California mayor issues warning of ICE sweep


SFGateThe relationship between U.S. immigration officials and California’s liberal leaders soured long ago, but Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf’s decision to warn potential targets of federal arrest that an immigration sweep could be imminent was an extraordinary escalation.

Schaaf said she issued the alert Saturday night after receiving confidential tips from “credible sources” who revealed that U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, known as ICE, was planning arrests across the Bay Area as soon as Sunday.

Obstruction of justice is still a crime, isn't it? Passively not cooperating is one thing, but actively warning criminals is another.

UPDATE: The warning helped 850 illegals evade deportation.
