Sanctuary policy in the spotlight Thursday 

Supervisor David Campos will holda  hearing Thursday on the implementation of the legislation adopted by Board of Supervisors to change The City’s sanctuary policy.

The legislation adopted by the Board of Supervisors had an effective date of Feb. 10, and Campos has said that means The City should no longer be following the city’s old sanctuary policy. He has said the approved legislation should prohibit The City from reporting undocumented youths arrested on felony charges to federal authorities for possible deportation. Instead, The City should only be reporting them upon a conviction.

The Juvenile Probation Department and Mayor Gavin Newsom disagree with Campos, and stand by reporting youth arrested on felonies.

The hearing will be held by the board’s Rules Committee at 10 a.m., at City Hall, in room 263.
