Decent Essays
Bang! A bullet left the chamber of a handgun, disrupting San-Francisco’s touristy promenade into chaos. Only one person was killed, an innocent woman named Kate Steinle.

Surprisingly, this took root and spread to city governments to help bring support to both illegal immigrants, and refugees. “In 1985, San Francisco passed a city ordinance that forbade city police or city magistrates from assisting Federal immigration officers”
