ICE is targeting sanctuary cities for arrests. Is this what Pacifica is in for?

Federal immigration officials in the Bay Area arrested 27 people this week, most with past criminal convictions, as part of a national sweep targeting cities that prohibit cooperation between local law enforcement and U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, the agency said Thursday.

The arrests in San Francisco, San Jose, Sunnyvale and Morgan Hill — and more than 100 in Los Angeles — were part of a four-day sweep that began Sunday. Overall, ICE officials acting in eight states and Washington, D.C., arrested 498 people from 42 countries who were in the United States illegally.

Of those, 181 had no previous criminal conviction, according to ICE. The remaining 317 had been convicted of crimes ranging from trespassing to rape, with the largest single offense driving under the influence.

“Sanctuary jurisdictions that do not honor (detention requests) or allow us access to jails and prisons are shielding criminal aliens from immigration enforcement and creating a magnet for illegal immigration,” ICE Acting Director Tom Homan said in a statement. “As a result, ICE is forced to dedicate more resources to conduct at-large arrests in these communities.”

Are we a nation of laws or not?
Do we want to respect the law or not?
Isn't the strength of our body judiciary the attraction for immigration?
Do we want to undermine that?

I don't like this.

Keener, Deirdre, Digre should "DO THE RIGHT THING" and resign. They are incompetent, do not have the best interest of our city or it's CITIZENS at heart. This sanctuary city thing is rodeo clown news!

The three stooges have done not one thing FOR Pacifica it's all been against the vast majority who aren't sycophants. Their brand of whatever it is they're doing to us has never been part of the political makeup of Pacifica.
This too will pass but will we survive?

illegal immigrants are subject to arrest because the first thing they did while entering this country was jump the border, not get in line for proper immigration applications like all other law abiding immigrants. Illegals act like they belong. I don't jump the line anywhere and act like that is ok.

so, they violated the law. Nothing else matters. Entering this county is not their "right". Adios.

The Three Stooges are running a social science project, NOT a city.
They're in thick with the NOBY's and the rest of the non-voting Pacifica assures the continuation of their incompetence.
