Replaces everything after the enacting clause. Creates the Immigration Safe Zones Act. Provides that the Attorney General by April 1, 2019, in consultation with appropriate stakeholders, shall publish model policies, limiting assistance with immigration enforcement to the fullest extent possible consistent with federal and State law ensuring that the following facilities remain safe and accessible to all residents of this State, regardless of immigration status: (1) State-funded schools, including licensed day care centers, pre-schools, and other early learning programs; elementary and secondary schools, and institutions of higher education; (2) State-funded medical treatment and health care facilities, including hospitals, health clinics, emergency or urgent care facilities, nursing homes, group homes for persons with developmental disabilities, community-integrated living arrangements, and State mental health facilities; (3) public libraries; (4) facilities operated by the Office of the Secretary of State; and (5) courts in this State. Provides that a law enforcement official shall not assist or support in any immigration enforcement operation by an immigration agent taking place in or around the perimeter of any of those agencies unless immigration officials present a valid and properly issued criminal warrant related to the investigation or prosecution of any criminal offense, including offenses provided for in the laws of another state or federal law. Provides that on and after the effective date of the Act, all applications, questionnaires, and interview forms used in relation to benefits, opportunities, or services provided by a State agency or in-State or in-district tuition verification, scholarships, grants, or services provided by a public elementary or secondary school or public institution of higher education shall be promptly reviewed by that State agency, school, or institution, and any questions regarding citizenship or immigration status, other than those required by statute, ordinance, federal law, or court order, shall be removed within 60 days after the effective date of the Act. Makes other changes.
