I can't believe how ignorant Newsom is. Why would you provide indentification cards to someone who is not a legal citizen? This is pure stupitity of our government. If you are not a legal citizen, you have no rights, by issuing identification cards you are sending a false hope to all who are not legal, to come here with know background checks and do whatever they want. They could be chid molesters, drug dealers, murderers, they also could be great citizens. The question is, how will you know who these people are without background checks. Maybe this will be a scam to arrest all illegal citizens, and deport them. I work at the INS building, and this just irks me to no end. Why is there an INS if we are just going to give out indentification cards and allow people to live here, who are not legal. Great false sense of hope Gavin. You piece of sh-t.

We can have a LOT of fun with this San Francisco mayor!!!!

Beginning Saturday, May 3rd----he is going to have a weekly radio show on every Saturday at 12 Noon Pacific time!!!

Citizens from throughout the country will be able to listen to it (through their computers) and call into the show!!!

I am going to call in (with my fake Spanish accent) and say-----"I am an illegal who just got here yesterday. Where do I go to get my welfare and foodstamps".

Here is the link for the show----be sure to listen and call in----ESPECIALLY California citizens!!!!!

so, where are they going to get the money to support all these illegals?

don't tell me - they are going to raid the money in the state and city pension funds, right?

hey. just out of curiosity.. will an american citizen be able to qualify for these benefits that the illegals will be able to take advantage of?

who is this mayor? gavin newsom?

I just did a little research on this guy. and already I found out that - yes, he plans on using money from the pension funds to finance the freebies to the illegals.

in the wikipedia bio of the guy, under "social policy", there is already mention of him redirecting funds from quote, "budget reserves" for school needs.

yeah. right. "budget reserves".

san franciscans need to understand that their future pensions are at stake here. it is up to them to stop this unfair policy that many us politicians are pushing to support illegals.

it gets better. this guy even had "universal healthcare" approved for all san franciscans.

again, where is all this money going to come from?

has this guy did any research on where the funding for this program is going to materialize from?

another example of irresponsible politics.

maybe the doctors will agree to work for less? that would do the trick. force doctors to accept lower. will it work? only time will tell.

Actually, it gets even better........

Newsome has been running ads on Spanish television and radio, telling all of the illegals to come to San Francisco----as it is a "sanctuary city" and they will get medical and EVERYTHING else that they want and need!!!

He has used money to place billboards everywhere throughout the state---again telling illegals to come to San Francisco for "sanctuary".

Radio stations throughout Southern California are playing Newsome's radio ads on their stations----hoping that all of the illegals will leave Southern California and head for San Francisco.

Personally, I don't see how the citizens haven't physically grabbed this guy and physically removed him from office----as he is going to DESTROY San Francisco-----and US citizens/tax payers will be picking up the tab!!!!

A lot of San Francisco citizens won't even be able to leave to escape the hell----as they won't be able to sell their houses!!!

The best thing to happen for San Francisco right now---would be if ICE went in there and did a few HUGE raids-----just to let the illegals know that they will NOT be protected and provided sanctuary, no matter what Newsome is saying!!!!

Get this, if your in Mexico or Canada you cannot get that station. I get almost any other station here but that one is cut off. I regularly listen to Lou Dobbs and get it no problem, but cannot get that station. Weird to say the least.
