ICE arrests more than 150 people in Bay Area after Oakland mayor warned illegals

From Fox News: Federal immigration officials have arrested more than 150 individuals in violation of federal U.S. immigration law in Northern California this week despite the Oakland mayor warning of an impending raid.

U.S. Immigrations and Customs Enforcement (ICE) made the arrests in the San Francisco Bay Area starting Sunday as part of “targeted immigration enforcement operations,” the agency told Fox News on Tuesday.

Roughly half of those arrested by deportation officers have convictions for assault and battery, crimes against children, weapons charges and DUI, according to the agency.

ICE highlighted the arrest of one fugitive of the federal agency in particular, who officials stated is a documented gang member.

Armando Nuñez-Salgado, 38, of Mexico, was arrested Sunday as part of ICE’s widespread raid, spokesperson James Schwab, of the San Francisco bureau, told Fox News.

“Over the past 18 years [Nuñez-Salgado] has accumulated criminal convictions in California that have resulted in more than 15 years of prison sentencings,” Schwab said, adding the man “has been previously removed by ICE on four prior occasions” and is a member of the Sureño street gang.

Other arrests include that of another Sureños gang member and other illegal immigrants with criminal convictions from Mexico and Guatemala throughout Northern California.

The arrests come in the days after Libby Schaaf, the Democratic mayor of Oakland, posted a press release to Twitter warning constituents illegal aliens in the sanctuary city that “multiple credible sources” told her ICE would be conducting a raid in the Bay Area as soon as Sunday.

Schaaf received swift backlash following her post, with many arguing over the legality of such a warning.

“The Oakland mayor’s decision to publicize her suspicions about ICE operations further increased that risk for my officers and alerted criminal aliens — making clear that this reckless decision was based on her political agenda,” ICE Deputy Director Thomas Homan said in a statement Tuesday. “Unlike the politicians who attempt to undermine ICE’s critical mission, our officers will continue to fulfill their sworn duty to protect public safety.”

However, the mayor stood by her decision, saying she felt as though it was her “duty” to share the information. ICE officials told Fox News they’re asking the Department of Justice to look into whether Schaaf broke any laws by giving the warning.

Further details of ICE’s immediate activities in the Bay Area remain unclear, although the agency says 864 illegal immigrants with criminal convictions and other public safety threats “remain at large” in the area — two of whom are believed to be living in Oakland.

Homan believes Schaaf’s warning aided those illegal immigrants in eluding law enforcement.

  1. What this mayor did is called treason. It is called treason because she aided and abetted the enemy. Now if our justice system could somehow see itself clear to start making sure those who commit treason against these United States of America and hang a few for committing treason, we might start getting somewhere with those who break the law.

    • Criminal behavior:

      “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, US 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.

      “There’s over 800 significant public safety threat criminals, these are people who are here illegally and committed yet another crime, been convicted of a crime,” he told Fox. “She gave them warning, and there’s 800 that we were unable to locate because of that warning, so that community’s a lot less safe than it would have been.”

    • I call upon ICE to release any known names/aliases/MO’s of those whom Libby Schaaf warned/aided/abetted in an escape of apprehension due to illegal activities (including, being in the country illegally….sometimes serially after continuous removals). When/if any of these perpetrate crimes upon American citizens or others……and are confirmed by identification thereof, she should be arrested and tried in tandem with the perp as an accomplice in crime. She should also be liable for civil complaint/damages by the citizens so damaged by whatever action was perpetrated by the illegals whom she aided an abetted in their escape from Federal detention. Federal Law trumps State….which we proved through copious bloodshed 1861-1865. Do we have to do it again? Our immigration laws as they stand, are not being enforced, nor have they been CHANGED yet by Congress. According to the Constitution—ALL immigration laws/decisions/handling is the duty of the CONGRESS….and NOT the states (which the states have been yammering about anyway—they don’t think they have to “help”—translation, cooperate, with Federal Laws…… nor the executive—i.e., , the Obama “Dreamer” executive “order,” which, BTW, can be vacated at will, legally, by ANY successive POTUS without recourse.,,,b/c it is JUST an “executive order” without the support of any balance of power in our Constitution, and without Supreme Court oversight/review—is NOTHING in the end—and it was a “gift” that Trump “allowed” it to continue to the March date of over a year past his entry into office, b/c he could have vacated it day ONE on his inaugural day….these people AND the DEMS constantly look a “gift horse in the mouth” and then ask for MORE……)

  3. I have to assume that these things are contrived. Nobody here, if in a position of authority, would allow this. The Federal Marshals should have been first on the scene to take her into custody.

    We have Trump bad-mouthing Sessions, who works for HIM. We have this sort of open rebellion, that amounts to nothing more than following the loser’s agenda in spite of the fact that they lost. We have mountains and acres of evidence against Obongo, Clinton and the whole filthy mess. Still, nothing.

    Actually, Trump is serving a purpose. He is giving them a focal point to snipe at while they go right ahead with their Maoist business as usual. I don’t think it could get anymore blatant. She is issuing a challenge and no one is rising to it.

