The Left isn’t too concerned with ensuring safety and prosperity in America. Nothing is more important to them than their agenda.
And this top Democrat threatened American lives with just one stroke of a pen.
Take a look around you. Do you see the toll the Biden administration has taken on this country.
Inflation is still high, interest rates are increasingly high, and the dollar is getting weaker.
That’s just the economic side of it. There’s also the fact that Biden has effectively disarmed the American military by sending billions of dollars in ammunition to Ukraine to fight a proxy war with Russia.
And who can forget the millions of illegal immigrants that have poured across the border in recent years?
Well, guess what…now those illegal immigrants can arrest you – at least in Illinois.
Illinois Gov. J.B. Pritzker, D., signed legislation allowing non-US citizens to work as police officers in the state, infuriating critics who called the prospect of foreigners arresting American residents “a fundamentally bad idea.”
Under Illinois House Bill 3751, being a police officer in the state will no longer require US citizenship.
Despite strong opposition from Republican MPs and notable police organizations, the bill was passed by the Democratic governor on Friday and will take effect on January 1, 2024.
The bill “provides that an individual who is not a citizen but is legally authorized to work in the United States under federal law is authorized to apply for the position of police officer, subject to all requirements and limitations, other than citizenship, to which other applicants are subject,” according to HB3751. Non-US citizens must also be able to obtain, carry, purchase, or otherwise possess a firearm under federal law in order to apply for the job.
According to the measure, immigrants who remain in the nation under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) Act are also eligible to seek for a career in law enforcement.
Non-US citizens are currently prohibited from serving as police officers or deputies under federal law.
Over the weekend, Republican Illinois Rep. Mary Miller took to Twitter to express her displeasure over the new rule, stating that “no sane state would allow foreign nationals to arrest their citizens.”
“At 5 p.m. yesterday, when no one was paying attention, Pritzker signed a bill to allow illegal immigrants to become police officers, giving non-citizens the power to arrest citizens in our state,” she tweeted. “No sane state would allow foreign nationals to arrest their citizens, this is madness!”
Rep. Lauren Boebert, R-Colo., tweeted following news of the bill’s passing, “In the state of Illinois, illegals can now become police officers. Yes, you heard that right.”
“People who are breaking the law by their presence here can now arrest American citizens. You know the other blue states are watching and getting ready to implement this idea as soon as they can!” she continued. “We either address this border crisis or allow our country to descend further into a Leftist dystopia.”
The bill was also slammed by the Fraternal Order of Police (FOP) after it passed in the Democratic-controlled state House earlier this month.
“What message does this legislation send when it allows people who do not have legal status to become the enforcers of our laws?” the group said in a statement to ABC20. “This is a potential crisis of confidence in law enforcement at a time when our officers need all the public confidence they can get.”
This is banana republic stuff.
