Pedro Figueroa-Zarceno, an illegal alien from El Salvador, is positioned to be awarded a hefty $190,000 settlement from the City of San Francisco… because police “violated” the sanctuary city laws by reporting him to immigration authorities.
Zarceno, 31, walked into a San Francisco police station in December 2015 to report a stolen car, but when officers discovered he was actually an illegal alien with an outstanding warrant for his arrest, they called immigration officials, who nabbed him when he walked out the door.
Zarceno was reportedly convicted of drunk driving in 2012, and had an outstanding warrant for deporttion from over a decade ago.
However, he turned around and sued the city in January 2017, claiming that he was a victim of a crime and should have been protected under the city’s sanctuary policies.
Tuesday, a proposed settlement of $190,000 for Zarceno was introduced to the San Francisco Board of Supervisors. It will be reviewed by the Government Audit and Oversight Committee, then sent back to the Board of Supervisors for approval, the San Francisco Examiner reported.
Fox News host Tucker Carlson got into a hot debate on his show Friday night over the matter, with immigration advocate Roberto Hernandez.
Carlson said it is “insane” that the city is paying a settlement to an illegal alien.
“You shouldn’t pay a criminal for breaking the law,” Tucker said. “And that’s what San Francisco is doing.”
