    Can the feds really throw Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf behind bars for her ICE warning?

    Oakland mayor faces backlash after notifying residents of possible immigration enforcement

    On Saturday night, residents of Oakland received an urgent message from Mayor Libby Schaaf.

    Schaaf said she had heard from multiple sources that immigration agents would be conducting enforcement operations "starting as soon as within the next 24 hours" and urged those here illegally to take precautions.

    The message stunned many. On Monday, some of that surprise turned to confusion and anger as large-scale immigration sweeps did not materialize.

    Immigration head blames Oakland mayor for 800 missed arrests

    A federal official said Wednesday that about 800 "criminals" avoided immigration arrests because Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf alerted the public to the surprise operation, an extraordinarily high number of missed targets.

    Thomas Homan, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement's acting director, told Fox News that the mayor's warning on Twitter was "beyond the pale" and compared her to a gang lookout who tells people when a police car is arriving. Homan said the Justice Department is looking into whether Schaaf obstructed justice.

    It's stunning really. We have an elected mayor of a large city openly working against her own countries laws.

    She probably had no issue when Obama telegraphed our actions. Learned from the best

    Wow, someone standing up the ICE Jackboots? That's terrible!

    Yeah,a bout that.

    Sexual assaults in immigration detention centers rarely get investigated, advocacy group charges

    While walking to meet her lawyer, R. Santos was told she would be sexually assaulted "one-on-one" by the immigration officer escorting her at the York County Jail in Pennsylvania.

    But when she filed a sexual harassment complaint against the officer shortly after his threat, the prison put her in solitary confinement, "as retaliation" she says, for eleven days — an ordeal that still haunts her.

    "He reminded me that I was under his control and, at that moment, I was, because no one could hear or see us and he could have done anything to me," said Santos, asking her first name be withheld for fear of more retaliation. "And what did I get for reporting him? I got put in the hole."

    Santos, along with 26 similar alleged victims, are now lodging a federal civil rights complaint to the Department of Homeland Security’s Office for Civil Rights and Civil Liberties for the unbridled sexual abuse/harassment they endured in immigration detention centers across the country.

    Your link really has nothing to do with the mayor breaking the law, but wow, from your article-

    The complaint, filed on Tuesday by the California-based non-profit Community Initiatives for Visiting Immigrants in Confinement (CIVIC), says that the DHS Office of the Inspector General (OIG) received over 33,000 complaints of sexual and physical abuse by its agencies from 2010 until 2016 — but investigated less than one percent of them.
