There are two very important bills that have landed on Governor Rauner’s desk: House Bill 3711 which will expand and strengthen hate crime legislation, and Senate Bill 31 (also known as the TRUST ACT), which would prevent law enforcement from taking immigration actions.
Both of these Bills work to protect immigrants, refugees, and undocumented people living in the state of Illinois.
CAIR-Chicago has worked hard in collaboration with our partners and allies in pushing these bills to be now on Governer Rauner’s desk — and now we need your help. Call Governer Rauner’s office TODAY and ask him to sign these bills!
