US ICE spokesman in SF resigns and slams Trump administration officials
2 young children killed as car slams into them in New York City crosswalk
A speeding car struck and killed two young children in front of their horrified pregnant mother in New York City Monday, officials said. The mom was out walking with her children, pushing one in a stroller, when a female driver in a white Volvo struck rammed into them in a crosswalk in the Park Slope section of Brooklyn around 12:40 p.m., the New York Post reported. The victims were 2 and 4, according to reports.“The kids were run straight over, and the driver tried to get away and hit a car,’’ a witness who declined to give his name told the paper. “I don’t even want to think about this.
James Schwab, a spokesman for the San Francisco Division of Immigration and Customs Enforcement, has resigned, citing what he says are falsehoods being spread by members of the Trump administration including Attorney General Jeff Sessions.
White House clarifies Trump-North Korea 'call'
<p>The White House said Monday that Donald Trump had been referring to a call with South Korea's leader when he appeared to suggest a landmark direct contact with the nuclear North.</p>Trump raised eyebrows at a Washington media dinner on Saturday when he said "they, by the way, called up a couple of days ago and said 'we would like to talk.
"I just couldn't bear the burden -- continuing on as a representative of the agency and charged with upholding integrity, knowing that information was false," he told CNN on Monday.
Schwab cited Acting Director Tom Homan and Attorney General Jeff Sessions as being the purveyors of misleading and inaccurate information, following Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf's controversial
ICE released aabout the operations in Northern California in which Homan stated that "864 criminal aliens and public safety threats remain at large in the community, and I have to believe that some of them were able to elude us thanks to the mayor's irresponsible decision."
Out in Africa? Tillerson trip leaves hosts nonplussed
<p>From the outset, Rex Tillerson's first trip to Africa looked half-hearted and token, but with the hindsight knowledge that the U.S. Secretary of State was fired just two days in, it's his African hosts who must be wondering why they bothered.</p>Beyond $533 million in humanitarian aid and some pat remarks about security and not getting too cosy with China, Tillerson's main aim appeared to be clearing up the mess left by President Donald Trump's reported dismissal of some African nations as "shithole countries". Trump later denied making the comment.
Sessions also repeated a similar estimate in his remarks while visiting Sacramento last week.
"Those are 800 wanted criminals that are now at large in that community -- 800 wanted criminals that ICE will now have to pursue with more difficulty in more dangerous situations, all because of one mayor's irresponsible action," Sessions had said.
Schwab said he took issue with their characterization.
"Director Homan and the Attorney General said there were 800 people at large and free to roam because of the actions of the Oakland Mayor," he told CNN. "Personally I think her actions were misguided and not responsible. I think she could have had other options. But to blame her for 800 dangerous people out there is just false."
"It's a false statement because we never pick up 100% of our targets. And to say they're a type of dangerous criminal is also misleading."
Schwab said he brought up his concerns to ICE leadership and was told to "deflect to previous statements. Even though those previous statements did not clarify the wrong information."
"I've never been in this situation in 16 almost 17 years in government where someone asked me to deflect when we absolutely knew something was awry -- when the data was not correct" he said.
Schwab also said he is a registered Democrat, but has been a loyal federal servant, regardless of which party is in power.
CNN has reached out to ICE in Washington and the Department of Justice for comment.
