Illinois Governor Signs Immigrant Protection Bills

Three new Illinois laws are aimed at protecting illegal immigrants in the state. One of the measures puts an end to any development of private, for-profit detention centers in the state. It also prevents financial transactions by local governments with such a facility except to provide basic services. Governor J.B. Pritzker also signed a bill keeping state and local law enforcement agencies from enforcing immigration laws on behalf of the federal government. Students in the country illegally were also provided access to state-funded financial aid.
