The had to go back, but apparently the traitorous mayor of Oakland thought otherwise.
Federal officials said Tuesday they arrested more than 150 undocumented immigrants in a Northern California sweep aimed at countering local sanctuary laws, while suggesting Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf’s decision to alert the public to the secret operation may have allowed some targets to elude capture.
Since Sunday, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement officers have fanned out from the Central Valley to the far northern reaches of the state, knocking on doors, detaining people and prompting alarm from community activists and some Democratic politicians who oppose President Trump’s immigration crackdown.
Agency officials, who had remained silent about the operation for three days, said in a written statement that they arrested people in cities including San Francisco, Bay Point, Sacramento and Stockton, and that half of those arrested had criminal convictions, including for violent crimes.
The operation was named Keep Safe. Officials did not say whether the first letters of the operation were intended as a reference to Kate Steinle, the San Francisco woman shot dead on a bay pier in July 2015 by a homeless undocumented immigrant. ICE also did not say whether the sweep was over.
“Sanctuary jurisdictions like San Francisco and Oakland shield dangerous criminal aliens from federal law enforcement at the expense of public safety,” said Thomas Homan, the acting director of ICE. “Because these jurisdictions prevent ICE from arresting criminal aliens in the secure confines of a jail, they also force ICE officers to make more arrests out in the community, which poses increased risks for law enforcement and the public.”
Homan slammed Schaaf, who on Saturday night released an unprecedented warning that ICE was about to begin arresting people. Schaaf said she issued the alert after receiving confidential tips from “credible sources,” and conferring with attorneys to make sure she wasn’t opening herself up to federal prosecution.
The mayor’s move endangered ICE officers and alerted their targets, Homan asserted, “making clear that this reckless decision was based on her political agenda.” He said 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.”
Fox News, which was given a ride-along with ICE officers during the operation, reported that agency officials were asking the Department of Justice to investigate whether Schaaf broke any laws.
The mayor did not immediately respond Tuesday to a request for comment. After she released her warning, she said, “I know that Oakland is a city of law-abiding immigrants and families who deserve to live free from the constant threat of arrest and deportation. I believe it is my duty and moral obligation as Mayor to give those families fair warning when that threat appears imminent.”
The Chronicle reported in January that federal officials were planning the Northern California operation. The Trump administration has repeatedly expressed frustration at sanctuary laws in the state, which restrict cooperation between local authorities and ICE in an effort to convince undocumented immigrants they don’t need to live in the shadows.
The tension between the White House and liberal leaders in California intensified after the killing of Steinle. The undocumented immigrant shooter, Jose Ines Garcia Zarate, had previously been released from San Francisco County Jail under the city’s sanctuary ordinance, even though immigration officers had asked that he be turned over for a sixth deportation.
This week’s sweep is the second to target California since a statewide sanctuary law signed by Gov. Jerry Brown, SB54, went into effect in January. The legislation, among other things, limits the circumstances in which jails across the state can turn over undocumented inmates to ICE and forbids police from arresting people on immigration warrants.
Earlier this month, ICE arrested more than 200 immigrants suspected of being undocumented in an operation in Los Angeles. Federal agents also told 122 businesses there that they would be checking whether their employees were authorized to work. ICE launched a similar action in Northern California in January, visiting 77 businesses.
“If you take of all of the administration’s statements in context … it suggests that this is highly politically motivated and meant to send a message to California,” said Pratheepan Gulasekaram, a professor and immigration expert at Santa Clara University School of Law. The message, he said, is that “not cooperating with federal immigration authorities will result in aggressive immigration enforcement.”
The ACLU of Northern California said Tuesday that reports from rapid-response networks over the previous three days suggested “that ICE enforcement is terrorizing communities of color. The targeting of cities and states that refuse to use their limited resources to fuel the Trump administration’s deportation machine is cruel and inhumane.”
ICE said the agency “focuses its enforcement resources on individuals who pose a threat to national security, public safety, and border security.” But officials also said ICE “no longer exempts classes or categories of removable aliens from potential enforcement.”
Among those arrested this week, ICE said in a statement, was a 38-year-old “documented Sureño gang member” with four previous deportations to Mexico and multiple criminal convictions, including for assault with a deadly weapon.
In Bay Point, officials said, officers arrested a man with eight past deportations and a conviction for assault with a deadly weapon, and in Stockton they arrested a man with a conviction for committing lewd acts on a child. ICE did not release a full list of those arrested.
The Northern California sweep began three days after Trump threatened to remove ICE officers from the state, saying, “In two months they’d be begging for us to come back.”
How do you know that you live in clown world? State officials willingly break the law to suit the desires of illegals over the safety of their own people. It’s people like Oakland Mayor (((Libby Schaaf))) who have blood on their hands.
Notice the part where ICE confirmed that half of the illegals arrested already had violent criminal records? Those are (((Schaaf’s))) people. Those are the ones he’s attempting to protect.
Traitors must be arrested and put on trial. (((Schaaf))) is no exception.
