Oakland’s Mayor Just Committed A Felony By Warning Illegal Aliens That ICE Was Coming

There was a time when this would have seemed remarkable, but since we’re talking about California in 2018 it’s probably par for the course. The Democratic Mayor of Oakland, California, Libby Schaaf, sent out a public warning this weekend which was supposedly designed to “protect the residents” of her city. Only this particular public service announcement wasn’t intended for all of Oakland’s residents. It was only applicable to the illegal aliens residing there.

She was warning them of “credible information” she had received, indicating that the next big ICE sweep would be targeting illegals in her city. She was not seeking to induce any sort of “panic” there, mind you. She just wanted to keep people safe. (Fox News)

The mayor of a sanctuary city in California issued a warning that U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) could be conducting a raid in the area as soon as Sunday — ratcheting up tension with the feds while giving her constituents an early heads-up.

Libby Schaaf, the Democratic mayor of Oakland, shared the warning — which she said she “learned from multiple credible sources” — in a press release on Saturday, “not to panic our residents but to protect them,” Fox 2 reported.

The mayor said she didn’t know further details of the ICE operation, but claimed she felt it was her “duty and moral obligation as Mayor to give those families fair warning when that threat appears imminent.”

Here’s the thing. When you’re an elected official and you warn people about a flu epidemic, a wildfire approaching the city or a water main break, you’re responsibly protecting your residents. When you warn a criminal that law enforcement is coming for them you’re engaged in something known as “harboring.” (Specifically, to clandestinely shelter, succor, and protect improperly admitted Aliens.)

Is this some sort of general guideline or suggestion? No. It’s actually embedded in federal law and has been for as long as anyone reading this has been alive. Here’s how it’s structured, courtesy of the Cornell Law School.

8 U.S. Code § 1324 (a) (1) (A) (iii)

Any person who, knowing or in reckless disregard of the fact that an alien has come to, entered, or remains in the United States in violation of law, conceals, harbors, or shields from detection, or attempts to conceal, harbor, or shield from detection, such alien in any place, including any building or any means of transportation shall be punished as provided in subparagraph (B).

8 U.S. Code § 1324 (a) (1) (B) (ii)

A person who violates subparagraph (A) shall, for each alien in respect to whom such a violation occurs in the case of a violation of subparagraph (A)(ii), (iii), (iv), or (v)(II), be fined under title 18, imprisoned not more than 5 years, or both.

Do we really need to say much more than this? The White House has shown no hesitation in pursuing a termination of federal funding for cities engaging in this behavior. The President seems to be a big fan of the idea of “lock them up” when it comes to such violations. Why is the Mayor of Oakland exempt from this law?

Not to mention the fact that this isn’t some average citizen we’re talking about. This is the chief executive of a major city who was elected and took an oath to uphold the law. Rather than doing so, she is actively thwarting the efforts of federal law enforcement officials. Clearly, the legislators and the general populace of Oakland would have no interest in removing her from office, but she’s certainly not immune from federal prosecution. Nobody is. It’s simply insane that we’re now living in a society where such a thing has been normalized.

Gov. Faubus Would be Proud of Becerra’s Stand in “Sanctuary” California

Jennifer Van Laar   Jennifer Van Laar  Posted: Jan 25, 2018 12:01 AM

In California we’ve become accustomed to our “leaders” going out of their way to give things to illegal aliens, from college tuition to driver’s licenses and everything in between, but somehow thought they’d have to draw the line at breaking federal law. That illusion was shattered last week when the state’s Attorney General, Xavier Becerra, held a press conference threatening federal law enforcement agencies and employers with dire consequences if they attempted to uphold or comply with federal immigration law in the state.

If you haven’t been following the issue, California’s new “sanctuary state” laws essentially prohibit the use of any state funds, personnel, or buildings for immigration enforcement, and prohibit employers from sharing information about their employees’ immigration status or employment documents (such as on an I-9) with federal authorities without a court order. 

