The Deep State is real, especially with regards to illegal aliens and immigration law enforcement. While the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is charged with the investigation and arrest of illegal aliens, other Federal agencies have a role. One of the roles of the Department of Justice (DOJ) is the criminal prosecution of illegal aliens and the defense of actions by DHS in the enforcement of immigration laws.
The other responsibility of the DOJ in immigration enforcement is the administration of the so-called immigration courts, really the Executive Office for Immigration Review (EOIR).
The EOIR provides administrative hearings for certain classes of aliens in removal proceedings or other administrative action, such as recission of legal permanent residency or fraudulently obtained citizenship documents. DOJ employees, including EOIR employees, take an oath of office to see that the laws of the United States are faithfully executed. Among the responsibilities of a Federal employee, including an employee of the EOIR is to report Federal crimes that come to their attention.
But many in the bureaucracy think themselves above the law, mostly because of Orange Man Bad; they are the Resistance, the Deep State, the saboteurs. And in immigration law administration at the EOIR they think they are real Federal judges, rather than administrative employees like any other Federal employee. And these Deep State saboteurs are quite open for their contempt for President Trump and his immigration enforcement policy, so contemptuous that they are openly working with an illegal alien in their courts.
This is not an illegal alien brought before the court, but an illegal who represents other illegal aliens as an attorney. Now, no one can serve as an attorney or be a member of the State Bar if they are an ongoing crimina (it is an ethical violation) nor are they eligible to represent an alien before the EOIR, as their status is inherently in conflict with the very laws at issue.
But that is all fine with the EOIR office in Los Angeles, they routinely allow an illegal alien into their courts, also a violation of law, as no one may enter Federal property without legal identification, and this illegal alien, Lizbeth Mateo, does not have valid identification under the Real ID Act, which is required to enter a Federal facility.
On Friday morning, attorney Lizbeth Mateo went to immigration court in downtown Los Angeles to represent a client with whom she has something in common.
She’s undocumented, too.
Mateo wore a navy blue suit, carried a binder stuffed with court records and announced herself to the immigration judge conducting a hearing. She has no more protection from arrest and deportation than any of her clients, but that’s not something she thinks about on the job…
Mateo says her own status does not come up in court, and she’s never sure whether judges or other lawyers know that the polished, savvy 34-year-old woman advocating on behalf of her clients does not have legal status herself.
“I’m a walking contradiction,” Mateo had told me a day earlier in her Wilmington law office.
[This Immigration Attorney Understands Her Clients. She’s Undocumented, Too, by Steve Lopez, LAT, January 11, 2020]
Now, the idea that the court employees do not know about her status is a lie. She would have to reveal that status to represent clients in immigration court as that would be a material fact. And she has long been a public illegal alien, so most likely, everyone knows.
In 2013, Mateo and eight other activists — they were known as the Dream 9 — made headlines by traveling south of the border and then coming back north to protest immigration policy and 9 million deportations during the Obama administration.
Some immigration reform activists cheered, while others feared the tactic could sabotage the chances of reform. Mateo and the others were arrested and Mateo was locked up for two weeks before being released back into the U.S.
Another question is what is up with her status? She has been arrested when she re-entered, is she in removal proceedings? Is she a fugitive from removal? Was she paroled and has the parole lapsed? Is she still in parole status, if so, why? Is ICE SVU just ignoring her? Has she won the Obama Regime Administrative Amnesty from ICE SVU?
But more importantly, she physically cannot enter a Federal building or office without identification under the REAL ID Act. At every EOIR office there are guards there, either Federal Protective Service (FPS) Officers or contract guards that are required to check identification. While illegal alien defendants do not need that identification, all others do, including counsel for illegal alien defendants.
Here we have the FPS not doing their job, or, more likely, the Chief Immigration Judge has ordered guards to allow Mateo entry. I think this is most likely.
But in any event, why is Rodin Rooyani, Assistant Chief Immigration Judge, EOIR, Los Angeles, after this very public and voluntary outing of Mateo as an illegal alien, allowing Mateo to appear in court and not ordered her arrest?

Let us see what the EOIR, FPS, DOJ OIG, and ICE do about this illegal alien. This is blatant insubordination and typical Deep State defiance of the President. Please, Stephen Miller, do something! Please, Ken The Knife, do something!
