President Trump said Thursday that his administration is looking to see how it can punish Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf for her warning last month alerting illegal immigrants to impending sweeps by federal authorities.

Mr. Trump called her move “a disgrace” and said it put law enforcement agents at risk.

And he said sanctuary cities should be forced to give up federal grant money, and predicted his administration will prevail in the new lawsuit it filed this week against California over three new state laws that restrict cooperation with federal law enforcement.

Mr. Trump took particular aim at Ms. Schaaf, and appeared to confirm that his Justice Department is considering whether she can face consequences for her ruling.

    …law suits? …defunding?

    Sanctuary city policies violate US Immigration laws! Your DOJ can …arrest ALL these asssoles now!

    AG Sessions, your weak left handed effort to “defund??” sanctuary cities for failing to help ICE deport illegal aliens is a laughable diversion from the law.

    That is akin to merely stopping welfare checks for the person that helps a thief break into your home and …………leaving the thief there!

    You can arrest all the treasonous sanctuary city fathers now! …Why? because it is the law! You do not need more agents or another law!

    The Law Against Hiring or Harboring Illegal Aliens

    fairus. org/issue/the-law-against-hiring-or-harboring-illegal-aliens

    8 U.S. Code § 1324a – Unlawful employment of aliens

    law. cornell. edu/uscode/text/8/1324a

    The following is an overview of federal law on hiring and harboring illegal aliens. It is not a substitute for professional legal counsel in specific situations.

    Summary

    A person (including a group of persons, business, organization or local government) commits a federal felony when he:

    assists an alien whom he should reasonably know is illegally in the U.S. or who lacks employment authorization, by transporting, sheltering, or assisting him to obtain employment, encourages that alien to remain in the U.S., by referring him to an employer, by acting as employer or agent for an employer in any way, or knowingly assists illegal aliens due to personal convictions.

    Penalties upon conviction include criminal fines, imprisonment, and forfeiture of vehicles and real property used to commit the crime.

    Anyone employing or contracting with an illegal alien without verifying his work authorization status is guilty of a misdemeanor. Aliens and employers violating immigration laws are subject to arrest, detention, and seizure of their vehicles or property. In addition, individuals or entities who engage in racketeering enterprises that commit (or conspire to commit) immigration-related felonies are subject to private civil suits for treble damages and injunctive relief.

    >>> Even AG Sessions should know this! ……..So W T F is he doing?

    Hmm, I think I know, he shifted the argument to one he will lose in court!

    >>> Sanctuary Cities can show harm in court for losing funds.
    >>> Sanctuary Cities can NOT show cause in court for violating US Law.

    OF COURSE THE LAW CAN ARREST HER OR ANYONE FOR AIDING AND ABIDING PEOPLE THAT HELP ANYONE THAT IS OR HAS COMMITTED A CRIME. THEY CAN ARREST A PERSON FOR HIDING ONE IN THEIR HOUSE. GET REAL AND DO YOUR JOB, DO NOT HESITATE BECAUSE SHE IS A MAYOR, OR A GOVERNER, OR STATES ATTORNEY ETC, THESE PEOPLE ARE NOT ABOVE THE LAW.

    The Supreme Court of the US said in the Arizona case the federal government is in charge of immigration and its laws, not the states. Therefore, the mayor in Oakland is breaking federal law and should be charged.
