This story is unbelievable.
It’s one thing, still wrong, not to offer information on illegal aliens to ICE or not to detain them when ICE puts a detainer order on them.

It’s quite another to actively help them to escape while ICE is already there waiting to take them.
From Free Beacon:
On Jan. 27, Mexican national Diddier Pacheco Salazar appeared before Judge Monica Herranz in a DUI case. After it came to Herranz’s attention that Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents were in the hallway, she allegedly had Salazar leave her courtroom through her private entrance, Fox 12 Oregon reported Tuesday.
U.S. Attorney Billy Williams raised the issue when ICE agents notified him of the incident.
“I felt that it was inappropriate and delegitimizes the work of ICE agents who are out there doing their jobs,” Williams said.
How is this in any way comporting with the oath the judge took to uphold the law?
Williams said that you would think “people are going to abide by the law and not take steps based on their own motivations, their own politics, whatever the motivation was.”
Yes, if their obligation was to the law and not their political agenda.
Fortunately, Salazar was caught again two weeks later, no help from the judge.
The DOJ has apparently decided not to pursue a criminal investigation against her, which she really should be getting.
However, she is still facing an internal judicial investigation.
Let’s hope that if, in fact, she did it that she gets shown the door…
