Whiny California Judge Seeks To Block Feds From Detaining Illegals In State Courts
March 17, 2017 – 10:29 am
Well, this is interesting: remember when Democrats were telling us that federal law took precedence over state law, and federal officials took precedence over state ones? Good times, good times
The chief justice of California’s Supreme Court on Thursday asked the administration of U.S. President Donald Trump to prevent immigration agents from arresting undocumented immigrants inside the state’s courthouses.
Chief Justice Tani Cantil-Sakauye said she was gravely troubled by recent reports that federal agents were “stalking undocumented immigrants in our courthouses to make arrests,” in a letter addressed to U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions and Secretary of Homeland Security John Kelly.
“Courthouses should not be used as bait in the necessary enforcement of our country’s immigration law,” Cantil-Sakauye wrote.

1. Done all the time in civil matters and state matters
Local LEO will check the civil calendar thelp find people with warrants. Process servers to the same thing. Like Xmas at home, it is one of the surefire ways to find people.
In all fairness, at a practical level they are concerned that people will not show up for state matters since they are concerned about being picked up. That hurts the state court stats. Also it means more people in lockup since bondsmen wont bond out potential illegals.
