THE chief jus­tice of Cal­i­for­nia’s Supreme Court on Thurs­day asked the ad­min­is­tra­tion of United States Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump to pre­vent im­mi­gra­tion agents from ar­rest­ing un­doc­u­mented im­mi­grants in­side the state’s court­houses.

Chief Jus­tice Tani Can­tilSakauye said she was gravely trou­bled by re­cent re­ports that fed­eral agents were “stalk­ing un­doc­u­mented im­mi­grants in our court­houses to make ar­rests”, in a let­ter to US At­tor­ney-Gen­eral Jeff Ses­sions and Sec­re­tary of Home­land Se­cu­rity John Kelly.
