The Department of Justice should prosecute Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf with federal crimes for her shielding of illegal aliens with “sanctuary city” policies, said Don Rosenberg, president of Advocates for Victims of Illegal Alien Crimes (AVIAC), in a Monday interview on SiriusXM’s Breitbart News Tonight with co-hosts Rebecca Mansour and Joel Pollak.

Rosenberg’s 25-year-old son Drew was killed while returning home from law school in San Francisco, California, when he was struck by a negligently driving illegal alien in 2010.

“[Libby Schaaf] should be immediately prosecuted for obstruction of justice and a violation of federal law title 8 U.S. Code § 1324,” said Rosenberg. “This woman has committed a felony. … The penalty for what she did is a minimum five-year sentence.”

Schaaf’s recent warning to illegal aliens about pending ICE enforcement actions in Oakland could expose her to federal prosecution, said Rosenberg. “If [Libby Schaaf’s] alerting these people makes one of those people run out of town, hide, do whatever, and ICE can’t pick them up, if that person then commits a crime, she could go to jail for 20 years. If that person kills somebody, she could go to jail for life.”

“I want to know where the Justice Department is,” said Rosenberg. “I want to know why they haven’t already filed charges against [Libby Schaaf]. And it’s really not just her. … Every time a mayor get on TV [and] tells people, ‘Come here. I’ll protect you’ — which pretty much they’re all doing — that’s a felony. I’m more angry at the Justice Department than I am [at Schaaf].”

The Justice Department is failing to pursue lawless city and state officials openly violating federal immigration law, said Rosenberg. “Bill de Blasio, Rahm Emanuel … Eric Garcetti,” he said. “All these guys have violated federal law, and the DOJ is doing nothing about it.”

Federal prosecution of Schaaf would deter other local and state officials from violating and nullifying federal immigration law, said Rosenberg. “If you want to stop this nonsense, drag her ass into jail and prosecute her, and the rest of these people will stop. Right now, there’s no skin off their back for what they’re doing.”

Via 8 U.S. Code § 1324, it is a felony to knowingly or recklessly conceal, harbor, or shield an illegal alien from detection. It is also a felony to knowingly or recklessly induce aliens to unlawfully come to, enter, or reside in the country.

The killer of Rosenberg’s son was shielded from deportation via Temporary Protected Status (TPS), a federal designation for countries deemed too dangerous for its nationals to return to. As a Honduran national who illegally entered America in 1999, he applied for and received TPS protection in 2000. Honduras was listed as a TPS country in 1999 due to a hurricane and remains listed today.

“[TPS] is very protective but not the least bit temporary,” quipped Rosenberg.

Rosenberg’s son’s killer had “been caught driving without a license” prior to the 2010 killing, but he was released via California’s policy at the time, Rosenberg said.

“Instead of prosecuting [my son’s killer], San Francisco just [did] what their policy was,” said Rosenberg. “If you were here illegally — and back then [an illegal alien] couldn’t get a driver’s license — they just let you go. They didn’t prosecute. So what did he do? He just kept driving.”

Rosenberg blamed “sanctuary” policies for enabling his son’s killer to remain in the country, noting that tens of thousands of other Americans had been harmed by crimes committed by illegal aliens shielded by such policies.

“Sanctuary policy allowed [my son’s killer] to do what he did,” said Rosenberg. “Had he been prosecuted and gotten convicted, he probably wouldn’t have driven again because under TPS, two misdemeanors, and you’ll be deported,” said Rosenberg. “So he would’ve faced deportation if he would’ve been caught driving without a license one more time, but if there’s no penalty, you’ll do whatever it is you want to do.”

The justice system mistreats the families of victims of crimes committed by illegal aliens, said Rosenberg, reflecting on his experiences in pursuing justice following the killing of his son.

State prosecutors had no interest in convicting his son’s killer, said Rosenberg. The district attorney’s office, he said, “wanted to blow the case off as fast as they could. They wanted a plea bargain and to be done with it. My wife and I said, ‘Absolutely not.’ They were very uncooperative. They withheld evidence. They lied to us. This is the same guy that did the Kate Steinle case. No interest on their part — and there wasn’t in [the Kate Steinle case], either — to get a conviction.”

