Oakland City Council To End All Cooperation with ICE
Yet another California city fights back against Trump's aggressive federal government.
On Tuesday, the Oakland City Council vote on a resolution to formally end all law enforcement cooperation with Immigration and Customs Enforcement and its parent agency Homeland Security Investigations.
The resolution is authored by council members Desley Brooks, Rebecca Kaplan and Noel Gallo and was endorsed unanimously by the board's Public Safety committee on January 9th.
Oakland mayor Libby Schaaf stated on November 22 to KTVU that she agreed with the strengthening of the City's 1986 sanctuary resolution to prohibit all cooperation saying: “Oakland is a proud city of immigrants. We must stand united and protect our most vulnerable communities," reports the Independent East Bay.
