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.

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.

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.

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