The consulate has reviewed at least a dozen instances this year in which people traveling from Mexico to Chicago's O'Hare International Airport were detained while U.S. Customs and Border Protection agents arrested family members or acquaintances waiting to pick them up, officials said.

In those instances most arriving from Mexico were either U.S. citizens or had valid documentation such as a visitor's visa, the consulate said.

"We have to let the people know that they are at risk of being detained," consulate official Ioana Navarrete said. "It's something that has escalated."

In one case, a U.S. citizen minor was allegedly detained while agents asked him about the whereabouts of his parents, who were illegal immigrants and had come to the airport to pick him up. CBP agents then asked for the parents through an airport speaker system, consulate officials claimed.

CBP spokeswoman Cherise Miles declined to discuss specific cases Friday.

"CBP strives to treat all travelers with respect and in a professional manner while maintaining the focus of our mission which is to protect all citizens and visitors in the United States," she said.

Miles said agents at a port of entry can — during the course of duties — arrest any person who is in the U.S. unlawfully. The rules apply at airports, sea ports or land border crossings.

It also reminded individuals that "authorities may seek to identify and verify their legal stay in this country."

For those who think they are slick by avoiding the border, the hammer continues to fall . . . .

Someone suggested a good way to round them up would be to advertise a 75% off sale at Walmart. Just load them into the ICE vans from there.

Illegal alien gangs and anchor baby politicians run Chicago. "Dick" Daley is the front to keep the middle and upper class white and black Americans from fleeing. Chicago/Cook County has the highest sales and property taxes in the nation 10.25%. They are finding out that illegal aliens are a financial burden that they can no longer afford. As a result they are paying the price of being a sanctuary as evidenced by Americans of all nationalities running for their lives:

White Flight’ Taking Off in Chicago Suburbs
Quote:

By: Danielle Gordon

Mimicking the patterns of segregation that shaped Chicago, whites in the inner-ring suburbs with growing African American populations are fleeing these areas for towns and villages beyond Cook County.

By 2002, nearly 140,000 whites will have left suburban Cook County since the 1990 census, while more than 131,000 blacks will move in, according to an analysis by The Chicago Reporter. At the same time, the white population in the five collar counties will have grown by 20 percent, or about 375,000 people. The black population, however, will increase by only 50,000.

Trends identified by the Reporter, based on data collected by the national marketing company Claritas Inc., offer a glimpse of what the Chicago area may look like when the next census is released.

They also reflect what Chicago’s neighborhoods experienced long ago: When blacks move in, whites move out.

"People don’t like blacks—plain and simple," said Paul Kleppner, director of Northern Illinois University’s Office for Social Policy Research. "People talk about declining property values, and I don’t doubt some are honestly concerned. But overall, that’s a smoke screen."

The Reporter found that 14 suburbs—13 of them in Cook County—will each lose more than 4,000 white residents by 2002, and blacks are the largest minority in half of those towns. By contrast, 25 suburbs are expected to gain at least 5,000 whites by 2002, and African Americans are the largest minority in only one of them.
