    SF Mayor Appoints Sanctuary City Supporter as Police Chief

    San Francisco mayor says Mesa chief to lead PD

    The Associated Press, June 16, 2009

    San Francisco (AP) -- San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom has chosen Mesa, Ariz. police Chief George Gascon as the city's next chief of police.

    "I know going outside is a risk," Newsom told the San Francisco Chronicle Tuesday about his decision not to select a replacement for outgoing chief Heather Fong from within the police department. "But (Gascon) is a nuts-and-bolts-type of chief, a cop's cop and very active in community policing."

    Gascon, 55, has been police chief of Mesa, a city of 460,000 that is part of the Phoenix metropolitan area, since 2006. Before that, he was an assistant police chief in Los Angeles.

    "Any time you go into a new opportunity, there is going to be a level of uncertainty," Gascon told the Chronicle. "But I feel very comfortable."

    Gascon is a supporter of sanctuary policies for illegal immigrants, which San Francisco has followed for years. He has described the use of officers to enforce immigration laws as a waste of resources, and he has clashed with a county sheriff in Arizona over the sheriff's efforts to arrest illegal immigrants.

    "He shares the mayor's support for the sanctuary city policy and he has tackled some of the toughest immigration related law enforcement issues as a police chief in Arizona," said Nathan Ballard, a spokesman for the mayor.

    You didn't have to tell us that. It was understood because we know that Mayor Newsom wouldn't have chosen anyone that didn't support his sanctuary policies.

    lets hope the city of Mesa can and will not appoint someone who will enforce all laws, not just selected ones. maybe someone from Sheriff Joe's officers will apply for the job

    Time for a real tax party, California.

    I feel so sorry for American living in California. It is un-fair that the legal citizens are suffering so much and the traitor politicans are still putting the needs and services of illegals above Americans. Disgusting.

    ...it's maddening. The politics (and politicians) of this state make it so hard to get ahead here. Because of all the liberlism and many other things, if there is some sort of internal revolution, I wont be surprised if it starts here...

    S.F. Sanctuary Gets Backup

    By Jon Feere, June 18, 2009

    On Anniversary of Brutal Slaying, S.F. Mayor Appoints Sanctuary Advocate as Police Chief.

    A year after the brutal killing of Tony Bologna, 48, and his sons Matthew, 20, and Michael, 16, on the streets of sanctuary city San Francisco, the illegal alien suspect and possible MS-13 gang member Edwin Ramos appeared in court.

    As an illegal alien, Ramos could have been deported years earlier, particularly after having committed two felonies: assaulting a young man on public transit and attempted robbery of a pregnant woman. But San Francisco’s sanctuary policy shielded Ramos from deportation. The lethal fallout from the City by the Bay’s dangerous policy was covered in a series of stunning articles authored by the San Francisco Chronicle’s Jaxon Van Derbeken, winner of the Center for Immigration Studies’ 2009 Eugene Katz Award for Excellence in the Coverage of Immigration.

    While San Francisco claims to have tweaked their illegal-alien protecting policy, it’s clear city officials still don’t get it.

    In what amounts to a slap in the face to the Bologna family, less than 24 hours after Ramos’ hearing, Mayor Gavin Newsom announced his appointment of Cuban immigrant George Gascon to the position of police chief, a man who has made a name for himself by pushing sanctuary-policies first as a police chief in Los Angeles and most recently as a police chief in Maricopa County, Ariz. As explained by the Associated Press:

    Gascon is a supporter of sanctuary policies for illegal immigrants, which San Francisco has followed for years. He has described the use of officers to enforce immigration laws as a waste of resources, and he has clashed with a county sheriff in Arizona over the sheriff's efforts to arrest illegal immigrants.

    "He shares the mayor's support for the sanctuary city policy and he has tackled some of the toughest immigration related law enforcement issues as a police chief in Arizona," said Nathan Ballard, a spokesman for the mayor.

    On immigration, Mr. Gascon believes that “demagoguery and misinformation are shaping public opinion
