When you help people break the law, it is called aiding and abetting.
And if you do it as a duly elected member of state authorities, it’s even more despicable.
Of course, few Americans would be amazed to understand that a California mayor is guilty of such a lawless act; after all, that state takes great pride in breaking the law, especially in regards to illegal immigration.
But it appears Oakland mayor Libby Schaaf went too far, and she’s facing the company end of a very serious lawsuit.
The Immigration Reform Law Institute (IRLI) filed a lawsuit yesterday, wanting to force the city of Oakland to produce documents associated with Schaaf’s choice to”tip off” illegal aliens.
Quite simply, the mayor was helping illegal aliens prevent immigration authorities, and the IRLI is sick of these behaviour.
“We’re’tired of those local and state authorities that are thumbing their nose duly enacted immigration legislation,’ IRLI Executive Director Dale Wilcox told Breitbart News Deputy Political Editor Amanda House.”
How large of an effect did Schaaf’s illegal tip-offs have? Check out this:
“In February, a San Francisco Bay-wide operation by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) aimed at criminal illegal aliens netted 232 apprehensions, including 115 with severe criminal records.
However, based on ICE Manager Thomas Homan, more than 800 others escaped after Libby Schaaf broke the secrecy of the action, specifically in order to safeguard illegals from discovery.”
Attorney General Jeff Sessions went further:
“’How dare you?’ He asked through his statement of his department’s suits to strike down California’s so-called’refuge’ policies.
‘How dare you endanger the lives of our law enforcement officers to promote a radical open borders schedule? `”
Sessions speaks for many patriotic Americans, that is for darn sure.
Now, ideally, Schaaf is going to pay. The IRLI wants copies of emails and other internal communications involving the mayor and her staff, related to all those illegal tip-offs. Finished Wilcox:
“I think [the records are] likely to expose [Schaaf and her staff] radical open-borders philosophy and how… [Schaaf] has been scheming together with the chief of police.
She’s mentioned in news reports about discussions she has had with her chief of police over tipping off illegal aliens.
She has been quite brazen. She has really said she’s prepared to go to prison to defend criminal illegal aliens”
This, here, is what needs to prevent.
If we’re going to have a really law-abiding society, these people today need to GO. Immediately.
