NEW YORK – Four illegal aliens were nabbed by agents with Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) outside of a Brooklyn courthouse Thursday morning where they were scheduled to appear in court on misdemeanor charges, according to an ICE spokesperson.

The agents arrested the illegal immigrants who were set to appear in Brooklyn Criminal Court Thursday, three on charges of misdemeanor trespass, and one on a misdemeanor weapon possession, Fox News reported.


The four arrested — Eduardo Romero, Juan Villa, Fredy Rosa and Sergio Perez — are all Mexican nationals, and are associated with the Niños Malos gang, a primarily Mexican street gang that operates out of Sunset Park in Brooklyn, ICE spokesperson Rachael Yong Yow said. Niños Malos translated from Spanish means “bad kids.”

The Brooklyn District Attorney’s Office told Fox News it didn’t know ICE was going to arrest the illegal immigrants.

“We were not notified, and we do not cooperate with ICE,” a spokesperson for the office said.




ICE agents are legally authorized to arrest illegal immigrants at courthouses.

Is it legal to arrest suspected immigration violators at a courthouse?

“Yes, the arrest of persons in a public place based upon probable cause is legally permissible.  ICE officers and agents are expressly authorized by statute to make arrests of aliens where probable cause exists to believe that such aliens are in violation of immigration laws.”

New York State Attorney Eric Schneiderman, along with Acting Brooklyn District Attorney Eric Gonzalez, alleged in August that ICE has been waiting near courthouses — a location not deemed as “sensitive” by ICE — in an effort to arrest illegal immigrants, and requested “that ICE refrain from arresting witnesses and victims.”

What does ICE mean by the term “sensitive location”?

Locations treated as sensitive locations under ICE policy would include, but are not be limited to:

  • Schools, such as known and licensed daycares, pre-schools and other early learning programs; primary schools; secondary schools; post-secondary schools up to and including colleges and universities; as well as scholastic or education-related activities or events, and school bus stops that are marked and/or known to the officer, during periods when school children are present at the stop;
  • Medical treatment and health care facilities, such as hospitals, doctors’ offices, accredited health clinics, and emergent or urgent care facilities;
  • Places of worship, such as churches, synagogues, mosques, and temples;
  • Religious or civil ceremonies or observances, such as funerals and weddings; and
  • During a public demonstration, such as a march, rally, or parade.

Are sensitive locations located along the international border also protected?

The sensitive locations policy does not apply to operations that are conducted within the immediate vicinity of the international border, including the functional equivalent of the border.  However, when situations arise that call for enforcement actions at or near a sensitive location within the immediate vicinity of the international border, including its functional equivalent, agents and officers are expected to exercise sound judgment and common sense while taking appropriate action, consistent with the goals of this policy.

Examples of operations within the immediate vicinity of the border are, but are not limited to, searches at ports of entry, activities undertaken where there is reasonable certainty that an individual just crossed the border, circumstances where ICE has maintained surveillance of a subject since crossing the border, and circumstances where ICE is operating in a location that is geographically further from the border but separated from the border by rugged and remote terrain.

Illegal aliens in “sensitive” locations, such as schools or places of worship, aren’t subject to ICE arrests which is absolutely ridiculous.


God Bless.
