nonpartisan? He is a dem.

Quote
Vallas was a Democratic candidate for Lieutenant Governor of Illinois in the 2014 elections.[2] His running mate was Democratic incumbent Gov. Pat Quinn. Quinn selected Vallas to share the ticket in 2014, when a new rule took effect requiring candidates for Illinois governor and lieutenant governor to run together in both the primary and general election. He and Quinn lost the general election.

Quote
They were defeated in the general election by the Republican ticket of Bruce Rauner and Evelyn Sanguinetti. The general election took place on November 4, 2014.

If he held any political office in Chicago, it's pretty much a presumption.

Enforcing deportation orders is enforcing the law, and is called "arresting" people. Don't like the law? Get it changed, a simple three-step process: bill passes the House; bill passes the Senate; bill is signed into law by the President.