It’s a step in the right direction, but I still think those statues will come down if the left has its way.
A judge in Virginia has ordered the city of Charlottesville to remove the black shrouds that were installed over two Confederate monuments after a white nationalist rally last summer.
Local news outlets report Charlottesville Circuit Court Judge Richard Moore gave the city 15 days from the time an official order is signed to remove the tarps.
They currently cover statues of Robert E. Lee and Thomas “Stonewall” Jackson. The tarps have been removed several times since being put up in August as a sign of the city’s mourning of the deadly violence at the August rally.
Moore’s decision came during a hearing in a lawsuit against the city, which is seeking to remove the monuments.
The city said in a statement that it is disappointed by the ruling but will respect the court’s decision.
Disappointed that tarps have to be taken down? Really? Find something new to complain about. One would think these people have better things to occupy their time and thoughts than worrying about a statue being offensive due to a state of society that was ended over 100 years ago.
This is my first time being booted from an entire platform. But I imagine it won’t be the last.
Free speech is dead. Freedom of association is dead. And this won’t be the last. Mass deplatforming is the new censorship in a country where people are punished for wrong think not by being persecuted, but by being silenced from the Internet.
I started to consider retiring my pen name Bre Faucheux for the purpose of writing books long before DiversityGate, and long before I started making political content. Today I made the decision to unpublish the last of the books I had published under that name. I’m still very proud of the books I wrote under it, particularly Violet Blake (even though I should have picked a better title) because they were how I learned to write good novels. I ventured into writing adult books back in 2015 and left my Bre Faucheux pen name behind. I had great success with the other pen names, and never even considered looking back.
But the core reason why I decided to stop writing YA started back in fall of 2015. I noticed a pattern with all the books I read from that particular genre. They were the same story told in different ways over and over and over again. And most of them weren’t even that good. In fact, they were less than mediocre. Of course, I was starting to get wise of the far leftist narratives that lurk in them by this time. But truthfully, I found the genre boring. I would pick up a new book and it read similar if not identical to the previous one. Strong heroine. Hunky guy. A hint of danger. And don’t get me wrong, sometimes that makes for a good novel. Even so, I was bored. I knew that if I wanted to succeed in that market, I would have to write things that were opposite to my changing values. Not to mention that writing on my other pen names was so much more fun.
Artists used to make large monuments, erect buildings, and paint paintings to make their dreary world beautiful. To make life worth living. To add a bit of aesthetic pleasure to a sad world where the average life span was less than fifty years. But now, artists create art to please their individual desires, wants and needs. Which are often rushed and quite ugly. I’m not saying I want to write literary masterpieces. I hate literary novels and always have. But the essence of writing things that are unique and beautiful has been lost to the YA world. They want something that fits a particular market and that can be hounded on for as long as possible before the craze dies out.
Now, I have nothing against authors who write to market or particular niches. I’ve done a little of that over the years. But I do have an issue with the same concepts being pushed so hard that every book sounds the same, reads the same, and is the same. Last week I ventured into the YA section of Barnes & Noble for the first time in years. I stopped reading the genre ages ago and decided I would pick up a recently published work to see if the publishers had by some miracle, taken a chance and done something different. Which I thought was a possibility given the very enticing and unique blurb on the back of this particular book.
Nope. No such luck.
It was the same story line yet again by page 40. And the fact that it was set in the 1800s but the characters had problems stemming from modern day social issues certainly didn’t help. A shame given that the concept was actually quite unique and had potential.
I’m not saying that I want each and every book to be unique. It’s been said that there are no unique ideas. Just the same stories told in different ways. But the thing is, I don’t want to know that I’m being told the same story. Make me think it’s different. If you’re going to write about vampires, make me think it’s unlike the stories I’ve already read.
The YA world (or rather the traditional publishing world in general) has an agenda and a world view that I already don’t find compatible with my beliefs. But the truth is, I don’t know why anyone would want to be traditionally published these days. When someone tells me that they want that, all I can think is that perhaps they need social approval or they think they’ll be apart of some elite club that barely makes any money from their books but has a blue check mark on Twitter. Self publishing, if done right, can make you ten times more money than 90% of traditionally published authors. I read the Twitter feeds of certain authors on a regular basis only to find that they’re constantly complaining about their publisher nixing this idea or that one. How getting published doesn’t mean you get to do what you want. That alone is revealing. It tells us that traditional publishers know that they want a very particular thing that they think will sell. They also dump the vast majority of their debut authors without proper marketing if they think the book won’t sell like they hoped. Meaning they’re not willing to take chances and they throw most of their money toward authors who have proven they can sell not even their books… but often times their internet personality.
Writing under Bre Faucheux was fun. It helped me to learn a lot. I started by learning how to take criticism by receiving bad reviews. Then I learned how to round out and conclude a story arc. I learned that I can’t be my own editor. I need help. And I learned the discipline required to complete a novel, then buckle down and write another one. To this day, I’ve written over 50 books over four pen names and I’m considering starting a new one. But not in YA. Never again.
