Democratic Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf sent out a warning Saturday that Immigration Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents may conduct a raid in the San Francisco Bay Area.

Schaff’s message came in a tweet, and claimed she had heard from multiple sources of a possible crackdown on illegal immigrants in the area. The Democratic mayor said she believes it was her “duty and moral obligation as Mayor to give those families fair warning when that threat appears imminent.”

The Democratic Mayor also said she was sharing the information ahead of time so no one panicked and residents have time to figure out what to do if they were detained by authorities. (RELATED: ICE Arrests Nearly 200 Convicted Criminal Illegal Immigrants)
