So the San Mateo County Board of Supervisors is banning all criminals in this country illegally from being reported to ICE, even those crimes of rape, murder and child molestation. There is a good chance those arrested will be released back into society to prey on the public once again. This seems to me to be a dereliction of duty and certainly a repudiation of their oath of office. Gee, why don’t I feel safer today?

Actually, L. Searight, I’d say there’s a more than good chance those released will prey on the public once again. If I didn’t live in San Mateo County, I’d start advising other counties to bus/refer these criminals to San Mateo.
