Chicago frees over 40 illegal aliens who committed felonies in the US.

Chicago just freed over 40 illegal aliens who have committed felonies in the US. Many are hardcore gangbangers. New York City is expected to free a wave of felony committing illegal aliens.

From FAIR…

Over 40 suspected illegal aliens arrested on felony charges have been released from Cook County jails since the implementation last month of a county ordinance directing local law enforcement officials to ignore U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) detainers. (Forbes, Oct. 4, 2011; Huffington Post, Sept. 10, 2011) The detainers, sent to local jails, request officials detain illegal aliens for an additional 48-hour statutory period after local jurisdiction ceases so that an ICE officer may place the alien into federal custody.

The Commission passed the ordinance less than a month after the Chicago-based open borders group, National Immigrant Justice Center (NIJC), filed a suit against the Department of Homeland Security challenging the constitutionality of ICE detainers. (NIJC Website, Aug. 12, 2011) The lawsuit undoubtedly influenced the Cook County Commissioners who voted in favor of the ordinance. “What we are doing is righting a wrong against people who are on the soil of Cook County under the protection of the U.S. Constitution,” said Commissioner Larry Suffredin, a Democrat who supported the measure.
