|SF Board of Supes Passes Sanctuary Law; Mayor Won't Honor It|
|Tuesday, 13 October 2009 13:47|
Immigrant rights advocates and youth cheered when the San Francisco Board of Supervisors voted 8-2 to pass the immigrant youth policy on Tuesday – requiring that undocumented youth NOT be turned over to federal immigration officials upon their arrest (they would still be turned over if convicted of a felony). But Mayor Gavin Newsom, who is now running for governor, "will give no credence" to the legislation, according mayor's spokesman. Instead, the mayor will continue to direct law enforcement officials to turn youth over to federal officials as soon as they're arrested on felony charges.
CALIFORNIA RESIDENTS: Call the Mayor's office to voice your opinion on this! Be sure to leave a message if you do not get a live person as your message will still count.
