Ives Trying to Overturn TRUST Act

Governor Bruce Rauner’s primary opponent isn’t just challenging him on the ballot. Republican Representative Jeanne Ives is also filing legislation in an attempt to overturn a law signed by Rauner.

Ives wants a repeal of the TRUST Act, the legislation which limits the role of local law enforcement agencies in dealing with federal immigration cases.

Ives says it makes Illinois a sanctuary state and makes Illinoisans less safe by putting them at greater risk of being the victim of a crime committed by illegal immigrants.
