    Oakland Mayor Hits Back at Jeff Sessions: ‘Racist’


    Ben Margot / Associated Press

    Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf responded to Attorney General Jeff Sessions’s rebuke on Wednesday, telling reporters that Sessions and President Donald Trump were “racist” for conflating criminals with “immigrants.”

    In a speech earlier to a gathering of the California Peace Officers Association, Sessions had outlined the U.S. Department of Justice’s case against the state’s “sanctuary” laws, which it filed late Tuesday.
    He also delivered a rebuke to Schaaf for warning illegal aliens ahead of a raid by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) in February — a warning that ICE said caused 800 illegal aliens, including convicts, to escape: ”

    “How dare you. How dare you needlessly endanger the lives of law enforcement just to promote your radical open borders agenda.”

    In response, Schaaf delivered a statement at a press conference in Oakland (via CBS San Francisco):

    My response to the Attorney General’s statements this morning is as follows:

    How dare you vilify members of our community by trying to frighten the American public into thinking that all undocumented immigrants are dangerous criminals — hard-working, law-abiding Oakland’s like Eusebio and Maria Sanchez, whom you ripped away from their American-born children and the cancer patients at our public hospital who relied on Maria’s nursing skills every day?

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

    How dare you distort the reality about declining violent crime in a diverse sanctuary city like Oakland, California, to advance your racist agenda?

    I am confident that the courts will resolve the dispute between the administration and the great State of California. I am ready to get back to work doing my job as the mayor of Oakland — addressing homelessness, building affordable housing, fixing the streets, creating safe neighborhoods, and ensuring that the children of my community, no matter where they came from, or how they got here, have every opportune for success.

    Oakland’s agenda is a thriving community. Trump’s agenda is bigotry and vindictiveness.

    Sessions told Breitbart News in an exclusive interview early Tuesday morning that the Department of Justice was investigating Schaaf for her actions in warning illegal aliens of the ICE raids, but said he could not comment on the case until he had received recommendations from the department’s lawyers.

    Schaaf argued that most of the people targeted in the February raid had not been convicted of crimes other than illegal immigration.

    The same old line. Lets check their identification and tax returns.

    Think another post states ICE missed 800 illegals and they all had some sort of issue other than being in the country illegally. The snowflake is trying to save her butt now. You would expect more lawfullness from a mayor.

    She looks like the deer in the headlights!

    Go after her...serve her papers and lock her up!

    She is the criminal in the getaway car during a bank heist and tipped off the bank robbers! She is an ACCESSORY to a crime!

    You have the audacity to accuse someone of conflating criminals with immigrants when you conflate illegal immigrants with legal immigrants? Wow, you just can't make this stuff up. I don't know about everyone else, but any time I hear the word immigrant without a proceeding identifier, I assume we're talking about a legal immigrant.

    The accurate legal term is illegal alien.

    I understand what you're saying and agree. However, insisting on the enforcement of our immigration laws is not racist and she was wrong to say it. She's using a very expected and typical liberal tactic. She is using a tactic that some folks like Rep. Pelosi (D-CA), Maxine Waters (D-CA), and Shiela Lee Jackson (D-TX), just to name a few, have spent decades perfecting. It's called pulling the race card when your arrow quiver is empty of any logical and sensible argument. Using that "race card" seems to be the last arrow of defense for many on the left. That's one arrow they know their liberal friends will always pay attention to.
