ICE Defies California Sanctuary Law, Makes Arrests at Courthouse

ICE isn’t having California’s Sanctuary State laws.

Published

on

Immigration and Customs Enforcement arrested two people at a courthouse in Northern California on Tuesday, defying a ‘sanctuary state’ statue that attempts to ban immigration law enforcement from making arrests at court facilities.

The arrests were made at the Sonoma County Superior Court.

California ultimately lacks jurisdiction to dictate ICE’s terms of operation in the state. It has the ability to decline cooperation with the federal agency, but the constitutional case for dictating where the immigration enforcement agency can make arrests is dubious at best.

The agency provided a statement on the matter to Newsweek, refusing to apologize for enforcing the immigration laws of the United States, even if the state of California sees them as inconvenient.

Our officers will not have their hands tied by sanctuary rules when enforcing immigration laws to remove criminal aliens from our communities,” said San Francisco field officer David Jennings. California’s sanctuary laws “will not govern the conduct of federal officers acting pursuant to duly enacted laws passed by Congress that provide the authority to make administrative arrests of removable aliens inside the United States.”

Jennings made it clear that ICE has every legal right to enforce federal law.

A California public defender condemned the arrests, claiming that ICE’s operations would make it impossible for California’s law enforcement to maintain a working relationship with illegal immigrants.

ICE is ramping up operations to enforce immigration law in municipalities that have “sanctuary” laws. The agency is beginning a cooperative program with Customs and Border Patrol to work with one of CBP’s elite tactical units in sanctuary cities.

Up to 200 Smuggled Illegals Run Out of 18-Wheeler Truck in Texas

200 illegal aliens escaped at once.

As many as two hundred illegal aliens fled from an 18-wheeler truck in Bexar County, Texas when the vehicle stopped at a QT gas station on Thursday, presenting a considerable public safety and security threat with the majority of the aliens still unaccounted for.

Witnesses described seeing a group of migrants that amounted to well above a hundred. The migrants fled an 18-wheeler truck near IH-37 and Loop 1604 at 6PM on Thursday, just as the winter storm in Texas hit the community at full strength.

Sheriff Javier Salazar is describing the migrants as nationals of Honduras and El Salvador. He revealed that the migrants were endangered by the smugglers that had shipped them in a refrigerated truck, with the aliens in danger of suffocating inside the airtight truck compartment.

ICE’s Homeland Security Investigations urged the public to come forward with information regarding the illegals in a statement regarding the incident.

“On Feb. 18, Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) responded to a call from Bexar County Sheriff’s Office (BCSO) for assistance on a possible human smuggling case involving a semi-tractor trailer discovered in a local gas station parking lot. About 50 individuals both males and females were encountered. The undocumented immigrants, from Mexico, Guatemala and El Salvador, are being assisted by community based organizations. HSI special agents interviewed the migrants as part of a criminal investigation, which is ongoing. The status of those encountered is being reviewed. HSI urges anyone with information about this smuggling attempt to call (866) 347-2423.”

Law enforcement believes that the individuals responsible for smuggling the illegals escaped into the nearby woods with the individuals they moved into the United States. Efforts to apprehend the migrant siphon law enforcement resources during a state of emergency, when law-abiding citizens of south Texas are at risk of freezing to death inside their own homes.

The Bexar County Sheriff’s Office spoke of apprehending 50 of the illegal immigrants shortly after the smuggling event, with more than a hundred illegals still loose.

Biden’s “America Last” approach to immigration and border security has immediately spurred a renaissance in human smuggling and illegal immigration, with smugglers advertising open borders to tentative migrants. Even as illegal migration spikes to levels unseen in years, the President instead is evaluating new proposals to convert ICE into a de facto customs agency, leaving the American people without an immigration law enforcement agency.
