Schaaf posted the alert to Twitter on Saturday after she said she received multiple tips that ICE was planning an operation in the Bay Area.

Speaking on "Fox and Friends", Homan added that the mayor's warning helped an estimated 800 "criminal aliens" avoid capture.

Oakland mayor Libby Schaaf looks on during an assembly at Edna Brewer Middle School about the U.S. Constitution on January 19 in Oakland, California.

Homan said the Justice Department is looking into whether Schaaf obstructed justice and said her actions allowed immigrants who have committed crimes to remain in Oakland, making the community less safe.

In ICE's four-day operation that ended Wednesday, agents arrested 232 people suspected of violating immigration laws, the agency said Thursday.

The U.S. Justice Department is reviewing a mayor's public warning ahead of an immigration raid in Northern California.

She was reluctant because she had been hacked in 2014 and was devastated when nude photos of her were spread across the internet. The actress added, "Even friends, for many years, were not as important to me as my career".

On Tuesday, before agents had wrapped up the operation, Homan had said 864 immigrants with criminal histories are still at large despite the raids that led to arrests in cities including Stockton, Sacramento, San Francisco and Bay Point.

Defenders of so-called "sanctuary" practices say they improve public safety by promoting trust among law enforcement and immigrant communities and reserving scarce police resources for other, more urgent crime-fighting needs.

Officials said that of the 232 people arrested, 180 of them "were either convicted criminals, had been issued a final order of removal and failed to depart the United States, or had been previously removed" from the country and came back illegally.

"What she did was no better than a gang lookout yelling 'Police!' when a police cruiser comes into the neighborhood, except she did it to the entire community", he said.

"I do not regret sharing this information".

Then she hit on sanctuary cities, claiming Oakland is exercising its "legal right to be a sanctuary city" and that what is actually illegal is the government "retaliating against jurisdictions that are exercising their right to have sanctuary policies".

In a statement announcing the final tallies, ICE said it was forced to go into the communities after California's sanctuary policies cut off nearly all cooperation and denied access to prisons and jails, leaving criminal migrants free.

The Fresno County arrests were two of more than 230 that ranged from the OR border to Bakersfield over four days.
