The first suffragette convention took place, the first African-American baseball league forms, and the anniversaries of a destructive fire and mass shooting are among this week's milestones in Illinois history.
The city of Chicago, Cook County and the state of Illinois were three of 23 jurisdictions nationwide that were put on notice this week by the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) for their so-called sanctuary policies regarding immigrants here illegally.
In Illinois we continue to find bad actors in our local government and elected and/or appointed boards that go out of their way to cover it up, justify it, defend it, and even reward their actions with massive payouts. Why?
Dan Cadman's years of experience in the world of immigration law has left him with one, simple belief system. “If something bad can happen with illegal immigration, sooner or later it will,” Cadman, a fellow for the Center of Immigration Studies and a retired official with Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), recently told the Prairie State Wire.
Dan Cadman thinks Tom Homan may have had Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel in mind when he recently said political leaders who institute policies obligating law enforcement officers to release illegal immigrant criminals back into the community, as opposed to turning them over to Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents, should face arrest and prosecution.
