Good old ultra-liberal, ultra-tolerant, sanctuary community Bay Area! It's going to take some real tragedies over a period of time before citizens tell their Socialist town councils and mayors to give their police the 287.g training and begin getting the hundreds of thousands of illegals out of their communities.

Illegal immigrants are destroying our communities, and costing CA taxpayers billions of dollars.
Education, for the 1.4 million illegal immigrant students, in California, costs taxpayers over 15 Billion Dollars a year.
Incarceration of criminal illegal immigrants in California State Prisons costs 1.4 Billion Dollars a year.
Recently a bill was introduced that would deport 17,000 illegal immigrants from our state prisons, to save money, and deal with the issue of overcrowding. The Hispanic Caucus killed the bill before it ever got out of committee. Now, 22,000 allegedly non-violent felons will be release among us, in lieu of the 17,000 illegals being deported.
California has the 48th highest unemployment rate (6.2%) among all states. Illegal immigrants are taking jobs away from citizens.

Poor stupid Seniors and those parents with children--in California. By ignoring illegal immigration, you are proving how much you care about those even close to you. Really pathetic people. Make sure your house has deadbolts on the door and don't walk your dog after 5 pm. But this is moot advice, you probably already accept living like this.

Illegal Immigrations are ruined out everywhere in USA and they are broken the law and sneaked USA for free and money and they steal from American's jobs as Suppose to give all Americans who born on USA on the soil because we paid TAXES for it but Ill. Imm. did not pay one cent to TAX... NOT FAIR. All Ill. Imm. MUST depot to their countries or Mexico. Unless they must buy GREEN CARDS or VISA to come to pay for US Citzens. Not right to give Ill.Imm. free. NO WAY! They know better this situation. I know they (Ill.Imm)feel sorry or pity themselves for free in USA ... WHY NOT Mexican people should fight with Mexico Goverment to set up new TAXES and give MORE Jobs then they CAN stay there and no more come USA and HURRY completely Border wall or fence soon as possible. I am sick of it.
