But here are the current attacks on immigration enforcement. First California State Supreme Court Chief Justice Tani Cantil-Sakauye launched another attack on immigration arrests in California courthouses, which appears to be a prelude to her issuing orders to courts to interfere with future arrests.
California Chief Justice Tani Cantil-Sakauye on Tuesday pushed back against criticism of her pleas to federal authorities to stop courthouse arrests of undocumented immigrants, telling a Sacramento gathering that she’s challenging arrest policies, not immigration laws.
“If you’re here, whatever your status, you enjoy the benefits of the laws of the state,” Cantil-Sakauye told judges, lawyers and legislative staffers attending the Women in the Court Legislative Day at California’s Capitol. A federal policy, not a law, “is superseding all of the other causes of justice,” she said.
Cantil-Sakauye in March assailed federal authorities for what she described as “stalking” undocumented immigrants in state courthouses, saying the arrests dissuade potential witnesses and victims from coming to court. U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials acknowledged the courthouse arrests. Court documentation and the buildings’ security screenings provide a safe place for agents to locate and detain targets, they said.
“It’s a national concern that deserves more attention … because we’re seeing people not come to court, not reporting to court, not coming for services, not coming to testify,” the chief justice said. “We are changing the way people think and feel about the law and justice and protection by this policy of immigration enforcement.”

While Cantil-Sakauye claims she is not challenging immigration laws but only arrest policies, that is a lie. What she and others at the State level object to is the enforcement of Federal immigration law. Where such arrests for violations of Federal law occur is irrelevant. She would not object to the arrest of terrorists or bank robbers in courthouses, but she does object to the arrest of illegal aliens. Her objection is to immigration laws and she does not like that those laws are being enforced.
Similarly, the Mexican Federal judge, Gonzalo Curiel, who is a member of a racist Mexican supremacist group, has telegraphed that he will be ordering the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to allow a previously deported illegal alien returned to the United States.
A “dreamer” who claims to have been unlawfully removed to Mexico may get his day in court sooner than expected.
Attorneys for Juan Manuel Montes Bojorquez, 23, have asked a San Diego federal judge to allow the young man to return legally to the U.S. while his lawsuit against U.S. Customs and Border Protection is adjudicated. During a hearing Tuesday, U.S. District Judge Gonzalo Curiel said he would like to hear Montes and other witnesses testify in person first, and suggested accelerating the whole matter by putting on a trial as soon as possible.

The Trump Administration has no one to blame in this case but themselves. Had President Trump ended DACA as promised, Bojorquez, who also has a long criminal record as well as being of an exceptionally low IQ, would not have a leg to stand on, even with a fellow Mexican as the judge in his case. Never mind the crazy story that he left his wallet in his friend's car after his friend dropped him off near the border for some reason, after they had been out partying that night. Why didn't his friend drop him off at his home instead? Most likely Bojorquez was involved in alien or drug smuggling and that is why he was at the border without his DACA card, which he knew would have protected him from arrest or removal.
But in the end, President Trump needs to cut this Mexican racist and revanchist Judge Gonzalo Curiel down to size by immediately ending DACA. Curiel is undoubtedly slobbering after this chance to hand President Trump a very public defeat by ordering this illegal alien admitted. This would be a real 4D chess move. The Administration also needs to move to order Billy Williams, the Acting United States Attorney for the District Of Oregon to prosecute Monica Herranz to the fullest extent of the law, pour encourage les autres. This will be a shot across the bow of the insurrectionists and seditionists in the State judiciary. There is not much one can do about Curiel though, except end DACA now. There is no political benefit, especially now, to continue the program. Treat these illegal aliens like trannies in the military.
