A recent San Francisco Chronicle report
stated that sanctuary city
policies have aided drug dealers from Honduras to such an extent that the money
they are sending home is fueling a real estate boom.
Well, at least Democrat policies have been good for one
The report cited interviews with multiple Honduran
migrants who sold drugs in San Francisco, and who noted that the sanctuary city
policies resulted in a much lower risk of deportation-- as well as shorter
stints in prison for any drug dealer actually convicted of a crime. One dealer
told the Chronicle that at least 50% of the drug dealers from his hometown were
selling their wares in San Francisco because of the lax enforcement policies.
The dealer opined, “In San Francisco, it’s like you’re here in Honduras.”
He added, “The law, because they don’t deport,
that’s the problem. Many look for San Francisco because it’s a sanctuary city.
You go to jail and you come out.” He further stated that some of the Honduran
drug dealers were making so much money-- and sending it home-- that the real
estate market had experienced a big surge in Honduras.
Honduras is benefitting from San Francisco’s descent into destitution, depravity, and despair? To the
extent that, “In San Francisco, it’s like you’re here in Honduras.”
That’s quite a comparison. One that is becoming more
and more appropriate on many levels, but one that is not exactly a feather in
the cap of The City by the Bay.
