Joining a growing list of local law enforcement officials across the U.S., Lake County Sheriff Mark Curran on Wednesday urged Congress to adopt federal immigration reforms that would legalize the nation's estimated 10.6 million illegal immigrants.

Curran's stance contradicts his previous image of being tough on illegal immigration. The former Democrat, who switched to the Republican Party in December, emphasized that he is still in favor of deporting illegal immigrants convicted of murder, rape or other major crimes.

Unfortunately the majority of Americans are against any reform that includes amnesty. Further more over 70% of American voters feel that we do not do enough to secure our borders.

54% of Illegals are skirting E-verify. A tamper proof ID is a requirement of any "reform". There will be no "reform", aka amnesty any time soon.
