McHenry County Sheriff’s Department Identifies and Detains 116 Illegal Aliens April thru June

Chicago Tribune columnist Dennis Byrne pointed out all collar counties are detaining criminal aliens and turning them over to Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials.

Yesterday, Chicago Tribune columnist Dennis Byrne wrote a column wondering why President Barack Obama’s administration is suing Arizona, but not Rhode Island. I wrote about that last week.

As I did, Byrne points out that collar county sheriffs are participating in the Immigration and Customs Enforcement program of identifying “criminal aliens” for detention.

I asked the McHenry County Sheriff’s Department how many had been identified and detained.

The program began in McHenry County in April, as has been exclusively reported locally by McHenry County Blog.

In April and May 41 such criminals were taken off the streets. Thirty-four more in June.

114 in all.

The floor of the McHenry County Jail where ICE detainees are incarcerated have views through narrow windows.

So, almost one criminal alien is picked up every day in McHenry County.  My guess is they end up on the ICE floor of the McHenry County Jail.

When I asked from what country they came, I was told,

“We do not track the detainees by nationality or religion.”

Sheriff Keith Nygren was severely criticized by audience members when Ohio Sheriff Daniel Beck spoke at McHenry County College. Nygren did not attend the meeting.

Two years ago local activist Tom Roti urged Nygren to start this program. It began about two years later.

Considering the heat that the immigration issue has generated, I am surprised that Nygren has not sought publicity about his participation in the Secure Communities program of ICE.
