Illinois Senator Wants to Criminalize the Reporting of Illegal Aliens

Illinois State Senator Christina Castro is reintroducing a bill to make it illegal for landlords to report illegal immigrants.

Last legislative session, Castro introduced legislation to prevent landlords from reporting illegal immigrants. This bill was able to pass both houses but was ultimately stopped in its tracks by ex-Governor Bruce Rauner when he vetoed it.

However, with a Democratic Governor J.B. Pritzker in office, Castro has revived her bill now that she has legitimate chance of signing it into law.

Castro made her case for the illegal immigration bill:

This bill is to allow our immigrant communities to feel safe and not retaliated against based on what their immigration status is.

Republican Senator Dale Righter countered Castro’s bill, saying that it completely blocks landlords from reporting illegal immigrants to authorities.

Righter expressed his disbelief:

You are telling your landlords ‘no, you can’t say a word to anyone in law enforcement about that individual.

Righter continued, “Is there any other area that you can think of in state policy where you would so tie a landlord’s hands?”

The bill is now in the Illinois House waiting for a vote.

Curiously, Illinois is considering its own rent control laws at the moment. Rent control is not only notorious for creating housing shortages, but also for deteriorating the quality of current housing stock. In essence, rent control can turn otherwise decent building complexes into ghettoes.

Combine this with a law that prohibits landlords from asking tenants about their immigration status, and we have all the makings for the creation of immigrant ghettoes. These could easily morph into the infamous “no-go zones” that we see throughout countries in Europe.

Even when they’re out of power, globalist Democrats will find ways to subvert American institutions and rebuild momentum for upcoming federal races.

It’s abundantly clear that the modern-day Democratic Party worships at the altar of mass migration.
