Logical "Contusion"
San Francisco Policy Leads to Anarchy

Lou Dobbs Tonight -- CNN -- July 7  
"It's obviously either naivete or arrogance…. compounded by incompetent..."

Casey Wian: Mayor Gavin Newsom has repeatedly trumpeted San Francisco's policy of not cooperating with federal immigration law enforcement.

Newsom: We are a sanctuary city, we don't cooperate with the federal government as relates to these raids.
Wian: Now the mayor has changed his tune after pressure from the feds and other local officials in California. They discovered that for nearly 20 years, San Francisco has been shielding illegal alien drug dealers claiming to be juveniles from federal immigration authorities.
Joseph Russoniello, U.S. Atty., N. Cal: It's obviously either naivete or arrogance, you know, compounded by incompetent to do something like that. [...}
Rick Oltman, CAPS: They've used taxpayer dollars to shield drug traffickers from federal prosecution. This is, in fact, the logical extension of the sanctuary city gone wild. It had to happen some place. San Francisco was as good a place as it happened. I hope that other cities around the country are watching this mess.
