Justice Dept. Reviewing Schaaf ICE Raid Warning

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

Hundreds of protesters blocked the entrance to the ICE building in San Francisco, surrounding a message chalked onto the pavement which read "Bay Area United Against ICE!"

"I continue to feel confident that what I did was the right thing and was legal", Schaaf told reporters.

The White House on Thursday called Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf's warning of an imminent U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement raid last week "outrageous" and confirmed that the Department of Justice was reviewing whether she broke the law.

"Sanctuary jurisdictions like San Francisco and Oakland shield unsafe criminal aliens from federal law enforcement at the expense of public safety", Homan said. "It is Oakland's legal right to be a sanctuary city". He said Schaaf's actions have made residents less safe. "We believe our community is safer when families stay together".

ICE deportation officers and special agents arrested 212 individuals for violating federal immigration laws and served 122 notices of inspection (NOIs) to businesses in the Los Angeles area of responsibility (AOR) during a five-day targeted operation. "The governor is simply wrong when he claims otherwise".

Benitez confirms massive Newcastle injury setback
Newcastle are now 13th in the league but remain just two points clear of the relegation zone with 11 matches remaining. But with the lack of goalmouth action, I thought it was going to be hard for us to find two goals. "That's it".

Sanders didn't elaborate but Homan said Wednesday that the Justice Department was looking into whether the mayor obstructed justice. We can be grateful that neither either heard or heeded Schaaf's warning. "If the politicians in California don't want to protect their communities, then ICE will".

ICE officials confirm they arrested 9 people on Wednesday, February 28.

Sanders is just the latest member of the Trump administration to take issue with Schaaf's actions. Since that course of action would create many more problems than it would solve, we expressed our opinion that it is hard to imagine Trump actually taking that extreme action. 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. It renewed threats of a bigger street presence in California, where state law sharply limits cooperation with immigration authorities at local jails.

Homan said the DOJ is "reviewing" Schaaff's comments for possible obstruction of justice during a segment on Fox News's Fox & Friends.
