Ignacio’s Long Day

Yesterday was a long day for Oakland City Council President Ignacio De La Fuente. First, he spent most of the day with his family watching the opening of the rape trial of his son, Ignacio De La Fuente Jr.. Then he dashed over to City Hall for a press conference with Mayor Ron Dellums, announcing the city’s intention to make Oakland a sanctuary for all illegal immigrants. The city had only been a refuge for immigrants from certain countries. Dellums also announced that no city employee or police officer would assist federal raids on illegal immigrants.
