White House comments on Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf's ICE warning

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

ICE said officers made 232 arrests from Sunday to Wednesday arrests and renewed threats of a bigger street presence in California, where state law sharply limits cooperation with immigration authorities at local jails.

ICE chief Thomas D. Homan compared her to a gang lookout snitching on police. Speaking in her office, the mayor said she stood by her decision to reveal an operation she learned about from confidential "credible sources". Organizer Erica Leyva said parents should have guardian contact information on hand and their children's documentation in a folder.

Berkeley Mayor Jesse Arreguín commended Schaaf for alerting Bay Area communities of the potential raids "responsibly" in a manner that did not put ICE agents at risk.

Here is the entire News Release from ICE:232 illegal aliens arrested during ICE operation in Northern CaliforniaSAN FRANCISCO- U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) deportation officers arrested 232 individuals for violating federal immigration laws in the San Francisco area of responsibility (AOR), extending from the Bakersfield area north to the OR border, during a four-day targeted operation that ended Wednesday.

Another 115 "had prior felony convictions for serious or violent offenses", the statement added. Some of the individuals arrested during this operation will face federal criminal prosecutions for illegal entry and illegal re-entry after deportation. "She gave them warning, and there were 800 that we were unable to locate because of that warning, so that community is a lot less safe than it would have been". She also said she checked with legal counsel before making the announcement last Saturday night and did not believe she was obstructing justice.

"They can continue the political debate", Loyola Law School professor Laurie Levenson told the newspaper.

Schaaf and her supporters say she did the right thing. "It is Oakland's legal right to be a sanctuary city". Jerry Brown 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 USA -born children.

The arrests were part of a four-day targeted operation that ran from the Bakersfield area to the OR border. "Rather than focus on people who are risky criminals, we hear ICE may be terrorizing communities, including family members who are citizens".

The White House confirmed this week that the Department of Justice was launching an investigation into a California mayor who tipped-off illegal immigrants of impending ICE sweeps; calling the left-wing politicians actions "outrageous", reports the Los Angeles Times.

ICE won't confirm reported California arrests; says sanctuary cities 'not immune'
California became a sanctuary state January 1, barring police in most cases from asking people about their immigration status. It would be stronger if the mayor had released addresses of the raids or advocated for people to resist ICE, they said.
