ICE Spokesman Quits Over Leaders’ Use Of ‘Misleading Facts’ To Discuss Calif. Arrests

A spokesman for Immigration and Customs Enforcement in San Francisco has resigned, citing disagreements over how to cast the actions of Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf, who warned against immigration raids last month. The raids prompted a rally outside the ICE office in San Francisco.

“I told them that the information was wrong, they asked me to deflect, and I didn’t agree with that,” said James Schwab, who resigned from his job at the Department of Homeland Security.
