San Francisco’s Citizenship and Immigration office vandalized

Bay Area

SAN FRANCISCO (KRON) – San Francisco’s United States Citizenship and Immigration Services office was vandalized Tuesday, just one day before the inauguration.

Graphic graffiti was spray-painted all over the building at 630 Sansome St.

And although this was a minor assault on a federal building, security experts say given what happened back on Jan. 6th, government officials must stay focused making sure everything and everyone stays safe.  

Photos obtained by KRON4 show the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services building covered in graffiti.

“This is a part of the democratic process, you gotta have it go off smoothly. You must show the world that Americans can carry this off and we can do it on a peaceful system of government,” former FBI agent Rich Smith said.

Smith is the president of Cannon Street Incorporated, a private investigation company. From his perspective, this time around, it seems the Capital is quite secure.

“I don’t have any concerns about the Capitol, the force is overwhelming, they learned something, obviously late, but they learned that they need to have overwhelming force.”

Smith also believes the awareness of any criminal element is so strong, that if someone sees something they will say something, quickly and security forces will move in quickly.
