July 24, 2008

JOSÉ HERRERA, a Northeastern Illinois University business student, was stopped for speeding June 11. He was arrested for driving without a license or insurance, and a DUI.

His sister Erika, a prospective high school math teacher, said that the family attempted to pay the bail, set at $2,000, but officials at Cook County Jail only gave them excuses about why they couldn't accept it.

In a similar case in May, a 26-year-old restaurant worker, Jacobo Ruiz, was coming back from his job and stopped to fill up his gas tank. He was arrested by a Chicago police officer for driving without a license. Ruiz had no police record.

For most drivers, this would have probably ended with a ticket and a court date. But the police "suspected" that Ruiz was an "illegal," so he was arrested, charged and put in Cook County Jail.

The next day, when Ruiz's wife Severa offered to pay his bail of $1,500, she was told that the jail had received an Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) order requiring that Ruiz be detained for another two days. But the 48-hour period multiplied many times over. After five months of uncertainty, ICE came for Ruiz, and he now faces deportation. His current bail is an unattainable $10,000.

Hammer time has finally come to Chicago. . . . .

on the one hand he did deserve what he got and his bail should have been more like $100,000 instead of $10,000. but on the other hand, why did i.c.e. keep extending his detention for 5 months. what if he WAS here legally? that seems potentially problematic to me.
