SF Sanctuary Policy Protected Criminal Alien Arrested for Hate Crime

By Andrew R. Arthur | Center for Immigration Studies

On June 28, the Washington Times reported that one Carlos Claros, who was arrested by San Francisco police on April 19 following a brazen daylight robbery that has been termed a “hate crime”, was on the streets thanks to that city’s lavish sanctuary policies. If politicos cared as much about their communities as they hate immigration enforcement, it never would have happened.

Reports indicate that the victims of that alleged offense were a Filipino family of 18 (some as young as six) who were visiting Fisherman’s Wharf on the San Francisco Bay from Wisconsin.

I used to live up the street from the scene, and they had planned to do what most tourists in the City by the Bay do: Go look at the sea lions on Pier 39.
