Chief Justice of the New Jersey Supreme Court, Stuart Rabner, asked Trump officials last month to stop arresting illegal immigrants inside courthouses. It appears Trump has given Chief Justice Rabner his answer, from NewJersey.com:
As recently as last week, armed Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents in plainclothes arrested an undocumented immigrant at the Middlesex County courthouse, Sheriff Mildred Scott told WNYC. The man was free to go – except right then, immigration agents stepped in and detained him on an undisclosed charge…
Before Trump gave ICE more discretion to arrest undocumented immigrants, attorneys say, federal agents never slipped into court to make arrests.
Two ICE arrests prompted Rabner’s initial letter. One was a March 31 incident at the Middlesex County courthouse in which an immigrant who was a victim of a crime found himself handcuffed by sheriff’s officers and turned over to ICE.
