CHICAGO (AP) — The release of more than 40 suspected illegal immigrants jailed in Cook County on felonies has added fuel to a contentious debate over public safety and local authorities' defiance of a White House program that aims to pursue more criminal deportations.
The program depends on police and sheriff's deputies to hold suspected illegal immigrants who get arrested beyond the time when they would otherwise be released. But commissioners in the county around Chicago recently adopted a new law that orders the sheriff to ignore all federal requests to detain immigrants after they complete their sentences or post bail.

Gee, I wonder when Obama will sue them? I thought the plan was to only release those without a known criminal record.

Good point! so, sue Arizona for desperately trying to make their own citizens safer, but don't sue Cook County for letting very dangerous Illegal Aliens out of jail?!

Hmmm...why on earth would any government's leaders do things like this?

Could it be possible....a govt. would be wanting chaos and social unrest to increase for some diabolical reason?!

I think so. Nothing else makes sense.

Who knows? This could be another backroom deal ordered by Obama/Holder. Remember, they released 500,000 of these miscreants a couple of years ago, so what’s another 40? They won’t be satisfied until more citizens are maimed or killed. Yet, all opponents are vilified.

You said it, Who knows, with this administration, who the hell knows. Can't figure them out, they are like a jigsaw puzzle, try and put the pieces together, you can't!

Yes! wasn't it Rahm-baby that said to never waste a good emergency?
They, true radicals all grown up, from the sixties need to create emergencies when they don't have any.

Dang, we truly are, as a nation in uncharted territory, and that last presidential election really, really was a "Communist takeover" from within.

When one does have a lot of it figured out, it sounds like a grand, movie script but it's reality.

Makes me feel like grandma's bible, that last chapter was not so farfetched, ya know? sigh~

Did anyone notice that all of the states involved are states that have pretty big sanctuary cities? New York state, California and of course Illinois. I think that the governors of the states were influenced by the mayors and politicians from those cities to push for getting rid of the Secure Communities program (even though it is usually more city-involved). If you are a Illinois governor then you are going to get pushed by the mayor of and politicians from places like Chicago. Same for New York state, I'm sure Bloomberg had something to do with getting rid of Secure Communities or pushing for less cooperation with federal agencies.

Take New York state for instance. If the rest of New York state doesn't want to accommodate illegal immigrants, yet, cities like NYC are wanting to then what will happen? I think the place like NYC or Chicago has a lot of power to get its way. But, that of course could change.

"What we are doing is righting a wrong against people who are on the soil of Cook County under the protection of the U.S. Constitution," said Commissioner Larry Suffredin, a Democrat who supported the measure.
Why are they so passionate about defending illegal immigrants instead of helping those who are here legally and/or were born here?

You're right about the santuary cities and states, So Edible. You just asked the million dollar question in your last sentence also. Baffling, isn't it?
