Paperwork fumble in Cook County led to illegal immigrant killing Kenosha woman
WITI-TV, KENOSHA — When a Kenosha County woman was killed on Memorial Day one thing was clear, it was completely preventable. AS FOX6 began investigating to find out who could have prevented it, we faced a flurry of finger pointing. No one wanted to take responsibility, and no one close to the case would talk on camera.
If you could sketch a love story and put a face on it, a portrait of teenage sweethearts would appear. It was a love so deep, fulfilling, and complete that losing it would be like losing the air from young lungs.
One man who never should have been where he was could destroy the soul of a family. Jorge Dominguez is an illegal immigrant with an arrest record, and no license to drive. Police caught him two hours after the crash that killed Dawn Glogovsky. Dominguez fled from the scene of the accident.
If you think this is about the injustice of an illegal immigrant killing an innocent woman, it's worse than that. In 2008 Dominguez' wife called Burlington Police afraid he was going to kill her. FOX6 Anchor Brad Hicks asked her what she told police that night she said, "He was illegal that he was illegally in the United States."
The Burlington Police Department notified Immigration and Customs Enforcement(ICE), but Dominguez didn't show up in the federal database. So a few days after the incident Dominguez was back on the streets.
It didn't take long for him to be back in a cell at the Burlington Police Station. Over the next six months he was cited, arrested, questioned, fingerprinted. He became a familiar face to law enforcement, but ICE and police never put two and two together.
Kim Gebauer, sister of Dawn Glogovsky, said, "There were so many opportunities to remove this person from the county, to make sure he didn't continue to create havoc wherever he went."
Jorge Dominguez was arrested again in Racine County in May of 2009, and that time ICE slapped an immigration detainer on him. He was finally caught and his days in the US were numbered, but something that ultimately led to the death of Dawn Glogovsky happened.
Cook County in Illinois staked a claim on Dominguez. They wanted to see him extradited for an old drug charge before he was deported. On July 4th the Racine County Jail sent a communication to Cook County advising them Jorge Dominguez was illegal, and had an immigration hold from ICE.
Former Waukesha District Attorney Paul Bucher knows how the system works. He said, "They're telling them, place a hold on this subject when you pick him up from our jail. ICE wants him."
Three days later an internal memo says Cook County called, aware Dominguez was on a detainer, and requested it. A faxed copy confirmed on July 7th the detainer was sent to the Cook County Sheriff's 24-hour lockup in Maywood. Their job was to notify ICE before he could be released.
Two days later Jorge Dominguez walked out of the Cook County lock up a free man, ICE was never informed.
According to ICE, and the State Attorney's Office in Illinois the Sheriff's Department in Cook County is responsible. Bucher says, "He's in the system, and they're part of the system. Therefore they're responsible to notify."
The Cook County Sheriff's Department claims it never received a detainer for Dominguez, and never requested one either.
The Sheriff's Spokesman says, "There was no detainer here...so there is nothing to investigate."
What they can't or won't explain, aside form the Racine teletype notifying them Dominguez was illegal, the internal memo at ICE that says Cook County called for the detainer, and the copy of the faxed detainer itself, is that in the Cook County court file for Jorge Dominguez is the immigration detain the Sheriff's Department swears never existed.
The day after it was sent to the Sheriff's 24 hour lockup in Maywood where Dominguez was being held, the detainer was still in Cook County. It was faxed again by the courthouse warrant clerk. Dawn's Husband Frank Glogovsky says, "They knew he was an illegal alien, and they didn't do anything. And I know if they would have, she would still be here."
Glogovsky's Attorney Jim Gatske believes it was no mistake, and that reckless indifference was to blame. He says, "They had made a decision at some point that immigration issues were not something they were going to be worried about enforcing."
Cook was the first county in the country to declare itself an official sanctuary, a place where police are not allowed to ask about a person's immigration status.
In 2008 the Cook County Sheriff's Spokesman, the same spokesman who insists there is nothing to investigate, was quoted in a Chicago news website saying "We do not work with immigration."
He also claims the Sheriff's Department has "not had any issues with any prior detainer cases."
An internal ICE e-mail disputes that. It says, "This is not the first time this has happened at Cook...We have subjects that get transferred to Cook County and the detainers get lost."
When pressed for answers about this the spokesman tried to deflect my questions with a personal attack. He said, "I thought you'd said you were a reporter, but I see you say you find some things hard to believe."
FOX6 tried to catch up with the spokesman in person, but his office said he was going to be unavailable.
On July 9, 2009 while Dawn and Frank Glogovsky were getting ready for their son's weekend swim meet, Jorge Dominguez was set free from the Cook County lockup.
At that moment the clock began counting down the final days of Dawn Glogovsky's life to the moment when two paths crossed in a split second.
Dominguez is now in the Kenosha County jail, and once again ICE has an immigration detainer on him. His trial is set for March of next year. He faces nine felonies, homicide by intoxicated use of a vehicle, and fatal hit and run.

"There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn't an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag, and this excludes the red flag, which symbolizes all wars against liberty and civilization, just as much as it excludes any foreign flag of a nation to which we are hostile...We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language...and we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people." --Theodore Roosevelt
"This nation is in danger of becoming a Third World nightmare with all the corruption, disease, illiteracy, violence and balkanization known all over the world. We need a 10-year moratorium on all immigration to catch our collective breath and we need deportation of over 10 million illegal aliens in a slow and orderly fashion." --Ed Garrison
“The 1987 amnesty was a failure; rather than reducing illegal immigration, it led to an increase,” FAIR stated. “Any new amnesty measure will further weaken respect for our immigration laws. Therefore, all amnesty measures must be defeated.” --Frosty Wooldridge
