    Thank you for your email regarding the proposed sanctuary resolution. Please be advised that I oppose it and will oppose it if and when it is presented to the full county board. I have said that publicly and there should be no confusion as to my opinion. Your comments regarding my un-American vote and so forth are inappropriate, but understandable if you misinterpreted my comments.

    Your assessments of my comments and the meaning behind them are incorrect. No one has done it my way, if they did we would not have over 10 million illegal immigrants in the United States. Federal law places immigration at that level and does not give any other government the authority to change, revise, or amend federal immigration law. I did not state that Cook County should not enforce federal law. My point was that if the proponents want to change the law, it is only the Congress which has the authority. I basically asserted that if the people who want such a sanctuary created, the correct place to address it would be the United States Congress, not the county board Its not a "cop out", its the law.

    The sponsor knew I could not attend the scheduled meeting, due to a family problem, and scheduled it any way. The real forum is the county board and the sponsor does not have the required votes to pass this resolution. If you wish it defeated, contact the commissioners who support it. I do not support it.


    Thank you for your input

    My reply from Cook County. We need to really bombard them, with our calls and emails, as the vote is so close!.

    Thank you for your email. I have opposed the proposed Cook County Sanctuary Resolution. The majority of the Board is opposed, but the numbers are close.

    Dear Mr Silvestri

    As a fellow American citizen I plead with you to not do something that can and will cause irreparable damage to your county and our country. Our country is based on law not grant special privileges to certain groups. Illegal immigration is against the law. Please tell me that you are not a city that supports law breaking? I vehemently oppose any resolution that would make or even appear to make a so called "sanctuary" county. Thank you for your support and consideration!
