The acting Director of the Immigration and Customs Enforcement Agency didn’t mince words when commenting on the Oakland, California mayor’s decision to “tip off” illegal immigrants on potential ICE raids; saying the liberal politician was acting like a “gang lookout.”
Director Thomas Homan slammed Mayor Libby Schaaf Wednesday after she posted information about potential law enforcement sweeps on social media; instructing undocumented workers in the Bay Area to be on the lookout for federal agents.
“What she did is no better than a gang lookout yelling police when a police cruiser comes to the neighborhood except she did it to entire community of the this is beyond the pale,” Homan told Fox News. “This is a whole new low to intentionally warn criminals that law enforcement is coming. I can’t believe it happened.”
“She intentionally put law enforcement officers at risk. Being a law enforcement officer is dangerous enough. But to give criminals a head’s up we’re coming next 24 hours, increases the risk,” he added.
