Chief Justice Tani Cantil-Sakauye said she was gravely troubled by recent reports that federal agents were "stalking undocumented immigrants in our courthouses to make arrests," in a letter addressed to US Attorney General Jeff Sessions and Secretary of Homeland Security John Kelly."Courthouses should not be used as bait in the necessary enforcement of our country's immigration law," Cantil-Sakauye wrote.
