There you are again. Confusing them with facts.<quoted text>
Immigration laws are federal. Martha Coakley is the state Attorney General. The agencies that enforce the immigration laws, the US Customs and Immigration Service and the Immigration and Customs Enforcement do not report to her. Only the US Attorney and US Department of Justice Attorneys can convene a federal grand jury, which is how most charges in federal court are initiated. Only the federal agencies can impose civil fines, demand to see immigration-related business records or access most immigration files, which are maintained by the federal agencies. In Immigration Court, the government is represented by attorneys from Immigration and Customs Enforcement, and the judges are from the US Department of Justice. If a state prosecutor showed up there, they would be shown the door.
How are you today?
