It's too bad the SF Examiner doesn't appear to get why six members of the Board of Supervisors voted this week to ask Obama and Sens. Barbara Boxer and Dianne Feinstein to appoint a new US Attorney for Northern California.
No, it wasn't just because "current U.S. Attorney Joseph Russoniello has made some anti-Hispanic remarks that have angered numerous minority groups," as the Examiner implies.
The Board's vote came about after the year-long pushing of an anti-immigration agenda that included intensified ICE raids, the undermining of San Francisco's long-standing sanctuary city ordinance, and a Grand Jury investigation of the city's Juvenile Probation Department--moves that collectively angered immigrant rights advocates nationwide.
And no, it isn't just the case that these supervisors, who just spent four days in Washington, "can just pick up the phone and make this change happen," as the Examiner implies.
If you want to connect the dots and understand why the Board members voted the way they did, and who appears to be directing San Francisco's public safety policy, read this or this or this or this or this.
