    San Francisco is one of the pusling, beating hearts of the #RESIST movement, right? I mean, we all know that. It’s a given. Or… maybe not?The City by the Bay is preparing to elect a new mayor this year and candidates are lining up to prove their liberal, progressive bona fides to win over the voters. This is especially true when it comes to illegal immigration policy, where both the city and the state have been in a running battle with President Trump. But there’s one notable exception to the rule. One city attorney named Angela Alioto is running...

    The video clip lasts just 20 seconds, but its long enough to anger anyone who believes public officials and their loved ones secretly suffer from a strong sense of entitlement. Jordan Hancock, the 22-year-old son of Denver Mayor Michael B. Hancock, had been clocked going 65 mph in a 40 mph zone in Aurora, a suburb of Denver. Its unclear what preceded the heated exchange between the young man and the officer captured in the video, originally obtained by Denver ABC affiliate KMGH. But at some point, the 22-year-old unloads on the officer, spewing a stream of profanity and gay...

    It wasnt my performance, Herbst said. It was me. Jess Herbst thought she had a good shot of becoming the first openly transgender mayor to be elected in Texas on Saturday. Shed already served in the post for two years a first in its own right after the sudden death of the towns former mayor. And shed done things like re-establish the planning and zoning board and push for more law enforcement funding in the North Texas town of New Hope, population roughly 700. But after a bruising campaign, she lost, coming in third in a contest of...

    Mayor LaToya Cantrell ascended to New Orleans' highest public office Monday (May 7), becoming the first woman to lead the city in its 300-year history, and telling a large audience at the Mahalia Jackson Theatre that "There's only you and me and the work before us." "I vow to each one of you standing here today, before God Almighty, I'll spend every breath and every moment of the next four years proving that you made the right choice," Cantrell said in her speech.

    Baltimore Mayor Catherine Pugh blamed the Citys surging murder rate on local businesses. First of all, most of this Citys retail businesses are open too late, she lamented. Keeping your doors open after dark is asking for trouble. This is a time when people should be at home with their families and not be forced to go out to buy things. Second, their prices are too high, she continued. If merchandise didnt cost so much people wouldnt be forced to commit crimes just to be able to afford groceries and liquor. It shouldnt surprise us that people would use the...

    Last week the National League of Cities hosted a conference in Washington, D.C. where a couple thousand mayors and other municipal leaders from around the nation met to address various challenges facing their home towns in 2018. You can debate the usefulness of such confabs all you like, but the concept of shared experiences and an opportunity to develop solutions among local leaders surely has some value. Getting a bit carried away with the concept, however, was Washington Post editorial page editor Fred Hiatt. So impressed was he with some of the ideas which came out of the meeting that...

    **SNIP** Since then, a number of California Democrats have backed Schaaf, while House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., slammed the raid as "unjust and cruel." The Department of Justice is reviewing Schaafs actions. As for those who have lost children due to the actions of illegal immigrants -- so-called Angel Families -- they say its vital that the administration do something. Don Rosenberg, an "Angel Dad" whose 25-year-old son, Drew, was killed in San Francisco in 2010 when an illegal-immigrant driver from Honduras hit his motorbike, says that Sessions DOJ needs to have Schaaf prosecuted.

    In the wake of news that the United States is suing California for its immigration laws, U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions took aim at the states leaders, and one mayor in particular. He singled out Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf, who sparked controversy last month by warning the citys residents of an impending federal immigration raid. That move led to backlash from officials including Immigration and Customs Enforcement Director Thomas Homan. He confirmed that the agency would be launching a review of what he called an irresponsible decision that tipped off criminals living in the state. Sessions maintained that tone in...

    Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf received over 1,000 angry calls in protest against her decision last weekend to warn illegal aliens of an impending raid by federal Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officials. Schaaf who told the Washington Post, I definitely consider myself part of the resistance angered ICE officials, who made 232 arrests over several days but said that 800 illegal aliens evaded arrest due to her warning. Many of the illegal aliens targeted in the raid already had criminal convictions, according to ICE officials. The East Bay Times reports: The rough, subjective tally, as of Friday afternoon?...

    OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) A top immigration official said Wednesday that about 800 people living illegally in Northern California were able to avoid arrest because of a weekend warning that Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf put on Twitter. "What she did is no better than a gang lookout yelling 'police' when a police cruiser comes in the neighborhood, except she did it to a whole community," Thomas Homan, the Immigration and Customs Enforcement acting chief, told "Fox and Friends." The mayor warned residents over the weekend of large-scale, impending raids by immigration agents in the San Francisco Bay Area, escalating tensions...

    The real question is whether she's going to be held accountable. Federal officials said Tuesday they arrested more than 150 undocumented immigrants in a Northern California sweep aimed at countering local sanctuary laws, while suggesting Oakland Mayor Libby Schaafs decision to alert the public to the secret operation may have allowed some targets to elude capture. Sanctuary jurisdictions like San Francisco and Oakland shield dangerous criminal aliens from federal law enforcement at the expense of public safety, said Thomas Homan, the acting director of ICE. Because these jurisdictions prevent ICE from arresting criminal aliens in the secure confines of a...
