WOODSTOCK, Ill. (AP) - U.S. Sen. Mark Kirk wants a convicted serial burglar and cyberstalker who’s being held by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement in McHenry County deported to China.

The Northwest Herald in Crystal Lake reports (https://bit.ly/1LNLdhG ) Jicheng Liu was convicted and sentenced to eight years in prison after a search of his residence uncovered more than 300 packages and 87 garage door openers that had been stolen in Chicago.

Kirk, a Republican seeking re-election, wrote a letter to U.S. Secretary of Homeland Security Jeh Johnson explaining that Liu stole items then cyberstalked, harassed and intimidated his victims by sending them items such as food or prostitutes.

Kirk says some of his victims have expressed concern that Liu, a Chinese native, will eventually seek asylum in the United States and that Liu’s removal should be a priority.
