Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf is facing some national backlash after warning the illegal aliens in her community that immigration enforcement officials were going to be conducting operations in the San Francisco Bay Area.
After learning about the upcoming operation, she dispersed a memo that gave warning to the illegal aliens within her community:
“Earlier today, I learned from multiple credible sources that the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) is preparing to conduct an operation in the Bay Area, including Oakland, starting as soon as within the next 24 hours.”
ICE Director Tom Homan went on Fox and Friends and equated this warning to a look-out who alerts criminals in their neighborhood when a police presence is observed.
“As Mayor of Oakland, I am sharing this information publicly not to panic our residents but to protect them.”
Schaaf claimed that she was trying to protect the community’s “most vulnerable,” which is seems to be the new label for those who are actively breaking American laws. The Left used to call illegal aliens “undocumented American workers.” Perhaps they are now making the next transition by referring to illegal aliens as “the most vulnerable.”
Schaaf went on to reaffirm that illegal aliens had rights, and to point out exactly what restrictions are placed on ICE.
“In Oakland, OUSD public schools have strict protocols in place to protect our students and families. Oakland police officers are prohibited from participating in ICE activities.
Additionally, California state law prohibits business owners from assisting ICE agents in immigration enforcement and bars federal agents from accessing employee-only ares…”
A spokesman for ICE talked to Fox News, and revealed examples of the specific illegal aliens that evaded capture after the Democratic mayor’s warning for illegals.
Among those were illegal aliens who were convicted of statutory rape, assault charges, robbery charges, as well as illegals who had been previously deported. These would be the “most vulnerable” that Mayor Schaaf seemed to be trying to protect.
Say what you will about Donald Trump and the Republican Party, but at least they are not earning the pro-criminal activity reputation that the Democratic Party is wearing as a mantel of pride.
The Democrats have made it clear that they are willing to pick and choose what laws they will follow, will openly support criminal behavior, and will shield criminals from law enforcement agents.
Yet there are some who are in the pro-illegal immigration crowd who support the mayor’s actions. They are sympathetic to the “plight” of illegal aliens. However, consider the scenario with illegal immigration taken out of the equation.
Let’s say that the DEA was planning to conduct a raid in Oakland, California. Let’s say that they were looking to break up a suspected narcotics ring.
For those on the mayor’s side, would she still be in the right if she took to Twitter with a message warning that the DEA was about to conduct a series of raids in the area, beginning as soon as within the next 24 hours?
The answer is obviously “no.” But for some reason, whenever the discussion is over illegal immigration, the Left seems to lose all sense of right and wrong any and all actions that protect illegal aliens are considered justified.
Share this if you think the Democratic Party should officially be considered the largest organized crime organization in America.
