Skip to comments.Oakland mayor consulted with illegal-immigration activists before tipping off ICE raid

Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf, who sparked national outrage when she undermined a federal immigration raid last month, worked with illegal-immigration activists before she warned the public about the raid-- a move that ICE said led to hundreds of illegals evading detention.
Schaaf took to Twitter to warn the public about the raid, and has stood by her decision despite a number of hardened criminals being caught -- and ICE officials warning that potentially hundreds of other criminals escaped as a consequence of the tipoff.
"It is Oaklands legal right to be a sanctuary city and we have not broken any laws," Schaaf said in a statement last month. "We believe our community is safer when families stay together."
Her move sparked anger not just from ICE officials, but also the Trump administration. The Justice Department is currently conducting a review of Schaaf's actions.
What happened in Oakland was a disgrace to our nation, President Donald Trump said in California on Tuesday.
KPIX5 reports that Schaaf was in touch with Centro Legal de la Raza just hours before the announcement, giving her information on what employers should do in the case of an ICE raid.
That group, which did not respond to a request for comment from Fox News, is a nonprofit with a focus on providing legal services to those in the country illegally. It also appears to act as an advocacy group for illegal immigrants -- printing an ICE Activity Hotline on its website.

When does she get indicted?
If we had an attorney general she would be in prison.
It now goes from being just a crime to conspiracy.
[So the traitor Mayor Libby Schaaf will work with Centro Legal de la Raza]
SEDITION. Lock her up. What is taking so long?
Actively conspiring with foreign criminal elements to obstruct the law of her country.
Any elected official in the United States that sides with illegal aliens over the citizens and the rule of law should be removed from office and arrested.
Jeff Sessions! Ooooga-Boooga!
Enough with the “reviews” and the “closer looks”. Arrest the criminal mayor for obstruction!
“The Justice Department is currently conducting a review of Schaaf’s actions.”
Any of us non-elected-democrat schmucks would already be sitting in jail without bail, if we had done this.
Support Free Republic, Folks!
I am fully unsure as to Sessions deliberations, etc., BUT, his lame arse should have already placed this mayor under custody and in jail!
When Little Jeffie wakes up from his nap - after Trump is out of office.
We need to be better than a banana republic, otherwise why not move somewhere that’s cheaper if there’s no rule of law here.
Indict her for treason. Apply the appropriate punishment - death by hanging.
This and more .... it comes and it hates America and Americans
I smell a “strongly worded letter” coming out of this.
Intent cannot be denied. This makes it conclusive.
