The Jewish mayor of Oakland, California has defended her decision to warn the community in advance of an Immigration and Customs Enforcement raid in Northern California. [...] The tip-off allowed some 800 illegal immigrants to escape arrest, Thomas Homan, ICE’s acting director, told Fox & Friends without giving details. He said her warning was “beyond the pale” and compared her to a gang lookout who tells people when a police car is arriving.
