The Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency just completed another series of raids inside of California netting 150 addition criminal illegal aliens in their widespread sweep of Northern California.
Both the Trump Administration, The Immigration, and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency has been in a literal war with California's leadership after Governor Jerry Brown signed a "Sanctuary State" bill into law that began in early 2018.

ICE Acting Director Tom Homan has repeatedly stated that contrary to the state of California's efforts to protect illegal aliens, ICE would continue to send in routine sweeps to round up dangerous threats to American citizens and send them back to where they belong.
Since Sunday, more than 150 illegals have been taken into custody, according to<a href="https://www.nbcbayarea.com/news/local/News-Rumors-of-ICE-Raids-Fueling-Fear-in-Bay-Area-475347563.html"> NBC Bay Area. </a>
The most recent raids are in participation with the activities of the Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO), which itself has conducted endless sweeps across the San Francisco Bay area to not only locate but to also arrest the would-be dangerous illegals in which have plagued numerous California community.
ICE spokesperson James Schwab said the current raids are "consistent with federal law and agency policy, to arrest individuals who have violated U.S. immigration laws."
With California's current sanctuary status, the state government has barred all law enforcement agencies, from local police to county Sheriff's offices, to state police from assisting in any way with sharing information on illegals with ICE, unless those agencies have detained an illegal for a serious felony charge.
This means that ICE has to take to the streets of California and perform what's referred to as "old-fashioned" Detective work, using the National Criminal Analysis and Targeting center (NCATC) to help build a database on both criminal syndicates, illegal alien gang activity, and also businesses that are known to employ illegals over American citizens.
"This operation is a continuation of ICE's efforts to prioritize enforcement against public safety threats," Schwab said.

"Sanctuary jurisdictions like San Francisco and Oakland shield dangerous criminal aliens from federal law enforcement at the expense of public safety," said ICE Deputy Director Thomas D. Homan. "Because these jurisdictions prevent ICE from arresting criminal aliens in the secure confines of a jail, they also force ICE officers to make more arrests out in the community, which poses increased risks for law enforcement and the public."
This comes after Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf has become a threat to the American people, and the citizens of California, tipping off illegal aliens that ICE was performing the widespread sweeps through the region.
Libby Schaaf issued a statement, saying, "Earlier today, I learned from multiple credible sources that the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) is preparing to conduct an operation in the Bay Area, including Oakland, starting as soon as within the next 24 hours.As Mayor of Oakland, I am sharing this information publicly not to panic our residents but to protect them."
This defiance has many GOP pundits calling for the arrest of Mayor Schaaf, who by tipping off the illegal criminals not only compromised the efforts of ICE to arrest the nearly 1,000 targets they'd intended to bring to justice, but also endangered the lives of the ICE Agents who were involved in the operation.
ICE Deputy Director Thomas D. Homan stated that he believed 864 illegal aliens who are still in the crosshairs of ICE's ERO team "were able to elude our thanks to the mayor's irresponsible decision."
"Sanctuary jurisdictions like San Francisco and Oakland shield dangerous criminal aliens from federal law enforcement at the expense of public safety," Director Homan said."The Oakland mayor's decision to publicize her suspicions about ICE operations further increased risks for my officers and alerted criminal aliens, making clear that this reckless decision was based on her political agenda with the very federal laws that ICE is sworn to uphold."

Under Governor Jerry Brown, who many liken to that of a Communist dictator, the state of California has placed the values of illegals before the safety of California's citizens.
Despite the push from Brown to keep ICE Agents at an arm's length distance from local police and Sheriff's Deputies in regards to communicating and sharing intelligence on the illegal alien threats, Director Homan has relentlessly sent removal teams into California cities to apprehend those who would do harm to American citizens.
Just last week,<a href="https://thegoldwater.com/news/18589-ICE-Sweep-Arrests-212-Illegal-Aliens-and-Cracks-Down-on-122-LA-Businesses"> ICE focused efforts </a>at shutting down 122 Los Angeles-based businesses who potentially hire illegal aliens, sending audit notices to each of the employers.
In that same sweep, nearly 212 dangerous criminal aliens were also arrested inside the Democratic Party's stronghold of Southern California.
ICE has also stated that nearly 88% of the illegal aliens arrested were previously convicted criminals, further destroying the attempts to portray many of these individuals as simply "wanting to work and provide for their families," an atrocious propaganda effort spewed by the far-left in order to generate support for their continued allowance of these fugitives into their cities.
Earlier this month,<a href="https://thegoldwater.com/news/18526-Data-Shows-90-of-ICE-Arrests-Had-Pending-Charges-and-Criminal-Records"> The Goldwater reported </a>that the Pew Research Center has determined 90% of all illegal aliens arrested by ICE have prior criminal convictions.
Nearly two-thirds of every illegal alien arrested under the Trump Administration's reforming of ICE have prior felony convictions for serious or violent offenses, such as child sex crimes, weapons charges, and assault, or had past convictions for significant or multiple misdemeanors.
These aren't "dreamers" that pose no threat to Americans, they're dangerous individuals who choose a life of crime for income versus simply enjoying America's rule of law and order.
"Because sanctuary jurisdictions like Los Angeles prevent ICE from arresting criminal aliens in the secure confines of a jail, our officers are forced to conduct at-large arrests in the community, putting officers, the general public, and the aliens at greater risk and increasing the incidents of collateral arrests," Acting Director of ICE Tom Homan said."Fewer jail arrests mean more arrests on the street, and that also requires more resources, which is why we are forced to send additional resources to those areas to meet operational needs and officer safety. Consistent with our public safety mission, 88 percent of those arrested during this operation were convicted criminals."
Major sweeps are ongoing nationwide, in every city, and every state inside the United States of America.

One of the campaigns from the Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency is known as<a href="https://thegoldwater.com/news/8848-Operation-Safe-City-ICE-Busts-450-Illegal-Criminals-Inside-Sanctuary-Cities"> "Operation Safe City," </a>which to date has sent Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO) agents into all every state on the country netting hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens who originated from 42 total countries.
The most recent of sweeps in California had expected to net over 1000 illegals, but with politicians such as Mayor Schaaf and Governor Brown standing in the way of federal investigations, it's becoming increasingly difficult for ICE to perform their duties.
In December, Governor Brown<a href="https://thegoldwater.com/news/14610-California-Gov-Jerry-Brown-Commutes-Sentences-of-150-Illegal-Criminals-Facing-Deportation"> commuted the prison sentences </a>of 150 illegal aliens, who were already incarcerated and serving time in California's prison system.
With these counter-productive measures from the California leadership, it's enraged the citizens of the state, who feel as if the Southern California Communist policies are harming their communities and endangering lives.
As a result, there's been a push from large portions of the state to declare independence, creating the 51st State of the Union,<a href="https://thegoldwater.com/news/16296-New-California-Declares-Independence-From-The-Rest-Of-California"> "New California." </a>
While that move has yet to bear fruit, it's increasing in support with each passing day.
It's also increasingly clear that the Justice Department alongside federal prosecutors are going to have to consider bringing charges against the California politicians that hamper investigations and arrests by the Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency, now that they're beginning to put federal agents live's at risk in tipping off illegal criminals prior to raids by the agency.
The ICE agents who risk their lives in these sweeps deserve an enormous thank you from the American people and need to know that the entire nation appreciates their efforts.
Much more still needs to be done, with ICE planning to hire anywhere from 10,000-30,000 additional ICE agents in 2018, and expand their operations throughout the country, especially in sanctuary cities that defy federal law.
