educate our community and prettiest that speak the language of our communities about what the outcomes of this legislation is that it's safe to come forward that you'll not be deported important reporting the crimes. if there's a classed of individual that pose a threat to public safety whether or not their citizens we should look at all the safeguards to hold those are folks. we shouldn't treat you differently if you pose a threat to the safety of the public and ultimate we want to look further into that conversation. i believe those amendments does establish a strong balance for now and aid the concerns raised by many in the community. the amendments are before us today. i at one point make one correction and that is on page 7
3:31 pm
line 24 and 25 there's a strike out in the sentence i'll read the two snendz. all the respect of law enforcement agents may continue to collaborate with the authorities but this collaboration is not limited to investigation and that was struck you tell that are permitted under local policy are applicable under city law. i think that the criminal investigations are permitted in the local policy and so i want to bring that strike out back other than that the amendments are before us. i know we'll continue to talk with multiple folks. >> supervisor campos. >> thank you, mr. president.

will be supporting the legislation in its present form but no legislation is perfect. and what i think should be the emphasis today is the fact that the elected family of san francisco is sending a very clear message that local law enforcement is here to protect the public and not to be become an arm of immigration. and in the spirit of making sure we speak as loudly and with one voice i will be supporting those amendments not because they're perfect but i think what supervisor kim has dunn done in collaboration a has struck the right balance is it allows those of us who want no carve outs and those of us who want them to find a middle ground so the
3:35 pm
