Feds Planning Massive San Francisco Bay Area Immigration Raid

So much for state's rights, never mind local rights, with every passing day the Trump administration takes on the look of the horrific Lincoln administration.

The San Francisco Chronicle reports the union is planning an attack:
U.S. immigration officials have begun preparing for a major sweep in San Francisco and other Northern California cities in which federal officers would look to arrest more than 1,500 undocumented people while sending a message that immigration policy will be enforced in the sanctuary state, according to a source familiar with the operation.

Officials at Immigration and Customs Enforcement, known as ICE, declined to comment Tuesday on plans for the operation.

The campaign, centered in the Bay Area, could happen within weeks, and is expected to become the biggest enforcement action of its kind under President Trump, said the source, who requested anonymity because the plans have not been made public...

The sweep would represent the first large-scale effort to target the region since Gov. Jerry Brown in October signed legislation enacting statewide sanctuary laws...

Acting ICE Director Thomas Homan slammed Brown for signing SB54, which he said undermined public safety, and signaled he was prepared to take action.

He said at the time that the federal government would not allow California to be “a sanctuary state for illegal aliens” and would have no choice but to “conduct at-large arrests in local neighborhoods and at worksites, which will inevitably result in additional collateral arrests, instead of focusing on arrests at jails and prisons where transfers are safer for ICE officers and the community.”

Early this month, Homan told Fox News that “California better hold on tight.” He said that if local politicians “don’t want to protect their communities, then ICE will.”


  1. --- He said that if local politicians “don’t want to protect their communities, then ICE will.” ---

    That statement leaves no question that the Federales care nothing about the safety of any community and merely want to make a show of strength to let the state know that the 10 Amendment is dead letter.

  2. The states need to be willing to do whatever it takes to secure their sovereignty (such as it is today). Obviously refusing to cooperate with the Feds and otherwise refusing to comply in any way, is the State Nullification route, which I would heartily endorse. They also need to utilize Interposition, and pass laws criminalizing any acts that facilitate, assist or carry-out these nefarious, federal laws. How much headway would ICE make, if state and local police were ready to arrest ICE agents for breaking state law (law which criminalized the apprehending of people on the basis of immigration violations)---? Or if all detention centers, prisons, jails, etc. were withdrawn from being used by federal agents for the purpose of immigration round-ups, etc.--? Imagine zero cooperation by state and local police. Imagine immigration judges under threat of arrest, if through their rulings they facilitate or constructively endorse such immigration dragnets, round-ups and predations against suspected immigrants. Same with any government workers---state or federal---who aid and abet the Feds in carrying out these intrusions into state sovereignty.
    Things could get very ugly very soon, and that might be necessary to send the Feds a strong message.

    1. Funny these same states won't say states rights when it comes to the 2nd Amendment.

  3. Awesome! Thank you DT!

    Hey Franco, when are you moving to Africa or Haiti? I'm willing to bet you are a die hard racist.

    This needs to be done. I wish Trump would deport or encourage the removal of millions of illegal immigrants. More white Europeans need to come here.

    1. Let's deport your miserable, pathetic statist self! Why do you hate so much? Who hurt you in your life so terribly? ... Are you 600 lbs living in your abusive step-father's basement? You poor, sad soul

  4. I support State's Rights and federalism 100%. That said, Trump has a weapon that even libertarians could agree with. He can just say the all EBT card transactions in CA will be declined from an effective date of [say 10 days] until he is convinced that the rolls are purged from illegal alien freeloaders. Then we will see how fast things change.
