San Francisco’s liberal policies have resulted in soaring crime rates and criminals armed with the knowledge that in all likelihood they will never be arrested, let alone prosecuted. Citizens have had to come up with ways to defend their property.

“Imagine having to clean out your car and leaving it open in public, just so people won’t break your windows. Oakland we looking sad man” said one witness. “We’ve heard of cars being left unlocked, windows rolled down, but now some people are leaving their trunks open too. It’s raising eyebrows as reports of car break-ins are on the rise in San Francisco and Oakland” reports abc 7.

Oakland’s Interim Deputy Police Chief Drennon Lindsey said the desperation “doesn’t really surprise me. ”Lindsey continued, “even if you think I’m just going to put my laptop in my trunk…if it’s on, they have technology to detect it in the car…even if it’s hidden.”

Former San Francisco Police Department (SFPD) Chief Garret Tom who spent 40 years on the force lamented “we’re in different times…that’s unbelievable.” SFPD has reported a whopping 32 percent increase in car break-ins this year compared to last year.

The city has seen a 25 percent spike in auto burglaries, with the same happening in Oakland. Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf said “we have got to do more to get us through this holiday season.”

Schaaf suggested people buy security cameras to protect their belongings, and help with surveillance. “Pointing the cameras towards the street and register it with the Oakland Police Department” said Schaaf.

CA to provide all low-income illegal immigrants health care at a cost of ‘$2.7 billion a year’

On Thursday, California Governor Gavin Newsom signed a $307.9 billion operating budget “that pledges to make all low-income adults eligible for the state’s Medicaid program by 2024 regardless of their immigration status” reports the Associated Press.

The guarantee of free health care for low-income immigrants here illegally, is a “move that will provide coverage for an additional 764,000 people at an eventual cost of about $2.7 billion a year” adds the AP.

According to the Kaiser Family Foundation, a health care nonprofit, people living in the country illegally in 2020 accounted for roughly 7% of the population nationwide, or about 22.1 million people. The border crisis and number of migrants entering the United States illegally has skyrocketed to historic levels since 2020 when President Joe Biden took office.

Medicaid nationwide is the current combination of federal and state governments assisting Americans and low-income adults and children to receive free health care, but the federal government does not cover those living here illegally.

“Some states, including California, have used their own tax dollars to cover a portion of health care expenses for some low-income immigrants” reports the AP. “Now, California wants to be the first to do that for everyone.”

“This will represent the biggest expansion of coverage in the nation since the start of the Affordable Care Act in 2014,” said Anthony Wright, executive director of Health Access California, a statewide consumer health care advocacy group. “In California we recognize (that) everybody benefits when everyone is covered.”

While 92% of Californians currently have some form of health insurance, “that will change once this budget is fully implemented, as adults living in the country illegally make up one of the largest groups of people without insurance in the state” the AP concludes.
