Not even the courthouse safe for illegals anymore

ICE arrests 1A pro-immigration enforcement organization is praising the latest announcement by federal immigration officials who keep pushing back on "sanctuary" jurisdictions. 

Federal immigration authorities have formalized a policy to appear at federal, state and local courthouses to make arrests despite protests that they are instilling fear in illegal aliens.

The policy appears to be the latest legal fight against left-wing politicians who have publicly declared they will refuse to cooperate with federal immigration laws.

Ira Mehlman, a spokesman for the Federation for American Immigration Reform, says it appears ICE officials are declaring to California and other jurisdictions that no place is off limits.

"We will come to the courthouses," Mehlman says of ICE agents. "And if we have to we will go out into the community and find them where they happen to be living, then we are actually going to uphold the law."

A city court judge in Oregon made headlines in 2017 when she allowed a DWI suspect and illegal alien, Diddier Pecheco, to sneak out of her courtroom when it was suspected that ICE agents were waiting outside to arrest him.

It's a federal offense to "conceal, harbor, or shield from detection" illegals, but Judge Monica Herranz was cleared of any wrongdoing  even after an investigation determined she instructed the defendant to use the courtroom's backdoor to leave.

Pecheco was later caught and deported by ICE agents.     

Mehlman says advocates for illegal aliens are not just protecting illegal aliens but also illegals who are hardened criminals that must be deported.
