Libby Schaaf, the mayor of Oakland, California, has made a public vow to face jail time before she allows Trump’s administration to deport criminal illegal aliens.
Guess we know who her voter constituents are…
Trump, during his campaign for president, has promised to punish these “sanctuary cities” and remove their federal funding for protecting people that are endangering Americans. Allegedly, ICE officials are planning a full raid of California after they enacted a “sanctuary state” bill, which took effect January 1, 2018.
Schaaf has pretty much given an “over her dead body” statement that she will let the Trump administration do this in Oakland.
Speaking to San Francisco’s CBS affiliate station, Schaaf called Trump a “bully in chief.”
“It is no surprise that the bully in chief is continuing to try to intimidate our most vulnerable residents,” Schaaf said. “We’re very clear that our values are to protect all of our residents regardless of where we come from. We want to protect families, not tear them apart.”
“We are exercising our legal right to be a Sanctuary City and to protect our residents,” the mayor continued. “The fact that the federal government is suggesting that it is actively retaliating against jurisdictions that are exercising their right to have sanctuary policies — that is what is illegal.”
Via Breitbart: Schaaf said she is willing to go to jail to protect illegal aliens.
The Oakland City Council firmly backed the mayor, too.
Firstly, Oakland has set aside one million in tax dollars to help defend illegals who are gathered up by immigration officials. Secondly, the council voted unanimously to discontinue cooperation with ICE officials.
