Int 0486-2014 *Melissa Mark-ViveritoImmigrationPersons not to be detained by the department of correction.IntroductionThe federal Immigrations and Customs Enforcement Agency (“ICE”) files an “immigration detainer” with the Department of Correction (“DOC”) when they believe an individual in DOC custody is subject to removal from this country. In filing such immigration detainer, ICE makes a request that the DOC detain the individual for up to 48 hours beyond when they would otherwise be released so that custody of the individual may be transferred to ICE. This bill would significantly restrict the conditions under which the DOC complies with these ICE requests. The DOC would only be permitted to honor an immigration detainer if it was accompanied by a warrant from a federal judge, and also only if that person had not been convicted of a “violent or serious” crime during the last five years or was listed on a terrorist database. Further, the bill would prohibit DOC from allowing ICE to maintain an office on Rikers Island or any other DOC property and would restrict DOC personnel from communicating with ICE regarding an inmate’s release date, incarceration status, or court dates, unless the inmate is the subject of a detainer request that DOC may honor pursuant to the law.Referred to Comm by Council  Action details Not available
Int 0487-2014 *Melissa Mark-ViveritoImmigrationPersons not to be detained by the police department.IntroductionThe federal Immigrations and Customs Enforcement Agency (“ICE”) files an “immigration detainer” with the New York City Police Department (“NYPD”) when they believe an individual in NYPD custody is subject to removal from this country. The immigration detainer serves as a request that the NYPD detain the individual for up to 48 hours beyond when the individual would otherwise be released so that the individual’s custody may be transferred to ICE. This bill would significantly restrict the conditions under which the NYPD complies with these ICE requests. The NPYD would only honor an immigration detainer if it was accompanied by a warrant from a federal judge, and also only if that person had been convicted of a “violent or serious” crime during the last five years or was listed on a terrorist database. The bill would also allow the NYPD to honor an immigration detainer even if not accompanied by a judicial warrant if the subject had been convicted of a “violent or serious” crime or is a possible match on the federal terrorist watch list and had previously been deported.Referred to Comm by Council  Action details Not available

Int 0491-2014 *Corey D. JohnsonHealthAmending sex designation on birth records.IntroductionThe New York City Health Code currently allows individuals to change the gender designation on their birth certificate if they have obtained a court order changing his or her name and undergone “convertive surgery.” This bill would allow individuals to change such gender designation by having a medical or mental health professional fill out an affidavit or affirmation attesting that the changed sex designation more accurately reflects the applicant's sex gender identity. The licensed professionals allowed to make such attestations would be as follows: physicians, doctoral level psychologists in clinical or counseling psychology, clinical social workers, master social workers, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, marriage and family therapists, mental health counselors or midwives. Such practitioners must be licensed to practice in the United States, and must include a declaration under penalty of perjury that the professional is licensed and in good standing and that the applicant’s requested correction of sex designation more accurately reflects the applicant’s sex or gender identity.Referred to Comm by Council  Action details Not available
Int 0492-2014 *Corey D. JohnsonHealthReporting and an advisory board on gender marker change requirement.IntroductionThis bill would create an Advisory Board relating to the effectiveness and implementation of the gender marker change requirements in Proposed Introduction Number 491-A and the New York City Health Code. It would require the Advisory Board to issue a report concerning the requirement and recommendations for changes and/or improvements, if any. The Board would consist of seven members, with the Commissioner of the Department of Health and Mental Hygiene (DOHMH) appointing four members, and the Speaker of the City Council appointing the remaining three. The Board members would include advocates for transgender people, licensed medical or mental health professionals who are permitted to make attestations pursuant to the gender marker requirement, and a senior staff person in DOHMH working on transgender and/or lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender issues. The Board would meet no less than every three months, and would assess the gender marker change requirement, including transgender people’s access to professionals who can complete the attestations for gender marker change applications, utilization of the amendment process, the number of applicants, processing time for applications and the requirement’s impact on transgender people. The Board would also make recommendations for improvements, if any, to the gender marker change requirement, including, but not limited to, best practices among policies for gender marker changes, and actions taken by DOHMH in response to such recommendations. The Board would be required to submit a report to the Mayor, the Commissioner of DOHMH and the Speaker of the Council on or before March 1, 2017 covering the subjects of the Board’s meetings.Referred to Comm by Council  Action details Not available
