we acknowledge their contribution to Society at large.
Immigrants burden by extreme poverty and other factors that humiliate - innocent human beings - more children - need our help - and in many Cities and towns in California - Sanctuary Cities have been formed - more to stand in unity - for all humanity and what humanity stands for.
There is a God - and we in California have always stood united to protect those that need help - this is our time to shine - make sacrifice and shine light where there is abject darkness. Aho.
