The San Francisco Chronicle continues its admirable job in keeping the heat on the insane policies of its city’s leaders:
On Sunday, The Chronicle reported that Ramos, at age 17, was twice found to have committed felonies – a gang motivated assault of a Muni bus passenger followed by the attempted street robbery of a pregnant woman – but he was shielded from deportation by the city’s policy of providing sanctuary for immigrants.
Ramos, now 21, is charged with murdering Anthony Bologna and his sons Matthew and Michael. He appeared today before San Francisco Superior Court Judge Lucy McCabe, but did not enter a plea. He is scheduled to return to court on Wednesday.
Police have said that Ramos was a member of the (Mara Salvatrucha) MS-13 street gang in the Mission but his offenses were not turned over to federal immigration officials, apparently shielding him from deportation.
