The man charged with killing a father and two sons on a San Francisco street last month was one of the youths who benefited from the city's long-standing practice of shielding illegal immigrant juveniles who committed felonies from possible deportation, The Chronicle has learned.He tried to rob a pregnant woman, but was nevertheless deemed as worthy of protection by the generous folks in San Francisco City Hall. When was the last time you were treated with such kindness by government?
Edwin Ramos, now 21, is being held on three counts of murder in the June 22 deaths of Tony Bologna, 48, and his sons Michael, 20, and Matthew, 16. They were shot near their home in the Excelsior district when Tony Bologna, driving home from a family picnic, briefly blocked the gunman's car from completing a left turn down a narrow street, police say.
Ramos, a native of El Salvador whom prosecutors say is a member of a violent street gang, was found guilty of two felonies as a juvenile - a gang-related assault on a Muni passenger and the attempted robbery of a pregnant woman - according to authorities familiar with his background.

Presumably MS-13 gangster Edwin Ramos would have been eligible for amnesty (pre-triple murder) under last year's proposed legislation. He could have "renounced" his gang affiliation under the McCain-Kennedy bill and become a citizen, with all the rights and privileges. (See Sen Jeff Sessions Loophole List, Item #8.)
Danielle Bologna, the widow and grieving mother of Anthony, Michael and Matthew, appeared on Fox News today.
This is the totally avoidable pain and tragedy caused to American families because of an irresponsible government stuck on open borders.
