Democrats have ramped up their resistance to President Trump.
Now elected officials are openly defying the law.
But Trump’s had enough and accused this high profile Democrat of a major crime that could land her behind bars.
Oakland’s Democrat Mayor Libby Schaaf made national headlines when she tipped off illegal aliens about an upcoming ICE raid.
Hundreds of illegal aliens escaped capture.
Trump was outraged that an elected official who was put into office by American citizens would prioritize the well-being of illegal aliens – some of whom were violent criminals – over the safety and security of the American people.
At an event in West Virginia, Trump accused Schaaf of obstructing justice.
Fox News reports:
“President Donald Trump declared Thursday that he believes Oakland, Calif. Mayor Libby Schaaf (D) committed obstruction of justice by warning the illegal immigrant community of a pending ICE raid.
“How about the mayor of Oakland, where she tells a thousand people to get going [because] law enforcement is coming to get [them]?” Trump asked the crowd at a tax reform roundtable in White Sulphur Springs, West Virginia.
Trump said Schaaf intentionally planned the announcement after getting tipped off about the ICE operation.
“To me, that’s obstruction of justice and something should happen there,” he said.
Trump said his administration has “liberated” other American cities from illegal immigrant-led gangs and the like.
He mentioned that several towns on Long Island, N.Y. – like Central Islip and Brentwood – have been greatly affected by MS-13.
Trump said that, as a native of Jamaica, Queens, he knows Long Island well and pledged to continue to keep it from being further “taken over by thugs.”
Attorney General Jeff Sessions previously stated the Department of Justice was looking into whether Schaaf had obstructed justice.
Trump supporters believe action should be taken.
Federal immigration law is the law of the land.
Oakland doesn’t get to pick and choose which laws it enforces.
And Schaaf’s conduct went well beyond “resistance.”
She actively sabotaged a law enforcement action.
Do you believe she should be sent to jail for obstructing justice?
