Courthouse arrests of immigrants by ICE agents have risen 900% in New York this year: Immigration Defense Project

Sightings of ICE agents at courthouses across the state have surged from 11 to 110, compared with last year, advocates say.

In 2016, the Immigrant Defense Project documented 11 arrests or attempted arrests by Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents around the state. This year the number has spiked by 900%, with most in New York City — including one arrest on Tuesday in Brooklyn Criminal Court.

“The exponential increase in ICE courthouse arrests reflects a dangerous new era in enforcement and immigrant rights violations,” Immigrant Defense Project attorney Lee Wang said. “Immigrants seeking justice in the criminal, family and civil courts should not have to fear for their freedom when doing so.”

The group’s analysis found 20% of the immigrants ICE arrested this year had no prior criminal convictions. Some were appearing in court for traffic violations before immigration agents grabbed them. At least 16% of the immigrants were in court for desk appearance tickets, meaning their offenses did not merit an arrest. Arrests have occurred in family court and in one notorious case — at Queens Human Trafficking Court.

Since President Trump took office, ICE has ramped up enforcement of immigration laws as part of a crackdown on illegal immigration.

4 more charged for Durham Confederate statue vandalism; 8 total arrests made

— Four more people were arrested and charged Thursday for vandalizing a Confederate statue earlier this week, bringing the total number of arrests to eight.

Three of the new arrests came during a morning rally where protesters dressed all in black gathered at the Durham courthouse in support of the people charged earlier in the case. Speakers at the rally said they had gathered to get the Durham County Sheriff’s Office to drop the charges and to advocate for the removal of all Confederate statues.

Authorities on Thursday morning charged Aaron Alexander Caldwell, 24, Raul Mauro Arce Jimenez, 26, and Elena Everett, 36.

On Thursday afternoon, Taylor Alexander Jun Cook, 24, surrendered to the Durham County Sheriff’s Office.

Everett said that she does not have any regrets about her involvement in vandalizing the statue, despite the charges against her.

“The lawmakers in North Carolina have made it impossible to take those things down legally. Communities have the right to remove symbols of racism and white supremacy from their community,” Everett said. “I hope people all across the south look at Durham as an example.”

Other protesters tried to surrender for the destruction of the statue, the sheriff’s office said, but authorities turned them
