Democrat Mayor obstructs justice while empowering criminal invaders
Oakland California has the unenviable distinction of having one of the highest crime rates in the nation in 2017. There is no question Oakland is the most dangerous city in California. There were 1,426 violent crimes — murder, rape, robbery, and aggravated assault — reported per 100,000 residents in Oakland.
With those dismal stats as a template, how do the actions of the mayor provide protection for the citizens of the city?
On Thursday, the White House announced the Department of Justice was reviewing the actions of Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf, who last weekend alerted residents in advance of an Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) sweep. Who would have guessed Mayor Schaaf is a Democrat? She took to twitter to defend her indefensible actions — using the routine fallacious platitude about “keeping families together.” Illegals are free to take their children with them when they return to their familial homeland.
Schaaf warned city residents to imminent Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) raids garnering criticism from federal authorities. Lawyer Schaaf, who’s running for reelection, responded, “I was sharing information in a way that was legal and was not obstructing justice, and it was an opportunity to ensure that people were aware of their rights“.
232 people were taken into custody, while about 800 evaded arrest thanks to the mayor’s warning. The people she’s referring to are illegal aliens, who invaded our nation and should have limited rights, certainly none that ensure their continued ability to live in the United States.
California is a sanctuary state and Oakland, which is not immune from federal law, is one of many sanctuary cites within the state.
