Undocumented youths arrested on felony charges in San Francisco would have to be convicted before police could turn them over to federal immigration officials under a new policy approved by the San Francisco Board of Supervisors.

The supervisors' 8-2 vote is enough to override an expected veto from Mayor Gavin Newsom.
