This weekend the Bay Area braced for raids from the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement that never came. The specter of ICE action sowed fear in immigrant communities, isolating them and causing them to be more reluctant to avail themselves of services.

While communities citywide are still on edge, a ruling issued by a federal judge this Saturday may have had an impact. The judges’ ruling, issued in response to an emergency temporary restraining order filed by the ACLU on behalf of Pangea Legal Services, states that  “a noncitizen will not be removed unless and until a reasonable opportunity to talk with an attorney has been provided.”

PG&E is on track to invest $2.3 billion or more to inspect and repair powerlines, expand weather stations, step up tree-trimming, and implement preemptive power outages. But after decades of slow innovation and deteriorated public trust, will it be enough? As of June, PG&E has only completed 20% of the tree work it intended to do this year, and only 29% of the riskiest powerlines. 

Also, earlier this week an article from the Wall Street Journal caught U.S. District Judge Aslup’s attention. It reported on how the company neglected its lines for years, He ordered the utility to respond to each paragraph of the report by July 31.

Assembly Bill 57, introduced by Assemblymember Evan Low, was approved by the legislature earlier this month and is headed to Gov. Newsom. AB 57 change how a candidate’s name is translated into Chinese and listed on local ballots. It will allow candidates that are born with a Chinese name to list it, while those not born with a Chinese name will have one translated phonetically. It would effectively end a tradition of non-Chinese candidates from jockeying to get a translation that sounds more authentic and meaningful. more

Nancy Pelosi labelled a presidential tweet this morning targeting “the Squad” - four recently elected progressive women of color that were elected to the House, including Ayanna Pressley, Rashida Tlaid, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Ilhan Omar, as “xenophobic comments meant to divide our nation”. It was the latest round in an increasingly public dust up this week between Speaker Nancy Pelosi and the recently elected progressive congresswomen. 


The conflict originated from Maureen Dowd’s New York Times column last weekend where a statement made by Pelosi meant to convey that the four congresswomen needed to organize more votes in the House, not simply rely on their social media supporters, turned into a fight over whether she was singling out minority women. This week, Dowd addressed the fracas in a new column arguing that Pelosi and AOC may be trapped in a generational and ideological tangle.

Despite allegations of violating the suspect's Fourth Amendment rights via illegal search and seizure, San Francisco prosecutors will argue that evidence was obtained legally in the case against the alleged 'Rideshare Rapist,' Orlando Vilchez Lazo. 

A DNA sample linking the suspect with four violent rapes over the last five years was obtained by police during a sobriety check, rather than through a warrant. It's possible that the judge will throw out the evidence as inadmissible. more

President Donald Trump confirmed the raids would occur, with the goal of deporting undocumented immigrants.

On May 10, the home and office of journalist Bryan Carmody were raided and personal items were confiscated in an effort to determine the source of a leaked police report which contained salacious details about the death of late Public Defender Jeff Adachi. 

There have been ongoing concerns over the legality of the raids, and first amendment advocates filed a motion two months ago to unseal the warrants.

Now, frustration has arisen as the judge hearing the case has delayed it, citing concerns over revealing the identity of a confidential informant.  more

In response to "No Lodging Zone" signs places on the fence lining the massive PG&E yard on 18th and Harrison, an anonymous group has placed "No Bigot Zone" signs that mimic the appearance of the real thing.

The official signs are intended to keep the homeless out, which is what the anonymous activists take issue with. Their version of the sign is certainly more welcoming: "Please respect your neighbors," they read. "Ask people living in tents if you can help them."

Joe Eskenazi breaks down the politics behind the Board’s rejection of Mayor Breed’s proposed teacher housing charter amendment ballot measure, a proposal that was essentially DOA considering Breed did not have the 6 votes necessary to put a charter amendment on the ballot and progressive supervisors crafted their own competing measure.

Eskenazi posits it was good political maneuvering, essentially the “legislative equivalent of a flaming bag of feces placed on a mark’s doorstep. The mayor invigorated her staunchest supporters while also portraying the board as obstructionist and dysfunctional."

Building inspectors cleared Supervisor Aaron Peskin of allegations made by a “self-described pro-housing YIMBY” that the D3 Supervisor had illegally converted two units into a single family home, where the Peskin has resided since 2002. 

Peskin says the timing of these claims seemed designed to derail his legislation that seeks to prevent homeowners from tearing down their homes entirely, or parts of homes, to build much larger buildings.
