Justin Berton, a spokesman for Schaaf, said the mayor's office is unaware of any review and declined to comment further.

We suggested that it is more likely that the Justice Department will increase its efforts to enforce 8 U.S.C. 1373 - "Communication between government agencies and the Immigration and Naturalization Service".

The mayor has repeatedly defended her actions, saying Wednesday that she was not tipped off by "official sources" and that she didn't reveal specific locations.

She has won praise from other officials in California. "I am hopeful that it gave comfort and security to many people in Oakland". He also said federal authorities were examining her actions.

The U.S. Justice Department is reviewing Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf's warning about Immigration and Customs Enforcement raids in the Bay Area, according to White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders, CBS San Francisco reports.

More than 100 of the people arrested had criminal records, including convictions for child sex crimes, weapons charges and assault, ICE said. He blamed Schaaf in part. However, said Homan, "There's 800 that we are unable to locate because of that warning, so that community is a lot less safe than it would have been". She also said she checked with legal counsel before making the announcement last Saturday night and did not believe she was obstructing justice. Homan said, "What [Schaaf] did is no better than a gang lookout yelling "police" when a police cruiser comes in the neighborhood, except she did it to a whole community".

She also claims that USOC concealed its knowledge of Nassar's offenses despite that they were made aware of them as early as 2015. Raisman still suffers from "depression, anxiety and fear" stemming from her abuse, her lawsuit said.

"They can continue the political debate", Loyola Law School professor Laurie Levenson told the newspaper. Jerry Brown down to local mayors have resisted a Trump administration immigration crackdown that they contend is arbitrarily hauling in otherwise law-abiding people and splitting up families that include US -born children.

Schaaf and her supporters say she did the right thing.

"It was my intention that one mother, or one father, would use the information to help keep their family together", Schaaf added.

"The Trump Administration's raids were a shocking abuse of law enforcement power", she said.

Oakland, like many other California municipalities, considers itself a 'Sanctuary City, ' often shielding illegal immigrants and undocumented workers from federal authorities and border patrol agents.

Immigration detainers lodged against them have been "repeatedly ignored", Schwab said.
