Immigration Demonstrators Miss Opportunity to Take Issue to McHenry County Fall Ballot

Day Room of the ICE floor at the McHenry County Jail.

Sunday night folks complaining about the country’s immigration enforcement came to Woodstock’s McHenry County Jail.

It houses ICE detainees.

Bill Prim

Within the last year, McHenry County Sheriff Bill Prim, who runs the jail, was the topic of suits for refusing to allow an illegal immigrant charged with domestic battery to post bail.

That could have made him a target for Democrats who oppose current immigration policy.

They could have put up a candidate to challenge Prim.

But they did not.

Now it is too late.

Sheriff Bill Prim gets a free ride to a second term in office.

Immigration Demonstrators Miss Opportunity to Take Issue to McHenry County Fall Ballot — 25 Comments

  1. Running unopposed almost always leads to negative actions, no matter who the politician is or what party.

  2. Considering what we’ve seen in Algonquin Twp, the nob’s point is well taken

  3. People complaining about our nation’s ICE program are poorly informed and are fools.

    They are misled by the mostly corrupt and left leaning media and goofy top Democrats such as Maxine Waters.

  4. Sheriff Bill Prim has done a fantastic job running the Sheriff’s Department.

    For the first time in years, you have a Sheriff to be proud of.

    Geeezzz and he did not have to splash his name all over for recognition.

    Character counts folks as you can see.

  5. Yeah, and our crooked county clerk, Proud Mary Mc, would’ve been glad to have the illegal alien-not citizens vote in the Section 8 wards of McHenry, Woodstock and Harvard!

  6. anotherwatcher, I would agree w/ you on Prim as to the illegals, but Prim ain’t that ‘prim and proper’ on other issues just as big: like investigating the crooked batnest in Algonquin Township.

    After all, “Good” Prim allowed his ‘good name’ to be abused by dear Bobby Miller in the full page NWH ad, and other election materials, as a prominent endorser.

    I will never forget that.

    Prim is just following the law as to illegals.

    Yipee a Sheriff who follows the law!!!

    In Illinois yet!!!

    Wowie zowie!

    Give him another plaque.

    But he turned far more than a blind eye to the Miller gang’s many crimes ….. and did he force Kenneally to issue that hilarious 52 page “highly unethical but nothing criminal” crazy memorandum to give HIM cover down the line!????

  7. JustinFun and please tell me what Nygren or Zinke would have done, accept to protect Pyle.

    While watching
    the activities in Washington DC, I am beginning to wonder if Elected Officials are able to Indict another Elected Official . . .maybe Cal can clarify what holds these issues up.

  8. Justin – you refuse to recognize the LEGAL conflicts Sheriff Prim has and CANNOT take the case.

    Repeating this mantra with several names, does not alter the true facts.

  9. Justin hit the nail on the head.

    At least Prim didn’t continue Nygren’s ‘Underground Railroad” ferrying illegal aliens into Canada.

  10. James K, what are you twittering about?

    Just so you know, Algonquin Township covers all unincorporated areas the Sheriff serves as chief law enforcement officer, including, I believe the Township HQS.

  11. Yes, Now what Alg two covers.

    However, Miller contributed to the Prim campaign, Rob Hanlon (Gasser’s attorney) also served as Prim’s attorney. All sheriff’s have a relationship with the road commissioners, since those are the roads the deputies travel and wants them to be cared for properly for the safety of the deputies.

    If he investigated Miller there would have been screaming about conflict.

    PRIM DID THE RIGHT THING.

    If you cannot understand this, you have a problem.

  12. /darn the auto corrections. I KNOW WHAT ALG TWP COVERS. LIVED HERE FOR 43 yrs. What is your problem, Justin?

  13. James K, are you an underling of Prim or something?

    All Prim had to do if there was a real ‘conflict’ as you say, is to get the State Police in, or the AG’s office.

    Yes Great Poobah James K., there are mechanisms to deal with real or imagined conflicts besides sh#t-canning the crime investigation!

  14. It amazes me that snowflake liberals think that anyone who comes across the US border illegally deserves sanctuary.

    It also amazes me that the snowflake liberals think that all those that come up out of south and central america sh*t holes, and show up AT OUR BORDER CROSSINGS, automatically qualifies for US citizenship, when in fact they don’t even have a passport, DL or any info to identify who they are.

    So we the taxpayers get stuck babysitting this lot?

    Do what Eisenhower did with this issue.

  15. Seems like YOU have the problem — James! A problem trying to whitewash Prim’s laziness or worse.

    There’s Z E R O excuse for Prims reluctance to do anything in the wake of widespread corruption! (despite your best efforts to do so!)

  16. Prim referred the Miller case to the State Police, but there is no indication that agency did anything.

  17. Prim’s patronage, Sandra S., $100k a year plus $500 clothing allowance.

  18. NO I am not a Prim Underling.

    Much too old.

    Living here so long,

    I know the problems and when good people are on board, like Prim.

    He is doing a very good job.
    Good night!

  19. Prim does nothing almost everyday but think of ways to get out of work.

    Yes, he’s better than Zinke, but a placeholder for a Sheriff with guts and a little gitty-up.

  20. Title of this post by administrator is:

    “Immigration Demonstrators Miss Opportunity to Take Issue to McHenry County Fall Ballot”

    A more appropriate title might be:

    “Demonstrators supporting illegal alien invaders miss opportunity to take their ridiculous issue to fall ballot”

    What kind of morons and imbeciles support invaders into the U.S. who disrespect and disregard U.S. laws and try to come to this nation illegally? What kind of politician in McHenry County supports invaders and illegal aliens? Who are the politicians, Democrat or Republican, who support and cheer on the invaders and illegal aliens?

  21. I’d bet that most of our Mayors support illegal invasion as most McHenry county mayors are Liberals.

  22. “It also amazes me that the snowflake liberals think that all those that come up out of south and central america sh*t holes, and show up AT OUR BORDER CROSSINGS, automatically qualifies for US citizenship, when in fact they don’t even have a passport, DL or any info to identify who they are.”

    No —- That’s what ‘your’ biased, corrupt media is telling you.

    Here’s some liberal propaganda —- I mean an anti-fascist film produced by US Military in 1947, “Don’t Be a Sucker”. It has been making the rounds on more liberal news sites for the past year, I dought many of you have heard of or seen it. It’s shocking to me how much this film mirrors today’s hard Trumpers, and the far left’s intolerance and impatience for those whom they don’t see eye to eye with.

    According to a study in the 1950s —- the people who didn’t agree with or weren’t swayed by the message of the video was that they saw the main character as meek, not someone to follow or agree with.
