CHICAGO TRIBUNE
— ANTI-AMERICAN: Rauner signs immigration, automatic voter registration bills into law – Kim Geiger
http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/local/politics/ct-bruce-rauner-immigration-voting-met-0829-20170828-story.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Rauner entered a bill signing ceremony at Mi Tierra restaurant in Little Village to cheers from at least 200 supporters of the measure. Outside, an opponent carried a sign that said, “Illinois victim families say no sanctuary state.” . . . Before the governor inked his signature to the bill, Lt. Gov. Evelyn Sanguinetti, a fluent Spanish speaker, kicked off the speeches with remarks in both English and Spanish in which she insisted that, “contrary to popular belief, this bill does not turn Illinois into a sanctuary state.” Instead, she said, “it will help us keep violent criminals behind bars.”)

CHICAGO PATCH
— DIERSEN HEADLINE: ANTI-AMERICAN: Rauner dumps the all those in Illinois who are Republican and panders to all those in Illinois who are anti-Trump, anti-Protestant, anti-conservative, anti-Republican, anti-American, anti-White, anti-male, anti-older people, anti-rich people, anti-gun owners, anti-German Americans, anti-draft avoiders (except Bill Clinton), and/or anti-those whose ancestors have been in America longer than their ancestors.
https://patch.com/illinois/chicago/illinois-makes-police-detention-immigrants-illegal
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Some have said the law will make Illinois a so-called “sanctuary state” by limiting the role of local authorities in enforcing federal immigration laws. The law comes amid immigration crackdowns that have led to arrests statewide. Former GOP congressman and conservative talk radio host Joe Walsh reacted on Twitter, calling Rauner’s decision a “slap in the face” to citizens.)
