Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf warned residents of possible Immigration and Customs Enforcement, or ICE, raids starting “as soon as the within next 24 hours” in a press release issued Saturday night.

In the press release, Schaaf said she learned of the potential operations from multiple credible sources and urged residents to avoid panic and instead to prepare.
