Supervisor David Campos sent a letter to the Juvenile Probation Department Tuesday asking them to hand over their caseload for the past two years and the forms they use to report youth to immigration.

The letter is in response to the announcement that the probation department will continue reporting youth to immigration when they are booked rather than when their felony is upheld as the supervisors voted last week to approve.

The purpose of the query letter is “to make sure they are not using city funds to help immigration authorities,” Campos said.

The board will examine their caseloads to see if it has decreased, given that they have reported some 160 youths since July of last year to ICE, Campos said.

The Juvenile Probation Officer Department is required to respond to the inquiry, Campos said.

Campos also gave an award of recognition to the Mission Peace Collaborative for their work in helping families affected in the September shootings on 24th Street.

Ricardo Garcia-Acosta from the Community Response Network received the award and called for an end to violence.

“The main message is that this type of violence is not going to be accepted,” Garcia-Acosta said to the board.

The collaborative, which includes organizations like Arriba Juntos and Carecen, will stage two processions for peace tomorrow.

One will begin at 4 p.m. at 16th and Mission; the other will start at 4:30 p.m. on 24th and Potrero. They will meet for a rally at 5:15 p.m. on 24th and Harrison.

Supervisors Campos and John Avalos will be there.

Also at City Hall…

District 9, which includes the Mission, will get one more seat in the Eastern Neighborhoods Citizens Advisory Committee, and Campos gets to select who sits in it. The Board of Supervisors passed a resolution unanimously.

The citizen committee is in charge of advising the Planning Department on which public benefits to prioritize in the development proposals. The eastern neighborhoods plan was adopted last year and laid out how land is to be used in that area.

Previously the committee had 13 members; now it will have 19. The committee currently has one member from District 9. The additional seat was requested by Campos because of concerns that there was not enough representation for Mission District residents.

The Board also voted unanimously to establish an official Rental Subsidy Program for Low-Income Families, a program the city currently runs with money appropriated specifically for this program.

The Human Services Agency is responsible for running the program that is funded through the general fund.

The Board eliminated a provision that will cap the subsidies at $500 a month and would decrease it as the household income increases. Families can stay in the program for up to five years, instead of two as was previously proposed. The board also eliminated an oversight committee for the program. Instead the Homeless Coordination Board will oversee any complaints and provide the city with twice-annual progress reports.

The program is aimed at helping the 2,000 homeless families in San Francisco, according to the board. Other findings report that there are some 1560 family members — which include 760 children — living in single-room occupancy hotels.

The item was introduced by Supervisor John Avalos and cosponsored by Supervisors David Campos, Eric Mar and Ross Mirkarimi.

1:03 p.m. The Board of Supervisors will vote today on granting the entertainment commission greater oversight on shutting down troubled clubs, as reported by Vanessa Carr last week. They will also make a final vote in giving the Mission one more seat in the Eastern Neighborhoods Citizens Advisory Committee, and on creating the rental subsidy program for low-income families.

2:18 p.m. Supervisors passed item six unanimously. It will approve the request for proposal for clean power from PG&E.

Mission Loc@l reported from the committee last week.

2:36 p.m. Supervisor Mirkarimi speaks in regard to the declawing of cats, calling it animal cruelty. “We want to make sure we send a strong message,” he said.

Dufty speaks on it now: “This is important legislation to recognize declawing of cats is unnecessary,” Dufty said.

“Within our shelter system, there are three cats for every dog,” Dufty said.

We have an overabundance of cats, Dufty said, because when they get declawed they have behavior problems and end up in shelters.

2:43 p.m. San Francisco cannot declaw cats unless absolutely necessary. The Board of Supervisors voted 8-2. Michela Alioto-Pier and Sean Ellsberg voted against it.

2:46 p.m. Supervisor Mirkarimi speaks about item 21, regarding reports by the superior courts on surplus property owned by the San Francisco Unified School District.

2: 49 p.m. Supervisor Eric Mar introduces a resolution against Californians for population stabilization. It is a resolution urging media outlets to exhibit responsibly in airing commercials by CAPS. “Caps is an anti-immigrant campaign blaming immigrants for envioremental problems,” Mar said.

2:51 p.m. Supervisor Campos introduces a letter of inquiry for our probation department to clarify some points. The letter of inquiry tries to get to the bottom of how the department will go forward on the enforcement of those laws. 287G the department of homeland security tries to get local government to get in the business of ICE, they essential become arms. The Chief of police in La said that it doesn’t make a lot of sense to be an arm of ICE.

3:15 p.m. Supervisor David Campos is sending a letter to the Juvenile Probation Department asking them to answer if they “consider themselves a de facto arm of the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement?”

The letter will also ask to provide all of their caseload for the past two years. This is to see if their caseload has decreased given that they have reported some 160 youths since July of last year to ICE.

Additional requests include which forms they use when they book a suspect.

The purpose of the query letter is “to make sure they are not using city funds to help immigration authorities,” Campos said.
