The San Francisco Police Department has ended its cooperation with FBI counter-terrorism efforts, disengaging from the FBI's Joint Terrorism Task Force as part of the city’s larger rejection of Pres. Trump’s executive order on immigration. The SFPD rationalizes this cut saying the cooperative would couple SFPD officers with federal agents in carrying out the requirements of the immigration order.
This is stupidity on steroids. The FBI's Joint Terrorism Task Force is one of the premier domestic counter-terrorism organizations on American soil. Its sole purpose is to combat terrorism - acts of terrorism and terror groups - on our shores. By shunning the JTTF, San Francisco now takes on the role of sanctuary city for terrorists and their organizations.
So, because of the Progressive mindset in San Francisco, the United States is on the verge of having a safe-haven for terrorists; a place where local law enforcement engages in acts that shield terrorists and terror organizations from the very federal law enforcement organizations tasked with keeping the country - and her citizens - safe from future September 11ths.
This could be the over-zealous move that backfires on San Francisco. Combating this lunacy could provide the avenue for federal intervention in sanctuary cities that even the most intellectually challenged Leftist can understand...we'll see.
