KTVU Coverage


After the strong showing in Oakland on November 14, Oakland mayor Libby Schaaf and OPD chief Anne Kirkpatrick scheduled a special council agenda item on November 28 to discuss the ICE Raid and consider an OPD request for total impunity to work with HSI/ICE going forward simply by defining a raid as “criminal” – before the public hearing on December 5th – and before CM Kaplan and Brook’s resolution for OPD non-cooperation with ICE can be heard.

City Council members Desley Brooks and Rebecca Kaplan had set this item for a committee hearing with the OPD Chief in attendance on 12-5 only to have the Mayor and City Council President do an endaround and try to rush authorize ongoing OPD cooperation with HSI/ICE. 

Oaklanders and other Bay Area residents who want sanctuary legislation taken seriously around the Bay should attend. We need to put a stop to this.

Event announcement is here.
