ICE Defies California Law

Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents arrested illegal aliens at a courthouse in California without a judicial warrant. By doing so they defied the so-called California Values Act. Passed two years ago, it makes California a sanctuary state, one which forbids cooperation with federal immigration law enforcement.

ICE maintains that its action was proper because under the Constitution federal law supersedes state and local laws. David Jennings, ICE’s field office director in San Francisco, stated, that the values act “will not govern the conduct of federal officers acting pursuant to duly-enacted laws passed by Congress that provide the authority to make administrative arrests of removable aliens inside the United States. Our officers will not have their hands tied by sanctuary rules when enforcing immigration laws to remove criminal aliens from our communities.”
