White House defends ICE, Border Patrol from California attacks

Vice President Mike Pence delivered a fierce defense of federal immigration agents and officers Thursday, calling them “heroes,” amid a growing opposition from California officials.

“We are with you 100 percent,” Mr. Pence told Homeland Security employees gathered to commemorate the department’s 15-year anniversary.

The Trump administration is in an escalating battle with California, where the Oakland mayor tipped off illegal immigrants to looming sweeps by federal authorities, and where the state attorney general accused U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement of “terrorizing communities.”

Homeland Security officials have pushed back, and on Thursday the White House got involved, with Mr. Pence and Chief of Staff John F. Kelly mounting a vigorous defense of the department and its employees.

    Uhh, Pence, Stop debating treasonous acts! You can arrest them for Seditious conspiracy!

    Seditious conspiracy (18 U.S.C. § 2384) is a crime under United States law.

    It is stated as follows:
    If two or more persons in any State or Territory, or in any place subject to the jurisdiction of the United States, conspire to overthrow, put down, or to destroy by force the Government of the United States, or to levy war against them, or to oppose by force the authority thereof, or by force to prevent, hinder, or delay the execution of any law of the United States, or by force to seize, take, or possess any property of the United States contrary to the authority thereof, they shall each be fined or imprisoned not more than 20 years, or both.

    I believe they should also be looking into the laws about “aiding and abetting” in the commitment of a crime. CRIME: (LEGAL DEFINITION: A crime is a wrongdoing classified by the state or Congress as a felony or misdemeanor) (Often a crime which is a misdemeanor for the first offense becomes a felony for repeated offenses).
    Let the courts (but not in california) decide if the mayor commited a crime or not.
