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.

Greg Abbott Signs Executive Order Keeping Violent Criminals from Going Back on the Streets During the Wuhan Crisis
After the Wuhan Virus was confirmed in several Texas jails in the last week, Texas Governor Greg Abbott issued an executive order on March 29, 2020 that makes it more difficult for several inmates to be let out on “no-cost, personal recognizance bonds.”
Abbott tweeted, “Today I issued an Executive Order preventing [email protected] of dangerous criminals from prisons & jails. We want to prevent the spread of #COVID19 among prison staff & inmates. But, releasing dangerous criminals in the streets is not the solution. #txlege #coronavirus”
Today I issued an Executive Order preventing [email protected] of dangerous criminals from prisons & jails.

Several cases of the Wuhan Virus were discovered in the Dallas County Jail and Harris County Jail last week, two of the state’s largest jails. In addition, a handful of cases were confirmed in state prisons. According to NBC DFW, the virus’ outbreak was “followed by demands to reduce the inmate populations by releasing, immediately and without bond or judicial delay, those held on misdemeanor crimes or awaiting trial on misdemeanor crimes. Some also called for non-violent felons to also be released on no-cost bonds.”
Abbott said Sunday that “releasing dangerous criminals makes the state even less safe” and issued a proclamation to prevent judges, and others, from releasing some inmates without a paid, cash bond.
In his executive order, Abbott declared that a person convicted of a crime that involved or threatened physical violence, or a person arrested for such a crime backed by probable cause, or a person with a criminal history of violent crime, cannot get out of jail on a no-cost personal recognizance bond.
With a PR bond, a defendant is released without having to post any money for his or her bond on the promise they’ll show up to their next court date.
Instead of virtue signaling and buying into the criminal justice reform movement’s desire to foment anarcho-tyranny, Abbott has held his ground by promoting public order.
A crisis like the Wuhan Virus pandemic does not need to be exacerbated by opening up the prison floodgates.
This is one case where American policymakers should use logic not emotion to craft prison policies in times of a pandemic.
Failure to do so will put the U.S. on the road to institutional failure.
