Workers at SF’s Pelosi Federal Building Urged to Go Remote amid Crime Wave

'If California offers a preview of where our country is headed, San Francisco offers an even starker warning...'

(Molly Bruns, Headline USA) Federal workers based in San Francisco received orders to work from home for the foreseeable future due to incidents near their office building.

Hundreds of employees in the Department of Health and Human Services who previously worked in the Speaker Nancy Pelosi Federal Building took the directive to work remotely if possible, according to the Daily Wire.

“In light of the conditions at the [federal building] we recommend employees … maximize the use of telework for the foreseeable future,” Cheryl Campbell, HHS assistant secretary for administration, wrote in a memo to employees.

“This recommendation should be extended to all Region IX employees, including those not currently utilizing telework flexibilities,” she added.

“Region IX employees” include HHS workers in California, Arizona and Nevada.

The building hosted several federal agencies, including HHS, the Labor Department, the Transportation Department and an office for Rep. Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., herself.

Outside of the building, drug dealers did gangbusters business. Addicts use the building’s concrete benches to partake in their newly purchased wares.

Several violent crimes and open drug deals took place in the building’s immediate vicinity, including a drug deal linked to a previous shooting, according to a statement from the regional District Attorney’s Office.

Over the past few years, since leftists have embraced radical social justice policies in lieu of law and order, murders in the city rose 20%; robberies and car thefts rose 14% and 13%, respectively.

Homelessness and drug abuse were also persistent problems, despite deaths from drug overdoses falling from their record highs in 2020.

In 2022, 620 fatal drug overdoses were reported.

An estimated 38,000 people within the city are homeless, up 35% since 2019.

Pelosi’s office recently made a statement concerning the safety of those working in the office building.

“Federal, state and local law enforcement—in coordination with public health officials and stakeholders—are working hard to address the acute crises of fentanyl trafficking and related violence in certain areas of the city,” the Pelosi spokesman said.

Rep. Kevin Kiley, R-Calif., reacted to the memo in a tweet.

“If California offers a preview of where our country is headed, San Francisco offers an even starker warning,” Kiley said. “This is where failed policies, radical politics, and public corruption are in their most advanced stage—and where residents are most rapidly fleeing.”
