Matthew Kolken on Deportation And Removal

Obama Administration's next target may be Sanctuary Cities

Rating: 6 votes, 5.00 average.

It has been reported that ICE Director John Morton has asked Attorney General Holder to take legal action against Cook County, Illinois for their failure to deliver undocumented immigrants to ICE for deportation.  Cook County currently is not utilizing the Secure Communities fingerprint sharing (a.k.a. racial profiling) program.

Director Morton has stated that: "Right now, it's not a question of Cook County releasing some individuals to us," "They are releasing no individuals to us, including very violent offenders, and I just don't think that's good policy."

It has been further reported that DHS Secretary Napolitano is also "fed up" with Cook County, and is pushing for legal action that would require the County to comply.

One option also being considered is to withhold federal aid allocated to counties that hold criminal aliens in State jails.  Cook county is one of the top ten recipients nationwide receiving $13 million since 2008.

Ranking Democrat Rep. Henry Cuellar is on board:  "They cannot say, you know, we don't want you to do Secure Communities, but then at the same time they're requesting federal dollars for holding those prisoners."

In related news, Morton prepared written testimony for a House Committee on Homeland Security, Subcommittee on Border and Maritime Security hearing titled "Building a Secure Community: How Can DHS Better Leverage State and Local Partnerships?" 

Morton indicated that ICE has caused confusion by failing to properly explain how the Secure Communities program works.  Apparently, it wasn't properly conveyed that the Obama administration is using Secure Communities as a tool to deport people of color that have never been charged with any crime and to detain U.S. citizens in maximum security prisons using bogus immigration detainers.

Morton's remarks include statements that ICE takes seriously complaints raised about civil rights violations related to Secure Communities.

Director Morton, if you are reading, you can officially consider this blog as an ongoing complaint.  

Please check back often.

And incidentally, it was nice seeing you in Buffalo yesterday.  I hope you enjoyed your visit.

    1 Pull the shorts on, but not all the way, just to your knees. Pin them in place and leave the zieppr open so you don't trip. The cuffs should hit the ground. Now put on a BIG sweatshirt and pull it all the way down to your waist.2 With crumpled newspaper, stuff the sleeves of the sweatshirt and legs of the spare pants. Then belt the pants on at the level of your waist so it presses the pants against the sweatshirt. Pin your spare tennis shoes to the cuffs of your pants (otherwise known as your fake legs).3 Now pull the shoes up as if they were being held by the sweatshirt, in piggyback position and pin.4 For the fake head, stuff your lunch bag with newspaper, pin it in place, and pin the baseball cap on it. Put the jacket on and pull it down so it hides your weird waist.5 Now stumble around the house going Whoooooooooooooa! Almost all of this text was written exactly like the book, the whoooooooooooooa has exactly the same amount of o's, the only modified parts arethe ones that said stuff like belt the pants on as shown .I am REALLY sorry that you lost your book, I recommend you buy another one.P.S. No problem
