Kankakee, IL – A decision by Wilmington police to transport a Venezuelan immigrant to Kankakee after a troubling incident has sparked controversy. 

The incident occurred when a local woman reported that a man allegedly tried to enter her home and offered candy to her children. The man, who was not identified, communicated in Spanish, expressed his desperation by stating he would “take what he wants” since the government had not provided assistance.

Citing constraints of the SAFE-T Act, which limits circumstances under which individuals can be detained, Wilmington police opted not to arrest the man. Instead, they drove him nearly 20 miles to Kankakee. This response by the police has raised serious questions about the handling of such cases and the broader implications for community safety and immigrant rights.
