The parents of Jamiel Shaw, a standout high school football player who was shot and killed, allegedly by a gang member who is present in the United States illegally, have asked the Los Angeles City Counsel to enact a City Ordinance designed to crack down on gang members who are in the United States illegally. Under a current and controversial LAPD Policy known as “Special Order 40” LAPD officers are not permitted to contact people for the purpose of discovering their immigration status. The Shaw family is seeking to have this policy overturned by the Los Angeles City Counsel.
