I love irony...and hypocrisy in the same sandwich...

SAN FRANCISCO — In the debate over illegal immigration, San Francisco has proudly played the role of liberal enclave, a so-called sanctuary city where local officials have refused to cooperate with enforcement of federal immigration law and undocumented residents have mostly lived without fear of consequence.

But over the last year, buffeted by several high-profile crimes by illegal immigrants and revelations of mismanagement of the city’s sanctuary policy, San Francisco has become less like its self-image and more like many other cities in the United States: deeply conflicted over how to cope with the fallout of illegal immigration.

Imagine that...folks who were breaking the law just being in the US (and San Francisco)...continued to break the law on a more definitive basis. Then, those who FELT better by allowing these criminals to live in their "sancuary" realized that they were not necessarily benefitting from their leeching existence and growing predatory behavior.

Gosh...didn't see that coming...
