White House comments on Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf's ICE warning

Homan said in the press release that protocol from sanctuary cities such as San Francisco and Oakland prevents ICE officials from detaining immigrants who are now imprisoned.

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.

ICE officials said 115 arrestees had prior felony convictions for serious or violent offenses, such as child sex crimes, weapons charges, and assault or had past convictions for significant or multiple misdemeanors. "Rather than focus on people who are unsafe criminals, we hear ICE may be terrorizing communities, including family members who are citizens".

"As she stated it, it was her goal to make her community safe", Levenson said. Those who have outstanding orders of deportation, or who returned to the United States illegally after being deported, are subject to immediate removal from the country.

"What she did is no better than a gang lookout yelling "police" when a police cruiser comes in the neighborhood, except she did it to a whole community", Thomas Homan, the Immigration and Customs Enforcement acting chief, told "Fox and Friends". As a result, ICE officers make more arrests in the community instead, which poses "increased risks for law enforcement and the public", according to the press release.

Among those at large are Oakland residents with multiple prior removals, said James Schwab, a spokesman for ICE in San Francisco, a field office that spans 49 counties from Bakersfield to the OR border. "The governor is simply wrong when he claims otherwise".

Did Zaza Pachulia Flop for the win?
Thunder forward Paul George agreed Pachulia's move appeared intentional. "He's on the end of hurting a lot of guys", George added. Initial replays appeared to prove that Zaza may have done it on objective because of the slow nature of his fall.

ICE officials confirm they arrested 9 people on Wednesday, February 28. ICE did not provide a county by county breakdown of the arrests.

The four-day operation in Northern California was the second in the state since a sweeping sanctuary law took effect at the beginning of the year. 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.

ICE, however, has criticized her actions. We chalked it up to just something a very frustrated president said while blowing off steam.

Oakland mayor Libby Schaaf looks on during an assembly at Edna Brewer Middle School about the U.S. Constitution on January 19 in Oakland, California.

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

In a statement announcing the final tallies, ICE said it was forced to go into the communities after California's sanctuary policies cut off nearly all cooperation and denied access to prisons and jails, leaving criminal migrants free.
