A man whose son was murdered by an illegal immigrant in San Francisco said he is “furious” about Gov. Jerry Brown for signing a bill to make California a sanctuary state on “Fox and Friends” Wednesday, and feels he is betraying Americans to favor foreign criminals.
“I’m furious, and I’m waiting now for the Justice Department to go after these guys,” the father, Don Rosenberg said. “It’s not just outrageous what they’re doing, it’s illegal.”
“This has been going on for years, and it certainly wasn’t unexpected on my part,” he added. “We have laws and that’s what made this country a great country. And those laws have to be followed.”
Rosenberg said Brown was giving preference to the safety and feelings of illegal aliens, instead of focusing on the security of law abiding residents.
“He [Brown] made a comment when he signed the bill that this was a balance of public safety versus reducing the fear of those here illegally … There is no balance between criminals and public safety,” Rosenberg said. “Everybody should be fearful. As a matter of fact, those people that are here illegally and haven’t committed other crimes should be fearful too. Because they weren’t a target to be deported but now they’re going to be.”
Rosenberg encouraged advocates against illegal immigration to get more involved in the public discourse or risk allowing sanctuary states to spread across the country and eventually become national policy.
“Whatever starts in California ends up going across the nation. So If we can defeat it here, it will be a lot harder for it to take hold some place else,” he concluded.
