The number of people turned over to ICE by Keith Nygren’s McHenry County Sheriff’s Department during July was forty-two.
That’s forty-two more criminals off the street.
Nygren entered the Homeland Security Department’s Secure Communities program, along with other collar county sheriffs not already participating, as of April, 2010.
Here’s the score card since then of illegal aliens with criminal backgrounds who have been detained by the Immigration and Customs Enforcement people:
- April: 41
- May: 41
- June: 34
- July: 42
158 in all.
If I were sheriff, I’d be bragging about this.
