You have the key to open your doors, not the Government – Know your rights

Illinois (ECWd) –

Considering the massive amount of misinformation circulating the airways and about people’s businesses being closed by the Government and threats of losing their license if they open back up, we urge people to learn what their rights are.  Below is a brief video explaining the three most common issues we are seeing play out and below are key documents provided that outline what the law actually is on the matter.

A key important piece of information is to know, executive orders ARE NOT law.  So when you see a law that outlines you can lose your license for violations of law, understand that DOES NOT include executive orders as they are not laws.

 

Important Health Department statutes pertaining to their obligations and your due process rights.

 20 ILCS 2305/2(b)Subject to the provisions of subsection (c), the Department may order a person or group of persons to be quarantined or isolated or may order a place to be closed and made off-limits to the public to prevent the probable spread of a dangerously contagious or infectious disease, including non-compliant tuberculosis patients, until such time as the condition can be corrected or the danger to the public health eliminated or reduced in such a manner that no substantial danger to the public’s health any longer exists.

20 ILCS 2305/2(c) Except as provided in this Section, no person or a group of persons may be ordered to be quarantined or isolated and no place may be ordered to be closed and made off-limits to the public except with the consent of the person or owner of the place or upon the prior order of a court of competent jurisdiction.

  1. In the WJPF broadcast, the host referred to having obtained confidential information from local officials around the state. Accordingly, local bodies are being “quietly informed” in back room discussions. With court proceedings ongoing in the same timeframe, agency employees “quietly informing” local bodies of the state’s intent to withold allocations flaunts prejudice at the courts. Help up front, please!

  2. Thank you for your information regarding the state statutes mentioned in this message. They really helped me to understand my rights!

    Every voting member of your Illinois household should send a similar message to our state’s officials:

    Dear Committee Members,
    As a citizen of the state of Illinois, I strongly urge you to reject Governor Pritzker’s plan to extend the stay at home order. This was originally put in place in March 2020 to help flatten the curve and to help our hospitals get ready for COVID 19 patients and the care they would need. We have done that. At this point, there is no point to continuing the stay at home order. We cannot keep our economy shut down any longer or until a vaccine is developed. It is unconstitutional to do so under Illinois Statutes 20 ILCS 2305/2(b)and 20 ILCS 2305/2(c)

    20 ILCS 2305/2(b) Subject to the provisions of subsection (c), the Department may order a person or group of persons to be quarantined or isolated or may order a place to be closed and made off-limits to the public to prevent the probable spread of a dangerously contagious or infectious disease, including non-compliant tuberculosis patients, until such time as the condition can be corrected or the danger to the public health eliminated or reduced in such a manner that no substantial danger to the public’s health any longer exists.
    20 ILCS 2305/2(c) Except as provided in this Section, no person or a group of persons may be ordered to be quarantined or isolated and no place may be ordered to be closed and made off-limits to the public except with the consent of the person or owner of the place or upon the prior order of a court of competent jurisdiction.

    Due process under the law must be adhered to, rather than a unilateral, unconstitutional decree by the governor. ALL businesses are essential, not just the ones that have been deemed as such under the stay at home order. If we can shop at Costco or Target, we can shop at a local boutique or get our hair cut at a local salon. Both pose al risk. People need to get back to work and provide for their families. We don’t want government stimulus checks. We want the dignity to work for ourselves and make our own money. We want restaurants, salons, and all small businesses to reopen. We want our freedoms back. We need to reopen Illinois now, just like so many other neighboring states have done. We will be watching carefully as the decision of this committee is rendered.
    Respectfully,
    Name
    Address.

  3. I’m curious, I know that Pritzker didn’t get an extension of the original Emergency Management Statute. Lake County has a snitch line and the Sheriff stands by it. I’m encouraged by the documentation you have above regarding businesses opening. How should that be tweaked so I can show the Sheriff that the snitch line isn’t relevant and that he should uphold the IL Constitution as well as the U.S. Constitution?

  4. Calvin Coolidge:stated “Unless bureaucracy is constantly resisted it breaks down representative government … having authority over everybody and being responsible to nobody” YEP!

  5. Illinois state govt doesn’t have the lawful authority to bankrupt businesses nor can they suspend our property rights
