Trump Admin Warns Sanctuary States against Barring ICE Courthouse Arrests in Letter

Trump Admin Warns Sanctuary States against Barring ICE Courthouse Arrests in LetterState supreme courts in Washington and Oregon received a letter from Attorney General William Barr and Acting Homeland Security Secretary Chad Wolf on Friday warning them to reconsider "dangerous and unlawful" directives that prohibit immigration officials from detaining illegal immigrants in and around state courthouses.Last week, Oregon Supreme Court Chief Justice Martha Walters banned ICE from courthouse arrests "to maintain the integrity of our courts and provide access to justice," unless the agency has a criminal judicial warrant. Washington is considering adopting a similar measure.In response to Walters's ruling, ICE said it "will continue to carry out its mission to uphold public safety and enforce immigration law.""It is ironic that elected officials want to see policies in place to keep ICE out of courthouses, while caring little for laws enacted by Congress to keep criminal aliens out of our country," an ICE statement read.Barr and Wolf's letter, obtained exclusively by Fox News, disparages a claim that Walters makes in requiring a judicial warrant for ICE to make its arrests - an often-peddled sanctuary city policy that obfuscates the reality of immigration law."Put simply, an administrative arrest warrant is all that Congress requires for authorities to make an arrest of an alien inside the United States for violations of federal immigration laws subject to the exceptions specifically delineated by Congress in the Immigration and Nationality Act for immigration officers to make warrantless arrests. Administrative arrest warrants -while civil in nature -are issued based on probable cause, carry the full authority of the United States, and should be honored by any state or local jurisdiction," the letter explains."We will further note that ICE and CBP officers are not subject to state rules that purport to restrict ICE and CBP from making administrative arrests on property that is otherwise open to the public and other law enforcement officers," the letter continues. "Under the Supremacy Clause of the United States Constitution, such rules cannot and will not govern the conduct of federal officers acting pursuant to duly-enacted laws passed by Congress when those laws provide the authority to make administrative arrests of removable aliens inside the United States."In concluding, Barr and Wolf urge the courts that "we should all agree that public safety should be of paramount concern.""Court rules that would purport to further restrict the lawful operations of federal law enforcement officials only serve to exacerbate sanctuary laws and policies that continue to place our communities at unacceptable risk," the letter ends.

Former FBI Lawyer Under Criminal Investigation for Altering Document in Russia Probe: Report

Former FBI Lawyer Under Criminal Investigation for Altering Document in Russia Probe: ReportA former FBI lawyer is under criminal investigation for allegedly altering a document pertaining to the 2016 surveillance of a Trump campaign adviser.The document will likely factor into Justice Department inspector general Michael Horowitz's review of the FBI's attempts to obtain a FISA warrant to surveil former Trump campaign official Carter Page, CNN first reported.At the time, the FBI was looking into allegations that the Trump campaign worked with Russian operatives to influence the 2016 presidential election. The Mueller investigation later concluded that those allegations were based on insufficient evidence. During an April Senate hearing, U.S. attorney general William Barr said he believed "spying did occur" during the FBI's Russia probe, possibly in the case of Page.Horowitz has also shared the document with federal prosecutor John Durham. Durham was appointed this year by Barr to investigate intelligence gathered by the FBI as part of its Russia probe. According to the Washington Post, the altered document did not affect the basic validity of the FISA warrant obtained to investigate Page.The Justice Department declined to comment to CNN on the matter. The lawyer under investigation no longer works at the FBI.Horowitz's probe into the origins of the FBI's Russia investigation was upgraded to a criminal probe in October. Senator Lindsey Graham (R., S.C.) said on Wednesday he expects the probe's findings to be released on December 9."I look forward to reviewing the report and hearing Mr. Horowitz's testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee, where he will deliver a detailed account of what he found regarding his investigation, along with recommendations as to how to make our judicial and investigative systems better," read a statement from Graham's office.
