Handful Of Illinois Republicans Look To Repeal TRUST Act

Just days after it was signed by Governor Bruce Rauner, some Illinois Republicans are already trying to repeal a controversial immigration law.

At least six GOP lawmakers are on board with a measure to repeal the TRUST Act, which limits the actions of local law enforcement in dealing with federal immigration issues.

Jacksonville Representative C.D. Davidsmeyer is one of those signing on to the proposal to repeal the law, which critics say turns Illinois into a “sanctuary state.”
