Oakland, California Mayor Libby Schaaf, Who Tipped Off Illegal Aliens to ICE Sweep, Faces Lawsuit

Breitbart: 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 House.

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 agenda?”

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.  more

  1. It takes an incredible amount of gall to enter another country and conduct yourself with brazen criminality. They do this because of assholes like this mayor who send the signals it will be tolerated. She needs to be prosecuted.

  2. One day, something terrible will happen.
    Something heinous.
    All a direct result of these policies.
    On that day I will join the mob.
    The mob that hauls these politicians out of their gated community houses and hangs them from the nearest light pole.
    The good will be hung along with the bad, but that is the nature of people who have had enough.
    It will be ugly, but a necessary thing.

  3. Well if she is “willing to goto jail” lets help her fulfill her dream and send all of her friends and helpers along with her. Something tells me she will be fighting not to.

  4. If we had an AG who had any cojones, he’d make sure that Federal law enforcement
    gave her the Schaaf.

    > Laws are for the little people to follow.

    Now, Davy, you know that’s “people.” Not people.

  6. Lawsuit? Why is she not sitting in a Federal cell, facing Federal charges?

    Arrest and charge just ONE of these treasonous small fry officials and the rest will run screaming for cover.

  7. Why the wait? She should have two options right now – the lock-up or out on bail, and facing federal criminal charges.

    As others have said, these dem pols have got to face the consequences of their terrible policies that put our lives in danger. The evil MS-13 gang is the result of their policies. Why do law-abiding citizens have to put up with that?
