Oakland Mayor Goes Off On The Trump Administration!

Uh Oh! The Oakland Mayor is telling the Trump Administration to talk to her hand.

“Mr. President, I am not obstructing justice. I am seeking it,” mayor Shaaf said in a WaPo article she wrote.

As reported by washingtonpost.com


Libby Schaaf is the mayor of Oakland, Calif.

When President Trump was admonishing Attorney General Jeff Sessions to charge me with obstruction of justice Wednesday, I was at Harvard University sharing how we intend to give every child from Oakland, Calif., the opportunity to attend college.

Like all cities, Oakland suffers from disparities. Our African American and Latino children finish college at vastly lower rates than whites. That achievement gap is a tragic legacy of our country’s racist history.

I sought elected office to fix that — to build an equitable city where every resident, from every neighborhood and background, has the same opportunity to thrive. I believe in the American promise of “justice for all.”

Mr. President, I am not obstructing justice. I am seeking it.

The president takes issue with a tweet I posted in February in which I notified residents of an impending raid by Immigration and Customs Enforcement in the Bay Area, including Oakland. I wanted to make sure that people were prepared, not panicked, and that they understood their legal rights.

I did this for people such as Maria Mendoza-Sanchez, who immigrated to the United States from Mexico 24 years ago . She learned English, earned a degree and worked as a nurse in the cancer ward of Oakland’s public hospital. She and her husband, Eusebio, raised four children and bought a home.

“It’s supposed to be that if you assimilate to the culture of the country, you pay taxes, you work, you graduate college, you have a better chance,” Mendoza-Sanchez told the San Francisco Chronicle.


Should the mayor be arrested for crime?

Yes, she is a terrible mayor and a criminal to boot. If the government does not give her justice, I hope some pissed citizen who has been a victim of crime from the thugs should protected gives her personal justice! We use to hang traitors, we should start again with this one.

Dang - if she has been here for 24 years, why hasn't she tried to get citizenship?

Should have been handled (one way or the other) many years ago.

You are a pure idiot, your ass should be in jail. You like to lump all immigrants in with you illegals. My grandparents were immigrants not illegals. Try separating the two. Why should ILLEGALS get free everything when the American kids of every race, creed and religion can not. Why do the American kids come out of college with big student loan to pay off, and then they have to try and get healthcare with Obamacare that have $5000-$$8000.00 deductibles. Try fighting for the right kids in this country and you would do a lot better. DACA democrats against children of America.
