San Francisco Sheriff Refuses To Left His Department Cooperate With ICE


San Francisco’s new sheriff said his officers won’t help federal authorities deport undocumented immigrants despite increasing pressure from the Trump administration to crack down on people living illegally in sanctuary cities.

Paul Miyamoto: “Our department is not involved in immigration enforcement,” he told KTVU2. “We feel that it is a federal matter, and our realm of interest is public safety, and you can’t really have a safe community if the community members are afraid to come to us to report crimes.”

Paul Miyamoto, who was elected to be the top law enforcer in San Francisco in November 2019, declared to a local media outlet Tuesday that his department will not help with federal immigration enforcement. While San Francisco has long opposed most cooperation with ICE, the announcement further cements the progressive city’s status as a sanctuary jurisdiction.

“Our department is not involved in immigration enforcement,” Miyamoto, the first Asian American sheriff of San Francisco, told KTVU Fox 2. “We feel that is a federal matter, and our realm of interest is public safety, and you can’t really have a safe community if the community members are afraid to come to us to report crimes.”

Namely, his department will not honor immigration detainers lodged by federal agents. If an illegal alien in San Francisco is placed into local custody for an unrelated crime, and ICE asks that the individual be transferred into the agency’s custody, that request will simply be ignored. More

Someone should tell this chap that it’s not “immigration enforcement” it’s law enforcement. They broke the law. We need to quit messing around and start arresting these officials and charge them with a felony for refusing to enforce Federal Law. Let’s put a few behind bars and see if that changes minds.
