  • ICE Director Condemns Oakland Mayor's “Reckless” Warning About Impending Raids

The U.S. Justice Department is reviewing Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf's warning about Immigration and Customs Enforcement raids in the Bay Area, according to White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders, CBS San Francisco reports.

Another 115 "had prior felony convictions for serious or violent offenses". "We believe our community is safer when families stay together". He said the community should continue these raid warnings, work with businesses to protect employees from raids and educate undocumented communities on their rights. Those who have outstanding orders of deportation, or who returned to the United States illegally after being deported, are subject to immediate removal from the country.

The arrests were part of a four-day targeted operation that ran from the Bakersfield area to the OR border. She tendered a public warning to illegal immigrants that an ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcement) raid was forthcoming.

Acting ICE Director Thomas Homan on Tuesday said that as a result of Schaaf's warning, hundreds of "public safety threat criminals" in Northern California evaded arrest - and claimed her alert actually made the community "a lot less safe than it would've been" had those arrests been made. Among the arrests, ICE agents highlighted a citizen of El Salvador who was in Fresno County and had previous convictions including assault with force.

SB 54 went into effect on January 1 and, apparently, Homan's prediction about how it would impact ICE's enforcement activities has now come to pass. "California better hold on tight", Homan warned in early January. Jerry Brown, also a Democrat, down to local mayors have resisted a Trump administration immigration crackdown that they contend is arbitrarily hauling in otherwise law-abiding people and splitting up families that include US -born children.

The mayor has repeatedly defended her actions, saying Wednesday that she was not tipped off by "official sources" and that she didn't reveal specific locations. We chalked it up to just something a very frustrated president said while blowing off steam. "And that's now under review by the Department of Justice, and I don't have anything else to add".

Notwithstanding any other provision of Federal, State, or local law, a Federal, State, or local government entity or official may not prohibit, or in any way restrict, any government entity or official from sending to, or receiving from, the Immigration and Naturalization Service information regarding the citizenship or immigration status, lawful or unlawful, of any individual.

Numerous other arrested illegals had criminal convictions from Mexico and Guatemala throughout Northern California.
