Republican Gubernatorial Candidate John Cox on Oakland Mayor’s Efforts to Protect Criminal Illegal Aliens

by ECT

The following is a press release statement by John Cox, candidate for California Governor

California – Businessman and California Republican gubernatorial candidate John Cox issued the following statement in reaction to Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf’s efforts to help illegal aliens escape ICE.

“What Mayor Schaaf did threatens the public safety of her community and all California residents. This is symptomatic of the takeover of the California Democratic Party by the extreme Left. Their rhetoric is shrill, and she, and another former Oakland mayor and now Governor Jerry Brown, are treating federal law like a modern-day George Wallace.

The primary function of government is to protect the citizenry and ensure public safety – and on that basic duty Libby Schaaf fell far short making Californians less safe.”

Mayor Schaaf should be indighted for obstructing, endangering, and interfering with law enforcement. How can anyone say the right thing is protecting a person from federal investigation? These people ICE have arrested will all have due process. Schaaf has obstructed law enforcement. She is now the criminal.

I agree, 100 percent. (Except for the spelling of indicted). If you are going to indict someone of a crime, you should learn how to spell it. If we are going to continue to point out the stupidity of the left, we need to set a better example. Now, lock her up!

Sorry Renee, sometimes my phone changes words. I should recheck for spelling. I didn’t. It was not intentional or unintentional. I think you have the intent of the comment. That is all that counts. Jail her now.

Amen!!! Instead of representing us fellow citizens extreme left only looks for votes. Only a small number of people actually agree but the liberal news twist those facts also

I do not understand what is so hard about understanding illegal, Federal Law and terms like that. If you are an illegal breaking the law it is time to pack it up. Elected officials, at all levels, who do not follow the law should be arrested also.

Ya’all do realize that press releases like this are the closest John Cox is ever going to get to the governor’s office, right?

Oakland’s mayor is a total imbecile! I think it’s succession of mayors were the same! At one time, Oakland was a great city and my great-grandparents and grandparents (on both sides) attended schools there where you didn’t have to watch your back or you’d get stabbed! Then WWII came along and the demographics changed for the worse! Today, that city resembles the “sh*thole” area President Trump should have extended to to include it.

“Demographics”- you mean black people right? Just say it

Lola Saavedra Mar 4, 2018 - 11:55 pm

You got it, Frank! They ruined Oakland which used to be a truly great city and now it’s a total sh*thole.

Frank Mar 7, 2018 - 1:21 pm

Lola your name is as Hispanic as it gets. Why do you hate your people so much? Surely there’s a traumatic event in your past you can enlighten us about.

Oakland is and has ALWAYS been a turd city for the past 40 years and more and look what the idiots of this state did, elected Jerry Brown has Governor multiple times. He could manage Oakland as Mayor and some of you retards voted for him to screw up the State. California is a mess because it is overrun by elected Democratic liberal morons are racist against American citizens.

I don’t care what country illegal immigrants come from; Africa, Asia, Europe, Far East, Mexico, or wherever. Send them home. Include DACA recipients in this group. Illegal is illegal no matter how you got here. Go home and apply to enter the US, legally, just like the individuals from the above country who are doing it the right way!

It gets WORSE.

As ICE raids ramp up, Contra Costa launches hotline for legal help, reporting ICE sightings. -East Bay Times

“The program could not have started soon enough,” Gioia said. “I’m not concerned about retaliation. I feel we’ve done the right thing. It protects families from being torn apart. Many of the individuals that ICE has gone after are not a threat to our community.”

Note to John Gioia: if it is families being torn apart, then they ALL can move back to their country where they have legal status.

Read the entire linked article here. This is an outrage and misuse of tax dollars and overreaching by the local board of Supervisors. Enough is enough.



“Unfortunately, with the hate and threats against immigrant families, many have not been able to access legal help to ensure due process rights are protected,” said Supervisor John Gioia

Another not to Gioia: you seem to have a problem saying and recognizing the word ILLEGAL. FACT: ICE isn’t after legal immigrants, quite the contrary. They are here to arrest and deport the illegal ones. It’s too bad for you if that cuts into your voter base John. You have been exposed.

I have the ICE phone number on my SPEED DIAL! Seeing ICE buses roll out makes my heart sing!

Rob Broocker Mar 6, 2018 - 5:17 pm

Get rid of illegals. BUT let the legal in by the bus,train,plane. Educated and uneducated. If they are veted and want to learn our language and live the American dream, I say let them in. We need all types of workers. There is a shortage of all kind of workers.Its going to drive the cost up of everything. We have 40 million people on welfare, another 40 million on social security. That’s a 1/4 of our possible workers. We need 50 million legal immigrants that want to work and live the American Dream. MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!

Frank Mar 7, 2018 - 1:19 pm

Yea Rob bring back slavery too! Funny how these rich guys at the top only care about federal regulations when they’re avoiding them or if it means locking brown people up. Meanwhile our economy is going to crash in the near future because of LEGAL rich Americans at the top, but yea, be distracted by Maria because she might steal chips from the store!

Rob Broocker must be looking for more cheap labor to work in his painting company. Last I heard a monkey can paint a house. Always running a scam so that you can line your own pockets, isn’t that right Broocker? Almost every problem in America can be traced to over crowding and over population. Do us all a favor and keep sniffing that paint because stupid knows no limits.
