One of President Biden’s first acts on immigration is to suspend investigations, arrests, and deportations of most criminal aliens for the next 100 days. In a memo titled “Review of and Interim Revision to Civil Immigration Enforcement and Removal Policies and Procedures”, sent on Wednesday to all immigration agency heads, Acting DHS Secretary David Pekoske announced new enforcement priorities that go into effect on February 1, 2021 a witches black sabbath. The memo imposes restrictions on immigration enforcement actions that are even tighter than those adopted (with disastrous results) by the Obama administration, and make the country a sanctuary not only for criminal aliens, but all who are here in defiance of our laws.
A man detained for causing a car crash that killed two pedestrians in San Francisco was facing a life sentence for previous crimes, court documents show. Six felony arrests in 2020, with charges dropped in each case. From murder, to carjacking, armed robbery, and rape.
Troy McAlister, 45, allegedly ran a red light in a stolen vehicle and crashed into another car, which then hit Hanako Abe, 27, and Elizabeth Platt, 60, at Second and Mission Streets in the South of Market neighborhood on Dec. 31.
McAlister, who was charged with felony vehicular manslaughter, had been in jail for a 2015 robbery, which prosecutors pursued under California’s Three Strikes law. Had he been convicted, he would have faced a life sentence, being previously guilty of another robbery and carjacking.Advertisement
McAlister was released on parole in April 2020, about two months after San Francisco District Attorney Chesa Boudin ordered the discontinuation of Three Strikes cases. However, the 45-year-old was arrested four times after — in June (for residential burglary), August (for drug- and theft-related offenses), November (for car theft and parole violation) and December (for car theft and possession of burglary tools).