As I watched the press conference, I became enraged that my state government would prioritize the “rights” of illegal aliens over the safety of my family. I spoke to Fight Sanctuary State’s Don Rosenberg, who is leading an effort to repeal the new laws, to see what he thought about Becerra’s remarks. When we first spoke he didn’t have a lot to say, just that, “I’m trying to comprehend the incomprehensible.” He later sent me an email with his thoughts.

“It’s not often in my life that I have been at a loss for words, but after watching Becerra explain how EVERYONE must obey the new laws, I’m tongue tied. Not because I don’t know what to say, but because I don’t know what he said.

“What I heard Becerra say is that if you are a citizen of California you cannot abide by federal law as it concerns illegal aliens. You must follow California law. To hell with the Supremacy Clause. To hell with right and wrong. You have no rights, but those here illegally do.

“You must follow the law even if it means you are guilty of obstruction of justice. You must protect, aid and abet and harbor illegal aliens – because they have more rights than you do.

“Orval Faubus must be proud. Not because he would agree with who you are protecting, but because he would cherish your blatant disregard of federal law. His despicable attempt to ‘protect’ whites from blacks is no different than California’s outrageous attempt to protect illegal immigrant criminals from receiving the justice they so richly deserve – while claiming the purpose is greater public safety.”

Hearing Becerra, Kevin De Leon, and Jerry Brown say these laws somehow make Californians safer is a joke. They put everyone at risk, especially communities with large numbers of immigrants, since local jails are forced to release criminals they’re previously reported to ICE back into the community, and ICE is now forced to apprehend them in these neighborhoods instead of at a secure jail.

“He calls these illegal alien criminals ‘Californians.’ Mr. Becerra, let me remind you that people who illegally invade California are no more Californians than I would be a Becerra if I broke into your home and refused to leave. You’re not asking anyone to ‘respect their privacy.’ You’re asking people to protect illegal aliens from prosecution and deportation.

“How do you spell hypocrite? B-E-C-E-R-R-A. You threaten people, saying, ‘Ignorance of the law does not allow you to escape punishment,’ but show your ignorance by ignoring the fact that the people you want to protect are violating the law by entering the country illegally. You threaten businesses with $10,000 fines if they violate your ‘trumped’ up privacy law but ignore the fact that these businesses (maybe ignorantly) violated the law by hiring these people in the first place.”

Sanctuary city/state proponents always like to make a distinction between people who came here illegally and have been law-abiding since they arrived and those who continue to commit crimes. While I appreciate that a portion of illegal immigrants desire to simply make a better life for themselves, there is no such thing as a non-criminal illegal immigrant. They already broke the law by entering the country illegally. I have a number of friends whose parents immigrated legally from war-torn countries in Central and South America, requiring great sacrifice, and they are all vehemently opposed to people who did it illegally being rewarded for it.

“But if you are so concerned with everyone following the law, let me tell you where to start.

“My son and many others are dead because your predecessor, Kamala Harris, didn’t enforce the law. Neither did Gavin Newsom, George Gascon, or Jerry Brown. Hundreds continue to die every year at the hands of illegal aliens because the law is not enforced. As you said, ‘ignorance of the law does not allow you to escape punishment.’ When will we see you indicting these scofflaws for refusing to follow the law?

“With any luck we’ll see ICE come to California to protect law-abiding people from these illegal alien criminals then see a federal prosecutor charge you with multiple violations of 8-1324, to protect us from you.”

California has entered a bizarro world in which evil is rewarded and good punished; where criminals have rights and law-abiding people live in fear of asserting their rights. Whether through repeal, court action, or the federal government asserting its rights, change can’t come soon enough.

Editorial: Sanctuary for Illegals Becomes Blacks Worst Nightmare

author-imageJesse Lee Peterson reveals war brewing over health care, education, other services

California is now a “sanctuary state,” thanks to Gov. Jerry Brown and liberal Democrats in Sacramento.

