Judicial Watch: More than 2,400 Criminal illegals released under San Francisco Sheriff Office policy

Judicial Watch says that a December 2016 lawsuit that it lodged on behalf of a California taxpayer to challenge the San Francisco Sheriff’s sanctuary policy has revealed that more than 2,400 criminal illegal aliens were let go under a policy pertaining to communications with Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) about criminal illegal aliens held in police custody.
“The lawsuit argues that the Sheriff Department’s restrictions on communications with ICE conflict with federal immigration law and attempt to regulate immigration and are therefore invalid,” according to a Judicial Watch press release.
The watchdog organization said that it stated in a court filing that the policy “is so effective in regulating immigration and obstructing Congress’ purposes under federal immigration law that, in over 2,401 known instances, it has never resulted in ICE taking into custody a single alien, not even aliens with significant criminal backgrounds wanted for removal.”
