In the US there are a little over 200 sanctuary cities. Those are cities that provide safe havens for immigrants who were trying to escape the violence of South America. In the name of keeping immigrant families together they exist.

The mayor of Oakland Libby Schaaf, tipped off her constituents that a federal raid was coming. ICE agents were never the less able to arrest more detain 150 people for deportation. Of that group they say half of them have criminal backgrounds which is difficult to believe.

She didn’t know when and she didn’t know where but she knew the raid was coming. She said on 25 January, "It is Oakland's legal right to be a sanctuary city and we have not broken any laws." Again on Saturday she sent a release, "I am sharing this information publicly not to panic our residents but to protect them," said her news release. Mayor Schaaf, continued, "My priority is for the well-being and safety of all residents, particularly our most vulnerable."

In a predictable move the federal agents are declaring more than 800 illegals escaped their grasp thanks to the mayors generous warning. ICE deputy director Thomas Homan aimed at Mayor Schaaf as the blame for their dismal results. She said that she does not regret sharing the information, adding, "We believe our community is safer when families stay together."

Dumb Donald complained about the sanctuary cities and threatened to withdraw immigration enforcement agencies form the state. He referred to the immigrants as “horrible criminals.”

The noble mayor said that she does not regret warning her citizenry.
