Proving that she’s more interested in carrying water for the Democratic Party’s new “illegal immigration isn’t illegal” ideology than she is in enforcing the law, U.S. District Judge Indira Talwani ruled this week that – at least for the time being – no illegal alien can be arrested or detained while inside a Massachusetts courthouse. Talwani, an Obama appointee, granted the preliminary injunction to the district attorneys of Suffolk and Middlesex Counties as a lawsuit proceeds towards making that the permanent law of the land.
Under the ruling, Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents are prohibited “from civilly arresting parties, witnesses, and others attending Massachusetts courthouses on official business while they are going to, attending, or leaving the courthouses.” Talwani opined that the ruling was in the “public interest.”
“I am upset at the notion that ICE thinks a courtroom is a place to go and pick up people,” Talwani said, sounding more like an immigration activist than a judge. “I see no reason for places of redress and justice to become places that people are afraid to show up.”
Why do leftists always use this phrase? We’re making illegal aliens “afraid.” We’re terrorizing illegal alien communities, etc. How about, the law is the law. Is that not your job as a judge, to interpret and enforce the law? If there is no law prohibiting federal agents from making arrests at a courthouse, how is it that you can just write that law on the spot from the bench? The very idea is almost too laughable to consider, and yet here we are.
“Judge Talwani’s own statements call into question her impartiality, and suggest that she may have already made up her mind on the issue of ICE courthouse arrests. Simply put, she is against them, as the statements above would appear to indicate,” said a spokesperson for the Center for Immigration Studies.
Immigration activists, however, said the ruling was a step in the right direction. In a statement, Ivan Espinoza-Madrigal of the Lawyers for Civil Rights group, praised Talwani for the injunction.
“Today’s order represents a huge victory for the rule of law, against the overreaching anti-immigrant policies of the Trump Administration,” he said. “As LCR and our allies have consistently demonstrated, ICE’s immigration enforcement in and around courthouses undermines our system of justice, by chilling victims and witnesses from seeking redress in our courts.”
You can’t deport them from courthouses, you can’t deport them from a jail, you can’t deport them here nor there, you can’t deport them, Sam I am.
Let’s just be honest, they don’t want any illegal alien deported, ever. All the rest of the justifications and excuses are just window dressing to disguise that radical truth.
