The San Francisco ICE spokesman James Schwab has quit following the DHS' spread of false information that "roughly 800 undocumented immigrants escaped arrest" because of the warning issued by the Oakland Mayor of the ICE raids the day prior, according to the San Francisco Chronicle. Schwab believed the number to be significantly less than what agency officials — including Jeff Sessions — were saying, and had reportedly asked for a correction.

Key quote: “I asked them to change the information. I told them that the information was wrong, they asked me to deflect, and I didn’t agree with that. Then I took some time and I quit.”
