Rauner did this – Homeland Security

By:  Diane Benjamin When Jose Rodriguez was arrested last week for the fatal accident his fingerprints were run through the FBI database.  That tipped off Homeland Security who issued an immigration detainer for him. Because Illinois’ former governor signed the Trust Act, McLean County could not hold him for ICE.  The retainer was signed by […]

Isn’t this special

By:  Diane Benjamin Yesterday Alderman Jenn Carrillo posted a video on her Alderman Facebook page instructing illegals on what to do if ICE comes to their house or business.  She claims she has been advocating for illegals for 10 years.  She must think illegals all speak Spanish, she used both Spanish and English.  Jenn is […]

Wasting time doing nothing

By:  Diane Benjamin Government should operate on facts, not feelings.  The illegal immigration issue won’t be solved in Bloomington for the same reason it isn’t solved in DC.  It has nothing to do with people not being able to make decisions.  They have decided: To some laws matter, to others they don’t. The people camping […]
