After Murder Of Bambi Larson, San Jose Suddenly Realizes That Sanctuary City Status Might Not Be A Great Idea

Supporting illegal immigration and being a sanctuary jurisdiction is all fun and games right up to the point where it comes back and bites them with a real world atrocity

Immigration debate intensifies in San Jose

The debate on sanctuary city policies intensified at a City Council meeting this week after an update on activities of a government office — implemented to help and protect undocumented immigrants — sparked controversy.

The debate, spurred by the recent death of a San Jose woman who was allegedly killed by an undocumented immigrant, highlights the concern some residents have over the safety and security of their neighborhoods as they grow more diverse with immigrants.

In a statement following the death of the slain woman Bambi Larson, Mayor Sam Liccardo said it’s “long overdue for the County to reconsider its current policy of ignoring ICE hold requests for predatory felons.”

That’s a rather sanitized way of saying that she was murdered by an illegal alien. “Death”?

Liccardo has maintained his position for the past four years that the county should reconsider its stance on sanctuary policies after the murder of Kathryn Steinle in San Francisco stating that “elected officials should be able to distinguish between a violent, predatory felon and more than the 99 percent of members of our immigrant communities who would never commit such crimes.”

“They would simply need to pick up the phone and call the authorities when those individuals would be released into the community,” added Liccardo.

Implemented in 2015, the city’s Office of Immigrant Affairs provides immigrants with a wide set of resources to help create pathways to citizenship, protect against deportations, and integrate the immigrant community in civic engagement.

The office has been criticized for providing immigrants with safety networks through its Rapid Response Hotline — a community defense project intended to help those in the event that Immigration and Customs Enforcement activity takes place.

But, they ultimately will end up not changing their sanctuary policy. Many on the council are equating legal with illegal immigration, and even have an Office of Immigration Affairs, meant to protect illegal aliens.
