Philadelphia Bar Association Orders Lawyers and Judges to Resist ICE

The head of the Philadelphia Bar Association told lawyers and judges that they should resist the “police state” of ICE and other federal immigration authorities, according to Newsmax.

The Bar Chancellor, A. Michael Snyder, told the Washington Times that he believes the actions of ICE and other such agencies “are hauntingly reminiscent of those of a police state, calling to mind the actions of a secret or state police.”

Therefore, Snyder recommended that “law enforcement agencies, local governments, and court administrations…prevent the access of ICE agents into courthouses, and protect the rights of individuals lawfully within those facilities from harassment or arrest by ICE agents, whether informed or not.”
