Federal immigration agents last week detained a woman in the U.S. illegally just after she received a protective order against an allegedly abusive boyfriend, in an El Paso County courthouse.
El Paso County Attorney Joanne Bernal said the ICE arrest inside a courthouse was "unprecedented and stunning."
"To my knowledge, and others I have spoken to, no one has a recollection of immigration officials acting like this in a courthouse," Bernal told NPR.
