VIDEO: LA Mayor, Police Chief Give Immigrants Tips How To Avoid Capture By ICE

Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti teamed up with Police Chief Michael Moore to offer tips for worried illegal immigrants.

Los Angeles, CA – Politicians and law enforcement in Los Angeles are so concerned about keeping illegal immigrants away from U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) that they made an instructional video with tips on how to avoid getting caught (video below).

Los Angeles Police Chief Michael Moore and Mayor Eric Garcetti posted the inflammatory video in response to President Donald Trump’s announcement that he is sending federal SWAT teams to so-called “sanctuary cities” to help grab up wanted criminals.

The specially trained tactical units known as BORTAC are going to cities that have refused to cooperate with federal immigration authorities to assist ICE officers already there, The New York Times reported.

Chicago, New York, Atlanta, Houston, Boston, New Orleans, Detroit, Newark, New Jersey, San Francisco, and Los Angeles are all on the target list.

“As we have noted for years, in jurisdictions where we are not allowed to assume custody of aliens from jails, our officers are forced to make at-large arrests of criminal aliens who have been released into communities,” acting ICE Director Matthew T. Albence said in a statement. “When sanctuary cities release these criminals back to the street, it increases the occurrence of preventable crimes, and more importantly, preventable victims.”

Los Angeles County Sheriff Alex Villanueva was quick to post his objection to the move on social media on Friday.

“I strongly oppose this irresponsible deployment of federal SWAT agents in @CountyofLA for civil immigration enforcement,” Sheriff Villanueva captioned a statement he posted on Twitter.

Not to be outdone by the county, the Los Angeles mayor was quick to respond to the threat by the Trump Administration with a video of him and his police chief offering illegal immigrants tips on how to deal with police.

Garcetti called the helpful video released on Twitter on Valentine’s Day “being a good neighbor.”

“No matter their immigration status, I want every Angeleno to know their rights and how to exercise them,” the mayor said at the start of the video. “Remember, you have the right to remain silent. You don’t have to open your door to an ICE agent who doesn’t have a warrant signed by a judge.”

“You have the right to speak to a lawyer before signing any documents or speaking to law enforcement,” Garcetti continued with the police chief at his side. “And if you need help finding any attorney, you can call 311 and learn more about our Justice Fund and other resources that offer legal support. And whenever possible, keep a record of everything that happens. Take note of an officer’s name and badge number, of when and where you are being questions so you can use that information in your own defense.”

“And most importantly, I want you to know you do not need to be afraid,” the mayor added. “Your city is on your side. And rest assured, here in Los Angeles, we are not coordinating with ICE.”

At that point, Chief Moore jumped in to reinforce what the mayor had said and promise citizens of Los Angeles that police would not assist ICE in the gang-infested city.

“Our police force does not do the job of federal law enforcement,” the chief said. “So I want to reiterate what the mayor just said. The Los Angeles Police Department is not assisting ICE in any way. We will not enforce immigration laws that are civil in nature and that fall under the jurisdiction of the federal government.”

“Immigration is a federal matter. Safety is a police matter,” he continued. “And we’re not going to mix those two. Everything we do is focused on what’s best for the security and safety of all Angelenos and consistent with our commitment to constitutional policing and deepening our community partnership.”

“Simply put, we are here to protect and serve all the people of Los Angeles, regardless of their immigration status,” Chief Moore said.

Officials said that BORTAC units deployed will be providing backup to local ICE officers and offering a show of force when necessary, The New York Times reported.

They said the goal is to increase arrests by 35 percent in “sanctuary cities.”

Many ICE agents have said their job has become very difficult because of immigrant advocacy organizations and activists, The New York Times reported.

If being stupid were a crime, these boneheads would already be in jail. Sadly it isn't a crime.

I know it would be a tough thing to prove, but I would start with conspiracy and aiding and abetting, then scour the Federal code for more. This has to stop. One provable case is all we need. Like the "judge" that helped an illegal escape out the back of the courthouse, she and her bailiff have been charged. I have no idea what he was thinking. If a judge had told me to do that I would have refused.

I would prefer federal charges, easier to prove and a better sentencing scheme!

What a simpleton, a stupid poor excuse of a Police Chief. I expect it from a SJW mental defective mayor but a police chief? No way in hell could I keep working for stupids like these fools. No amount of money is worth my Pride as a Real American!

Sanctuary, my ass! Criminals protecting criminals. Aiding and abetting is still a crime, yet our state government encourages it. Time to take down the Democratic 'leadership' in these so called Sanctuary cities and states.

Trump’s edict is to arrest illegal aliens that are wanted for criminal activity other than being here illegally. So the chief and mayor sound like they’re telling these criminals to surrender if there’s a warrant which is fine. They can get an attorney for free which is BS. It sounds like the police and mayor and not saying anything of value other than they’re breaking federal laws and should be arrested themselves.