The Golden State is home to an estimated 2.3 million illegal aliens. And police are no longer permitted to ask suspects about their immigration status or assist with federal immigration-enforcement activities.

Yes, California voters are dumb for voting in liberal Democrats who continue to pass laws that endanger citizens.

For black Americans who might not understand this – you too will be impacted! Now that California has been designated a “sanctuary state,” illegal aliens, including MS-13, will flock to the state in droves and they’ll end up in the black community.

For the past 27 years, my nonprofit organization, BOND, has been trying to educate blacks on this issue with town hall forums, media, rallies, etc. Along with groups like FAIR, California Coalition for Immigration Reform and the late Terry Anderson, we’ve been warning the state and the nation of what was coming, but most blacks refused to listen.

We couldn’t get blacks to support a border wall or to vote against liberal Democrats who are selling them out for the Hispanic vote. Most blacks are so brainwashed by their godless black leaders, they’re willing to vote against their own self-interest. They blindly follow corrupt Democrats like Barack Obama, Maxine Waters, Karen Bass, Kamala Harris, Mark Ridley-Thomas and others who use them. All Democrats have to do is accuse anyone who opposes illegal immigration of being “racist,” and that’s enough to put blacks in a hypnotic trance and make them vote for Democrats.

The illegal immigration issue is out of control. The Hispanic population is growing rapidly, and it’s flexing its political muscle. There’s a warfare brewing between black and Hispanic gangs in Los Angeles, and it’s just a matter of time before it explodes. As a result, decent blacks are fleeing California and moving down south.

Illegal aliens are draining California taxpayers. According to Fox News, Los Angeles County taxpayers paid a whopping $1.3 billion in just two years for illegal-alien benefits and programs – nearly a quarter of the amount spent on the state’s needy population.

Over the past 60 years, the black community traded in values and principles for welfare and programs. As a result, most blacks rely on government assistance. Blacks are fighting with illegals in Los Angeles for health care, public education and other services.

I know many qualified blacks who’ve applied for all types of jobs in Los Angeles County and weren’t hired because they don’t speak Spanish; blacks are upset about this. If blacks stood up and demanded that their elected officials do something about this issue, the problem could be solved. But they’re so angry and preoccupied with blaming the white man, they can’t see that they’re voting for their own self-destruction.

The NAACP has completely sold out blacks. It supports amnesty, and it has allowed illegals to hitch their plight to the civil-rights struggle of blacks. The shameless NAACP is also pushing the insidious lie that increased immigration is helpful to the black community.

Members of the corrupt Congressional Black Caucus unanimously support amnesty for Hispanics and for the more than 3 million immigrants of African descent.

Except for a handful of black conservatives like myself, Sheriff David Clarke, Larry Elder, Walter Williams, Thomas Sowell and Peter Kirsanow, there aren’t any black voices boldly speaking out about the devastating impact illegal immigration is having on black Americans.

Democrats are giving out all kinds of taxpayer funded goodies to seduce Hispanics and addict them, just like they did to blacks. They’re brainwashing, spoiling and dumbing them down to use them for votes. There are some decent Hispanics who don’t agree with rewarding illegals, but they’re too afraid to speak out.

And now that California has legalized the sale of recreational marijuana, the state will attract more criminals and the worst kind of people. What a shame!

President Trump and Congress are deliberating the future of Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA. Trump has reiterated that he wants to work with Democrats to find a permanent legislative solution to allow those protected by DACA to stay in the country, but only if it comes with a long-promised border wall and major changes to the immigration system.

Blacks need an advocate on this issue, and they have a friend in President Trump. But if they don’t wake up and stand for what is right, they will be permanently replaced.

For blacks to free themselves from this nightmare, they must first turn back to God and love Him with all their soul and might. Second, they must abandon group thinking and the Democratic Party. If they do this, we can make America great again overnight.
