Illegal Wins Massive Court Sum Because Authorities Dared To Enforce Law

San Francisco Awards Undocumented Immigrant $190,000 for Violating its Own Sanctuary Laws San Francisco Awards Undocumented Immigrant $190,000 for Violating its Own Sanctuary Laws

Tucker asked why San Francisco is willing to ignore federal law, but only for illegal immigrants.

Lawyer Saira Hussain tells SF Weekly that the Asian Law Caucus was introduced to Figueroa-Zarceno's case after his immigration attorneys reached out to FREE SF, a coalition of 21 organizations which together advocate for "community safety, transformative justice, immigrant rights, and self-determination". San Francisco has been a sanctuary city since 1989.

Figueroa-Zarceno, who spoke through an interpreter, described being stopped as he tried to leave the station, handcuffed and informed that he had to answer some questions. "Dad!" he said. "I could hear her telling them not to take her dad".

Figueroa-Zarceno sued San Francisco in January for violating its sanctuary city law.

A second 2013 ordinance, Due Process for All, prohibits San Francisco law enforcement from detaining people on behalf of immigration authorities for deportation unless they are wanted for a serious crime.

At the same time, the document states, a San Francisco police officer contacted the ICE duty officer directly and told him Figueroa-Zarceno was at the police station. It would later be discovered it was a civil immigrant warrant.

Instead of getting his vehicle back, Figueroa was led away in handcuffs and held in a detention facility in Martinez for two months. One recent case she mentioned was when an undercover officer, Joshua Fry, was caught on tape allegedly threatening to call immigration authorities on men in U.N. Plaza on May 5. A judge reopened the case after discovering that initial order lacked proper notification.

"I made a decision to file this lawsuit because of what I went through", said Figueroa in a statement.

"San Francisco has strong policies in place to encourage victims and witnesses to report crimes without fear of being deported, which include our sanctuary ordinance", said office spokesman John Coté.

The department is investigating and if any violations of policies and procedures are found, "there will be serious consequences", the statement said.

Coté insisted that "this proposed settlement is a fair resolution for all of the parties involved". Next week, the Police Commission has scheduled a discussion on the department general order regarding the city's sanctuary policies.

A bill called "Kate's Law" was approved by the U.S. House of Representatives that would make penalties tougher for foreign criminals who return to the country.
