Bay Area ICE spokesman resigns, refused to deliver 'misleading facts,' report says

Activists In Chicago Rally In Support Of Undocumented Immigrants

"I asked them to change the information", he told The Chronicle, referring to the 864 people to whom the statement alluded.

"I've never been in this situation in 16 nearly 17 years in government where someone asked me to deflect when we absolutely knew something was awry - when the data was not correct" he said. "Then I took some time and I quit".

A US immigration official in Northern California has resigned, accusing the Trump administration of making misleading statements on a recent operation to arrest undocumented immigrants in the area. They pointed to her public warning of a pending raid, which she issued on February 24, just as the operation was about to begin. Before 1996, immigration deportation was only allowed for people accused of committing offenses that could lead to five years or more in jail.

"It's the job of a public affairs officer to offer transparency for the agency you work for", he told the Chronicle.

Mr. Schwab told CNN that he thought Ms. Schaaf's actions were "misguided", but that blaming her "for 800 risky people out there is just false".

The most recent raid in the Bay area resulted in ICE arresting four people who had been previously arrested for aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, five people convicted of carrying concealed weapons, four people who were arrested for cruelty toward a child, two who were arrested for cruelty toward their wives, six people convicted of domestic violence, one person who had been convicted of drug trafficking, and one person who was convicted for lewd and lascivious acts with a minor, Homan said. "To say that 100 percent are risky criminals on the street, or that those people weren't picked up because of the misguided actions of the mayor, is just wrong", Schwab said.

Last week, President Donald Trump doubled down on Homan's earlier criticism that Schaaf's warning of imminent ICE activity tipped off criminals.

Matt Damon And Ben Affleck commit to inclusion riders after Oscars appeal
The move follows Frances McDormand's call at the Oscars for actors to demand more inclusivity in front of and behind the camera. Ben Affleck and Matt Damon are pledging to do their part to boost diversity in the entertainment industry.

ICE said 232 people were arrested in the sweep, but claimed the number could have been higher.

Schwab said he pushed back on that characterization - but said ICE instructed him to "deflect" questions from the press. "Those are 800 wanted criminals that are now at large, 800 wanted criminals that ICE will now have to pursue by other means, with more difficulty, in unsafe situations, all because of one irresponsible action", Sessions said during his visit last week to California. "I think she could have had other options".

And just last week, in Sacramento, Sessions said, "Those are 800 wanted criminals that are now at large in that community - 800 wanted criminals that ICE will now have to pursue with more difficulty in more unsafe situations, all because of one mayor's irresponsible action". There also said that ICE does not conduct arbitrary sweeps of neighborhoods, but only targets homes and employers of illegal immigrants they have been tracking for months. "I've never been in a situation when I've been asked to ignore the facts because it was more convenient".

After the raid, Homan accused Schaaf of creating a risky situation for ICE agents. "Unlike the politicians who attempt to undermine ICE's critical mission, our officers will continue to fulfill their sworn duty to protect public safety".

Acting ICE Director Thomas Homan on the challenges to the agency from local officials in sanctuary cities such as San Francisco.

"Those are 800 wanted aliens that are now at large in that community -most are wanted criminals that ICE will now have to pursue with more difficulty in more risky situations, all because of one mayor's irresponsible action".
