Sessions Personally Goes After Oakland Sanctuary Mayor With Blunt Media Broadside
The Western Journal ^ | March 7, 2018 at 11:53am | Chris Agee

In the wake of news that the United States is suing California for its immigration laws, U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions took aim at the state’s leaders, and one mayor in particular.

He singled out Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf, who sparked controversy last month by warning the city’s residents of an impending federal immigration raid.

That move led to backlash from officials including Immigration and Customs Enforcement Director Thomas Homan. He confirmed that the agency would be launching a “review” of what he called an “irresponsible decision” that tipped off criminals living in the state.

Sessions maintained that tone in comments he made Wednesday morning during a speech at an event supporting the law enforcement community.

“Federal agents must be able to do that job that Congress directed them to do,” he said, asserting that policies like those of Schaaf and others across the state put the lives of officers in jeopardy.

Here is comes.

“So here’s my message for Mayor Schaff: How dare you,” he (Sessions) said. “How dare you needlessly endanger the lives of our law enforcement officers to promote a radical open borders agenda.”

Yes, it is time for the disrespectful nonsense directed to the Trump Administration to stop>

They’ll keep daring until we get a real attorney general that will put these seditionist rat bastards in prison.

Stop with the strongly worded letters. How can what this mayor did not be obstruction of justice? Arrest her and get on with the trial.

How about some charges filed and arrests? That’s what happens when you break the law.

“C’mon Jeff start filing charges!”

Session’s “tough talk” didn’t fool me.

People are committing crimes, yet NO appetite to charge.

A law suit? Boo.

sorry, Mr Sessions, but that’s all talk and legal bullsheet.
which can take years to resolve anyway

you’ve done nothing more than just punt the dangerous status quo down the block until your term of office expires

first, if you wanted to file in court, it is the USSupremes that have original jurisdiction on disputes with the states

second, why not just arrest Brown and the mayor of Oakland , for starters?

Do you think an Oakland or California jury would vote to convict?

Imagine if someone started a rumor that these illegals were all invited to take “refuge” at Mayor Schaaf’s personal home and her office.

All this keyboard cowboy tough talk will be ignored, fortunately. It would be an immensely stupid thing to start arresting Democrats at this point.

Let the suit run its course.

I believe the Constitution requires that Federal crimes must be tried in the State where the crimes were committed.

Art III Sec. 2 paragraph 3: “The Trial of all Crimes, except in Cases of Impeachment, shall be by Jury; and such Trial shall be held in the State where the said Crimes shall have been committed”
