ICE blames Calif. sanctuary law for illegals' arrests


"And that's now under review by the Department of Justice, and I don't have anything else to add", press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said in her afternoon briefing at the White House. It's unclear exactly what that review entails.

"I think it's outrageous that a mayor would circumvent federal authorities and certainly put them in danger by making a move such as that", White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders told reporters.

Mayor Libby Schaaf tweeted on Saturday that an immigration operation was imminent in the San Francisco area, including Oakland, possibly within 24 hours.

Of those arrested, 180 were either convicted criminals who had failed to leave the country after ordered to do so or returned after being deported, ICE officials said in a news release.

A spokesperson for Schaaf told the Los Angeles Times the mayor's office isn't aware of a review and refused to comment any further.

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement said officers made 232 arrests from Sunday to Wednesday arrests and renewed threats of a bigger street presence in California, where state law sharply limits cooperation with immigration authorities at local jails.

Oakland, like many California cities, has declared itself a sanctuary for those here illegally, and officials there have vowed to fight President Trump's immigration crackdown.




During the operation, ICE's enforcement and removal operations arrested 232 individuals for violating USA immigration laws. Recent legislation has negatively impacted ICE operations in California by almost eliminating all cooperation and communication with our law enforcement partners in the state by prohibiting local law enforcement from contracting with the federal government to house detainees.

"I have to believe that some of them were able to elude us thanks to the mayor's irresponsible decision", Homan said. Community organizer, Jesus Ruiz, said the rumors paralyze the community.

Schaaf said in a statement on Tuesday that she had warned of the raid "to give all residents time to learn their rights and know their legal options".

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

"I do not regret sharing this information", Schaaf added.

On 'Fox & Friends, ' acting ICE director says the Oakland, California mayor is intentionally putting law enforcement officers at risk by warning illegal immigrants. "She gave them warning, and there were 800 that we were unable to locate because of that warning, so that community is a lot less safe than it would have been". ICE did not provide a county by county breakdown of the arrests.
