COOPERATION OF SCAAP RECIPIENTS IN THE REMOVAL OF CRIMINAL ALIENS FROM THE UNITED STATES
We were able to locate an official “sanctuary” policy for only two jurisdictions that received at least $1 million in SCAAP funding, the State of Oregon, which received $3.4 million, and the City and County of San Francisco, which received $1.1 million and has designated itself as a “City and County of Refuge.”
The Oregon policy begins by stating, “No law enforcement agency of the State of Oregon or of any political subdivision of the state shall use agency moneys, equipment or personnel for the purpose of detecting or apprehending persons whose only violation of law is that they are persons of foreign citizenship present in the United States in violation of federal immigration laws.”
SCAAP is the "state criminal alien assistance program." It's purpose it to reimburse the state for costs associated with housing illegal aliens in our jails. (It most certainly doesn't cover the whole cost)
This audit makes the interesting point that Oregon asks for this "assistance" and receives quite a bit while at the same time being as friendly as possible to illegal aliens.
It's a shameful day when Oregon gets singled out, along with San Fransisco, as being criminal friendly.
NOTE: Our governor wants to have his cake and eat it too. I can't imagine him being more illegal alien friendly but then he has the nerve to call the SCAAP in Oregon "underfunded" in his budget (search term highlighted)
