Ex-spokesman says ICE lies to the public

A former ICE spokesman who quit in March went on TV Thursday to tell the public the agency lies.

“James Schwab told CBS News on Wednesday that he became ‘extremely uncomfortable’ in February when Attorney General Jeff Sessions made false statements about immigration raids in Oakland, California. ‘They failed to correct it, it’s a flat-out lie,’ Schwab said. ‘They know it’s a lie. It was just shocking to me that no one wanted to fix that.’

Schwab said he “could not fathom staying at an organization that was OK with lying to the American public.”

He said a claim by AG Jeff Sessions and ICE officials that Oakland’s mayor enabled hundreds of illegals to escape arrest by tipping them off about imminent ICE raids is “completely false.” Schwab also accused ICE and DHS, its parent agency, of trying to intimidate him into silence.
