SAN FRANCISCO (KRON) — Since the Pier 14 shooting, there has been some criticism of San Francisco’s sanctuary program.
And there has been questions about why Sanchez was recently released from custody and had his drug charges dropped.
A sanctuary city makes it safe for an immigrant to come forward and report a crime without the threat of deportation. To go to hospitals, and to get city services.
Murder suspect Francisco Sanchez is a resident of San Francisco. He has been deported a handful of times.
An immigration and customs enforcement request to hold Sanchez was ignored. According to criminal justice reform lawyer Angela Chan, ICE holds violate the constitution because they’re signed by an immigration officer, not a judge.
