Obama Judge Invents Sanctuary Courthouses

Activist judge declares all Massachusetts courthouses ICE-free zones.
All courthouses in Massachusetts have become ICE-free zones because a zealous left-wing Obama judge took it upon herself to forbid immigration officers from detaining suspected illegal aliens on judicial soil.
This lawless order is reportedly the first judicial fiat in the United States to block immigration arrests across an entire state, according to The Epoch Times. Massachusetts happens to be the home of state Judge Shelley M. Richmond Joseph, who was charged earlier this year under federal law for helping an illegal alien evade an ICE agent in her courthouse.
Although police have been arresting suspects in courthouses ever since courthouses were invented –it is a great deal safer for police than raiding a factory or a home— labor lawyer Indira Talwani, now a judge in the U.S. District Court for the District of Massachusetts, granted a preliminary injunction barring U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents “from civilly arresting parties, witnesses, and others attending Massachusetts courthouses on official business while they are going to, attending, or leaving the courthouse.” The order specifies that it “does not limit ICE’s criminal arrests of such individuals or its civil arrests of individuals who are brought to Massachusetts courthouses while in state or federal custody.”
President Barack Hussein Obama nominated Talwani Sept. 24, 2013. The U.S. Senate confirmed Talwani on May 8, 2014.
The injunction dated June 20 came in the case of Ryan v. ICE, a lawsuit brought by two left-wing prosecutors: Middlesex County District Attorney Marian Ryan (D) and Suffolk County District Attorney Rachael Rollins (D). Ryan has described herself as a “proven progressive prosecutor.” Rollins released a 65-page memo laying out her vision of “progressive prosecution,” which involves not prosecuting accused criminals.
Ryan and Rollins hit the jackpot when a friendly fellow radical, former AFL-CIO lawyer Indira Talwani, got assigned the case. Ryan, by the way, lauded the judge’s ruling, saying, “The granting of this injunction is a critical step in the right direction for our Commonwealth and it should be a model for our nation.”
