ICE Agent Removes Man During Church Service.

When Jose Juan Hernandez was worshiping at a friend's church last Fall, a fellow worshiper tapped him on the shoulder and arrested him. Mr. Hernandez was arrested by and ICE agent who attended chruch there. My question was the ICE agent's actions justified?. I no some times on occasion, a person will need to be arrested on a church's property. But most incidents usually involve belligerent or confrontational behavior where church officials are concerned for others' safety. Had Hernandez been behaving in a similar manner or had a habit of violence but he didn't. Seems Mr, Hernandez was in the country illegally, a crime. He had been deported on other occasions, but returned to the country illegally. Again, this is a crime. Yet, to disrupt a service to arrest a man of such a nonviolent crime is both rude and ridiculous. Why not arrest him in the parking lot after services? Agree or Disagree?

  1. I completely agree. He would be just as under arrest after church. The only thing that arresting him during the service did was "send a message". That message was, we don't care if houses of God are legal sanctuaries that operate as asylum for those who seek the counsel of the Lord, we want everyone to see the power of the government in protecting you in ways that God can't, and God is powerless to stop us". It may not be the message they wanted to send, but it's what came across. It was wrong on too many levels.

  2. Hello there,

    I think that law enforcement has a right to arrest ANYONE at any time any where.

    What about the man who opened fire DURING a church service? No one knew he was violent until lives where lost.

    Criminals need to know that they can not hide out inside the church...whether their crime is violent or nonviolent.

    Peace, blessings and DUNAMIS!

  3. It could have waited until after service. The gentlemen was not being investigated for violent acts. He didn't present as an immediate threat to the general public. As a matter of fact, if he were actually prone to violence ... tapping him on the shoulder to arrest him while he was getting his church on may have caused an physical altercation.

  4. If this "gentleman" had been wanted for manufacturing meth or assaulting a child, you would not be so quick to defend him, would you. The law is the law. Liberals and sympathyzers are too often second guessing law enforcement officers when they have no idea what the ramifications of their actions are.
