As Predicted, Illegal Aliens Libby Schaaf Warned Have Already Reoffended

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.”

San Fran’s Interim Mayor Says He’ll Go to Jail to Defend Criminal Illegal Aliens

After ICE raids rounded up nearly 200 illegal aliens in the Bay Area last week, San Francisco’s interim mayor, Mark Farrell, told reporters he’s committed to defending the illegal aliens arrested by ICE, and is willing to go to jail to defend the city’s sanctuary policies.

Farrell asked for $7 million a year to create a legal fund to defend San Francisco’s illegal alien population in immigration court.

Yes, you read that right. The leader of a city with literally tons of feces and used hypodermic needles on its streets wants to spend money instead on defending criminals against deportation.

Mayor Farrell doesn’t even see the irony in this tweet, which reads: “Our City and State are partnering together to keep our immigrant families and communities together. #SF is a #SanctuaryCity and will defend the rights of all our residents.”

His desire to keep families and communities together is limited to “immigrant” families, not native San Franciscans or Californians. He doesn’t seem to care about the families ripped apart by illegal alien crime in his city, including our own Don Rosenberg’s family.

Farrell also tweets about his desire for San Francisco police to have “every tool and resource available to them.”

Perhaps if those law enforcement officers were able to cooperate with ICE and illegal aliens were taken off the streets, they’d be better able to SAFELY carry out their duties.

Mayor Farrell, your duty is to the law-abiding citizens of San Francisco, not to criminals who are not even supposed to be in your city to start with. We are committed to making sure sanctuary city and state policies like yours are repealed and that elected officials like you who attempt to obstruct justice are rewarded with time behind bars.

Even the LA Times Editorial Board Disagrees with Lawbreaking Oakland Mayor

Sanctuary-loving politicians usually get a lot of love from the LA Times, but it seems that Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf crossed the line with her warnings of ICE raids last week.

The headline of an op-ed by the LA Times Editorial Board (by the board itself, not an op-ed submitted by a random contributor) published March 3 blared:

“It’s one thing to oppose Trump’s policies. It’s another to undercut the law”

Wow.

Her heart may have been in the right place in seeking to warn those at risk of incarceration and possible deportation. But some of those targeted by ICE agents could very well have been people with violent criminal pasts who can make no legitimate argument for avoiding deportation. And regardless, tipping off her community that immigration officers were about to enforce duly adopted federal immigration laws crosses a line that ought not to be crossed.

State and local officials often justify their pro-Sanctuary beliefs by saying immigration laws are federal laws they shouldn’t bear the burden of enforcing. True enough, says the LA Times editorial board. But that doesn’t mean you actively help the lawbreakers!

[I]f we want people to engage with the legal system, trying to subvert lawful enforcement of immigration codes sends the opposite message. Local subversion of federal rules would be justified in only the most dire circumstances.

And the circumstances illegal immigrants in Schaaf’s jurisdiction find themselves in are not the “most dire,” even if they don’t fit her preferred political mode.

But the federal immigration codes the resisters oppose aren’t inherently inhumane or morally repugnant, despite the Trump administration’s enforcement policies. Nations have a right to protect their borders and set rules about who may come into the country.

If you really believe in your cause, Mayor, fight for it with “every legal tool” you have, but don’t cross the line.

By all means, fight Trump at the polls and in the courts with every legal tool at hand, but to advocate disobeying properly enacted laws and regulations is more likely to make the situation worse than better.

When even the LA Times editorial board says you’ve crossed a line, you’ve really crossed it.

Of course, we believe the mayor has engaged in criminal activity of harboring illegal aliens and obstructing justice with her “warning.” She should be charged with those crimes.

ICE Arrests Over 150 Illegal Aliens in NorCal Despite Oakland Mayor’s Lawless Actions

Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf’s illegal and dangerous warning to illegal aliens of an impending ICE raid apparently didn’t get through to everyone she was attempting to “protect.”

On Tuesday Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) announced they’d arrested over 150 people in Northern California since Sunday for violating federal immigration law. Unfortunately Schaaf wasn’t one of them.

ICE Director Thomas Honan was not pleased with Schaaf’s “public safety” announcement, saying it was done at the expense of public safety – and at the expense of ICE officers, who were forced to apprehend their targets in a more dangerous situation.

“[Schaaf’s announcement] further increased that risk for my officers and alerted criminal aliens — making clear that this reckless decision was based on her political agenda with the very federal laws that ICE is sworn to uphold.”

“Thanks to the dedicated and professional work of ICE deportation officers, we were able to remove many public safety threats from the streets of the Bay Area during the past few days.”

“However, 864 criminal aliens and public safety threats remain at large in the community, and I have to believe that some of them were able to elude us thanks to the mayor’s irresponsible decision. Unlike the politicians who attempt to undermine ICE’s critical mission, our officers will continue to fulfill their sworn duty to protect public safety.”

One of the criminal illegal aliens ICE apprehended was Armando Nunez-Salgado, who seems to be a pillar of the community:


Salgado’s criminal career goes back 18 years, to when he was just 20 years old. He’s a documented gang member who has been sentenced to a total of 15 years in prison over that time span and has been removed by ICE four times. Of those criminal illegal aliens who remain at large, at least two of them have been removed by ICE eight times. Others listed in an NBC story have been removed by ICE multiple times.

Deportation is necessary, but without real border security (like a wall) they will shamelessly keep coming back.
