Police report information is provided by local police departments. Charges are not evidence of guilt. They are a record of police actions on a given day, and persons charged with a crime are presumed innocent until proven guilty in court. If you or a family member are charged or cited and the case is subsequently adjudicated, we encourage you to notify the editor. We will verify and report the outcome.

Exactly right. Local Police have no tools available to them to hold and deport subjects. If it is a violent felony sometimes the feds will then get involved.
Stewart Levine January 16, 2013 at 11:22 AM
Well, what we need is people to organize community groups that can lobby for some new legislation to change that, we need to deport these criminals who flagrantly violate our laws in our face. We need to protect our communities, jobs, kids, and property. If you think entitlements are bad now wait till this further clogs our criminal justice system up with the crimes they commit, and their offspring commit when they realize it is easier to steal at Kohl's or join a Gang, than mow lawns or work at taco bell. Social Security is already broke and Many baby boomers will not get their Social Security Checks if this cycle is allowed to continue. Under current law, citizens can form militia's or other citizen activist groups that can work with law enforcement and the states attorneys office, to grand jury indict these illegal aliens, and detain them until ICE can get there, that way the local police can work on other calls. Similar to a citizen's arrest, if the Sheriff would deputize groups of ex-military, and ex-law enforcement, hunters, and sportsmen we could round them up and put them on school buses out of here.

Or better yet, we should microchip them, so they can be tracked via satellite GPS.
Tom Koz January 17, 2013 at 09:09 AM
I have utmost respect for local Law Enforcement. So it seems, the problem that we have is with the current US administration (obama), refusal to enforce our US border laws. SO anybody that is injured or killed by somebody who is in this country Illegally, who do you have to blame?? And IF you voted for obama, the reason why your friend/relative is injured/dead, by someone here illegally, LOOK IN THE MIRROR!

Do illegals bother you guys that much? Are you guys losing sleep over this?
