Federal Judges Need To Be Reigned-In

    True but suing the cities may give some incentive for the lawmakers to change the stupid law/policy. Still confused with these statements:

    "The court also said San Francisco’s policy did not violate federal law, which requires only that local officials share information with federal agents about the immigration status of local inmates."

    Upholding that dismissal, the appeals court said Monday that Steinle’s “tragic and unnecessary death ... may well underscore the policy argument against Sheriff Mirkarimi’s decision” not to notify immigration officials about the release of an undocumented immigrant with a felony record.

    “But that policy argument can be acted upon only by California’s state and municipal political branches of government, or perhaps by Congress — but not by federal judges” interpreting state law, Bennett said."

    Fed law requires local to notify, city policy defies Fed law and local sheriff releases without notification but they are protected against because they have a policy?

    The federal law doesn't require them to inform the feds, sharing info is different.

    So sharing info is not informing, gotcha! Aprils fools right? info is short for wut"

    The Mayor said that the sheriff failed as he stated the sanctuary city ordinance allows the sheriff to coordinate with federal immigration and ICE agents. I am not sure why the sheriff didn't "share the info" an inmate on the deport list was about to be released. Reading back, it wasn't just the sheriff but Victorville prison coordination with SF DA and ICE.

    LA Times:

    Sanchez was in federal prison for re-entering the country after his fifth deportation. But on March 26, as the date neared for him to be released into ICE custody, prison officials in Victorville shipped him north to the San Francisco Sheriff's Department on an outstanding drug-related warrant despite an immigration detainer. The San Francisco district attorney's office declined to prosecute what authorities said was a decade-old marijuana possession case, and Sanchez was released April 15.

    Immigration officials issued another detainer after Lopez-Sanchez arrived in San Francisco, requesting to be notified before his release so arrangements could be made to take custody, ICE spokeswoman Virginia Kice said.

    "The detainer was not honored," Kice said in a statement.

    San Francisco, as a sanctuary city, honors immigration holds only if the person has a violent record or if a judge had vetted the hold or approved a warrant. In this case, ICE did not seek a court order, Sheriff Ross Mirkarimi said.

    Under California's 2014 Trust Act, Lopez-Sanchez could have been held for immigration based on his past felonies.

    About 300 cities and counties, including San Francisco, do not honor requests from ICE to keep someone in a local jail until immigration officials can take the person into custody. Recent court decisions have said that such requests violate an individual's constitutional right to due process and that local jurisdictions could be held liable for wrongful imprisonment.

    One is active the other is more passive. Look at it as having to call the feds versus telling them how many illegals you had last year or even answering how many you have in jail if they call you. It's a pretty big difference really.

    You keep saying the Sheriff should have called - and I totally agree - but not doing so still doesn't break the federal law and that is what the discussion regarding the court is all about. The feds can request immediate notification all they like, the federal law does not actually require it.

    To those confused about what it means to drain the swamp and claim it's impossible - that is an example of how it's done. Trump is building a true MAGA legacy in spite of the establishment fighting against it. This is F'n Yuge!!

    Wow 7-2 so this is strong. The only dissent was the one who is Latina first American second and the undead one. Wonder if she turns to dust if Trump is elected for a second term.:Pop:

    The left needs vote fraud in order to win. They will do everything to ensure they have it.

    Notice that they love court orders except when things don't go their way, then
    they just find another judge who is on their side, but they sure as hell don't
    comply with the court order.
