A few weeks ago the mayor of Oakland, Libby Schaaf, warned people of impending ICE raids.
The head of ICE repeatedly claimed that Schaaf’s warning allowed “hundreds of criminal aliens” to remain free. Last night the ICE spokesman quit when asked to lie about the consequences of Schaaf’s warning.
“I quit because I didn’t want to perpetuate misleading facts,” he told the San Francisco Chronicle, which broke the story. “I asked them to change the information. I told them that the information was wrong, they asked me to deflect, and I didn’t agree with that. Then I took some time, and I quit.”
File this under “Even probable-monsters have their limits sometimes” and “I do not want to find common ground with supporters of this administration, I just want their ideology stamped out.”
