The chief justice of New Jersey’s highest court is calling on federal immigration officials to stop arresting unauthorized immigrants at state courthouses, warning the practice could undermine New Jersey’s justice system.

Supreme Court Chief Justice Stuart Rabner wrote a letter to federal Department of Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly on Wednesday raising objections to the arrests of two individuals making routine appearances in New Jersey Superior Court in recent weeks.
