California mayor issues warning of ICE sweep

SFGateThe relationship between U.S. immigration officials and California’s liberal leaders soured long ago, but Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf’s decision to warn potential targets of federal arrest that an immigration sweep could be imminent was an extraordinary escalation.

Schaaf said she issued the alert Saturday night after receiving confidential tips from “credible sources” who revealed that U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, known as ICE, was planning arrests across the Bay Area as soon as Sunday.

Obstruction of justice is still a crime, isn't it? Passively not cooperating is one thing, but actively warning criminals is another.

UPDATE: The warning helped 850 illegals evade deportation.

Likely terror attack in Pennsylvania

A shooting spree by a man with an islamic/arab name, originally from Turkey, recently traveled to the middle east. Officials say he was targeting police officers. And the FBI appear to have stopped another attack before it was carried out, although in the latter case, we see the usual pattern of an FBI informant urging an individual to specific violent acts.

We can't stop terrorist attacks by pretending there are no terrorist attacks.

UPDATE: He's here on a chain-migration visa through a distant relative.
