James Schwab, spokesperson for the ICE Northern California headquarters located at 630 Sansome Street in San Francisco has resigned from his position. Scwab said the Trump Adminstration including Acting ICE Director James Homan and AG Jeff Sessions made false and misleading statements about the Northern California “revenge on sanctuary cities” raids by ICE at the end of February 2018.
Schwab said to the San Francisco Chronicle: ““I quit because I didn’t want to perpetuate misleading facts. I asked them to change the information. I told them that the information was wrong, they asked me to deflect, and I didn’t agree with that. Then I took some time and I quit.”
He continued, ““I didn’t feel like fabricating the truth to defend ourselves against (Schaaf’s) actions was the way to go about it,” he said. “We were never going to pick up that many people. To say that 100 percent are dangerous criminals on the street, or that those people weren’t picked up because of the misguided actions of the mayor, is just wrong.”
