Ives Calls For Repeal of the Trust Act

For Immediate Release 
Ives Calls For Repeal of the Trust Act
As Gov, I won’t pretend not to be in charge. I will lead this charge. With Republican colleagues like John Cabello and downstate Democrats this is doable and should be done.
 
December 7, 2017 – This morning, Representative Ives will held a joint press conference with Brian McCann, the brother of a man dragged to his death by an undocumented immigrant, to call for a repeal of the ‘Trust Act.’
Ives Remarks:
 

To date, there have been nearly 3,400 shootings and almost 650 homicides in the city of Chicago alone. As leaders, we should be focused on protecting families, not criminals.

Governor Rauner betrayed people, like Brian McCann, who is still awaiting justice for his brother, Dennis McCann. He betrayed law-abiding families in favor of political pandering.

By signing The Trust Act, the governor made all of us less safe. I am ready to lead the charge against the pandering political class. Illinoisans from all walks of life want the security that comes from knowing violent felons will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.

Ruling Class types like Rauner and Rahm are very cavalier with the lives of others people. They use people as the means to their political ends.

Rauner said he would meet with victims families before signing sanctuary state. Another lie. Another betrayal. He never did.

I’m a pro-legal-immigration conservative. America as a beacon of freedom and opportunity for people the world over is a good thing and should be maintained. But we cannot be without the rule of law.

Rauner and Rahm think they are above the law and thus can decide who has to follow it and who doesn’t.

Sanctuary state protects those who violate the law expense of those who follow the law.

Sanctuary state pits law enforcement agencies against one another rather than encouraging cooperation in the interests of making communities safer.

Sanctuary state should be repealed. As Gov, I won’t pretend not to be in charge. I will lead this charge. With Republican colleagues like John Cabello and downstate Democrats this is doable and should be done.
