Illinois Governor J.B. Pritzker (D) final week signed a plan into legislation that enables international nationals with work permits, a few of whom are unlawful aliens, to grow to be law enforcement officials within the state.
Federal legislation presently forbids non-US residents to function law enforcement officials and deputies.
The new legislation states that “… an individual against whom immigration action has been deferred by the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services under the federal DACA process is allowed to apply for the position of police officer, deputy sheriff, or special policeman, subject to specified requirements,” based on a abstract of the laws.
The laws was handed in June by the Illinois House and Senate, the place Democrats maintain a supermajority.
Meanwhile in California, Gov. Gavin Newsom signed a invoice into legislation final yr which authorizes recently-arrived border crossers to become cops and police American residents.
The legislation solely requires that officers have a federally issued work allow, that are often given out by the Biden administration to unlawful aliens launched into the US after crossing the southern border.
Illinois Rep. Mary Miller (R) raged towards the brand new legislation, tweeting over the weekend: “At 5 p.m. yesterday, when no one was paying attention, Pritzker signed a bill to allow illegal immigrants to become police officers, giving non-citizens the power to arrest citizens in our state,” including “No sane state would allow foreign nationals to arrest their citizens, this is madness!”
“People who are breaking the law by their presence here can now arrest American citizens. You know the other blue states are watching and getting ready to implement this idea as soon as they can!” Miller continued. “We either address this border crisis or allow our country to descend further into a Leftist dystopia.“
