Former Bush White House official John Yoo responded to the mayor of Oakland, Calif., warning illegal immigrants about a pending ICE raid.

Yoo pointed out the United States “had a civil war” when “state officers impeded federal law.”

Mayor Libby Schaaf (D) warned Saturday about the impending Immigration and Customs Enforcement raid across the Bay Area.

Tucker Carlson said that ICE officials told him 864 illegal aliens and public safety threats remain at large in the northern California city.

“It’s like telling bank robbers the cops are on the way,” Carlson said.

Yoo, who served in the Justice Department and now teaches at the University of California-Berkeley, said that “state officers cannot obstruct federal law,” noting that “we had a civil war over this.”

“You have mayors who are encouraging the subversion of federal law,” he said.

Now they are openly ignoring federal immigration law.
