    A five-day law enforcement operation targeting suspected members of transnational gangs has reportedly resulted in the arrests of 22 men in Bolingbrook, Joliet, Glendale Heights and Melrose Park.

    Operation Community Shield, which partners local and state law enforcement officers with agents from the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) Homeland Security Investigations unit, began the local effort on April 17.

    The arrestees, who range in age from 18 to 40, were being held today in ICE custody on administrative immigration charges, pending deportation, according to a prepared statement from the federal agency. ICE privacy policies prohibit releasing the names of persons arrested on administrative immigration charges.

    Transnational street gangs are targeted because they have significant numbers of foreign-born members and are frequently involved in human and contraband smuggling, immigration violations and other crimes with a connection to the border.

    As part of this effort, Homeland Security’s National Gang Unit identifies violent street gangs and develops intelligence on their membership, associates, criminal activities and international movements to deter, disrupt and dismantle gang operations.
    The latest roundup took in 18 Mexican nationals, two of whom were previously deported. Two other arrestees are from Guatemala, and one is from Ghana.

    When the paper describes them as "local men" or "transnational" you know they're minorities or illegals. Never fails.

    You couldn't really describe them as "fun-loving Americans" now could you.

    But how about describing them as illegals OR by race? Why the game playing? Oops, forgot - we have to be politically correct lest we insult the gang member. :lol::lol::lol:

    I once asked a police officer who worked at the county jail: Why don't you just put rival gangs inside the same cells? Let them kill each other!!

    He said: Because we (jail guards) are supposed to protect the criminals from killing each other even though your idea would be protecting the innocent citizens from gangs.

    Yup.

    Crime goes where crime can make money.

    And we Americans have made it EASY for criminals, have we not?

    Reap what you sow, Americans.

    Illegal immigrants account for 10% of Nevada state prison budget
    RGJ Special Report: Immigration in Northern Nevada

    The Gang Unit's reports show that most of the Truckee Meadows' 35 criminal street gangs have predominantly Hispanic members. Some illegal immigrants or their American-citizen children are involved in such gangs, but there are no statistics on gang members' immigration status or the immigration status of gang members' parents, police said.

    Illegal immigrants account for 10% of Nevada state prison budget | Reno Gazette-Journal | rgj.com

    There are more problem with illegal immigratin than amnesty can fix. Denial of theses problems wiill not fix the problem. Most crimes in Nevada are illegal immigration related.Refusing the recognize these proplems will only excerbate the problems. Our law enforcement is in denial.
    We need to bombard our representives with our opposition to amnesty and the presence of ilegal aliens in this country.
