Re: “To Undermine Sanctuary Cities, Trump Orders Cuts for Lead Safety, Homeless Shelters, Childcare, Many Other Programs

According to Professor Bill Hing at the USF School (who was interviewed last evening on NPR/KQED) the only money Trump can touch is related to security related concerns. There are laws which govern what types of monies can be withheld by the president. Because immigration falls under Homeland Security only funding for policing, security, etc can be withheld.

But, I suppose we'll see....

As was already mentioned the GOP is cutting those programs across the board so BFD

Also they're not allowed to leave the US since they're carrying around somebody else's ID and SS#.

I know a guy who came here illegally from Mexico who had to go through a rigorous process of getting into the US within a Mexican human trafficking group. He said majority of those trafficked through the US are indeed gangbangers but I'll save that story for another time. Once they arrive to a border town (between US/MEXICO) somebody from the black market provides them with a social security # and ID from some random average Joe in the US. This allows them to have access to these clinics/healthcare and other benefits we legal citizens receive. I

Re: “To Undermine Sanctuary Cities, Trump Orders Cuts for Lead Safety, Homeless Shelters, Childcare, Many Other Programs

Teddy how does illegals have anything to do with these programs? When you're not documented or how you like to call it illegal you CAN'T get any assistance unless you have a social security number these are federally funded programs. People with a mentality like yours is what's wrong with our country!!!!!! You're justifying these cuts as sending illegals back you're so ignorant and uneducated. These cuts affect poor people and those in so much need like our senior citizens. Oh wait let me guess the money is better used building a wall.. oh wait Trump said we'd get reimbursed by the Mexican government which is total lies!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Well, he does believe that torture works! The only worse thing he could do for Oakland is to erect billboards of his face posted all over the city - that stupid-looking face would be enough to keep illegals and legals alike from coming here.
Bill Wylie - just follow the rules of etiquette and stop shouting your ignorant and grammatically incorrect drivel!

Re: “To Undermine Sanctuary Cities, Trump Orders Cuts for Lead Safety, Homeless Shelters, Childcare, Many Other Programs

This is hardly shocking. These are programs that the GOP hates and thus would have been cut anyway.
Couple this with the fact that California, overwhelmingly, voted against the thin skinned, petulant, narcissistic, snowflake in chief and one could argue that such reprisals were inevitable.

Re: “Protesters Join Hands Around Lake Merritt in Oakland to Protest Trump, Hate Crimes

IT DOES NOT MATTER, HOW MUCH, THEY PROTEST, OR WHAT THEY HAVE TO SAY. WHILE OBAMA WAS DESTROYING THE USA, WE FOUGHT HIM, USING THE LAWS & THE COURTS, & HE COULD NOT, BE STOPPED!!! ...BECAUSE HE WAS "THE PRESIDENT"....
YOU CAN DO NOTHING NOW, TO STOP PRESIDENT TRUMP.
HE IS, GOING TO MAKE, AMERICA, GREAT AGAIN!!! ... AND YOU, WILL NOT, UNDERSTAND, HOW THIS WILL WORK OUT, UNTIL
AFTER IT HAS BEEN DONE; BECAUSE YOU LIBERAL PEOPLE ARE COMPLETELY IGNORANT REGARDING HOW A NATION, MUST OPERATE AS A WHOLE IN ORDER FOR IT TO THRIVE AND TO SURVIVE...OK? GOD BLESS YOU ALL.

Re: “To Undermine Sanctuary Cities, Trump Orders Cuts for Lead Safety, Homeless Shelters, Childcare, Many Other Programs

JUST FOLLOW OUR USA LAWS AND SEND THE ILLEGAL'S BACK TO THEIR OWN COUNTRY'S AND THE CITIES WILL GET THEIR MONEY; THE LAW OF THE USA MUST NOT BE BROKEN BECAUSE SOME PEOPLE WANT TO BREAK IT
BECAUSE IT SUITS THEIR OWN PURPOSES...THE LAW IS THE LAW FOR
EVERYONE...

Re: “As Trump Advances Pipelines, Oakland Councilmember Rebecca Kaplan Calls on CalPERS to Divest

Thank you Rebecca Kaplan. I urge you to run against Libby Schaaf for Mayor. The fact is most think she's way in over her head and the fact that the odious Peggy Moore is still on her staff--was she vetted thoroughly at all? I also call your attention to En bridge which has 3 lines planned for the Duluth/Superior area and dreams of tr sands oil tanker on the Great Lakes.

Yes, that's the fix for Calpers. Every city council member in Ca needs to tell them how invest, and where. Utopia!!

Not sure about 100k, but it doesn't matter. 50k absolutely. I was there for a couple hours. So nice to see a very peaceful demonstration in Oakland that does not end up in window breaking and throwing things.

O'Malley and entire family should be charged. Really think this is the first time this is happened? Contra Costa County is the most corrupt police force in the world as far as I'm concerned it's reasons like this that the mafia was invented

Re: “Oakland City Council Questions Need for Court-Appointed Police Monitor, Delays Renewing Contracts

We've had oversite for many years. I not sure what it's supposed to accomplish. I remember the "riders" they were fired along time ago but what deficiencies in the department is the continuing oversight trying to correct?
