Demonstrators protest the deportation of immigrants
ICE authorities arrested more than 150 people in Northern California last month, two days after Schaaf warned residents of the impending raids, citing "credible sources". "But to blame her for 800 risky people out there is just false", Schwab told CNN. Schwab told CNN he took issue with the statement, noting that ICE never picks up 100 percent of their targets and claiming that it was "misleading" to call these undocumented immigrants unsafe. "I asked them to change the information".
The former ICE spokesman added he didn't want to "fabricate" the truth to defend the agency against Schaaf's actions - noting he was told to "deflect" to previous statements even if those statements did not clarify the wrong information. "Then I took some time and I quit". "Personally I think her actions were misguided and not responsible". Schaaf's actions "clearly had an impact" on the number of arrests, though the agency can't put a number on it.
Pelosi has repeatedly called Trump's enforcement efforts "cowardly", and blamed ICE for terrorizing immigrant communities, however, Homan said agents are just protecting Americans. According to ICE, of the 232 people picked up, 115 had felonies or misdemeanors.
"It's a false statement because we never pick up 100% of our targets. To say that 100 percent are unsafe criminals on the street, or that those people weren't picked up because of the misguided actions of the mayor, is just wrong", he told the San Francisco Chronicle yesterday (March 12). A spokesperson instead referred to Homan's original statement regarding the 864 people "at large".
Schwab said he was told to reinforce statements made by top ICE officials, including a February 27 press release that reported more than 800 undocumented immigrants eluded arrest because of Schaaf's warning to the public about the four-day operation.
Allen Robinson reportedly will sign with Bears
This likely wasn't a "bid against themselves" situation like the Bears found themselves in with Mike Glennon last season. That historically bad season at receiver put the franchise in position to aggressively find Trubisky a No. 1 wideout.
Buffalo Bills, Star Lotulelei agree to 5-year deal
Lotulelei is considered a good run stopper but has been overshadowed by Kawann Short in terms of playmaking ability. The longest-tenured player on Buffalo's roster will continue to hold that title for one more season.
