Mueller proposed an amendment to County Sanctuary Ordinance for individuals convicted of Murder, Rape, or Child Molestation. His amendment lost in 1-4 vote. ABC ran a news story on the vote. You can watch it here:

Some Caltrain engineers, maybe most of them, seem out of control with their horn use when southbound out of Menlo Park. The train is right there, its lights and its presence glaringly obvious, and yet the guy is leaning on the horn.

Freight train engineers give four blasts, as the protocol calls for. So do northbound Caltrain engineers. But not those going south. The bullet trains are even worse.

It's an abomination. It's an outrage. The woman who gave a Donald Trump motorcade a piece of her mind using one of her fingers is coming to mind now and again while waiting at the lowered pedestrian gate at the Ravenswood crossing.

so, the way I read this is that the San Mateo County Coalition for Immigrant Rights supports rapists, murderers and child molesters. Even if you are accused of those crimes, the SMCCIR would rather have you here in this country (and preferrably, I'm sure, living next door to SMCCIR members) than deported back to the country from which you illegally immigrated to the US. You've got to be kidding!!
