DoJ: California Mayor's Alleged Immigration Alert Prompts Investigation

02 March 2018

Following the raid, ICE Deputy Director Thomas Homan publicly blasted Schaaf, stating, "The Oakland mayor's decision to publicize her suspicions about ICE operations further increased the 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".

"I was sharing information in a way that is legal. not obstructing justice. opportunity to make sure people are aware of their rights", said Libby Schaf, Oakland Mayor.

The agency said about half of the people arrested during the Northern California sweep have criminal convictions in addition to immigration violations, including convictions for assault, weapons offenses and driving under the influence.

"The results of this operation are a clear indication of ICE's commitment regarding the role we play in keeping our communities safe by locating, arresting and ultimately removing at-large criminal aliens who pose a threat to public safety, and other immigration fugitives", Daniel Bible, field office director for ERO in San Antonio, said.

US Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials asked Boston police to hold 68 immigrants for possible deportation past year, but the city department "did not directly transfer any of the suspects to ICE custody", the city's police commissioner said in a recent memo. The targeting of cities and states that refuse to use their limited resources to fuel the Trump administration's deportation machine is cruel and inhumane.

Neymar is second in the league scoring charts behind teammate Edinson Cavani, with 19 goals in 20 games. Four years ago, Neymar missed the semifinal against Germany with injury and Brazil were thrashed 7-1.

"Being a law enforcement officer is already unsafe enough, but to give the criminals a heads-up that we're coming in the next 24 hours increases that risk", Mr. Homan said on Fox News. ICE arrested more than 200 people earlier this month in the Los Angeles area. Officers were able to effectively arrest 150 immigrants who remained undocumented according to CBS San Francisco.

The document in question, obtained through a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request, outlines why ICE served a deportation notice to Bellingham resident Maru Mora Villalpando in December.

"The department of justice is reviewing the incident and we'll see what they come back with", Homan told Fox News when asked whether Schaaf could be charged with obstruction of justice.

ICE has sent repeated hard-line messages since President Donald Trump took office previous year, declaring that undocumented immigrants should "look over [their] shoulder" and that politicians in sanctuary states should be prosecuted.

Schaaf defended her actions in an interview with The Washington Post, saying that she is committed to resisting the Trump administration's immigration policies, even if it means jail time.

Japan: police finds missing woman's detached head
The mother of the woman contacted police on February 17 after her daughter's company said that she failed to arrive at work. The man, who lives in NY , had arrived as a tourist in Osaka in January, the Asahi Shimbun daily reported.

Asked about Homan likening her to a gang lookout, she said the 'Trump administration is trying to distract the American people, convince them that these immigrants are unsafe people.

"There's over 800 significant public-safety threat criminals".

Homan's proclamation conflicts with Mr. Trump's recent suggestion that he would remove ICE agents from the state, as part of an effort to pressure sanctuary cities to cooperate with federal immigration authorities.

Sanctuary policies differ from city to city but generally have provisions for cooperation with federal law enforcement in cases involving serious crimes. Speaking in her office, the mayor said she stood by her decision to reveal an operation she learned about from confidential "credible sources". USA intelligence officials said Russian agents penetrated voting systems in California and six other states in the 2016 election, NBC reports.

Evans provided the information to City Clerk Maureen Feeney in a memo dated February 12 to comply with the Trust Act, a city ordinance passed in 2014 that limits city police cooperation with ICE.
