    New bill named after Oakland mayor who tipped illegal immigrants to ICE sweepTipping illegal immigrants off to a looming immigration sweep could net sanctuary city leaders jail time, under a new bill announced Monday by Rep. Steve King. The Iowa Republican dubbed the bill the Mayor Libby Schaaf Act, after the Oakland mayor who alerted California’s bay area to an impending sweep earlier this year, in a move that immigration officials said helped hundreds of people escape detection.

    Full Title: Illegal immigrants, who dodged California ICE raid after Dem mayor's tip-off, re-arrested for new crimes Three illegal immigrants, who avoided capture after Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf blew the whistle on a raid by federal immigration authorities last month, have since been re-arrested for new crimes including robbery and spousal abuse, ICE officials said. snip ICE officials eventually caught 232 illegal immigrants, many of them criminals, in the four-day sweep but said that hundreds more escaped because of Schaaf’s warning. But on Tuesday, officials said that at least three of those who were targeted in the raid, but were...

    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 Oakland’s legal right to be a sanctuary city and we have not broken any...

    FULL TITLE: Kamala Harris: ‘I Support’ Oakland Mayor Who Helped Criminal Illegal Aliens Evade Deportation ‘100 Percent’ Senator and potential 2020 Democratic presidential candidate Kamala Harris (D-CA) says she “100 percent” supports Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf’s (D) decision to help criminal illegal aliens evade deportation ahead of a raid by federal immigration officials. During a fundraiser for the YMCA’s “Y for Youth Luncheon,” Harris defended Schaaf, who made national headlines last month when she warned criminal illegal aliens of a coming raid in Oakland by the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency. Subsequently, Schaaf helped many criminal illegal aliens with...

    President Donald J. Trump used his weekly address to discuss the rampant problem of liberal public servants defying federal immigration law in hopes of protecting illegal aliens from deportation. In reality, these actions committed by mostly Democratic office holders endanger the community and American citizens. “Protecting the safety and well-being of American Citizens is my highest duty as President. Yet, lawless sanctuary jurisdictions are nullifying federal law, obstructing immigration enforcement, and releasing thousands of criminal aliens into U.S. communities to prey on innocent victims. Its absolutely terrible,” the president said. The 45th commander-in-chief then went on to highlight notable examples...

    RUSH: I was watching on CNN today. The Democrats have a genuine, radical, off-the-wall analyst/strategist named Cardona, Maria Cardona or something. She’s debating some guy on immigration and sanctuary cities, and she was really all over ICE. She says (summarized), “ICE, it’s like the Gestapo! I mean, they’re not… They’re not just focusing on the criminal illegals. They’re focusing on the people who are here without papers too!” I’m saying, “Well, what the hell are they if they’re not illegal?” As though we’re supposed to ignore that particular illegality, being here illegally and only go after those who have committed...

    California's three new "sanctuary" laws, challenged in court this week by the Trump administration, face different hurdles and have varying vulnerabilities, legal experts said Wednesday. Law professors who read the lawsuit filed by Atty. Gen. Jeff Sessions generally described it as a credible challenge that presents complex legal questions that might wind up before the U.S. Supreme Court. "The arguments made by the Justice Department are not at all lightweight arguments," said Pepperdine law school professor Douglas W. Kmiec. "They are quite substantial." The federal government has wide authority over matters of immigration, and Sessions has charged that California's new...

    A former employee of YouTube (a subsidiary of Alphabet, parent of Google) alleged in a recently filed lawsuit that YouTube is discriminating against white and Asian men. “YouTube last year stopped hiring white and Asian males for technical positions because they didn’t help the world’s largest video site achieve its goals for improving diversity,” the suit alleges. Liberal discrimination against white men is nothing new, but many people are caught by surprise to see such explicit discrimination against Asian males in the name of diversity from one of the most progressive companies in one of the most liberal zip codes....

    SACRAMENTO — Warning that California’s liberal politicians were endangering the state’s citizens and obstructing federal law, Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced on Wednesday that the Trump administration was suing the state over laws designed to make it more difficult for federal immigration agents to operate there. Speaking before a crowd of more than 200 California law enforcement officials in a Sacramento hotel ballroom on Wednesday morning, Mr. Sessions described the state’s so-called sanctuary laws as a radical maneuver that would threaten public safety and throw open the nation’s borders to even more illegal immigration. Immigration law “is in the books,...

Attorney General Jeff Sessions issued a stern warning to California the same day he announced a lawsuit filed by the Justice Department over the state's immigration policies. “I understand that we have a wide variety of political opinions out there on immigration. But the law is in the books and its purposes are clear and just,” Sessions said during a speech to the California Peace Officers’ Association in Sacramento on Wednesday. “There is no nullification. There is no secession. Federal law is the supreme law of the land. I would invite any doubters to go to Gettysburg,...

