HeadlineFeb 26, 2018

Back in the United States, Oakland, California, Mayor Libby Schaaf held an unusual press conference on Sunday warning residents of a possible ICE raid in the coming days.

Mayor Libby Schaaf: “Yesterday, I learned information from multiple sources that there is potentially an ICE activity planned in the Bay Area that could be starting as soon as today. My priority is to keep this community safe. It is not my wish to panic people, but to ensure that they’re prepared with information, that they know their rights, as well as their responsibilities, and know about the resources that this community offers.”

Oakland is a sanctuary city, which has barred city employees from assisting ICE raids.
