Non-Citizens To Have Arrest Powers As Police Officers In Illinois –

By John Kraft & Kirk Allen

On June 1, 2023

ILLINOIS (ECWd) –

House Bill 3571 passed both Houses this past week with Senate Floor Amendment 1.

SA1 permits counties and municipalities to hire non-citizens as deputy sheriffs and police officers in the same manner as hiring U.S. citizens, as long as they are: legally authorized under federal law to work in the United States and is authorized under federal law to obtain, carry, or purchase or otherwise possess a firearm, or who is an individual against whom immigration action has been deferred by the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services under the federal Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) process and is authorized under federal law to obtain, carry, or purchase or otherwise possess a firearm”

What this means in Illinois, is that you may soon see non-US citizens wearing police badges, with arrest powers over US citizens. Senator Rose spoke against its passage, suggesting it would violate the United States Constitution.

Senate passed the bill with SA1 on May 18, and the House concurred on May 19.

The only Senate “NO” votes were from Anderson, Bennett, Bryant, Chesney, Curran, DeWitte, Fowler, Harriss, Joyce, Lewis, McClure, Plummer, Preston, Rezin, Rose, Stoller, Syverson, Tracy, Turner S, and Wilcox.

Senate Republican Leader Dan McConchie voted in favor of this bill.

The only House “NO” votes were from Davis Jed, Caulkins, Halbrook, Miller, Niemerg, Weber, and Wilhour.

House Republican Leader Tony M. McCombie voted in favor of this bill, as did Jason Bunting, John Cabello, Michael Coffey Jr., John Egofske, Amy Elik, Amy Grant, Mike Marron, and others.

This bill is currently awaiting the governor’s signature.

*Edit 6-5-2023: It is our understanding that this Bill will do nothing unless and until federal laws are changed to permit the noncitizens referenced in this bill to legally carry firearms.

Senator Chapin Rose spoke on the subject of noncitizens arresting citizens during floor debates:

    So are we talking about Russian immigrants arresting Ukrainian immigrants. What’s going on here?

    All I can say is…God help us. Unfreaking believable – but not surprising – under the current “leadership” in Illinois. It’s just another step in the dismantling of United States Sovereignty.

    Gotta give them jobs somewhere I guess but what an insult to Illinoisans. A reward for breaking our laws indeed. Seems like a lawsuit about that would be in order. Now if they could just get one of those 87,000 armed IRS jobs….wait for it…

    Call an ambulance & the coroner because you are going to need both if you think you are going to arrest me. You want to be a cop you better have more than a fake badge!!

    This is no surprise, it’s Illinois. Every Republican voting for this bill should resign. Minority Republican Leaders in the House and the Senate need to removed by their caucuses. If this becomes law in Illinois, no citizen will be arrested by a non citizen without dire consequences.

    So individuals guilty of a crime by their very presence will enforce laws on others? What could go wrong.

      You Bet!!! Look at what they are doing in Canada. Their crazy laws are enforced by “non-nationals” or United Nations Enforcement Officers. Just wait for the World Health Organization to decide that Church and Family Get-Togethers are NON ESSENTIAL!

    The tyrants have an ulterior motive. It’s much easier to get. Illegal aliens to violate Constitutional protections, local regulations, and basic American morality as they carry out the orders of their masters. It’s why despots taking over a country import soldiers and law enforcement from other countries – becasue they have no attachment to the populace or their customs and culture. This easier to get the “enforcers” to order the people into box cars and off to “the camps.”

    Gee, how about all those “illegal alien” questions that I have to answer on Form 4473 whenever I buy a gun? Am I here illegally or unlawfully? Have I renounced my U..S. Citizenship? (apparently now I don’t even NEED U.S. Citizenship, right?) Am I fugitive from justice? Am I an alien who has been admitted to the United States under a nonimmigrant visa? This is all complete and utter nonsense. If I’m an illegal alien I can’t posess a private right-to=carry permit under Federal law, but I can be a COP under Illinois state law?

    Clown world.

    If I fail Form 4473 not only can’t I have a right-to-carry permit, but I cannot take ownership of a gun to begin with. BUT I CAN BE A COP IN ILLINOIS?

    Are they going to teach the illegals to speak English? You ain’t going to arrest me speaking a language I don’t speak or understand. But then I don’t live in a garbage dump.

    US citizens will go to work tomorrow same as every day, working to support their criminal government, without one word or action of resistance against this. Decades of decadence and corruption and the US citizens keep their heads down, apathetic and ignorant to the fact that they are becoming slaves in their own country to foreign interests. The US continues to be conquered and colonized without firing even one shot.

    So anyone who breaks our immigration laws is now authorized to enforce our laws???? Not me because I will fight back. No illegal alien will ever arrest me. Period. J

    An Illinois constitutional attorney that believes in our constitution should take this ridiculous law to the Ikkinis Supreme Court and get it struck DOWN!

    Just wait until one of these illegal cops accidentally kills a black guy while trying to arrest him.

    Do you really think this is going to happen just in Illinois?

    They’re using that shit hole as a gateway
    to set the ball rolling into the rest of our
    country under the guise of not enough
    Americans being on the police force
    that THEY DEFUNDED!

    When will enough be enough to get people
    to wake up and fight back?

    All this corruption and nobody is doing a God damn
    thing about ANY OF IT!!

    I hate to say it but I am convinced at this
    point that we are fooked!

    God help us all.

    So Illinois wants to increase violence against immigrants, got it. Any current cops that are of foreign descent and have an accent, understand, this law places you in danger. Americans will assume you’re an immigrant and your authority will not be respected or recognized.

    When an illegal alien has the power to arrest an American citizen That is the end of American freedom, It is time to take our country back from these communist politicians who now ravage the Constitution for their own personal gains. When i think of all the Americans who Died to give us the freedom we have, my heart breaks. We need to stand together !Don’t let them take our country.
