CLUB FED’S FUTURE JEOPARDIZED OVER PRIVATE CONTRACTOR USE
Amnesty advocates are getting even more creative when it comes to fighting the enforcement of immigration law, but now it may have turned the battle over an elaborate and outrageously expensive 800-bed illegal immigrant detention center in our favor – at least for now.
Seeing that the usual tactics weren’t working, Chicago’s immigrant rights advocates joined local opposition and successfully persuaded the Democratic leaders of Illinois to try banning Crete, Ill. – where the detention facility is to be built – from working with private contractors on the project.
The proposed ban amends an existing policy prohibiting the state and municipalities from using private companies to run prisons to also include detention centers. It cleared the Illinois Senate and could come up for a House vote this week. Gov. Pat Quinn, an ardent support of pro-illegal immigrant legislation – has already hinted at his support.
OBAMA’S ILLEGAL-IMMIGRANT UNCLE FIGHTING DEPORTATION
Drunk-driving Uncle Omar – Barack Obama’s illegal immigrant uncle – may never be deported.
Immigration experts are predicting that 67-year-old Onyango Obama, who nearly crashed into a police cruiser while barreling though an intersection with a blood alcohol content of .14 in August 2011, will appeal the 20-year-old deportation order and apply for asylum on the grounds that the Kenyan embassy was bombed by al-Qaeda in 1998 and that hostility toward the U.S. would put him in danger.
Reportedly, hundreds of Obamas relatives live in western Kenya without a problem though the same logic was used to halt the deportation of Obama’s illegal immigrant aunt, Zeituni, in 2008 who continues to live in public housing and collect $700 in monthly disability checks.
