ICE Arrests Over 150 in Bay Area

ICE Arrests Over 150 in Bay Area

Homan and other top administration officials have been highly critical of the law and suggested ICE would carry out more operations in California to compensate for the state's lack of cooperation on immigration enforcement.

ICE chief Thomas D. Homan compared her to a gang lookout snitching on police. Since that course of action would create many more problems than it would solve, we expressed our opinion that it is hard to imagine Trump actually taking that extreme action.

Schaaf has said her warning was her "duty and moral obligation", and stands by her decision, even though she has since received death threats for doing so. "And that's now under review by the Department of Justice, and I don't have anything else to add".

Immigrations and Customs Enforcement (ICE) arrested more than 150 illegals in the San Francisco Bay Area this week - no thanks to the Democrat mayor of Oakland, who tried to warn the constituents of her sanctuary city of impending ICE raids.

More than 100 of the people arrested had criminal records, including convictions for child sex crimes, weapons charges and assault, ICE said.

This week's raids followed the arrest of 200 undocumented immigrants in a similar operation in January. However, said Homan, "There's 800 that we are unable to locate because of that warning, so that community is a lot less safe than it would have been".

Ivanka's $360 Million Vancouver Deal Is Reportedly Being Investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation
The C$360 million (RM1.1 billion) property belongs to the family-owned TA Global Bhd, a company listed on Bursa Malaysia. In the case of Vancouver, it's not clear why investigators are examining this particular deal.

Laurie Levenson, a Loyola Law School professor and former federal prosecutor, said she believed Schaaf's goal in making the warning was not to help people evade the law, but to give them the opportunity to make preparations for their families or get appropriate legal advice.

"This raid was intended exclusively to terrorize innocent immigrant families and instill fear in the hearts of our communities", Pelosi said, "not to keep Americans safe".

Schaaf defended her decision in a statement made the same day as Homan's: "My statement on Saturday was meant to give all residents time to learn their rights and know their legal options".

"I continue to feel confident that what I did was the right thing and was legal", Schaaf told reporters. She added that Oakland, as a sanctuary city, had not broken any laws. "Rather than focus on people who are unsafe criminals, we hear ICE may be terrorizing communities, including family members who are citizens".

The Trump administration has cracked down on so-called sanctuary policies, insisting that local law enforcement inform federal agents when they are about to release immigrants discovered to be living in the country illegally.

In fiscal year 2017, ICE arrested 20,201 people across the state, Schwab said.
