The fact that the parents broke the law, ignored the processes and spent years lying to everyone is a crime both morally and criminally. They should pay the price for their actions and be forced to adhere to the law. Which means they leave the USA and go through proper channels to immigrate to our great country. Pay the fees, file the forms and wait. Like everyone else.
These children are victims, at least regarding the ones outlined in this article, are the exact type of immigrant we want and need. I am all for the advancement of their lives. But their parents are criminals who need to reimburse the city, county and state for the costs that they caused all to pay while they ignored the law and cheated the system. For their own selfish desires and wants.
I have NO sympathy for criminals who knowingly, willingly break the law for their own selfish desires. There are literally millions of people waiting to immigrate to the USA for reasons far more important than a larger paycheck.
Illegal is illegal regardless of the merits of their children. The actions of the parents undermine the entire fabric of our country and taught these young people at an early age that laws are only to be respected and followed only when you agree with them... That is wrong on every level.
Make the parents pay. Plain and simple. Either in tuition or in doing the right thing. Follow the law and get in line. Cheating is not moral.

This is outrageous. A single punch and the guy gets 9 years? Travesty if correct. What a ridiculous punishment. This isnt elder abuse, it may have been assault but the fact that the man was 71 has no bearing on the issue.
Our DA is out of hand. This type of sentencing is beyond excessive. People serve less time for murder and rape and even less time for stealing hundreds of thousands from elderly.

The children of illegals learn early on that they do not need to abide by the law or respect it... for they're taught by their parents actions that the law is applicable only when they "feel" that its appropriate.
This is a moral issue and one that illegal immigrants bring upon themselves. And therefore its no wonder that a large portion of their children end up as gang members and criminals, its what they're taught from their parents. To ignore the law, the process and to do as they please. And we teach them that they can by not enforcing the very laws that are here to prevent this moral deprecation.
And this doesn't even begin to touch on the fact that regardless of their reasons for breaking the law, immigrating to the USA by underground channels, they are in fact stealing the very opportunity from people who do follow the law and do wait their turn. People who do have legitimate claims to immigrate, not just because they want more money.
No amnesty, no forgiveness, no special treatment. Go to the back of the line and wait your turn. That is the only way to treat all peoples the same.

If you're here illegally, expect to be treated like the criminal you are...
Illegal immigrants are cheaters. They lie, cheat and steal for their own benefit. They do not benefit our community, our society or our country. They have cheated and deserve no special treatment, in fact, they should be deported and forced to the back of the line.
There are millions of educated, willing people waiting patiently for their turn to come to the USA. These people stole from each of them and they continue to steal from each of us...
Enough is enough. Either follow the rules and the law or face the consequences.

So we have had urban decay on lower State st, Cabrillo and all over the Funk Zone for years...all stemming from the cities ineptitude and gross mismanagement. And these buffoons are sticking their noses into the beehive that is public art? The BAR is the epitome of everything wrong with SB govt.. What a joke.

Really? Why is this being funded or even considered? This "bath house" is not a public resource, its a for profit venture. Sell it off to the highest bidder and collect years of tax revenue. The city should not be in business of renting event space or offering the bums a place to shower. The bath house has long since lost its value to the citizens of SB.
This ladies and gentlemen is why our city and our Govt is broke. What a joke.

Send any gang member between the ages of 17-34 into the military immediately. And if they're not US Citizens, gather them, their children and their parents and deport them immediately. And while you're taking out the trash, make sure to seize all their money and assets. I say we take every last penny they've stolen from us tax paying, law abiding citizen and give it to victims of gang crime.
Simple. In less than 5 years we'd clear the streets of the scum and send millions of illegal cheaters back home, penniless. After all they're the ones who lied, cheated and stole in order to better themselves...After 4 years of service, they can apply for citizenship and become American. Good for us, good for them.
By the way: There was not a single mention of race in my post. I dont care what color or ethnicity you are, if you cheat and you break the law, you're a criminal and deserve to be punished. Enforce the basic immigration law and we'll remove a large portion of these criminals and their offspring.

200+ tickets a day?
This isnt a public service, its revenue generation for the city. The overzealous meter maids are the dearth of our city and our society. I have never understood why people do this job. No one likes a parking ticket and no one likes a meter maid. Possibly the worst job in the entire country. Your duty is to give people bad days, every day. No wonder these "officers" appear to be so miserable.
No one fights them, because its such a pain in the butt. Its easier to just pay the extortion fee and move on... pissed at the city, the SBPD and the whole concept of fining your citizens for innocuous and meaningless violations.
Remember that most of these tickets are for very minor issues. A few minutes over the meter, not noticing the sign or the change of time on the sign... getting tickets on national holidays... Or how they do it in Samarkand, where they dont even have signs on the street, they put a few at the entrance to the neighborhood and call those adequate.

Glasses of water, showers, sprinklers, have virtually no impact on the greater amount of water use... its Ag that sucks up most of our water. For profits...
Ken, We can certainly survive without Avocados and Citrus and local beef. Go to your grocery store and look where 99% of your produce and meats come from... its not local. <1% are...

I dont have much sympathy at all for the avocado farmers, the citrus growers or the ranchers. To read that the may lose money because their subsidized businesses dont receive as much subsidized water is not a tragedy its reality... they can handle it and if they cant, go out of business.
There is no right to make years and years of ungodly profits off the precious resources which are for everyone's use... The world can do just fine without avocados or oranges. We can do just fine without the cattle. In fact we can import all of them without much cost... We cannot do fine without residential water.
Cut the farmers off. All of them. Let them feel the pain and let the land breath for a few years. If it rains, it rains. The Ag industry is a hold over from a bygone era and they and their tax credits, their discounted water, their chemicals pollution and their illegal immigrant work force, are not necessary for the whole to survive.
