It is widely believed that Gov. Bruce Rauner (R-IL) plans on signing into law SB31 next Monday. This is a bill that would essentially make the entire state of Illinois a sanctuary state. That is to say, it would forbid any state or local employee or any organization that receives money from the state to assist the federal government in detaining illegal aliens.
This would make every public building in the entire state sanctuary's for illegals: public libraries, DMV offices, state government buildings, college campuses, public school grounds, on and on - the entire state would become a sanctuary for illegals.
Currently, Illinois spends approximately $4.5 Billion dollars annually supporting illegals and their progeny. Also note that Illinois is dead, flat broke; the Land of Lincoln is arguably in worse financial condition than California, and that is saying something.
Now we are going to see a wave of illegals hitting the welfare rolls, depleting the state coffers even more than they already are.
With Republican governors like this, who needs Democrats?
