Make Illinois a Safer Place for Immigrants and Refugees

This petition had 139 supporters

Immigrants and refugees are under attack in this country given the new administration and President Trump's Executive Orders on Immigration. Illinois should boost immigration protection statewide to protect the residents of our state who could be affected by the executive orders. Specifically, this petition is urging Governor Rauner to 

  • File an Amicus Brief to show Illinois stands with Washington and Minnesota as they battle the executive order in the court system and to show that Illinois is a state that also believes in upholding the rights of its residents
  • Support protections for immigrants by expanding the City of Chicago's "sanctuary" status to the entire state
  • Support policies that limit collaboration between immigration authorities and local law enforcement
  • Support the Illinois Coalition for Immigration and Refugee Rights (ICIRR's) Platform for Resistance, Unity, and Respect

Please sign to show your support and urge Governor Rauner to make our state as strong as it can be and as safe as it can be for ALL of our residents.
