Libby Schaaf, mayor of Oakland, CA, a sanctuary city, alerted illegal aliens of upcoming ICE raids in her city.
Authorities claim 800 criminals may have escaped because of Schaaf’s actions.
From Daily Caller:
Acting ICE director Thomas Homan harshly criticized Oakland mayor Libby Schaaf Wednesday for warning illegal immigrants that the agency was planning a detention operation.
“She intentionally put law enforcement officers at risk. Being a law enforcement officer is dangerous enough. But to give criminals a head’s up we’re coming next 24 hours, increases the risk.” He continued that “there are 800 we were unable to locate because of that warning. That community is a lot less safe than it would have been.”
The DOJ is now looking into obstruction charges, per Fox News:
The Department of Justice is looking into whether Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf obstructed justice by warning Northern California residents of an impending raid by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).
The agency’s acting director, Thomas Homan, told “Fox & Friends” Wednesday morning that the DOJ is “reviewing” whether Schaaf broke any laws by telling her constituents ICE would be raiding the area in order to arrest people violating federal immigration laws.
Schaaf needs to go. She 100% did the wrong thing.
Unfortunately, Californians are too far left for their own good.
