Rauner To Sign Immigration Legislation
Illinois is about to become a sanctuary state. Governor Rauner's office yesterday said the governor will sign a new law next week that stops state law enforcement agencies from asking people about their immigration status or holding people simply for an immigration violation so they can be turned over to federal agents. Local police departments and sheriff's offices could still set their own policies. A number of suburban law enforcement officials say they support the proposal, but a number of conservatives are furious.
