In October 2013, the San Francisco Board of Supervisors unanimously voted to reject the vast majority of ICE hold requests to detain immigrants in our local jails for pick-up by federal immigration authorities. While this means that the city will generally not cooperate with ICE hold requests, there are narrow exceptions that could result in such detention. ICE hold requests and these exceptions will be explored for the education of immigration and criminal attorneys to ensure that the newly enacted ordinance is being properly implemented. Please join us to learn more about the new limitations on San Francisco's cooperation with immigration authorities and how it could affect your clients!
