Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf claimed on Monday evening that Rep. Steve King’s (R-IA) bill to punish public officials who warn illegal immigrants about potential Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) raids with potential jail time is illegal, Breitbart reports.
“It is not possible that legislation like that could be legal, Sanctuary-city policies are legal policies. They’ve been well-researched. They are within the confines of what local and state jurisdictions are allowed to do. That is part of the beauty of American democracy—a balance between local, state, and federal power.” ~ Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf
Rep. Steve King (R-IA) has introduced legislation named after Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf — who infamously helped criminal illegal aliens evade deportation — that would imprison sanctuary city politicians.
President @realdonaldtrump how many rabid, violent MS-13 animals do mayors like @LibbySchaaf allow to prey on our citizens when they obstruct ICE raids? Too many! I’ve just introduced a bill to stop them and protect law abiding Americans. https://t.co/DlocIwZhmq

King Introduces “Mayor Libby Schaaf Act” Criminalizing Sanctuary City Obstruction of Federal
“Sanctuary politicians are placing the lives of citizens and law enforcement officers in jeopardy by giving illegal aliens warnings about impending ICE actions in local jurisdictions, This is obstruction of justice, and Americans do not have to put up with it. I want lawless, Sanctuary City politicians to hear this message clearly: if you obstruct ICE, you are going to end up in the cooler”
Schaaf told Burnett on Erin Burnett Outfront that she will not “let anyone intimidate” her and “will not apologize” for Oakland’s “proud” sanctuary status.
“And I can tell you that I know a lot more about what makes my community safe than a Congress member from Iowa,”
RWT NEWS Reported, President Donald Trump suggested on Wednesday that Attorney General Jeff Sessions consider prosecuting Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf for “obstruction of justice” because she warned illegal immigrants in February about potential Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) raids.
“I mean, you talk about obstruction of justice, I would recommend that you look into obstruction of justice for the mayor of Oakland, California, Jeff. She informed them, and they all fled — or most of them fled — and that whole operation, that took a long time to put together. To me, that’s obstruction of justice. And perhaps the Department of Justice can look into that, with respect to the mayor. Because it’s a big deal out there, and a lot of people are very angry about what happened. There was a lot of hard work and a lot of danger involved. And that was a terrible thing.” ~ President Trump
