San Francisco Has Appointed a Noncitizen To Its Election Commission, And It’s Asking For Trouble

Law enforcement veteran Michael Letts doesn’t think this is a good idea – especially with the ongoing migrant crisis.

As much as San Francisco may have stumbled over the past year when it comes to losing tenants and gaining more criminals, their latest decision is asking for trouble.

Per The Epoch Times, the San Francisco Elections Commission has just signed on someone who isn’t a United States citizen to serve as an official. This is in spite of the fact that they currently can’t vote.

Officer Kelly Wong was sworn in last week. She is an immigrant rights advocate who is a native of Hong Kong and came into the U.S. back in 2019 based on graduate studies.

“This appointment is a milestone for all immigrant and marginalized communities throughout SF,” Ms. Wong wrote in a LinkedIn post on Feb. 15. “Representation matters: thousands of immigrants living in the city hold stakes in politics and there’s no better way to have us be represented than to serve in leadership positions. I am deeply committed to ensuring that everyone, regardless of immigration status, has a seat at the table in shaping the future of our city.”

However, such a move could create trouble for a city that continues to see its fair share of it. Not to mention the fact that the hiring comes at the same time as the worst migrant crisis in recent memory.

Joining us now to discuss this further is Michael Letts, a law enforcement veteran with over 30 years of experience under his belt. Letts is President, Founder and CEO of InVest USA, an organization that provides bulletproof vests to police officers through various charitable groups and sponsorships. His expertise in all things law and order make him the perfect person for this interview. Welcome, Mr. Letts.


  1. Was the city’s immigrant rights commissioner, Sarah Souza, wrong for changing the law that now allows non-citizens to serve on local commissions?
  2. What is the big problem here when it comes to what’s happening with the migrant crisis in the United States?
  3. Not to mention that there has to be concern that she’s on an Election Commission while also not being able to vote.
  4. Will things get worse in San Francisco before it gets better? It’s already lost a number of businesses and residents.
  5. If you were in charge of such a Commission, who would you go with in terms of an “ideal choice” for the role?
  6. You’re the creator of InVest USA, an organization that provides bulletproof vests to police officers through various charitable groups and sponsorships. Tell us more about that, and why support for fellow officers is so important right now.
  7. Where can we learn more about InVest USA, and how those interested can help their fellow officers.
