EXCLUSIVE: Attorney General Bill Barr and Acting Homeland Security Secretary Chad Wolf are warning state supreme courts in Washington and Oregon that moves to stop federal immigration enforcement from making arrests in and around courthouses will create an “unacceptable risk” by letting illegal immigrants convicted of violent crimes loose in communities.
“Regardless of how one views our immigration laws, we should all agree that public safety should be of paramount concern,” says the letter from Barr and Wolf to chief justices in those states, obtained by Fox News. “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 article goes on to state the following:
The letter comes after Oregon’s Supreme Court restricted Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and Customs and Border Protection (CBP) from making arrests of illegal immigrants in and around courthouses without a judicial warrant. Washington is reportedly considering adopting similar rules.
In the letter, Barr and Wolf offer examples in Oregon and Washington of convicted criminals who have been released, and then gone on to commit additional crimes, including murder.
“These states laws and policies force state and local officers to release criminal aliens into communities in your States, endangering the public and forcing it to bear the cost of any additional criminal acts they may proceed to commit,” they wrote.
“Put simply, the policies you are considering endanger the public and hamper law enforcement by interfering with that lawful process,” the letter states.

With the letter, the administration includes cases of violent criminals who have been released in the states — including one example of a criminal alien who was released and later arrested for the murder and dismemberment of his victim. https://t.co/kWtRUrdwIt
