San Francisco shuns the FBI, & What is to be done? @jedbabbin, WashingtonTimes.com

For one big reason San Francisco stands out among the 500 cities that have declared themselves sanctuaries for illegal aliens. Others content themselves by refusing to cooperate with federal immigration enforcement agencies. About a month ago San Francisco took a big step farther by withdrawing its police from cooperation with the FBI’s Joint Terrorism Task Force (JTTF).

The city’s decision was apparently the result of pressure from civil rights groups and Muslim activists. One newspaper quoted John Crew, formerly a lawyer with the American Civil Liberties Union, who was consulted by the city and the FBI on the issue. Mr. Crew condemned the cities that have joined the JTTF because ” local civil rights and racial profiling policies are going to be reevaluated in the era of the Trump administration,” whatever that means.

San Francisco’s action leads inexorably to two conclusions. First, that liberals’ political hysteria over President Trump’s election causes them to act even where, as in this case, there is no evidence to support their assumption that Mr. Trump’s goal is to tear up the Bill of Rights. Second, that liberal city governments (and San Francisco may be the most liberal of all) believe it is more important to wave the middle-finger gesture at Mr. Trump than it is to protect the lives and property of their citizens.
