Oakland Mayor Who Saved 800 Illegals From ICE Raids Just Got Swift Justice From Trump
The president had previously insisted on a harsh penalty for Schaaf for her actions. His remarks were aimed directly at Attorney General Sessions, who was one of nearly two dozen opponents of illegal immigration gathered for a public meeting at the White House.
Trump said, “You talk about obstruction of justice. I would recommend that you look at obstruction of justice for the mayor of Oakland,” Trump said, nodding in Sessions’ direction. “To me, that’s obstruction of justice. Perhaps the Department of Justice can look into that.”
Schaaf has since been unapologetic and downright defiant about her decision to warn Bay Area illegal immigrants who have committed a felony about pending arrests by Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents back in February. The result, federal officials said at the time, was to reduce the number of arrests of those suspected of being in the country illegally and it put our agents in harm’s way by alerting these criminals of the plan.
