White Supremacist Group Hangs 'Danger' Sign Over Sanctuary City

A white supremacist group protested San Francisco, one of the first cities to declare itself a 'Sanctuary City'. The group hung a banner over a tunnel on the interstate leading into the city warning people that there was 'danger' ahead.

Authorities were made aware of the unauthorized sign, but it had already been removed by an unknown party.

The white sign was hung from the overpass. Large letters read, "Danger Sanctuary City Ahead."

The word 'danger' is flanked by skull and crossbones symbols.

Across the bottom of the sign, it reads 'Identity Evropa'. The group describes itself on its website as a 'fraternal organization for people of European heritage located in the United States'.

Some have slammed the group as a 'white supremacist' or 'Nazi' hate group.

The group was founded by 31-year-old Nathan Damigo, a former Marine who was attending California State University at Stanislaus in 2016. Damigo initially recruited white college students, but the group claims it is now open to people of any age, as long as they’re of European, ‘non-Semitic’ descent.

On Twitter, the group posted photos of the sign and spread more warnings.

"PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT FROM IDENTITY EVROPA San Francisco is a dangerous sanctuary city where the law does not apply to illegal invaders," the warning read. "Enter at your own risk!"

Motorists driving by the sign began calling police to report it. Authorities came to investigate but say the sign was already down before they had the opportunity to remove it.

They’re not sure who took down the sign, but say it was up for a very short period of time.

The people who initially hung the sign would have had to trespass on a restricted area on the overpass above the tunnel. One reporter from KPIX 5 discovered a gate that led to the overpass left open by someone.

Damigo has landed himself in hot water on several occasions. At an alt-right rally in Berkeley last year, he punched a woman in the face when she confronted him.

He was one of the organizers of the Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, which ended in violence and led to one woman's death.

His own father disavows the group and Damigo’s activism. Peter Lodge, an adjunct professor at the University of Maine, disagrees with his son’s beliefs.

"I completely disavow his activities with the racist organizations," Lodge told the Lewiston-Auburn Sun Journal. "In no way do I support any racist organization."

"I have spent my life trying to bring people of all groups together regardless of race or sexual preference, to make the world better. I'm afraid I could not have the same influence on my son."

Sanctuary cities have come under fire. San Francisco is just one of three hundred cities that has declared itself a 'sanctuary city', and has instituted rebellious policies in refusing to comply with federal immigration laws.

The cities vow to protect and support illegal immigration.

Sanctuary cities have come head-to-head with the Trump administration. President Donald Trump has made good on his campaign promises to crack down on illegal immigration.

He's put pressure on sanctuary cities by threatening to pull federal funding if they continue to ignore federal laws.
