San Francisco Approves Immigration Hold Limits

The San Francisco Board of Supervisors has unanimously approved a measure to limit police co-operation with federal immigration authorities. The vote came after the approval of amendments to let police hold some undocumented immigrants charged with violent crimes. Under the proposed ordinance, San Francisco police and sheriffs will refuse most requests to hold undocumented immigrants for immigration and customs officials. Christopher Martinez files this report.
