Massachusetts Judge Faces Federal Charges For Blocking Immigration Arrest

According to Reuters, federal prosecutors charged a Massachusetts judge with conspiracy and obstruction, saying she blocked an Immigration and Customs Enforcement officer from arresting an illegal immigrant at a 2018 court proceeding.

The charges mark the latest skirmish over immigration enforcement between President Donald Trump’s administration and local governments who have resisted his crackdown.

The state Supreme Judicial Court suspended Joseph without pay following the charges.