    Trump’s DOJ filed a lawsuit against California late Tuesday evening over their dangerous and unlawful sanctuary city policy being enforced by politicians such as Governor Jerry Brown. Speaking in Sacramento Wednesday, Attorney General Jeff Sessions blasted California lawmakers for protecting illegal aliens in their ‘sanctuary cities.’ House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) immediately fired back at the Trump administration’s move to finally put an end to the insanity of sanctuary cities. The Democrats don’t even try to hide it anymore. They openly fight for the invaders who are leeching, killing and raping American citizens. Pelosi tweeted: “The people of California...

    Responding to accusations from U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions that she enabled more than 800 undocumented immigrants to avoid arrest last week, Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf on Wednesday stood her ground, saying the government is targeting undocumented immigrants with no criminal records. “My response to the attorney general’s statements … How dare you vilify members of our community,” Schaaf said during a press conference following the attorney general’s remarks.

    Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf’s warning about federal immigration sweeps might look like a no-brainer on the local political front. After all, one poll of 500 Bay Area residents, by KPIX-5/Survey USA, found 48 percent approved of her heads up and just 34 percent turned thumbs down. However, the same poll found that 61 percent said police should help federal authorities in cases involving undocumented immigrants suspected of committing violent crimes. Immigration and Customs Enforcement says about half the 232 people picked up in its sweeps last week had criminal records, though the agency didn’t say how many of those were...

    Whether you're a conservative in Hollywood or in state, local, or federal government or somewhere in the academic world, you know full well what can happen to your career if you carelessly let slip your political preference. It can, and often does, result in significant, negative ramifications to your career. Any American who's spent any time residing in the State of California knows illegal aliens disregard our laws, have no problem tapping into our social services with fraudulent documents, have little desire to assimilate, and in a lot of cases, insist we embrace them and the system they decided to...

    Yesterday John talked about the ICE response to Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf tipping off the illegal aliens in her community to an impending immigration enforcement sweep. A request has been made to have the Department of Justice look into this act of lawbreaking and determine if some form of charges would be appropriate. The Deputy Director of ICE has since gone on to suggest some specifics. ICE Deputy Director Thomas D. Homan, however, had a different idea of what she was trying to do, saying on Tuesday that he believed some of the 864 “criminal aliens” that still remained at...

    A U.S.-based Saudi professor and former U.N. fellow says he agrees with Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad that the Holocaust is a "myth" and says America eventually will collapse like the Soviet Union. Abdullah Mohammad Sindi, who has taught at four American schools, told Iran's Mehr News Agency Dec. 26, "I agree wholeheartedly with President Ahmadinejad." "There was no such a thing as the 'Holocaust,'" Sindi said, according to the Middle East Media Research Institute. "The so-called 'Holocaust' is nothing but Jewish-Zionist propaganda. There is no proof whatsoever that any living Jew was ever gassed or burned in Nazi Germany or...

    During her annual State of the City address on Thursday, Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf called on her constituents to open their doors and residences to the city’s homeless, as union workers picketed against her for her administration’s handling of the city’s rampant housing problem. “Give up that Airbnb. Fix up that back unit,” Schaff said, encouraging property owners to lease apartments at more affordable rates to recently homeless individuals, according to the San Francisco Chronicle. “In Oakland, we don’t step over the homeless we step toward them,” Schaaf said. The city’s uptick in vagrants is tied to a general gentrification...

    Oakland mayor Libby Schaaf is a frequent critic of Donald Trump. She warned the city of a possible raid by ICE on Jan. 25. On Tuesday night, just after completing a roundup of more than 150 suspected undocumented immigrants, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement said it could have arrested more but for the actions of one person: Mayor Libby Schaaf of Oakland, Calif. Schaaf learned of the Northern California ICE enforcement operation before it kicked off on Sunday and, in a controversial move, warned the immigrant community ahead of time. On Saturday, saying she felt it was her moral and...

    The real question is whether she's going to be held accountable. Federal officials said Tuesday they arrested more than 150 undocumented immigrants in a Northern California sweep aimed at countering local sanctuary laws, while suggesting Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf’s decision to alert the public to the secret operation may have allowed some targets to elude capture. “Sanctuary jurisdictions like San Francisco and Oakland shield dangerous criminal aliens from federal law enforcement at the expense of public safety,” said Thomas Homan, the acting director of ICE. “Because these jurisdictions prevent ICE from arresting criminal aliens in the secure confines of a...