Rosenberg said that during a break in legal proceedings at the courthouse, a woman managing the assistant district attorneys told him and his wife to “get over it.”

Abusive treatment of American citizens by the legal system is standard fare across the country when dealing with crimes committed by illegal aliens, said Rosenberg, drawing on his interactions with hundreds of such people. Illegal aliens, conversely, are treated sympathetically within the justice system.

“What I found out after talking … to hundreds of other people who had gone through this: My case was not the exception; it was the rule. People are treated like crap. We’re treated as the criminals, and these people are like, ‘How dare you want us to prosecute this person? He’s just trying to survive.’ That’s just the way it is–and even in conservative areas. … I’ve talked to people in Tennessee, in Kentucky, in Texas — very conservative states, and it’s the same thing.

In January, Schaaf vowed to face jail time in an effort to shield illegal aliens from facing America’s illegal immigration laws.

California’s violation of federal law and defiance of the federal government share parallels with the Confederacy, said Mansour and Pollak.

“[Libby Schaaf] has gone full-Confederate, basically,” said Mansour. “She has had her firing on Fort Sumter moment where she’s just basically at war with the federal government. This time, she’s decided that she’s not going to abide by any laws having to do with our Immigration and Customs Enforcement.”

“California now, in a sense, is waving the Confederate flag against Donald Trump and the federal government and putting communities at risk,” said Pollak.

AVIAC is an organization run by people who have lost family members to crimes committed by illegal aliens, raising awareness of the impacts of illegal immigration.



Nikki Haley Breaks with Trump: ‘We Shouldn’t Have Followed Him, and We Shouldn’t Have Listened to Him’



Nikki Haley, former U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, believes that former President Donald Trump “let us down.”

Haley’s remarks come as the former president’s legal team prepares to present its defense of Trump during his second impeachment trial in the Senate.

In a Politico interview published Friday, Haley, former South Carolina governor, said that “we shouldn’t have followed” Trump.

“We need to acknowledge he let us down,” she said in an extensive profile. “He went down a path he shouldn’t have, and we shouldn’t have followed him, and we shouldn’t have listened to him. And we can’t let that ever happen again.”

She also told the outlet that she has not spoken to Trump since the Jan. 6 riots at the U.S. Capitol, and takes issue with his remarks condemning former Vice President Mike Pence’s refusal to reject the Electoral College vote.

“When I tell you I’m angry, it’s an understatement,” she expressed. “I am so disappointed in the fact that [despite] the loyalty and friendship he had with Mike Pence, that he would do that to him. Like, I’m disgusted by it.”

The former ambassador, who many people are speculating may run for the White House in 2024, also added that Trump will never accept the results of the 2020 presidential election.

“There’s nothing that you’re ever going to do that’s going to make him feel like he legitimately lost the election,” she explained. “He’s got a big bully pulpit. He should be responsible with it.”

Haley also warned that many people still love the former president and will not stop supporting him just because he is out of office.

“I know how much people love Donald Trump,” she admitted. “I know it. I feel it. Whether it’s an RNC room or social media or talking to donors, I can tell you that the love they have for him is still very strong. That’s not going to just fall to the wayside. Nor do I think the Republican Party is going to go back to the way it was before Donald Trump. I don’t think it should.”

Haley added that people, instead, should “take the good that he built, leave the bad that he did, and get back to a place where we can be a good, valuable, effective party.”

“[I]t’s bigger than the party,” she insisted. “I hope our country can come together and figure out how we pull this back.”

Referring to Haley’s possible 2024 ambitions, Politico’s Tim Alberta wrote, “Since last fall, I’ve spent nearly six hours talking with Haley on-the-record. I’ve also spoken with nearly 70 people who know her: friends, associates, donors, staffers, former colleagues. From those conversations, two things are clear. First, Nikki Haley is going to run for president in 2024. Second, she doesn’t know which Nikki Haley will be on the ballot.”

Haley also said that she didn’t believe Trump had a chance of winning in a 2024 election scenario.

“I don’t think he can,” she admitted. “He’s fallen so far.”

