Judge Stops Immigration Enforcement

Judge Stops Immigration Enforcement

(AbsoluteNews.com) – For years, activists have complained about immigration enforcement inside courthouses. Brooklyn District Attorney Eric Gonzalez filed a lawsuit against ICE, saying the agency’s policy was leading to witness intimidation and other problems. A federal judge agreed.

On June 10, US District Judge Jed S. Rakoff issued an order blocking ICE from enforcing immigration laws in New York courthouses. The agency will no longer be allowed to detain illegals who are in the buildings. New York Attorney General Letitia James released a statement celebrating the ruling.

ICE didn’t respond to the ruling, however, they have long said it’s safer for everyone involved if they detain aliens in controlled situations. In 2017, California complained about the arrests and the Departments of Homeland Security and Justice said the practice would continue because it’s safer for everyone involved.

It’s likely the agency will challenge the latest ruling.
