Default Curran looks to deport illegal immigrants


Curran looks to deport illegal immigrants
"To put it perspective, there have been 14 murders in the county so far this year, and half of those have been committed by illegal immigrants." Lake County Sheriff Mark Curran
The Lake County Sheriff’s Office is working with the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement Service to deport illegal aliens who are in the Lake County Jail for criminal offenses. A recent jail audit found at least 20 percent of the jail’s population were in the country illegally.
During a press conference on Thursday, Sheriff Mark Curran talked about the problem of illegal immigrants who are responsible for committing serious crimes. The sheriff’s office is currently seeking 287(g) status from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security for its correctional officers, which would facilitate the deportation process for jail inmates who are illegal immigrants.
"You cannot fight for crime victims and ignore the illegal immigration problem," said Curran. "You cannot fight the war against drunk drivers and ignore the illegal immigration problem. You cannot fight the drug war and ignore the illegal immigration problem. You cannot pretend to care about all the children that die from gang and drug violence and ignore the illegal immigration problem."
