Representatives of Immigration and Customs Enforcement say that the arrests of undocumented immigrants last week by plainclothes officers who did not identify themselves to bystanders outside a Brooklyn courthouse were allowed under current policy.

Under the Trump Administration, arrests at courthouses have become a common occurrence, much to the chagrin of immigration attorneys and immigrant rights advocates.

But the arrests last week gained attention after a defense lawyer tweeted about the plainclothes officers and a journalist who came to the courthouse reported that they refused to identify themselves.
