    ICE ‘surprise’ arrest in Sacramento courtroom could have chilling effect across state

    BY YESENIA AMARO

    Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents entered Sacramento Superior Court last week and handcuffed an immigrant, making an arrest inside a courtroom that is considered a first of its type in the state, one that could have a chilling effect across California.

    “This will turn the judicial system on its head,” Sacramento attorney Charles Pacheco said.

    Pacheco said Wednesday’s arrest happened as a Sacramento Superior Court arraignment for his client, Yovanny Ontiveros-Cebreros, was concluding. Pacheco said ICE agents placed his client in handcuffs.

    Pacheco said he asked Superior Court Judge Lawrence Brown to step in, and Brown placed Ontiveros-Cebreros in the area behind the bar that’s designated for defendants who are in custody before proceeding to hear another 10 cases.

    After Brown concluded hearing his other cases, he entered his chambers only to return to the bench and say that ICE had a warrant for Ontiveros-Cebreros’ arrest, Pacheco said. Brown was “puzzled,” Pacheco said.

    “The judge was weak — he had no control of his courtroom, and allowed the federal government to come into his court,” Pacheco said. “He (Brown) just wanted to neutralize the situation, so he could figure out what was going on, and then he felt that it was justified that the (ICE) guy said there was a warrant for illegal re-entry.”

    Brown responded to Pacheco’s comments in a statement to The Sacramento Bee, explaining that judges do not prevent lawful arrest warrants from being enforced.

    “Remanding on an outstanding arrest warrant issued by another jurisdiction is the province of the Sheriff’s department,” Brown said. “It happens on a regular basis, particularly in large felony arraignments courts. The court was mindful of the concerns raised by counsel about a chilling effect on undocumented persons coming to court – one articulated far more thoughtfully by the Chief Justice of California – but such concerns could not impede enforcing a lawfully-issued warrant at the moment.”

    A year ago, state Supreme Court chief justice Tani Cantil-Sakauye forcefully called on federal immigration agents to stop looking in California’s courtrooms for people they suspect are living in the country illegally in a letter to U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions and then Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly, who is now chief of staff for President Donald Trump.

    “Enforcement policies that include stalking courthouses and arresting undocumented immigrants, the vast majority of whom pose no risk to public safety, are neither safe nor fair,” she wrote.

    And even though Cantil-Sakauye wrote in the March 16, 2017, letter “courthouses should not be used as bait in the necessary enforcement of our country’s immigration laws,” she acknowledged at the time that neither she, nor California, has the authority to force immigration authorities to stay away.

    Since Trump took office, people – those here legally and undocumented immigrants – are less likely to report crimes, to come forward as witnesses to crimes and to seek help if they are victims of crimes, Cantil-Sakauye said. That impedes public safety, infringes the constitutional rights of individuals and their access to justice and has led to a “tide of rising violence,” she said.

    “If no one ever speaks out, then we can never be the land of the free and the home of the brave,” Cantil-Sakauye said later at an August 2017 Senate panel discussion.

    ICE spokesman Richard A. Rocha said the agency “made a criminal arrest at the Sacramento Superior Courthouse on Wednesday pursuant to a criminal arrest warrant issue by a federal magistrate judge.”

    “As this is an ongoing federal criminal case, no additional information is available at this time,” he said.

    I love it and want to see more of it! In a sanctuary city and state you have to nab 'em when and where you can.

    ICE...please show up at our schools.

    We want ALL illegal aliens OUT of our schools and OFF our soil.

    They have no valid documents or Student Visa to attend OUR schools.

    The illegal parents ARE the guardians and custodians of THEIR minor children...deport the whole family!

    Do not reward them with OUR taxpayer funded benefits! DEPORT!

    They cannot leave them here like a box of unwanted puppies! They TAKE them with them.

    These government TAXPAYER funded schools are harboring, aiding and abetting ILLEGAL ALIENS and enabling their illegal parents to live in our communities by AWARDING them our benefits.

    Fire any school officials that are enrolling illegal aliens in our schools!

    DEPORT THEM ALL

    Hopefully this will have them constantly looking over their shoulder. We need to increase the pressure and make it as uncomfortable as we can for them until we finally catch them and send their ass back. Yes, we need to give them as much anxiety as possible. We need to let them know that we are fed up and we are coming for them.

    If they are in your schools, take pictures of the illegal alien parents license plates and email them to ICE!

    STOP REWARDING ILLEGAL ALIENS AND STOP FORCING US TO PAY FOR THEM!

    OUR SCHOOLS ARE OVERCROWDED, OUR TEACHERS NEED RAISES, OUR SCHOOLS ARE IN DIS-REPAIR!

    THEY COST US $15,000 PER YEAR PER ILLEGAL! MANY HAVE FIVE IN OUR SCHOOLS! THAT IS $75,000 PER ILLEGAL FAMILY!

    THIS MONEY COMES OUT OF OUR LOCAL TAXES!

    BOOT THEM OUT!
