Immigration Crackdown - Illinois: Illegal immigration program a sham

Perez: Illegal immigration program a sham - "Kane County Sheriff Pat Perez said Wednesday a federal program billed as a crackdown on violent illegal immigrants has failed to do anything but harm police work and further burden taxpayers.

Perez participated in an interview with national media Wednesday to decry the Secure Communities program. Illinois dropped its participation in the program earlier this month, but Kane County was one of the first local communities to buy into the program in November 2009. ...

A study by the Illinois Coalition for Immigrant and Refugee Rights showed Perez his experience wasn’t an anomaly. DuPage, Kane, Lake and McHenry counties all saw up to 88 percent of the illegal aliens swept up by ICE had initially been picked up on minor offenses."
