Skip to comments.New Proposal: Block Immigration Enforcement In Courthouses
Posted on 05/27/2014 1:55:04 PM PDT by cotton1706
Courthouses should be off limits to officials looking to enforce immigration law, amnesty advocates are arguing.
According to a New York Times report the number of activists calling on the Obama administration to deem courthouses a sensitive location where enforcement is discouraged unless there are exigent circumstances is growing.
Immigrant advocates argue that enforcing immigration law at courthouses prevents and discourages immigrants, particularly illegal immigrants, from participating in the judicial system.
If they feel like the court is not a safe place where they can go, they may not show up to court, Nyasa Hickey, an immigration lawyer for an undocumented immigrant detained by immigration officials this month in Brooklyn during a pretrial hearing on a felony charge, told The Times.
In 2011, ICE Director John Morton issued a policy memo deeming schools, hospitals, institutions of worship, religious ceremony cites, and public demonstrations to be sensitive locations.
This policy is designed to ensure that these enforcement actions do not occur at nor are focused on sensitive locations such as schools and churches unless (a) exigent circumstances exist (b) other law enforcement actions have led officers to a sensitive location as described in the Exceptions to the General Rule' section of this policy memorandum, or (c) prior approval is obtained. This policy supersedes all prior agency policy on this subject, the memo read, laying out that enfacement actions include arrests, interviews, searches and immigration surveillance.

It's like somebody saying that the executive should disallow legislatures to make laws.
Again, this is one of the reasons I wrote my book. See the website in my tagline.
Up is down , right is left, gone is here and my wife is my husband.
CourtHOUSES (not just a courtROOM), to discourage the (use of the) law.
you ain’t got no tagline
“This is a court of LAW! You can’t go around arresting lawbreakers here!”
How ‘bout if we round them up and send them home?
I’m not even sure due process is involved here.
They are in the wrong place and removing them rectifies it.
The war on sanity is almost over.
“activists calling on the Obama administration to deem courthouses a sensitive location where enforcement is discouraged unless there are exigent circumstances”
You mean like if the defendants are deemed to have committed serious felonies and violent crimes in their own country? Like the ones Obama ordered to be released into the US onto an unsuspecting public?
Then they shouldn’t pass laws in Congress.
I have felt this way honestly about hospitals. So many people die when they go there, I wondered if I should even go to a hospital. But... I guess if you want a cure, you have to go sometimes under the knife. Gloom Despair, Oh Misery On Me...
“you aint got no tagline”
That’s bizarre. I can see it in my prepost. Let’s see if it actually posts.
Let’s take law out of the courthouses...
And they wonder why we look at them funny!
Taglines never show up in thread starter posts. They show up in comments, however.
wait...where did I hear this before???? oh yes, elections..Black Panthers...Holder...Zero...umhum.
This Republic: Illuminating Republican Government
A quick and concise read for those interested in the mechanisms of government. This Republic draws upon the writings of the American founders, and extensively upon the writings of John Adams, to illustrate and explain the principles of the American government.
Haha. I didn’t know that either!
It is a sensitive location if you’re a criminal.
Last year the regime released 40,000 violent illegals onto American streets. They had convictions including murder, rape, kidnapping, assault and robbery.
Last year the regime released onto American streets 60,000 illegals with convictions including identity theft, dui, theft and drug crimes.
Last year the BP in the Rio Grande sector of Texas caught 336,000 illegals attempting to enter the US.
The BP guesses that they may catch 1 in 5 illegal crossers.
soetoro's promise to "fundamentally transform America" is unfolding before our eyes. Cloward / Piven on steroids, squared.
The demonrats are abetting the destruction of the Republic while the spineless GOPe is either helping them or just standing by and watching it happen.
Their participation should be limited to rising and making their plea, rising to hear the verdict, and getting on a bus back to their Third World Craphole.
As an AMERICAN CITIZEN I expect MY Judicial System to protect me, my family, and my community from these hordes of murderers, rapists, child molesters, robbers, burglars, leeches, and assorted Third World Scum that came her ILLEAGALLY!
