232 arrested in massive Northern California ICE sweep

Schaaf posted the alert to Twitter on Saturday after she said she received multiple tips that ICE was planning an operation in the Bay Area.

The federal agency's acting director, Thomas Homan, said Wednesday that Schaaf's warning caused about 800 "criminals" to elude capture, an extraordinarily high number of missed targets.

The mayor warned residents over the weekend of large-scale, impending raids by immigration agents in the San Francisco Bay Area, escalating tensions between California officials and the Trump administration.

Federal immigration officials concluded Wednesday a days-long sweep of Northern California in the days since a warning of their raid was blasted out by a public official - a move which U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) says "created another magnet for more illegal immigration".

"ICE's career law enforcement professionals are charged with enforcing immigration laws passed by Congress, and recent operations in the Bay Area were consistent with ICE's lawful mission", the agency said in a statement in response to the allegations.

The U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) deportation officers said 115 of those arrested had prior felony convictions for serious or violent offenses, such as child sex crimes, weapons charges, and assault, or had past convictions for significant or multiple misdemeanors.

She said Schaaf's actions were under "review" but would not be more specific. Over the same time period, the network received more than 350 calls from people-some who had a relative detained, others who just wanted to know about a rumor of ICE activity in their neighborhood.

"As she stated it, it was her objective to make her community safe", Levenson said.

Ms. Schaaf, whose office didn't respond to a request for comment from The Washington Times, has publicly defended her warning, saying she has no regrets.

"This raid was intended exclusively to terrorize innocent immigrant families and instill fear in the hearts of our communities-not to keep Americans safe", she said.

"I continue to feel confident that what I did was the right thing and was legal", Schaaf told reporters. It is Oakland's legal right to be a sanctuary city and we have not broken any laws. "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". "ICE will also likely have to detain individuals arrested in California in detention facilities outside of the state, far from any family they may have in California".
