SF ICE Spokesperson Resigns: “I Didn’t Want to Perpetuate Misleading Facts”

H12 sf ice spokesperson resigns

Trump’s trip to California comes as the San Francisco spokesperson for ICE has resigned, saying Trump administration officials have repeatedly and falsely exaggerated the number of people who evaded arrest after Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf warned the community about impending ICE raids across Northern California. Attorney General Jeff Sessions and others have claimed up to 800 people were able to avoid being detained by ICE because of the mayor’s warning. The former San Francisco spokesperson for ICE, James Schwab, says the real number is far lower, and that he quit “because I didn’t want to perpetuate misleading facts.”
