Chicago-Area Police Release Criminal Illegals Back into Community

ICE captures 22 aliens in three-day sweep…

'BLOODTHIRSTY:' War Criminal Lied About Refugee Status to Enter U.S.(Ana Michaels, Liberty Headlines) Six out of 22 arrests made by federal officers during a 3-day operation in the Chicago area were criminal aliens who were released, after local law enforcement failed to notify U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement that they were in custody.

Immigration detainers request for local law enforcement to inform ICE before the aliens are released from police custody for any reason.

During the 3-day operation, ICE officers made arrests in the following locations in Illinois: Chicago, Cicero, Hoffman Estates, Palatine, Park City, Rolling Meadows and Round Lake Beach.

Chicago had the highest number of arrest with 9.

The criminal illegal aliens arrested came from five countries: Ecuador, Honduras, Mexico, Serbia and Ukraine.

Mexico, with 17, had the highest number by far.

The rest all had one arrest, save Honduras with two.

According to ICE, most of the aliens targeted during the Chicago area operation had prior criminal histories.

Convictions included crimes such as sexual assault, kidnapping, assault, assault with a weapon, drug possession, theft, obstruction of justice and drunk driving.

Two people arrested by ICE were fugitive immigration violators known to authorities.
