NEW YORK – New York Attorney General Letitia James and Brooklyn District Attorney Eric Gonzalez today won a major victory against the Trump Administration that prevents the Administration’s practice of making civil immigration arrests in and around state courthouses in a manner that interferes with the state’s administration of justice. Judge Jed Rakoff of the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York granted Attorney General James and DA Gonzalez’s motion for summary judgment to immediately end the Trump Administration’s policy that allowed U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents to interfere with New York State case proceedings.
