Quote from the article: 'The cornerstone of Boudin's campaign is sabotaging immigration enforcement. He has called for prosecution and imprisonment of ICE and police officers for doing their jobs and vowed to create an "immigrant defense unit" within the DA's office to "stand up to Trump on immigration." While American veterans beg for money on San Francisco's feces-clogged street corners, Boudin will instead subsidize "universal legal representation" for illegal immigrants facing deportation.'
Quote from the article: 'His parents, members of the 1970's radical group the Weathermen, have been in prison since he was 14 months old, for roles in a 1981 Brink's robbery in Rockland County in which two police officers and a guard were killed. [...] "I'm sad that my parents have to suffer what they have to suffer on a daily basis, that millions of other people have to suffer as well." [...] "We have a different name for the war we're fighting now – now we call it the war on terrorism, then they called it the war on communism," Mr. Boudin said. "'My parents were all dedicated to fighting U.S. imperialism around the world. I'm dedicated to the same thing."'
