Libby Schaaf, the Oakland mayor who alerted illegal aliens in her area of a coming ICE raid, has decided to “call out” both Attorney General Jeff Sessions as well as President Donald Trump, by saying that they are “racist” for their alleged comparison of criminals and “immigrants”.
On her warning, Sessions stated:
“How dare you. How dare you needlessly endanger the lives of law enforcement just to promote your radical open borders agenda.”
Schaaf delivered a statement at a press conference in resonse to AG Sessions: (via CBS San Francisco):
My response to the Attorney General’s statements this morning is as follows:
How dare you vilify members of our community by trying to frighten the American public into thinking that all undocumented immigrants are dangerous criminals — hard-working, law-abiding Oakland’s like Eusebio and Maria Sanchez, whom you ripped away from their American-born children and the cancer patients at our public hospital who relied on Maria’s nursing skills every day?
How dare you distract the American people from a failed immigration system that tears apart families and forces the workers that out economy depends on to harvest our crops, delver our services, and build our cities to live in fear and work under oppressed conditions?
How dare you distort the reality about declining violent crime in a diverse sanctuary city like Oakland, California, to advance your racist agenda?
I am confident that the courts will resolve the dispute between the administration and the great State of California. I am ready to get back to work doing my job as the mayor of Oakland — addressing homelessness, building affordable housing, fixing the streets, creating safe neighborhoods, and ensuring that the children of my community, no matter where they came from, or how they got here, have every opportune for success.
Oakland’s agenda is a thriving community. Trump’s agenda is bigotry and vindictiveness.
Sessions is also investigating Schaaf and her actions, wherein 800~ illegal aliens (keyword illegal) managed to escape the ICE raid.
