From commenter “Bred Winner”:
On May 18, the McHenry County Board will consider a resolution to cancel the ICE contract.
McHenry County Board
5/18/2021 7:00 PM
County Board Conference Room
667 Ware Rd Administration Building Woodstock, IL 60098
Item 13 on the Agenda is:
“Resolution to Cancel the Contract Between McHenry County and US Marshal/Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE)”
One of the reasons to cancel, a “WHEREAS”, is completely bogus, irrelevant and without data, facts or statistics to backup the claim.
WHEREAS, the increase in diversity of McHenry County in the past two decades has created a larger segment of the county that is opposed to the contract;
Whatever the actual and documented amount of diversity in McHenry County is absolutely irrelevant.
Also, there is no data, statistics about a “larger segment” opposed to the contract.
There are about 328,000 persons in the County per recent census and only 12-24 people showed up at anti-ICE rallies in the County.
It is not even known IF all of the people at these rallies are citizens of the US who are the only persons who have First Amendment Rights to speech and protest.
Illegal aliens, if they were in the rally group, have no rights per First Amendment.
But, even if all 12-24 (estimate) are at a rally, that is a tiny, tiny percent of the McHenry County population.
