The outspoken mayors of many sanctuary cities in the U.S. might applaud this judge who is alleged to have taken “judicial activism” to another level:

And yet the judge is “still on the bench”:


A judge has been accused of helping an illegal Mexican immigrant escape a courtroom where immigration officials were waiting to arrest and possibly deport him.

Diddier Pacheco Salazar, 22, appeared before Judge Monica Herranz to plead guilty in a DUI case on January 27 in Multnomah County, Oregon.

Salazar entered the courtroom with his lawyer but never came back out again.

A U.S. attorney accused the judge of allowing the man to leave the courthouse through a private door, and the incident is reportedly under internal investigation.
