    U.S. charges Massachusetts judge with blocking immigrant's arrest by ICE

    U.S. charges Massachusetts judge with blocking immigrant's arrest by ICE


    By Nate Raymond
    ,ReutersApril 25, 2019

    BOSTON (Reuters) - Federal prosecutors on Thursday charged a Massachusetts judge and court officer with conspiracy and obstruction, alleging they blocked an Immigration and Customs Enforcement officer from arresting an illegal immigrant at a 2018 court proceeding.

    The arrests mark the latest skirmish over immigration enforcement between President Donald Trump's administration and local governments who have resisted his crackdown.


    The charges target Massachusetts District Court Judge Shelley Joseph and Massachusetts Trial Court Officer Wesley MacGregor, according to court papers filed on Thursday.


    They focus on an April 2018 hearing in Newton District Court, outside Boston, where an Immigration and Customs Enforcement intended to arrest an unidentified suspected illegal immigrant from the Dominican Republic facing a drug charge.


    They described a huddled conversation between the judge and the defendant's lawyer in which Joseph asks, "ICE is gonna get him?" and later says, "I'm not gonna allow them to come in here."


    She then arranged for the suspect to be released through the court's rear door while the ICE agent waited in the courtroom's lobby for him to emerge.


    Massachusetts U.S. Attorney Andrew Lelling said the case was not intended to send a message to judges who take issue with courthouse arrests by ICE of illegal immigrants.


    "We did not bring this case in response to the public debate over immigration enforcement," he said. "This is isn’t a policy seminar, it’s a law enforcement action."


    Prosecutors said that during an April 2018 court hearing in Newton involving a person in the United States illegally and facing drug charges, the judge and court officer arranged to release the suspect through the court's back door after telling an Immigration and Customs Enforcement officer to wait for him in the lobby.


    Representatives of the judge and court officer did not immediately respond to a request for comment.


    The charges carry a sentence of up to 20 years in prison.


    The suspect has since been caught and is now in federal custody.


    One of Trump's top priorities in office has been cracking down on illegal and legal immigration and he has regularly railed against "sanctuary" cities and states that do not cooperate with all aspects of federal immigration enforcement.


    Trump earlier this month floated the idea of busing undocumented migrants stopped at the border to "sanctuary cities," a move that critics called illustrative of the White House's callous approach to the issue and some Trump allies called impractical.

    Governor's of Sanctuary states are OBSTRUCTING justice harboring, aiding and abetting illegal aliens!

    When is A.G. Barr going to start to prosecute them!

    Prosecute them for embezzling our taxpayer dollars, misappropriating those funds, and USING those funds to aid and abet illegal aliens! That is not what we are paying tax for...money out of OUR pockets!

    Deem all drivers licenses issued to illegal aliens Null & Void! That is aiding and abetting them to stay here, drive on our roads, and registering them to vote which IS collusion with foreign nationals!

    THROW THE BOOK AT THESE GOVERNOR'S AND MAYOR'S!

    WHY IS THE IRS STILL ISSUING THEM TAX REFUNDS!
