There Will Be No ICE In Illinois.

https://will.illinois.edu/news/story/pritzker-says-new-laws-make-illinois-firewall-against-trump-on-immigration

Gov. J.B. Pritzker has signed a series of laws meant to protect immigrants in Illinois. The Democrat says it’s a direct response to the rhetoric and actions of President Donald Trump.

Pritzker signed three bills. One prohibits state and local police from working with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, or ICE, to remove people who are undocumented.

Another bans private immigrant detention centers from being built in Illinois — officials in the town of Dwight were moving to allow such a facility earlier this year.

“We will not allow private entities to profit off of the intolerance of this president,” Pritzker said Friday.


The third piece of legislation will allow undocumented and transgender college students to apply for state financial aid. (Federal financial aid still requires proof of citizenship and, for people whose gender at birth was male, registration for the draft.)

Citing the Illinois Student Assistance Commission, the governor’s office says that could open up Illinois college grants to an additional 3,500 people.

The legislation is House Bill 1637 (barring ICE cooperation), House Bill 2040 (banning private detention centers), and House Bill 2691 (financial aid, known as the RISE Act).

5. On balance, the dark side of Illinois is the Republican Ricketts, 95% owners of the Cubs.

They've made Wrigleyville an adult disneyworld, and then donate their wealth to Republicans in Indiana and Wisconsin, Trump.

They're also a mixed bag family:

Pete Ricketts is governor of Nebraska.
Laura is a gay rights activiist.
Tom runs the Cubs, and
Todd runs the Finance Committee of the RNC, raised over $50 million secretly under the NeverTrump groups for megadonors who didn't want their names associated with Trump.

They used to run DNAinfo but shut it and its affiliates down after employees wanted to unionize.
Their EndingSpending group tries to shut down earmarks in Congress.

That they're not consistent in their money use makes them weirdly dangerous.

11. I disliked him by the time I got to "Republican"

I hated his guts when I got to "95% owner of the Cubs."

21. There are a few liberal billionaires who care about other people

Most billionaires are selfish Rightwingers, however.

23. This is true. However, I hear a lot of bashing of the Governor based on his financial status.

I thought I was responding to another example of that bashing.

3. Nice Picture of Lori Lightfoot!

I assume that's her, right? Getting sworn in?

And, stars, is it something to have Democratic governors in key states again. Thank you, Gov. Pritzker!!

6. Yes, she's at the podium. Also, left to right, Pritzker, Tammy Duckworth, Dick Durbin, Rahm Emanuel.

I can't identify the rest, offhand.

Ram's wife is there. Lori Lightfoot's partner and their daughter are on the other end.

In fact, you're way ahead of me. I recognized both senators and Emanuel (oof, not my fave) right away but didn't know what Pritzker looked like. Thanks!

18. I am proud of my governor and proud of my state.

Let's see what that orange thing will do to retaliate against us. You know he will.

And let's not have any railing against billionaires. This is the action of a REAL billionaire, trumpy!

26. I know this for sure - Trump will NOT target a Pritzker.

He does NOT want to have that fight.

27. I'm hoping he won't be targeting Chicago, either. That would bring Obama and his people down on him.

I can't imagine under what pretext he'd fight Pritzker. He's backed off for two weeks, which gives other governors and sanctuary cities (blue) time to pass laws and put similar state level resistance in place.

All this would have been unnecessary if ICE were run by professionals and not cult ideology.