“I think his business is suffering at this point,” she added. “I think he’s lost any sort of political viability he was going to have. I think he’s lost his social media, which meant the world to him. I mean, I think he’s lost the things that really could have kept him moving.”

The montage went on for 13 minutes. (The video montage starts at 7:10 timeframe.)

WATCH: Trump Attorneys Destroy House Managers on Lying to American Public and Using Manipulated Tweet as Evidence



President Trump’s defense team took the floor of the US Senate on Friday in defense of President Trump in the Senate impeachment trial.

Trump Attorney David Schoen absolutely destroyed the House Managers when he took to the floor of the US Senate.

At one point Schoen played video of the Democrat lawmakers lying about a Trump tweet.

House Impeachment Manager Eric Swalwell gave a riveting performance on Wednesday reading off Trump’s tweets with emotional appeal.

During this theatrical performance, Swalwell read off a Trump retweet by Jennifer Lynn Lawrence.

But there was one problem with the tweet. It was photoshopped.

Jennifer Lynn Lawrence has never been verified by Twitter. Democrats faked that to make it look more important.

On Friday Trump Attorney David Schoen destroyed Democrats for lying about this to the American public.

White House Suspends Deputy Press Secretary For Allegedly Sexually Harassing, Threatening Reporter



The White House announced on Friday that it was suspending Deputy Press Secretary TJ Ducklo after a report surfaced alleging that he sexually harassed and threatened a female reporter who was getting ready to publish a report revealing that he was dating a reporter who had previously been tasked with covering Democrat Joe Biden.

“The confrontation began on Inauguration Day, January 20, after [Politico reporter Tara] Palmeri, a coauthor of Politico’s Playbook, contacted [Axios political reporter Alexi] McCammond for comment while one of her male colleagues left a message for Ducklo,” Vanity Fair reported. “Ducklo subsequently called a Playbook editor to object to the story, but was told to call the Playbook reporters with his concerns. But instead of calling the male reporter who initially contacted him, Ducklo tried to intimidate Palmeri by phone in an effort to kill the story. ‘I will destroy you,’ Ducklo told her, according to the sources, adding that he would ruin her reputation if she published it.”

“During the off-the-record call, Ducklo made derogatory and misogynistic comments, accusing Palmeri of only reporting on his relationship—which, due to the ethics questions that factor into the relationship between a journalist and White House official, falls under the purview of her reporting beat—because she was ‘jealous’ that an unidentified man in the past had ‘wanted to f***’ McCammond ‘and not you,’” the report added. “Ducklo also accused Palmeri of being ‘jealous’ of his relationship with McCammond.”

White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki said following the report that Ducklo has been suspended for a week over the incident.

“TJ Ducklo has apologized to the reporter, with whom he had a heated conversation about his personal life,” Psaki wrote on Twitter. “He is the first to acknowledge this is not the standard of behavior set out by the President.”

“In addition to his initial apology, he has sent the reporter a personal note expressing his profound regret,” she continued. “With the approval of the White House Chief of Staff, he has been placed on a one-week suspension without pay. In addition, when he returns, he will no longer be assigned to work with any reporters at Politico.”

Reporters called out the administration over the incident, highlighting how the Trump administration did not treat reporters that way as well as issues with the timeline of events with regard to the White House taking action to address the incident.

“The Vanity Fair piece indicates that Politico editors reached to the WH after the incident first occurred and the WH acknowledged it was inappropriate,” Spectator editor Amber Athey wrote on Twitter. “But they clearly didn’t have any interest in disciplining Ducklo until his behavior was made public.”

New York Magazine reporter Olivia Nuzzi wrote on Twitter: “I covered Donald Trump for 6 years. It is saying something that this behavior — from a Biden official — shocks me.”

Grabien founder Tom Elliott highlighted the following remarks that Biden made a few weeks ago: “If you’re ever working with me and I hear you treat another colleague with disrespect, talk down to someone, I promise you I will fire you on the spot, on the spot. No if, ands, or buts. Everybody — everybody is entitled to be treated with decency & dignity.”

CNN anchor Jake Tapper responded to the quote, writing: “Standards that are not upheld are not standards. They’re lies.”
