This paper argues that instead of shielding young illegal immigrants who commit serious crimes, San Francisco should deport them. The paper takes a look at San Francisco's sanctuary policy and contends that the interpretation of this policy has been erroneous. The paper asserts that the welfare of the citizens needs to be at the forefront of every policy, and further argues that shielding these felons is a misappropriation of taxpayer money.

The City's Sanctuary Policy Factor
Shielding Reinforce Crimes]
Shielding: A Misappropriation of Public Funds

From the Paper:

"During the third quarter 2008, San Francisco's sanctuary city policy was subjected to public scrutiny due to the discovery that the Juvenile Probation Department has been shielding illegal immigrants involved in crack dealing. The probation chief flew these people home (to Honduras, Mexico, and El Salvador) - all at taxpayers' expense instead of simply deporting them. Upon the discovery of this action by federal immigration officials, the probation chief sent them to group homes (where after several days they all ran off) - at, again, the expense of San Francisco's tax-paying citizens (Tyler, 2008). Just a month after this news broke out, the news on the murder of a father and his two sons by a gang member, who was shielded from deportation, made it to headlines of newspapers and television news (, 2008)."
