Homan added on Fox News' "Fox & Friends" that the Department of Justice is "reviewing" whether Schaaf broke any laws.

The sweep became controversial after Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf put out a warning saying she had learned ICE was conduction an operation, and telling illegal immigrants to take necessary steps. It's unclear exactly what that review entails.

Of the total arrests, 180 were either convicted criminals, were issued a final order of removal, failed to leave the USA, or previously were deported and returned to the US illegally, according to a statement from ICE.

Since Sunday, 232 individuals who violated federal immigration laws were arrested in the San Francisco Bay Area, Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) said in a news release Thursday.

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents arrested more than 200 suspected undocumented immigrants in raids over four days in California, the agency announced Thursday. Over the same time period, the network received more than 350 calls from people-some who had a relative detained, others who just wanted to know about a rumor of ICE activity in their neighborhood.

Schaaf has defended her actions saying it was her "duty and moral obligation as Mayor to give those families fair warning when that threat appears imminent".

Ledecka who started her quest for gold , racing from 26th place in the super-G, stunned the crowd crowd to win by 0.01 seconds. I thought, "OK, now it's weird". "Yeah, you'll have to get used to it", she said with a laugh.

Schaaf and her supporters say she did the right thing.

Schaaf said in a tweet Tuesday that she did not regret her decision to share information regarding ICE operations.

"Sanctuary jurisdictions like San Francisco and Oakland shield risky criminal aliens from federal law enforcement at the expense of public safety", Homan said.

The action was focused on what the agency refers to as the San Francisco area of responsibility that extends from the Bakersfield area north to the OR border.

Last weekend's roundup and arrest of 150 illegal aliens in Northern California in "Operation Keep Safe" and Homan's strongly worded condemnation of Schaaf indicates that ICE is not yet ready to pack up its bags and leave the Golden State - despite the lack of cooperation from the state's officials, from Governor Brown on down. Recent legislation has negatively impacted ICE operations in California by almost eliminating all cooperation and communication with our law enforcement partners in the state by prohibiting local law enforcement from contracting with the federal government to house detainees. "We believe our community is safer when families stay together". "ICE will also likely have to detain individuals arrested in California in detention facilities outside of the state, far from any family they may have in California".
