Legislation To Stop Ice Agents From Making Arrests At Courthouses

ICE agents making arrests at courthouses - With the recent election of the new administration, there has been an increase in Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents making arrests at courthouses and other sensitive locations. There have been reported incidents of such arrest at courthouses in Denver, New York, Los Angeles, and other cities around the country.
Fortunately, legislation has been introduced to curb this practice, entitled “Protecting Sensitive Locations Act” (H.R. 1815 and S. 845). These bills would codify limits on immigration enforcement actions at or near sensitive locations. It would also expand the definition of sensitive location to include any federal, state, or local courthouse, including the office of an individual's legal counsel or representative, and a probation office (among other additional locations).
