San José Mayor Sam Liccardo Condemns Scheduled ICE Activity: “We Reject This Administration’s Politics of Fear”
San Jose, Calif. - The following is a statement from Mayor Liccardo regarding this weekend’s scheduled ICE Activity in the San Francisco Bay Area:
“San José rejects the Trump Administration’s politics of fear and exclusion, which thrives on tearing our families apart. It’s critical for every San Joséan—regardless of immigration status— to know they have rights, and that the San José Police Department will not participate in any ICE investigation or enforcement activity.
I encourage our community to inform themselves about their rights and remain vigilant for ICE agents entering a home or business without consent or a valid warrant. Please report ICE activity locations, description of ICE vehicles, badge numbers, photos, or other information to the Rapid Response Network at (408) 290-1144, so that we can gather the information, and where appropriate, take legal action to protect our community."
