On Friday, the father of a 17-year-old boy who was killed by an illegal immigrant from Mexico blistered the mayor of Oakland for revealing where an ICE raid was to take place, saying she had “blood on her hands.”
Jamiel Shaw Sr., whose son Jamiel Shaw Jr. was murdered in 2008 by illegal immigrant Pedro Espinoza, appeared on Fox & Friends, where he blasted Mayor Libby Schaaf for announcing an imminent February ICE raid by tweeting the revelation out. She has 20,000 followers on Twitter; Oakland is a “sanctuary city.”
Shaw was furious as he stated:
You know, it was just disgusting. Her job is to protect the citizens, the American citizens, you know. And for her to take a stand like that, she’s allowing Americans to be murdered. She has blood on her hands because she could have easily just let them go into the jail system and capture those criminals, but she allowed them to come out, and then for people to be murdered and raped and robbed and identity theft; that’s all on her and people like her.
Host Steve Doocy pointed out that many people had called for Schaaf to be prosecuted. He asked Shaw, “For what?”
Shaw was ready:
For aiding and abetting, for putting our lives in danger Right now, you’re hearing everybody demanding to be safe in their schools and their communities. When our kids are murdered, and we demand to be safe, we’re all racists and we’re all bigots, and because Trump supports us, we’re all bad people. But when their kids are dead, they’re shutting down the city and they want all these gun laws and stuff like that. The guy who killed my son was on his third gun charge! But they don’t care if illegal aliens carry guns and kill our kids.
In the ICE raid that Schaaf attempted to quash, over 200 illegal immigrants were arrested; roughly 180 “were either convicted criminals, had been issued a final order of removal and failed to depart the United States, or had been previously removed.”
As The Blaze notes, “In response to the Schaaf’s move, acting ICE Director Thomas Homan revealed that the Department of Justice would launch an investigation as to whether Schaaf obstructed justice, and later noted that he believed her announcement helped 800 illegal immigrants avoid deportation.”
