Exclusive: Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf, Who Tipped Off Illegal Aliens to ICE Sweep, Faces Lawsuit
Ed. This dizzy woman said she's "willing to go to jail to defend criminal illegal aliens." Nice to know she has such deep regard and concern for her AMERICAN constituents.

The Immigration Reform Law Institute (IRLI) will file a
lawsuit Monday seeking to force Oakland, California, to produce documents
related to its mayor Libby Schaaf’s decision to tip off illegal aliens to a
major enforcement action in February, IRLI Executive Director Dale Wilcox
revealed for the first time on Sirius XM’s Breitbart News Sunday.
We’re “tired of these
state and local jurisdictions who are thumbing their nose at our duly enacted
immigration laws,” Wilcox told Breitbart News Deputy Political Editor Amanda
In February, a San
Francisco Bay-wide operation by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE)
aimed at criminal illegal aliens netted
232 apprehensions, including 115 with serious criminal records. But, according
to ICE Director Thomas Homan, more than 800 others escaped
after Libby Schaaf broke
the secrecy of the action, explicitly in order to protect illegals from discovery.
In a Fox and
Friends interview in the aftermath of the operation, an outraged Homan
accused Schaaf of acting like “a gang lookout yelling ‘police.’” Attorney
General Jeff Sessions was even more emphatic. “How dare you?” he asked
during his announcement of his department’s lawsuits to strike down
California’s so-called “sanctuary” policies. “How dare you needlessly endanger
the lives of our law enforcement officers to promote a radical open borders
Schaaf defended her
actions, claiming they did not endanger law enforcement and only told “people
what the law is, what their rights are, what their resources are.”
IRLI requested copies
of emails and other internal communications between Schaff and her top-level
staff related to Schaaf’s public tip-off under the California Public Records
Act (CPRA), but according to IRLI’s complaint, the assigned deadline passed
without any documents being produced. IRLI is now suing to force Oakland to
hand over the documents.
“I think [the
documents are] going to expose [Schaaf and her staff] radical open-borders
philosophy and how … [Schaaf] has been scheming with the chief of police,”
Wilcox told House about what IRLI hopes their lawsuit will uncover. “She has
mentioned in news reports about conversations she’s had with her chief of
police over tipping off illegal aliens. She’s been quite brazen. She’s actually
she’s willing to go to jail to defend criminal illegal aliens.”
Schaaf’s tip-off provoked
a strong reaction but rocketed her into the forefront of politics in
California, where she is running for re-election. The gambit attracted the
endorsement of rising Resistance star Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA), for example.
So she's "willing to go to jail?" Good! Let's send her.
This IRLI suit
against Schaaf is taking place amid a backdrop of contempt for federal
immigration laws across the Golden State, most clearly exhibited by the three
sanctuary state laws the Justice Department is seeking to invalidate. Most
galling of these for immigration hawks like Wilcox is AB 450, which prohibits private
employers from cooperating with federal immigration enforcement. “This is the
State of California telling employers – private employers, we’re not talking
about public agencies – … ‘you’re not allowed to cooperate with ICE either,'”
Wilcox told House.
In turn, Schaaf and
California’s resistance to federal immigration laws fits into the larger,
nationwide effort by liberal jurisdictions to protect illegal aliens at the
expense or in disregard of American citizens and legal residents. Wilcox cited
a recent study by IRLI’s sister group the Federation for American Immigration
Reform (FAIR) that showed over half of Americans now live
in some kind of sanctuary jurisdiction.
[Donald] Trump has taken office, it’s been like dominoes with these
open-borders agitators. … The sanctuary policies have just multiplied,” Wilcox
explained. “Of course we know what the politicians – what’s behind their push
for open borders. It’s a desire for more votes eventually. If [illegal aliens]
get to stay, if they get citizenship, then they’re going to vote. And we see,
sadly, that one party has adopted a position on this issue and they’re counting
on those votes in the future.”
