RULE OF LAW: Illegal Aliens Detained by ICE After Massachusetts Court Appearances

A pair of illegal aliens were nabbed outside separate Suffolk County, Mass. courts last week, despite the fact that a lawless district attorney has filed a federal lawsuit to keep the law enforcement entity out of courthouses.

“Elmer Hernandez-Montes was taken into custody by Immigration and Customs Enforcement officers after reporting to Chelsea District Court,” according to The Boston Herald. 

John Mohan of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) spoke with The Herald. 

“Hernandez-Montes is a citizen of El Salvador who illegally re-entered the United States after having been removed three times. He was arrested at the Chelsea District Court. ICE will seek his removal following the resolution of the local criminal charges against him,” he said.

The illegal alien has a lengthy criminal history, which includes “eight arraignments for assault and battery with a dangerous weapon, breaking and entering and trespassing.”

DA Rachael Rollins filed a lawsuit to keep ICE out of courthouses on the same day as the arrests, but ICE continued to do its job. It arrested another El Salvadoran national on the same day.

“Jose Hernandez Rodriguez, a citizen of El Salvador, was also arrested Monday in East Boston District Court,” according to the report. “Rodriguez is a member of the ruthless MS-13 gang, according to ICE, and he was arrested by Boston police for unlawfully carrying a dangerous weapon.”

Last week, a Massachusetts judge was indicted for helping an illegal alien escape ICE custody after an appearance in her courtroom.

Big League Politics reported:

A Massachusetts judge left the courtroom in tears Thursday after being indicted for obstruction of justice stemming from an incident during which she allegedly helped an illegal alien escape arrest by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).

“Judge Shelley M. Richmond Joseph and trial court officer Wesley MacGregor are accused of conspiring to prevent Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) from taking an undocumented immigrant into custody at Newton District Court on April 2, 2018,” said Daily Mail. “Joseph was seen crying when she left federal court in Boston Thursday.”
