California Mayor's Warning About ICE Raid Tipped Off Sex Offenders and Violent Criminals

Another illegal immigrant from Mexico, previously deported in 2014 for a conviction for armed robbery, also evaded capture.

Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf’s warning to illegal immigrants of an incoming raid by agents of U.S. Immigrations and Customs Enforcement in northern California may have led to a number of illegal immigrants with violent and sex-related convictions evading capture and deportation.

Schaaf tweeted out a warning of the raid, alerting targeted individuals to the imminent arrests, and infuriating ICE officials, who say that many more could have been caught if they hadn't been warned.

A spokesperson for ICE gave Fox News examples of some of the unsavory characters who evaded officals during the raid.

One Mexican citizen had convictions for unlawful sexual intercourse with a minor and a conviction for driving under the influence (DUI), and had been deported in 2003.

Another who evaded capture had a conviction for sodomizing a drugged victim in 2012, as well as a DUI from this year -- that Mexican citizen had also been previously deported in 2013.

Another illegal immigrant from Mexico, previously deported in 2014 for a conviction for armed robbery, also evaded capture.

While the individuals dodged authorities, it is also not clear if there was a definitive link between Schaaf’s statement and their disappearance, Fox News reports.
