California Supreme Court Justice Tani G. Cantil-Sakauye recently called ICE officers “stalkers” and demanded courts become safe spaces for illegal alien criminals. She thinks enforcement of immigration law at a court of law is a “violation” of the Constitution.
Convinced that she is right, Cantil-Sakauye wrote to Attorney General Jeff Sessions and the Secretary of Homeland Security John Kelly demanding courts become sanctuaries for these illegal alien criminals.
She got her answer.
In a strongly worded, joint letter to State Supreme Court Chief Justice Tani G. Cantil-Sakauye, U.S. Attorney General Sessions and Secretary of Homeland Security John F. Kelly admonished her for claiming ICE officers were “stalking” criminal illegal aliens at state courthouses.
ICE agents do not “stalk,” they wrote while reminding her of the law.
They pointed out that the risk of injury to the public and for the arresting officers are substantially decreased when in an area that has already been screened for weapons, such as a courthouse lobby.
Cantil-Sakauye thinks following immigration law is politics, though it’s obviously not — it’s the law.
