SACRAMENTO CA – Wednesday morning, U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions said California passing three state laws that defy federal immigration laws. "It's a rejection of the law, it's a rejection of the law," Session said at a law enforcement conference at the state's capital city. "The United States is a 'nation-state,' not an idea."

"How dare you, how dare you needlessly endanger our law enforcement officers?" Sessions said in response to Oakland's mayor defying immigration law and notifying illegals that federal immigration authorities were planning to conduct a law enforcement action to arrest illegals with criminal records. 

Tuesday, Sessions Department of Justice filed lawsuits to stop the implementation of three state laws that defy federal immigration laws.

Chicago's Mayor Rahm Emanuel is lining up with immigrant defenders like the Oakland mayor. A new ID card Emanuel is preparing to offer immigrants could be used to register non-citizens to vote, some are saying. 

Could Chicago or Illinois be next on Sessions' list of states that encourage defiance of federal immigration laws?

SB 31 signed into law by Governor Bruce Rauner and passed by the Democrat majority in the Illinois General Assembly protects immigrants by requiring federal law enforcement to obtain a warrant in order to have local officials transfer immigrant criminals into federal law enforcement.

  1. We can only hope. But Rauner supports DL’s to illegals as well as Medicaid.
    And certainly the Democrats do.
    The real hope is if Ives gets elected then there will be some actual cooperation. But her election will not be an easy task.
