Earlier today on November 10th, Oakland City Council members Desley Brooks (the chair of the Public Safety Committee) and Rebecca Kaplan, issued a press release objecting to the cancellation of the November 14 ICE Raid hearing.
Kaplan said the action was “inappropriate” and Brooks described it as “troubling”.
The full press release can be read below.
On November 14, citizens of Oakland will still gather at the Public Safety Committee to have a long overdue public conversation about OPD cooperation with HSI and ICE. The meeting will begin at 6pm at Oakland City Hall.
