    I find this disgusting. Not only is Schaaf willfully interfering with law enforcement, she’s willing to place those officer’s life in danger.

    If ICE is being used for political purposes to attack cities that don’t want to waste their taxpayers money by assisting with immigration raids I don’t feel too bad about those officials messing with ICE’s plans.

    What ”if”?

    What “if” they were just doing their job?

    What “if” this advance warning had resulted in the injury or death of a law enforcement officer?

    What “if” then?

    I think it's refreshing. ICE nees to take a long walk off a short pier.

    How would it result in injury or death of an officer? The worst that would happen is they don’t find anyone to arrest. There’s not enough specific information there for someone who just wants to shoot an ICE officer to be more effective than just walking over to an ICE office and shooting up the place.

    Instead of ignoring my question by asking others, kindly answer mine first.

    The left doesn't care about those laws. Illegals can kill Americans, it's all good in their eyes because Americans kill Americans. That's their justification for ignoring them.

    You have a bunch of rhetorical questions, but to try to answer them, what if they were just doing their job? Well, the people in the city government were doing their job here by protecting the people living in their city. If you are referring to the ICE agents doing their jobs, this doesn’t effect that at all, they can still go in they are just more likely to come out empty handed.

    On your other question of what if an officer gets hurt there is no way that this would lead to an officer getting hurt, hence my question of how that would come about as a result of this.

    Was your original reply not a hypothetical?

    Being in this country illegally is a crime. It’s one thing to turn your head to that, but it’s quite a different matter to abet in it by tipping off criminals of imminent law enforcement activity.

    I respect your belief, but just can’t muster the energy to even continue discussing something as disingenuous as how tipping off criminals of impending law enforcement activity is harmless.

    Just another example of the left's total disregard for the law.

    Democrats love illegals and the poor. It makes up a large part of their voting base. Let the illegals pour in, keep the EBT cards fully charged and you get to keep your political position. Works like a charm.

    Illegals don’t vote, but yes the poor will support the party that helps them as opposed to the party that tells them to roll over and die. See I can make generalizations too.

    What part? The Chinese have been buying parts of Oakland in hoards over the last few years and tearing everything down.

    LOL, I wasn't ever going to go that far, but yea, you're right. Modern day slavery by Deomcrats in a sense.

    No matter your thoughts about ICE and immigration raids, at some point Oakland is going to need help from the FBI or ICE or Homeland. So it is pretty stupid to put illegals ahead of your citizens when you might just need help from the feds in the future.

    But by all means, lets do something that makes us feel good consequences be damned.

    I don't agree with that 100%, but even assuming that they don't, their kids born here can. So let in a mom and dad who have 4 kids, that is 4 dem voters. Since the dems seem to have written off rust belt workers, they need a new group, so why not pick one that is growing.

    Why do democrats love illegals so much? They can’t (supposedly) vote and there are plenty of LEGAL immigrants whom they can court. As a child of LEGAL immigrants I say deport, deport, deport!

    Yes their kids can. And if you are going to claim that illegals vote as well you better have some proof that is more credible than one of Trump’s tweets.

    People can have all the opinions about immigration laws they want, but the bottom line is none of us should be ok with some city mayor deciding which federal law she wants to follow and enforce.

    That's a serious precedent to set and be ok with....
