The transgender woman was obtaining a protective order against an abusive boyfriend when she was detained, drawing national attention to the issue of courthouse arrests by immigration agents. Federal immigration authorities announced Wednesday, Jan. 31, 2017 that agents will enter courthouses only to capture specific targets, like convicted criminals, gang members, public safety threats and immigrants who have been previously deported or ordered to leave.
