Immigration Sweep Concerns

There were many calls Monday to the 23 Newsroom regarding a roundup of illegal aliens in the area.

We followed up on all specific reports; all of them claimed there was no such activity.

Late afternoon, Belvidere Police Chief Jan Noble said federal officials and other local law enforcement confirmed there was no such activity in the Rockford or Belvidere area Monday.

He said it was simply "a rumor."