Fun sitting back and watching Calif. implode. People are fleeing the state by the hundreds. All that’ll be left are illegals and homeless. And the poor police that’ll be stuck with the mess.

I hope the city burns and is a ghost town filled with criminals and homeless people. Then we'll see what they think they can do to fix the problems they have created.

Trump should build a wall around the sanctuary city's and they can fill it with all the pedophiles and and criminals and celebrities.. one big happy family!! Lol

"“I strongly oppose this irresponsible deployment of federal SWAT agents in @CountyofLA for civil immigration enforcement,” Sheriff Villanueva" What's irresponsible is ignoring the crimes committed by many of these illegals ahead of your responsibility to protect law abiding, tax paying citizens from people who entered this country illegally. Do your job!

When I read the responses from these politicians (yes the sheriff and chief are nothing more than dirty politicians) I can't help but think they are more concerned about those who entered this country illegally than they are law abiding citizens. There are numerous examples of horrific crimes committed by these people from cities across the country that could have been prevented had they cooperated with ICE. How do they manage to sleep at night. I also wonder what their reaction would be if they were personally affected by these decisions. How would they feel if a loved one was murdered or raped by someone they refused to turn over to the feds?

Hey Chief, you're a piece of shit. I expect this kind of crap from a politician, but not from someone sworn to uphold the law. I bet your people wouldn't piss down your throat if your guts were on fire. Sleep well snowflake.

Hindsight is 20/20 and based on ICE's response those idiots have egg on their face and are sputtering against a power greater than their own.

Sanctuary City = criminals (violators of Federal law and active obstructors of the same) protecting repeated criminal offenders (bypassed LEGAL immigration channels by violating our borders then committed ADDITIONAL crimes later on).

I hope ICE gets rid of all the criminal aliens and that the voters get rid of the criminal politicians!

They are not "Angelenos" because they are not in the US legally. His words hold no merit and his releasing a video on how to avoid arrest is and should be treated as criminal.

The chief and the mayor should be arrested for aiding and abetting criminals.

Two more POS liberal asshats in Commiefornia. Maybe the feds should arrest them for impeding investigations and enforcement of Federal laws? I suppose these idiots would still feel the same if their family were attacked or killed by illegals...you just can't fix stupid!!

Worthless POSs. They make a mockery of those badges and law enforcement. ALL of them violate their oaths of offices by NOT upholding the Constitution and the laws of this country. They absolutely should be arrested and charged with not only corruption but obstruction of justice for putting out videos etc to help criminals. ALL undocumented aliens are in fact criminals-there is no other description.

It breaks my heart to see POLICE CHIEF, head of the department, one of the largest departments in the country turn into a sleazy politician, damn his own men at risk! LAPD used to be the bright light in Law Enforcement, now turned into just another department turned lawless, without consideration or care for the safety of the citizens they swore to protect. CITIZENS, not foreign invaders! Chief shame on you, you insult the LAPD's forefathers, the rules of cop to cop, back to back cover, you shameless sellout! Anyone who is injured or killed by one of your protected invaders should sue you personally!

Chief, think back to your rookie year, when you were a real cop. When you stood with your brothers and sisters, and would take a bullet to protect them, the one next to you. NOW, that you are a Chief, brainwashed by college professors whose only risks is choking on lunch in the break room. If that version of you saw what you have become now, you WILL NOT SLEEP TONIGHT OR ANY NIGHT. You are a now the enemy who participates in putting other cops in danger, AND YOU DON'T GIVE A DAMN! SLEEP WELL OK?

Totally expected BS from mayor yoga pants, but I have no idea how a sworn officer can stand there and tell criminals how to avoid law enforcement! Parts of this country have completely run off the rails 😞

I can not understand for the life of me what is wrong with the leaders in California. Then you have a police chief and a sheriff that is so full of it that it’s not even funny. Across this country when you are sworn into a position part of your oath is upholding the Constitution and for this sheriff to say they are not here to enforce federal laws is beyond comprehension. These law enforcement officers are blatantly disregarding federal law and not assistOmg federal law enforcement officers. It’s absolutely time that US Attorney start indicting these officials to show them all that Federal is above state and local law.
The LA County Sheriff says they are to serve and protect the citizens, hat a crock of sh*t. Look who commits a portion of crimes in there jurisdictions, that’s right illegal immigrants. They could have already been deported but because these officials decided to lie in the oath of office a innocent victim paid the price for ignorance.

Really, OMG I never thought I would see the day. Maybe those two assholes need to remember they serve us...and were sworn to uphold the laws of the US Constitution. The on AH should be voted out and the other should be relieved of his command, since he is an At Will employee. Both should be charged with aiding and abetting along with what ever other Federal crimes we can charge them with. I would have hated to serve under that liberal POS. Thank God for his troops his command staff and line supervisors actually run that department. Garcetti is Bloombergs lil brother and Moore is just the lil boy that got picked on in school. Now he has a badge and a gun, to be someone! NUFF Said.
