The San Francisco Rapid Response Network is a collaboration between SFILEN and SFILDC. We have organized and implemented this system to respond to heightened enforcement actions by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).
Our system consists of the following three components:
- 24 Hour Hotline. The number is 415-200-1548. We have language capacity in Spanish, Arabic, and Chinese (both Cantonese and Mandarin). We usually have just 1 dispatcher at a time, so if the line is busy it is because we are speaking with someone else. In order to make sure that we respond to our callers in a timely manner we ask that individuals calling use the line only to report ICE activity in San Francisco. Alameda County also has a hotline at 510-241-4011.
- Raid Verification – We do raid verification for all calls of alleged ICE Enforcement activity within San Francisco. Raid verification is an important component of our work in order to dispel myths and lessen fear. We physically go and verify or announce false alarms to rumors about ICE activity.
- Attorney Activation – If an individual is detained after an ICE raid or ICE Activity we will activate our attorneys to go down to 630 Sansome (immigration processing center) to file for representation of the individual. We will also work to secure long term representation if the person needs it.
