Safe Zones Rally: Gov. Rauner, SIGN SB 35!

August 8 @ 4:30 pm - 6:30 pm

Rally to ask Gov. Rauner to sign the Immigration Safe Zones Act (SB 35)

The Illinois General Assembly passed the Immigration Safe Zones Act (SB 35) which, if signed by Governor Rauner, would protect families and ensure the public safety of all people in Illinois. SB 35 addresses the threat of immigration arrests at schools, libraries, hospitals, and courthouses by directing the Illinois Attorney General to develop model policies for these locations to limit their cooperation with ICE. These agencies would also be required to remove any questions regarding immigration status from their forms unless otherwise required by law.

We are running out of time! Governor Rauner only has until August 28 to say whether he will veto or sign the bill. We have heard rumors that he won’t, and we want to make sure he is listening to us. If Governor Rauner cares about the safety of our communities, he must sign the Safe Zones Act, NOW!
