American patriots have watched over the past several weeks as ICE agents have rounded up thousands of criminal illegal aliens for deportation. Unfortunately, the hard-working men and women of ICE aren’t popular with everyone, and now, the Trump-hating Chief Justice of California has just sent a shockwave through the law enforcement world by sending a bold letter.

According to Red State Watcher, California Chief Justice Tani G. Cantil-Sakauye has just advised United States Attorney General that she wants ICE agents to stay out of California courthouses indefinitely. The following is the letter Cantil-Sakauye sent to AG Sessions in which she turns California’s courthouse into sanctuaries for illegals.

Dear Attorney General Sessions and Secretary Kelly:

As Chief Justice of California responsible for the safe and fair delivery of justice in our state, I am deeply concerned about reports from some of our trial courts that agents appear to be stalking undocumented immigrants in our courthouses to make arrests.

Our courthouses serve as a vital forum for ensuring access to justice and protecting public safety. Courthouses should not be used as bait in the necessary enforcement of our country’s immigration laws.

Our courts are the main point of contact for millions of the most vulnerable Californians in times of anxiety, stress, and crises in their lives. Crime victims, victims of sexual abuse and domestic violence, witnesses to crimes who are aiding law enforcement, limited-English speakers, unrepresented litigants, and children and families all come to our courts seeking justice and due process of law. As finders of fact, trial courts strive to mitigate fear to ensure fairness and protect legal rights. Our work is critical for ensuring public safety and the efficient administration of justice.

Most Americans have more daily contact with their state and local governments than with the federal government, and I am concerned about the impact on public trust and confidence in our state court system if the public feels that our state institutions are being used to facilitate other goals and objectives, no matter how expedient they may be.

Each layer of government – federal, state, and local – provides a portion of the fabric of our society that preserves law and order and protects the rights and freedoms of the people. The separation of powers and checks and balances at the various levels and branches of government ensure the harmonious existence of the rule of law.

The federal and state governments share power in countless ways, and our roles and responsibilities are balanced for the public good. As officers of the court, we judges uphold the constitutions of both the United States and California, and the executive branch does the same by ensuring that our laws are fairly and safely enforced. But enforcement policies that include stalking courthouses and arresting undocumented immigrants, the vast majority of whom pose no risk to public safety, are neither safe nor fair. They not only compromise our core value of fairness but they undermine the judiciary’s ability to provide equal access to justice. I respectfully request that you refrain from this sort of enforcement in California’s courthouses.

—Chief Justice Tani G. Cantil-Sakauye”

Cantil-Sakauye’s request for ICE agents to stay out of California’s courthouses is truly an obstruction of justice. It is incomprehensible that any judge would be allowed to interfere with the work of a law enforcement agency, and what we see here is the elite judicial class passing down rules for average law-abiding citizens to live under while they use their power and wealth to stay far removed from the ill effects of their decisions.

America is suffering from this plague of judicial elites who aren’t elected but continue to wield the unlimited power to subvert the will of the American people. Congress must start the process to get rid of these power abusing judges. President is doing everything within his power to make America great again, and if these liberal judges continue to misuse their power, it will greatly diminish his efforts. Please share this with others and tell them to contact their state representatives and complain about this judicial overreach.
