Crook County (Cook), IL. Politicians Intentionally Put Its Citizens In Life Threatening Danger To Appease Illegal Immigrants
Another story about illegal (ILLEGAL) immigrants – illegal immigrants who have committed crimes while in America illegally (which is still a crime in of itself, never mind what political garbage like Pelosi, Reid and Durbin have to say about it); illegal immigrants who were initially imprisoned for those crimes they committed; illegal immigrants who were set free while on bail by Democrat and liberal politicians who continue their coddling, wooing, courting and all around love affair with them, illegal immigrants.
We know it’s all about the votes. We know Democrat and liberal politicians don’t really give a damn about immigrants, even those here legally, and those who have become American citizens through the proper legal channels. So is it any stretch of the imagination to say that the Cook County President, Toni Preckwinkle, who is in fact a Democrat, is intentionally, knowing and for the purpose of shoring up votes from Latinos and Hispanics, “acting stupidly” and putting all citizens of Cook County in danger by releasing illegal immigrants back into the general population, rather than turning them over to Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) for processing and deportation?
Why did Preckwinkle act so stupidly?
To “save money and keep families together”, according to the article.
In that event, why do we even have prisons to begin with? Preckwinkle, the selfish, irresponsible, self serving political garbage that she is ought to be impeached, if not arrested, for her blatant disregard for the safety of Cook County citizens. She, as a liberal Democrat, and by “acting stupidly”, has put her essential need of votes ahead of common sense and common decency, and the law itself.
From the article, Hanover Park Mayor Rod Craig:
Blasted the county ordinance after three suspected illegal immigrants accused of assaulting two of his village’s police officers were released back into the community rather than being detained by Cook County officials until they could be turned over to ICE.
Well, “Screw you, Mayor Craig,” says Cook County President, Toni Preckwinkle as she holds up her middle finger to him and the rest of Cook County. “Putting families back together is more important, even if it means some of them released will go on to commit more crimes.” With raised fist, Preckwinkle shouts, “Illegal immigrant power!” And then shrugging her shoulders, she smiles playfully and reiterates, “I’m saving the tax payers of Cook County money, what could be more important than that? So what if they go on to commit rape and murder? They have families too.”
Republican Senator, Charles Grassley, of Iowa has written a letter about Preckwinkle’s disdain for law and common sense to Janet Napolitano, Homeland Security Secretary. A waste of paper and ink, and time. Napolitano loves illegal immigrants just as much as Preckwinkle, and has herself “acted stupidly” with regards to allowing illegal immigrants to work in the United States. It should come as no surprise then that Napolitano is also a liberal Democrat.
From the article:
Approved in September, the ordinance disregards federal detainer requests by freeing suspected illegal immigrants charged with a crime if they’re able to make bail.
So, it becomes alright to disregard federal law in cases of allowing illegal immigrants back into the population “if they can make bail”. But politicians hands are either tied when it comes to arresting illegal immigrants, or it is not the responsibility of local governments to arrest and detain illegal immigrants because that is a federal responsibility. But if an illegal immigrant is arrested by the local authority for committing a crime (other than being here illegally) even though federal law dictates they should remain detained and in jail, because the arrest was not made by federal authorities, local politicians like Preckwinkle will use that as an excuse to release them “back to the arms of their loving families who, with tears in their eyes, await their return”. Try and make sense of that.
Toni Preckwinkle needs the Hispanic and Latino vote and she feels very intensely the only way to get it is to release all the illegal immigrants, the vast majority of whom are Latino and Hispanic, back into Cook County. Preckwinkle is perfectly willing to put the safety, the lives, of Cook County residents in harms way to get those votes.
Why does this not constitute a criminal act, let alone an impeachable offense? But don’t expect to see Preckwinkle in handcuffs any time.
Another letter by Grassley, and other concerned Republicans, was written to Gary Mead, Executive Associate Director of ICE, who responded by saying:
Cook County presents a major problem for immigration enforcement efforts.”
Mead further stated the stupid actions of Preckwinkle were an:
An accident waiting to happen.”
That is of absolutely no concern whatsoever to Preckwinkle, Napalitano and other like-minded irresponsible, conceited, arrogant liberal Democrats, who hear the chant of “votes” ringing and echoing in their ears, and nothing else.
In the states of Alabama and Arizona (and other states are soon to follow suit) their governments are passing strong anti-illegal immigrant laws. The good news for those states? The illegal immigrant population is leaving. The bad news for every other state, and sanctuary city, like Crook County, IL? Guess where the illegals will go. And it ain’t back to Mexico, or wherever they originally left to make the illegal trek to America.
Guess what that means for Cook County, IL. Guess what that means for corrupt politicians like Cook County President, Toni Preckwinkle.
Still scratching your head as to why it’s called “Crook” County?
