Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf one-upped her Democrat colleagues last month by publicly warning illegal aliens that an ICE raid was imminent. Though ICE officials arrested hundreds of illegal alien criminals in the sweep, ICE Deputy Director Thomas Homan estimated that 800 people were able to elude arrest.
Anyone with half a brain knew it was just a matter of time until some of those who were able to avoid detection were out committing crimes again. Less than a month post-raid, and here are three who’ve already been picked up again. Via Washington Times:
[Homan] said one man had been released under sanctuary policies in November, after jail officials ignored an ICE request to hold him. His deportation officers tried to arrest the man last month as part of their enforcement action in Northern California, but after Ms. Schaaf’s warning he was one of the more than 800 who eluded them.
He has since been arrested for robbery and weapons violations, Mr. Homan said.
Another man was arrested for “injury of a spouse,” and a third was arrested for his third drunken-driving offense.
“So if he’s getting arrested three times, how many times has he committed this crime? That is a public safety threat,” Mr. Homan said.
Homan also said that according to intel picked up by ICE agents, smugglers cartels are touting sanctuary jurisdictions to entice migrants – promising they’ll be delivered to sanctuary jurisdictions “where they will be protected.”
With people like Libby Schaaf in charge, we know California’s politicians won’t willingly repeal sanctuary state laws. That’s why we’re bringing the vote directly to the people. Click here to tell Jerry Brown, Xavier Becerra, and Kevin De Leon, “We’ve had enough.”
