    San Fran Could Owe $190K after Sanctuary City Policy Didn’t Protect Illegal Alien

    by JOHN BINDER

    San Francisco, CA

    American taxpayers in San Francisco are expected to soon pay up to $190,000 to an illegal alien who claimed the City’s “sanctuary” policies did not protect him, despite his previous criminal history.

    In December 2015, Pedro Figueroa-Zarceno, an illegal alien from El Salvador, had his car stolen and subsequently went to the local police station to recover the vehicle. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents were contacted, as police were made aware that Figueroa-Zarceno was an illegal alien, according to CBS News.

    Figueroa-Zarceno was ordered to be deported back in 2005, but he has defied the order. In 2012, the illegal alien was convicted and imprisoned for drunk driving.

    While Figueroa-Zarceno was taken into custody by ICE, he and his lawyers said his detention violated San Francisco’s controversial sanctuary city laws, which mandates that illegal aliens, no matter their criminal history, be shielded from immigration law enforcement.

    The illegal alien was detained by ICE for two months, but his attorneys are now expected to win him $190,000 settlement, which taxpayers will foot the bill.

    According to Figueroa-Zarceno’s attorneys, the San Francisco Police Department violated sanctuary city laws by allegedly cooperating with ICE to inform them of the illegal alien’s status and past run-ins with the law.

    The San Francisco Police Department is advocating for the settlement with the illegal alien.

    “San Francisco has strong policies in place to encourage victims and witnesses to report crimes without fear of being deported, which include our sanctuary ordinance,” San Francisco City Attorney spokesman John Coté said. “These policies are designed to foster respect and trust between law enforcement and residents to ensure our communities are safe. The City, including the Police Department, remain committed to them.”

    “This proposed settlement is a fair resolution for all of the parties involved,” Coté said.

    Poll: Plurality of San Franciscans Say $190k Settlement with Illegal Alien ‘Sets a Ba

    Poll: Plurality of San Franciscans Say $190k Settlement with Illegal Alien ‘Sets a Bad Precedent’

    A Survey USA Poll of adults in San Francisco conducted last week shows that a plurality of citizens say the city’s recently announced settlement for $190,000 with an illegal alien whom police reported to ICE sets a bad precedent.

    When asked, “Does settling this case set a good precedent for the future? A bad precedent? Or does it not set a precedent at all?,” 41 percent of San Franciscans said the settlement sets a bad precedent, while 30 percent said it sets a good precedent.

    Despite the plurality who say the settlement sets a bad precedent, 70 percent say the city should continue its sanctuary policies, while only 24 percent say they should be stopped.

    San Franciscans split sharply along party lines on the issue.

    Democrats want to continue the sanctuary city policies by an 81 percent to 15 percent margin.

    Republicans want to end the sanctuary city policies by a 48 percent to 42 percent margin.

    Independents want to continue the sanctuary city policies by a 60 percent to 32 percent margin.

    Sixty percent of the poll respondents were Democrats, 11 percent were Republican, and 26 percent were independents.

    Seventy-four percent of respondents aged 18 to 34 say San Francisco should continue to be a sanctuary city. That percentage drops with each age group. Fifty-nine percent of respondents over the age of 65 say San Francisco should continue to be a sanctuary city.

    Forty-five percent of respondents agree with the city’s decision to settle with the illegal alien, while 40 percent disagree.

    San Francisco’s sanctuary city policies were brought to national attention in July 2015 when an illegal alien, who had been deported multiple times but re-entered the country and was living in San Francisco under the protection of its local laws, shot and murdered 32-year old Kate Steinle on Pier 14 in San Francisco while she was walking with her father.

    Last week, the House of Representatives passed Kate’s Law, largely on a party-line vote.

    “Kate’s Law increases criminal penalties for illegal immigrants who repeatedly re-enter the country illegally. The bill is named for Kate Steinle, who was killed by an illegal immigrant who had been deported five times. Every year, countless Americans are victimized, assaulted, and killed by illegal immigrants who have been deported multiple times. It is time for these tragedies to end,” President Trump said immediately after the bill passed the House.

    The poll of 500 adults in San Francisco was conducted by Survey USA on Thursday, June 29, one day after news broke that Pedro Figueroa-Zarceno, an illegal alien from El Salvador may be soon be receiving a $190,000 check from the City of San Francisco because “a San Francisco police officer directly contacted ICE and told them where to find [him],” as KPIX 5 reported last Wednesday, June 28, and has a margin of error of 4.5 percent.
