The communications director for the Northern California Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency quit, frustrated that he’s been told to tell the public “alternative facts.”

I’m scared,” James Schwab admitted to KTVU. “But I need to have my integrity.”

Specifically, Schwab said that was told ICE’s “Office of Public Affairs leadership” to parrot the Department of Homeland Security’s account that an unspecified number of “criminals” got away, in part, because Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf warned of the pending ICE “Keep Safe” operation. The operation began on Feb. 25 and ended up netting 232 undocumented immigrants over the next several days across the northern part of the state.

Emails and calls to ICE headquarters and the Attorney General’s Office, both in Washington, D.C., were not immediately returned. But Lori Haley, the Western Region Communications Director for ICE on Monday, told KTVU that Schwab had resigned “abruptly.”


I wonder if he’s really this young?!

- anyway, thanks for this post, laser -
