Here's an interesting event. A former spokesman for Ice has gone public regarding being told to -LIE- about events. After a 17 year career he resigned after Oakland's Mayor warned the public about an imminent ICE raid. Since then he has been opening up to the press about what he actually did as a spokesperson for the agency and homeland security.

As a news crew was filming and interviewing James Schwab in his home, ICE agents came calling and displayed a definitely hostile attitude that (surprise) was filmed by the news crew and witnessed by family members who were there offering moral support.

Government intimidation has a long history with oppressive regimes, that include the 1950s 60s blacklisting of suspected "Communist Supporters" and actions against "activists" for civil rights and anti-Vietnam protesters. (recall Nixon's "enemies" list?) Is the Trump administration now adding the tactic to their bag of dirty tricks?

In his first television interview, former Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) spokesperson James Schwab has opened up about why he abruptly resigned in March. But his interview with CBS News' Jamie Yuccas on Wednesday was unexpectedly interrupted by agents identifying themselves as agents from the Department of Homeland Security Inspector General's Office.
