ICE blames Calif. sanctuary law for illegals' arrests

ICE Director Condemns Oakland Mayor's “Reckless” Warning About Impending Raids

Earlier Thursday, White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders said the U.S. Justice Department was reviewing Schaaf's warning about the Bay Area ICE raids.

ICE deportation officers and special agents arrested 212 individuals for violating federal immigration laws and served 122 notices of inspection (NOIs) to businesses in the Los Angeles area of responsibility (AOR) during a five-day targeted operation.

"That is now under review by the Department of Justice". In an emailed statement, a spokesperson for the Justice Department said it "does not confirm or deny the existence or nonexistence of investigations".

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.

"Sanctuary jurisdictions like San Francisco and Oakland shield risky criminal aliens from federal law enforcement at the expense of public safety", Homan said.

"I do not regret sharing this information".

A four-day immigration enforcement operation across Northern California netted hundreds of illegal immigrants even after a prominent local official sent out a warning of the impending sweep, USA officials said Thursday.

After WrestleMania 34 though, Lesnar could leave the company in favor of doing legit competition again in UFC . However, Lesnar's backstage drama could turn fans against the champion and into Reign's corner.

The sweep became controversial after Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf put out a warning saying she had learned ICE was conduction an operation, and telling illegal immigrants to take necessary steps.

"These are people who are already here illegally and yet committed another crime, and have been convicted of a crime." he said.

On 'Fox & Friends, ' acting ICE director says the Oakland, California mayor is intentionally putting law enforcement officers at risk by warning illegal immigrants. However, ICE no longer exempts classes or categories of removable aliens from potential enforcement.

Hundreds of immigration activists and their allies turned out in downtown SF on February 28 to protest Immigration and Customs Enforcement, or ICE, operations in Northern California.

More than 100 of the people arrested had criminal records, including convictions for child sex crimes, weapons charges and assault, ICE said. She added that Oakland, as a sanctuary city, had not broken any laws.

Notwithstanding any other provision of Federal, State, or local law, a Federal, State, or local government entity or official may not prohibit, or in any way restrict, any government entity or official from sending to, or receiving from, the Immigration and Naturalization Service information regarding the citizenship or immigration status, lawful or unlawful, of any individual. "We believe our community is safer when families stay together".

At least two people in Fresno County were arrested by Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents this week in a massive operation that swept over Northern California.
