SF foes of Trump deportation plan discuss options  
sfgate.com

With President Trump‚¬Ä¬ôs recent executive orders hanging overhead like last weekend‚¬Ä¬ôs storm clouds, worried but resolute San Franciscans packed the 250-person Koret Auditorium on Wednesday night to figure out their next move against the Trump administration‚¬Ä¬ôs push to deport immigrants living in the country without proper documentation. Immigration rights advocates, attorneys, teachers and immigrants filled every seat at the community forum at the San Francisco Main Library hosted by the public defender‚¬Ä¬ôs office, united in a spirit of resistance. The administration released two memos Tuesday spelling out how it will go about implementing Trump‚¬Ä¬ôs executive orders, which widened the parameters on those prioritized for deportation. Rather than focusing on immigrants convicted of a serious crime, as practiced under the Obama administration, the memos prioritize deportation for those who have ‚¬Ä¬úengaged in fraud or willful misrepresentation in connection with any official matter before a governmental agency‚¬Ä¬Ě ‚¬Ä¬Ē a common practice among immigrants living in the country without documentation, who often use a fake Social Security number to obtain work ‚¬Ä¬Ē and those who have committed acts ‚¬Ä¬úwhich constitute a chargeable criminal offense,‚¬Ä¬Ě which can include any immigration-related crime such as illegal entry. Much of the discussion centered on Public Defender Jeff Adachi‚¬Ä¬ôs push to get more funding for his office to represent immigrants in immigration court.
