Another Sanctuary Mayor Willing to Go to Jail over Immigration Law

Another Sanctuary Mayor Willing to Go to Jail over Immigration Law

The comments drew a storm of criticism from Trump administration officials including Attorney General Jeff Sessions and the acting ICE director, Thomas Honan.

However, sanctuary states and cities still do share information on criminals or suspects if they have been convicted of serious crimes. "Trump's agenda is bigotry and petty vindictiveness".

"Clearly they are picking a fight with California", Schaaf said. She also expressed confidence that any questions regarding the legality of sanctuary city and state policies will be settled by the courts.

"This matter has been settled".

He argued the federal government sued California to invalidate and immediately freeze what he called unjust laws.

During his lengthy speech, Sessions bemoaned the changing demographics of the nation, saying that the percentage of "non-native born" residents is rising, and will soon reach the highest point in history. "How dare you needlessly endanger the lives of law enforcement just to promote your radical open borders agenda", Sessions told the California Peace Officers Association in Sacramento.

"So, here's my message to Mayor Schaaf: How dare you".

"California has enacted a number of laws created to intentionally obstruct the work of our sworn immigration enforcement officers - to intentionally use every power it has to undermine duly-established immigration law in America", he added.

And he said sanctuary cities should be forced to give up federal grant money, and predicted his administration will prevail in the new lawsuit it filed this week against California over three new state laws that restrict cooperation with federal law enforcement. He singled out Schaaf for her warning earlier this month of an impending ICE operation in the Bay Area.

Sessions did not say whether he was pursuing criminal charges against Schaaf, but the mayor said that if the Justice Department does decide to press charges, Obama-appointed former U.S. Attorney Melinda Haag has offered to represent her pro bono, according to the SF Gate.

The mayor did not immediately respond to Trump's attack, but has repeatedly defended her actions in the past. You can be sure about this: "We have your back". He says the move made efforts much more risky for law enforcement. "They know they must have the trust of all members of the community for them to do their jobs safely and effectively".

"How dare you distract the American people from a failed immigration system that tears apart decent families and forces the workers that our economy depends on to harvest our crops, deliver our services, and build our cities to live in fear and work under oppressed conditions", Schaaf said.
