Long story short... after public outcry and threats from the U.S. Attorney's Office, the City of SF has said it has discontinued both the practices of flying illegal alien juvenile criminals home and outsourcing them to group homes. Promising words. But this is only a change in policy - not ideology - as is clear from the comments of the Mayor and especially William Sifferman, the head of the Juvenile Probation Dept.
