san francisco's board of supervisors has support of snoop dogg. he posted a video that said, it is time and accomplished woman led the city, and gives a brief history of san francisco's mayors, and says, that was then, and london breed is now. he has almost 18 billion followers. amy sent warning -- a recent warning, your number the president of the united states called the mayor's actions out, and called them a disgrace.>> reporter: good morning. we heard the president of the united states basically called
the mayor of oakland disgraceful for her actions, if you have intelligence, learning new about impending federal raids in your city, would you go out like she did, and warn your immigrant community?>> it depends on what information we have on the ground here in san francisco, the mayors have been talking over the past few weeks, sharing information, and we are hearing that both from the law enforcement community, and the active ice community. we are talking every day with our community police department, they set up a 24 hour rapid hotline for the community. we are actively aware of everything that is happening on our streets.>> have you received information about impending raids that you have chosen not to share? >> we haven't seen anything locally here that would cause
us to have concern, but that is not to say it won't come. what is coming out of washington dc is every single day, quite frankly, a joke. they are trying to distract from the white house, and the mess they are creating in washington, so they are doing everything they can to push out the blame, push out the dialogue to other places throughout the united states. and trying to pick on the state of california and cities like san francisco and oakland. we are not going to change who we are, and i will make sure we do that as a city.>> his argument was that, states and cities like oakland, the federal government, when it comes to immigration, you can't defy the federal government, do you agree with that?>> unfortunately, jeff sessions needs to check his u.s. constitution and read the 10th amendment once again. basically, public safety falls to the states, we are a sanctuary state, we are a
sanctuary city, we will not change that. we are not going to back down just because jeff sessions said something, and just because donald trump said something and wants to cause a distraction. i want to make sure that we stand toward what san francisco values.>> do have the support of the other law enforcement agencies, in addition to help patrol your city in the sanctuary city idea?>> this isn't something where we are going out seeking political support from different agencies, this is a situation where we, san francisco, or one of many many other major u.s. cities, it is a sanctuary city, and we believe it is the safest way to make sure our residents are protected, and in the benefit of public safety that we are doing this, we are supported by police chiefs around the country, and we are
not going to back down from that. we work with our law enforcement agencies throughout our state to make sure we adhere to these policies. we are safer because of it at the end of the day.>> do they support you in their actions?>> 100%. we have some of the best men and women in our police department in san francisco, i am so proud of them every single day. they deserve a mayor that is proud of them and supports them and what they do, but we are thankful for them and we cooperate as well with our sheriffs department, we work with chp, and all law enforcement agencies. we are a sanctuary city, but we are also part of a sanctuary state.>> let's talk about tasers here, and where you sit on this. there seems to be two sides of the story, we have a ballot that would create a policy, and on the other side, we have next week come of the police commission saying, hold on, we want to draft a policy, we want to vote on it possibly, where do you stand?>> i stand where the police chief stands, we want policies implemented,
bottom line. i think it is something our police officers need, and it is in the best interest of our residents in san francisco. they have this in front of them, dating back to last fall, and today they have not acted on anything, and therefore a valid measure was put in june. it is much better if the police adopt a policy that works for our officers and community members as well, but until they act, and until they move forward with the policy, i'm going to be supporting the measure. if they do move forward with a policy that works for our community, then it is moved.>> have you worked with the police officers union on this subject?>> i have been in active discussions over the past few weeks, we meet every single week, and two days ago, my office talked about many issues, tasers amongst them, and we will continue to engage with it. this is something we agree on. this is an area where we
believe our police officers should have tasers in san francisco. we want it lamented today.>> you approved what was a long time in the making, affordable housing project, can you guarantee one that is going to get done, and number two, this is not going to be mailing errors -- millionaires in these high-rise condos?>> this is going to be a 10 year project, and 40% of the units of the 1500 units that are going to be built are going to be affordable housing units, so it is both low and middle income individual families. it is very important that we focus on our middle income housing that we haven't really paid attention to in the past few decades. we need firefighters, police, nurses to live in this city, and they want to be a part of the neighborhood. but, we are going to have a
