Protesters Descend On ICE San Francisco Headquarters After Immigration Raids

"What she did is not better than a gang lookout yelling, 'police, ' when a police cruiser comes into a neighborhood of criminals except she did it to an entire community", Homan said.

"Sanctuary jurisdictions like San Francisco and Oakland shield unsafe criminal aliens from federal law enforcement at the expense of public safety", said ICE Deputy Director Thomas D. Homan in a statement.

The subject of ICE raids and arrests has been on the mind of many Bay Area politicians, including Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf, who issued a controversial warning to affected communities despite critics.

"Almost half of the arrests targeted criminal illegal aliens, including those with convictions for assault and battery, weapons charges and crimes against children", Townhall reported.

The Mayor of Oakland, Libby Schaaf, announced over the weekend that she would share news about immigration raids, thereby letting illegal immigrants know ahead of time that the raids were coming. However, 864 criminal aliens and public safety threats remain at large in the community, and I have to believe that some of them were able to elude us thanks to the mayor's irresponsible decision.

Homan, in a statement, said sanctuary jurisdictions like San Francisco and Oakland "shield unsafe criminal aliens from federal law enforcement at the expense of public safety".

"There's over 800 significant public safety threat criminals ... that we are unable to locate because of that warning, so that community's a lot less safe than it would've been". President Donald Trump has held up the verdict as an outrageous example of how San Francisco's '"sanctuary city" laws fly in the face of public safety.

In numerous arrests reported so far, people opened their doors for ICE and answered questions.

Juan Pierto, an undocumented 25-year-old who has been living in the US for 17 years, said depression is rising in his family.

That same day, police apprehended the suspect in Nara Prefecture on suspicion of confining the woman in the Higashinari residence. The local media identified the woman as a 27-year-old company employee from Sanda city, in neighbouring Hyogo prefecture.

She said the couple's daughter watched as agents put him in the back of their vehicle.

"However, ICE no longer exempts classes or categories of removable aliens from potential enforcement", he said. Some have suggested she may have obstructed justice by pre-empting the raids.

The warring words are the latest sign of escalating tension between California officials and the Trump administration over immigration enforcement and "sanctuary" jurisdictions.

The mayor, who is running for another term this year, defended her actions again on Wednesday, saying she was not tipped off by "official sources" and that she didn't reveal specific locations. Schaaf's warning was the boldest move yet by a mayor to counter the Trump administration's immigration-enforcement efforts.

Helena said that ICE agents went into her family's backyard in Napa, California, asked her husband his name and then arrested him on the spot.

Oakland's sanctuary city laws are some of the toughest in the country.

In response, Villalpando and Mijente filed Freedom of Information Act requests pressing ICE to reveal details about enforcement actions resulting from public statements and political activity, including "anti-ICE protests".

A Boston police spokesman said Wednesday that the department couldn't release information about the arrest records of the 68 people ICE wanted to pick up previous year, citing privacy laws.

"It used to be that ICE used to raid people at their homes or at jobs", Suarez said.
