Rauner will sign sanctuary state bill for Illinois

Bruce Rauner is making a giant mistake by letting Illinois become a sanctuary state. He will sign a bill on Monday that will do just that.

From the Chicago Sun-Times:
The immigration legislation would prohibit police in Illinois from detaining or arresting a person based on their immigration status or on federal immigration detainer. It would allow law enforcement officials, however, to detain a person with a judge's order.

The bill passed with bipartisan support and was supported by faith leaders, law enforcement and businesses. But Republicans initially opposed the measure, arguing it will cause a conflict with federal laws.
Who speaks up for the ordinary taxpayer in Illinois?
