This can’t be real. Then again, when you read where this event took place, it’s no surprise. San Francisco will dole out $190,000 to an illegal alien from El Salvador after police handed him over to immigration enforcement officials, which is a violation of the city’s sanctuary city statute. Pedro Figueroa-Zarceno shouldn’t have been here. He was here illegally. He should have been deported, but he sued and now will get a nice payday because this liberal bastion that has people like Nancy Pelosi representing them doesn’t want federal immigration laws to be enforced. The guy even had the temerity to say what happened to him was “unfair” and an “injustice” (via Associated Press):
A man from El Salvador in the U.S. illegally who sued San Francisco after police turned him over to immigration authorities in violation of the city’s sanctuary law is set to be awarded $190,000, his attorney said Thursday.
Pedro Figueroa-Zarceno, 33, reached the settlement agreement with the city attorney’s office, said Saira Hussain, a staff attorney at the Asian Law Caucus who represented Zarceno. The agreement must be approved by the Board of Supervisors.
“We have to insure that each and every local law enforcement official is following those sanctuary policies and we are seeing in Mr. Figueroa’s case that didn’t happen,” Hussain said.
Figueroa-Zarceno sued San Francisco in January for violating its sanctuary city law.
The construction worker said he went to police in December 2015 after getting a call from authorities that his stolen car had been found. Instead of helping him, he said, officers detained him and called immigration authorities.
He was taken into custody by federal authorities outside the police station and was in jail for two months. He has been fighting his deportation since his release.
“What happened to me was very unfair and it was an injustice,” Figueroa-Zerceno said. “I went into the police station to seek help and they didn’t tell me what was happening and they arrested me and treated me badly.”
Chalk this one up on the list called this is how Trump won.
