Our prayers are with Danielle Bologna, the San Francisco woman who joined us on today's show. Danielle's husband and two sons were senselessly and brutally murdered last month by Edwin Ramos, an illegal immigrant from El Salvador. Thanks to San Francisco's "City of Refuge" policy, Ramos remained in the United States despite TWO prior convictions for gang-related felonies. And as if two felony convictions weren't reason enough to deport him, Ramos was also arrested on a gun charge in March, but authorities again failed to place an immigration hold on him.

The blood of Anthony, Matthew and Michael Bologna is on the hands of San Francisco officials and Mayor Gavin Newsom in particular, a staunch defender of the city's sanctuary policy.

From the ashes of this tragedy we see a real Power to the People opportunity, and over the coming days and weeks we will keep you updated on what you can do to make your voice heard to leaders around the country. In the meantime, click

I usually don't advocate litigation, but I wonder if Ms. Bologna can sue the City of San Francisco, the mayor, city council, and any others who were involved in making a refuge city of San Francisco. Something must be done to ensure that this tragedy doesn't happen to anyone else.

I saw Ms. Bologna on a TV show and she was absolutely heart-broken. This was a tragedy that should never have happened in the first place. A law suit wouldn't bring her family back, but it might bring some measure of closure that she so desperately needs and may stop this from happening to someone else.

I actually heard a lawyer on one of the TV commentary shows say that it made no real difference that this was an illegal alien; the shooter could have been American-born. What the frick??? We know American-born people kill other people. I thought when I heard it that was a stupid-lawyer type answer when he couldn't bring himself to agree that the "sanctuary city" concept is wrong. He went into automatic lawyer mode and was attempting to shift focus onto another point. We're not talking about "could have been"; we're talking what actually happened. This shooter was an illegal alien and does no good for the illegals who are not committing crimes. Middle-class America sees Ramos as a criminal who benefitted from the "sanctuary city" concept and that's all they see.

As happens, a policy that was meant to do one thing evolved into something else entirely. From what I understand, the policy was meant to protect (illegal alien) kids from being deported and invoked this policy. Unfortunately, in Ramos' case, a policy to help juveniles grew into a policy to shield all illegals aliens.

A good deed never goes unpunished. Unfortunately, it was the Bologna family who faced the punishment.
