The government of Mexico is protesting the deportation of Elvira Arellano.

A Mexican Senate committee passed a measure Wednesday urging President Felipe Calderon to send a diplomatic note to the United States protesting the deportation of an illegal migrant who took refuge in a Chicago church for a year.

"We cannot remain quiet in view of this injustice and must ask for firm action from our authorities," Mexican Sen. Humberto Zazue said.

Are these people for real? You violate us and when we right the wrong you protest.
Go to hell!

City's special ops head replaced

August 23, 2007
The head of the Chicago Police Department’s scandal-plagued Special Operations Section was replaced today, signaling an effort by the interim superintendent to reform the unit and put his own stamp on the department.

Wayne Gulliford, commander of SOS, will swap jobs with Walter Green, commander of field monitoring.

The move comes a few weeks after Interim Supt. Dana V. Starks appeared before City Council and said SOS “needs more supervision.”

Starks also told his staff today that Assistant Deputy Supt. Eugene Williams will replace Frank Limon as chief of organized crime. Limon will continue to serve as acting deputy superintendent of the Bureau of Crime Strategy and Accountability.

Police spokeswoman Monique Bond downplayed the changes, saying they were “temporary lateral changes intended to strengthen the department during this interim period.”

“He is taking these steps because he is ultimately the one who is going to be held accountable,” she said.

Joe DiLeonardi made permanent command changes when he was an acting superintendent in 1979, Bond added.

Still, Mark Donahue, president of the Fraternal Order of Police, said the changes were momentous.

“It’s rather unprecedented for an interim superintendent to make such major moves,” Donahue said. “I can’t tell if it’s proper or not until I hear his rationale. He may know more than I know.”

The elite SOS unit has became an embarrassment for Mayor Daley. Officer Jerome Finnigan and six officers in the unit have been charged with operating a robbery ring from 2002 to 2006 and other officers are under investigation. They have been charged in state court, but federal authorities also are investigating.

At a City Council hearing a few weeks ago, Starks acknowledged a need to rein in members of the elite unit after Ald. Anthony Beale (9th) called the behavior of Finnigan and his co-defendants “another form of abusive power.”

At the time, Starks denied complaints against the SOS officers were swept under the rug, but added “we have to improve our supervision all the way down to the sergeant level” and “let our officers know they are being watched.”

Donahue said it would be unfair to pin the SOS scandal on Guilliford.

“The gentleman who’s in there hasn’t been there that long,” Donahue said. “He has been taking steps to address identified problems at SOS. I don’t think he can be blamed for the scandal.”

Starks became interim superintendent on Aug. 3 when Phil Cline, who presided over a major decline in the city’s homicide rate during his four-year tenure, stepped down.
