"I do not regret sharing this information", she said in a statement Tuesday. "It is Oakland's legal right to be a sanctuary city". "My priority is for the well-being and safety of all residents - particularly our most vulnerable - and I know that Oakland is safer when we share information, encourage community awareness and care for our neighbors".

ICE said those arrested included several people with convictions for crimes such as assault with a deadly weapon, including a man who had been previously deported to Mexico eight times. Since that course of action would create many more problems than it would solve, we expressed our opinion that it is hard to imagine Trump actually taking that extreme action. In fact, the U.S. Department of Justice is weighing a possible review of her action in contemplation of a possible obstruction-of-justice charge. Now, "you have essentially an nearly guerrilla movement by local authorities to try and undo federal law enforcement efforts". Homan and other top administration officials have been highly critical of the law and suggested ICE would carry out more operations in California to compensate for the state's lack of cooperation on immigration enforcement.