    • unfortunately you ‘re correct. real swamp draining would ensure that Killary Klinton and her Krime Kartel would be behind bars and her assets seized with the edict he issued a couple months back. The same would apply to all criminal activity – including Obola and his treasonous activity- never seen before that an ex prez organises in order to depose a sitting prez. Soros assets should be seized too.

    • You are so right. All of it now stinks to high heavens of scripted collusion and public theater, left against right, and nothing gets done—except of course the Republican Congress and Trump enacting the Dems budget outrages and fully funding Planned Parenthood for two full years. But none of it quite stinks like this business with Sessions.

      The fake economic miracle is Potemkin Village insult to the tens of millions of dispossessed Americans whose families have been devastated and lost everything after the Goldman Sachs types, still pillaging this economy under Trump, shipped their jobs to Mexico and China.

      The wars Trump vowed to keep us from are probably not far away, and pretty soon Fox News’ cucks will be beating the war drums for the incineration of entire nations like Iran and NKorea.

  4. What kind of mindset does it take to think that preventing the capture of individuals who are guilty of crimes up to and including crimes against children? I hope with all my might that the DOJ acts swiftly in dealing with this demented woman. She needs to be sent to one of California’s “meanest” prisons (you can interpret that as one that is
    non-country club.)

    This is such a travesty. I would hope that next time around, the voters will put on their thinking hats and really look at the hearts and minds of the candidates–and choose someone who values their peace and safety, which obviously this woman does not. I would wonder if in the future, ICE should avoid giving out this kind of intel so that it cannot be fed to the likes of her.

    DCG . . . Bravo! Excellent article! Thank you.

  5. Way to go, ICE!

    Meanwhile, an ICE official said yesterday 800 illegal aliens in Northern California avoided arrest because of Mayor Schaaf’s warning about ICE raids in the area.

  6. I can think of at least ten statutes she’s in violation of. Isn’t it neat to know that these lefties think that if you’re one of the “Kool Kidz” the law doesn’t apply to you? You can aid and abet criminals, obstruct justice, whatever.

    Nothing will happen because, you’re not a “white supremacist”. Somebody needs to make people like her offers they can’t refuse. We have a separate lawless government operating right under our noses.

  7. This country is based on Laws and with that being said if you break the Law you put them in jail. Since the clintons everything is now off limits if your an elites you can buy your way out or throw your weight around to get out of what ever. Or spin it as your the victim and the rest of the country will side with you doesn’t matter if they broke the law some way they will get out of it. It’s about time we went back to the Law and start enforcing them and put these folks in jail. I mean if you don’t your setting a preference that money and power is above the Law and do what they want.

    • Yes, we have a nation based on laws. It is bad enough when a citizen breaks the law. When elected officials break the law it is subversion. So we actually have a “soft coup” which is only working because the so-called opposition isn’t going to do anything about it.

  8. It has gotten out of the hands of the law because nobody cared to apply the law except when it meant to benefit them, no matter how much we try to make it right I doubt very much we can advance because out of the shadows obstacles will appear, please correct me if I am wrong but, for every step forward we take, three steps will set us backwards, my heart is broken for I see so much dirt and corruption going on.

  10. If Jeff Sessions doesn’t get off his sorry arse and start going after these felonious politicians in earnest, he needs to be run off.

    Seriously, this goober has been in charge of the DOJ for over a year now, and I have yet to see any commie-libs charged with anything.

    Little wonder he’s in Trump’s doghouse.

    • I had it with all of them. It looks for all the world to me to be a big sham. Sessions works for Trump. If he likes what he’s doing I don’t have any use for either of them. If he doesn’t like what he’s doing he should fire him. There are many prosecutions to be done. He needs to get started.

      • I think Trump has about had it with Sessions.

        Trump is not all that patient with slackers, which is a good thing.

        I realize it takes time to get criminal prosecutions right, because you are only going to get one shot (see Simpson, O.J.) but this is starting to get a little ridiculous.

        • Dave, it’s been a year. He hasn’t been “slack”, he’s been obstructionist. He is completely aware of what his boss wants (at least that’s what they’re telling us), and still, nothing.

          He should have been fired when he recused himself. He should never have let them put Mueller in there and given him a blank check. So, again, I have to ask. Is he that thick that he doesn’t see the obvious? Somehow, I don’t think so.

          He could not get worse press than he gets right now. In fact, he should have already taken steps to throw a wet blanket on that. Reinstate the Fairness Doctrine and cancel their broadcast licenses if they don’t comply.

          They’ll only scream a short while until they’re fired. Obongo is running this whole operation. That’s another avenue for a prosecutor. He needs a prosecutor not a swamp rat.

  11. An interesting bit of info on “Libby” Schaaf. She is part of the “Leadership Council” for Kiva Microfunds or This Kiva does micro-loans (at high interest rates) around the world to poor people who otherwise and purportedly wouldn’t/couldn’t get a loan. It sounds like a very shady business…
