San Francisco's Sanctuary City Policy Should Not Harbor Felons

Please reevaluate San Francisco Administrative Code Chapter 12I: Civil Immigration Detainers in light of its failure to prioritize public health, safety, and welfare of San Franciscans. Anyone who has ever been convicted of a felony, violent or non-violent, should not be given a ticket to freedom because elected officials wrote Code Section 12I.3 to require San Francisco law enforcement officials to not expend City resources on requests for notification by Federal or State law enforcement agencies. Please amend the law to require San Francisco law enforcement officials to comply with such requests from Federal or State law enforcement agencies when the individual in San Francisco's custody has any felony conviction in their past.

Why is this important?

The tragic death of our Rincon Hill neighbor Kathryn Steinle on Pier 14 on July 1, 2015 brings to light a flaw in the current wording of San Francisco's Sanctuary City law as written in San Francisco Administrative Code Chapter 12I.

It is the aim of this petition to urge Mayor Edwin Lee and the San Francisco Board of Supervisors to update the City's Administrative Code to direct San Francisco law enforcement officials to comply with Federal or State law enforcement officials' requests for notification for any individual in San Francisco's custody who has a past felony conviction.

The City's core mission, as stated in the Sanctuary City law of San Francisco, is to ensure public health, safety, and welfare. Modifying the Sanctuary City law to end the currently required harboring of felons by our City's law enforcement employees helps improve the City's attainment of it's core mission to ensure public health, safety, and welfare of San Franciscans.
