Posted on 11/25/2016 10:12:29 AM PST by Baynative
WHEREAS, On November 8, 2016, Donald Trump was elected to become the 45th President of the United States; now, therefore, be it
RESOLVED, That no matter the threats made by President-elect Trump, San Francisco will remain a Sanctuary City. We will not turn our back on the men and women from other countries who help make this city great, and who represent over one third of our population. This is the Golden Gatewe build bridges, not walls; and, be it

FURTHER RESOLVED, That there will be no conversion therapy, no withdrawal of rights in San Francisco. We began hosting gay weddings twelve years ago, and we are not stopping now. And to all the LGBTQ people all over the country who feel scared, bullied, or alone: You matter. You are seen; you are loved; and San Francisco will never stop fighting for you; and, be it
FURTHER RESOLVED, That we still believe in this nations founding principle of religious freedom. We do not ban people for their faith. And the only lists we keep are on invitations to come pray together; and, be it
FURTHER RESOLVED, That Black Lives Matter in San Francisco, even if they may not in the White House. And guided by President Obamas Task Force on 21st Century Policing, we will continue reforming our police department and rebuilding trust between police and communities of color so all citizens feel safe in their neighborhoods; and, be it
FURTHER RESOLVED, That climate change is not a hoax, or a plot by the Chinese. In this city, surrounded by water on three sides, science matters. And we will continue our work on CleanPower, Zero Waste, and everything else we are doing to protect future generations; and, be it
FURTHER RESOLVED, That we have been providing universal health care in this city for nearly a decade, and if the new administration follows through on its callous promise to revoke health insurance from 20 million people, San Franciscans will be protected; and, be it
FURTHER RESOLVED, That we are the birthplace of the United Nations, a city made stronger by the thousands of international visitors we welcome every day. We will remain committed to internationalism and to our friends and allies around the worldwhether the administration in Washington is or not; and, be it
FURTHER RESOLVED, That San Francisco will remain a Transit First city and will continue building Muni and BART systems we can all rely upon, whether this administration follows through on its platform to eliminate federal transit funding or not; and, be it
FURTHER RESOLVED, That California is the sixth largest economy in the world. The Bay Area is the innovation capital of the country. We will not be bullied by threats to revoke our federal funding, nor will we sacrifice our values or members of our community for your dollar; and, be it
FURTHER RESOLVED, That we condemn all hate crimes and hate speech perpetrated in this elections wake. That although the United States will soon have a President who has demonstrated a lack of respect for the values we hold in the highest regard in San Francisco, it cannot change who we are, and it will never change our values. We argue, we campaign, we debate vigorously within San Francisco, but on these points we are 100 percent united. We will fight discrimination and recklessness in all its forms. We are one City. And we will move forward together.
Illegals do not “make a city great”. These people are nuts.
They only condemn SOME “hate speech” of cuss.
That with the rest of the rhetoric is wearing kind of thin.
Fine. Do it with your own money. Here’s an idea to make it easier to raise the money you’ll have to make up: Raise the minimum wage to 20 dollars an hour.
They pull in welfare dough.
Except when they don’t.
Uhhhhhhhh...did you run this one by your local Imam?
Good luck paying for all that with no fed dollars.
I want those protecting illegal aliens criminally charged, otherwise screw aplying the law to me and my family. And that’s not a radical position. I never saw a cop create a “sanctuary” for me.
When Trump cuts off some Federal money, this Resolution will be worthless.
I can’t wait until the begging commences!
I love the way Mark Steyn refers to this group of lunatics as the LGBTQWERTY community.
These leftists are scum. They can shove their communist manifesto.
So, when’s that earthquake due?
I believe that San Fran- Ciscooooo just stepped hip deep.
The city has just cut it’s own throat.
January 20, 2017 comes not soon enough!!
BE IT RESOLVED... That Satan causes a 10.0 earthquake and we sink into the Pacific, and are put out of our misery.
Resolved, That is you make an effort to hide people illegally in the U.S., you will be treated as a criminal government in rebellion against the lawful exercise of federal authority.
Any other attempts at violating the constitution will result in further retaliation.
You can otherwise run your little loony bin however you want within the borders of said loony bin.
You build bridges? Which bridge did SF throw
Kate Steinly from?
Brought to you by the disgusting creep Ed Lee, Chinese Supremacist who sued his way into power.
A bigger racist, more vicious and desperate you cannot imagine.
These filthy lawbreakers say the illegals are MORE THAN ONE THIRD OF THEIR POPULATION! Throw them all out and arrest the city officials. This is an insane communist insurrection. How dare they.
Not sure President Trump can cut this money off. I think it's up to Paul Ryan and Miotch McConnell to decide how taxpayers' money is spent.
At least that's how it's S'POSED to work.
