San Francisco puts a stop to police turning people over to Immigration

The San Francisco Board of Supervisors this week passed an ordinance that prohibits police from keeping people in detention and turning them over to Immigration and Customs Enforcement, or ICE, if they do not have a record of violent crime. The ordinance, called “Due Process for All,” is the result of long weeks of organizing and lobbying on the part of a broad coalition of immigrants, women, victims of domestic violence, and diverse community groups. Our reporter Zaidee Stavely was at San Francisco City Hall at the time of the vote and has this story.

The complete story is in Spanish.

This story was produced as part of an Immigration in the Heartland Fellowship by the Institute for Justice & Journalism.
