ICE v. Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf battle heats up

ICE v. Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf battle heats up

Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf did just that in recent days, giving illegal aliens in her city a heads-up that an ICE rade was probably coming.

Homan, in a statement, said sanctuary jurisdictions like San Francisco and Oakland "shield unsafe criminal aliens from federal law enforcement at the expense of public safety".

"I know that Oakland is a city of law-abiding immigrants and families who deserve to live free from the constant threat of arrest and deportation", she said in a statement that circulated widely on social media over the weekend.

ICE agents arrest 150 in Oakland, California despite the mayor's warning.

Homan blasted so-called sanctuary laws in San Francisco and Oakland, saying they endanger immigration officers who aren't allowed in jails and therefore must make more arrests in the community.

Among those at large are Oakland residents with multiple prior removals, said James Schwab, a spokesman for ICE in San Francisco, a field office that spans 49 counties from Bakersfield to the OR border.

ICE has sent repeated hard-line messages since President Donald Trump took office previous year, declaring that undocumented immigrants should "look over [their] shoulder" and that politicians in sanctuary states should be prosecuted. But Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf says that's not true and warned residents that the raids were going to happen.

"We believe our community is safer when families stay together".

Kushner loses top-secret security status
President Donald Trump's son-in-law Jared Kushner's clearance was similarly downgraded, Politico reported Tuesday . She said Citigroup negotiated the 2017 loan with Kushner Cos' business partner, a real estate developer.

Deportation officers from U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement's (ICE) Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO) arrested 145 individuals in South and Central Texas during a seven-day enforcement action, which ended February 16.

David Chiu, a Democratic state assemblyman, said Trump 'has declared war on our immigrant communities'.

"She's on the threshold of obstruction of justice for doing what she did", Brass said.

According to ICE's fiscal year 2017 report, the five most common criminal convictions nationwide among those arrested by the agency were driving under the influence of alcohol, possessing or selling "dangerous drugs", previous immigration offenses such as falsifying citizenship claims, traffic offenses and assault.

"We're here to stand for justice and due process for all people", said Anand Singh, president of Unite Here!

ICE did not confirm the Atwater arrests of Sunday morning, but said in a statement more than 150 people who violated federal immigration laws have been arrested in Northern California since Sunday. "For a prosecutor, it's not just looking at criminal history, but also their work situation or family history".

According to Schaaf, the Trump Administration believes immigrants are criminals. "I'll say this to the mayor and every other politician that wants to vilify the men and women of ICE - we are not going away, we are going to keep enforcing the law". "This is racist and it is false", she said. He expressed alarm and irritation with Schaaf claimiung her actions put his officers at risk, and endangered her own citizens.

Ivan Espinoza-Madrigal, of the Lawyers' Committee for Civil Rights and Economic Justice, said it was unclear if any of the 68 people posed a threat to the community and slammed the increase in detainers as federal fearmongering.
