There is a great lawsuit being filed against the sanctuary city of San Fransisco by the Balogna family. In June 2008, Tony Balogna and his two sons were murdered allegedly by an illegal immigrant named Edwin Ramos. This illegal immigrant was protected by the city of San Fransisco.
Edwin Ramos has a long criminal history. At the age of 17 he commited two violent felonies, one was gang related and the other was an attempted robbery of a pregnant woman. He is a member of the gang MS-13 that targeted Hispanic people just because they weren’t in the gang. Edwin’s latest arrest was on March 30, 2008 for gang and weapons charges, but San Fransisco refused to file charges against him. He was released from jail on April 2nd, and then just two months later allegedly commited a triple murder.
San Fransisco knew Edwin Ramos was an illegal immigrant, he was convicted of two violent felonies, and they did nothing. They arrested him again and refused to file charges, doing nothing. Nothing. The sanctuary city may have to wake up and get with the real world.
Unfortunately, the city of San Fransisco has absolute immunity from lawsuits that challenge its ordinances. What a crazy loophole, how can the city have absolute immunity? They violated federal law!
The only chance for this illegal immigrant lawsuit to get through, is for it to go in front of a jury. The jury can nullify the stupid San Fransisco loophole and allow the wrongful death lawsuit against San Fransisco. The best outcome would be for San Fransisco to have to pay millions and millions, realize they need to take responsibility for the illegal immigrants in their city, and Mayor Gavin Newsom would have to pay at least $100,000 from his personal bank account because of his responsibility (or lack of responsibility) which resulted in the death of the Balonga family. It is a true shame that San Frasisco could be so irresponsible for so long, that it took the death of three good Americans for people to wake up and realize how wrong San Fransisco is.
