New Act


Synopsis As Introduced
Creates the Keep Illinois Families Together Act. Provides that the Attorney General, within 90 days of the effective date of this Act, in consultation with the appropriate stakeholders, shall propose new rules related to limiting assistance with immigration enforcement at the following facilities to the fullest extent possible consistent with federal and State law to ensure that these facilities remain safe and accessible to all Illinois residents, regardless of immigration status: (1) public schools, including public pre-schools and other early learning programs, public elementary and secondary schools, and public 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) courthouses. Provides that within 6 months of the effective date of the Act, all State agencies, public schools, and public institutions of higher education shall review their confidentiality policies to identify any changes necessary to limit collection of information from individuals to that information necessary to perform agency duties and to limit use or disclosure of information for any other purpose. Provides that a law enforcement agency or official may not inquire about the citizenship or immigration status or place of birth of any individual, including any person who has been arrested or detained by the agency, any person in the agency or official's custody, any person submitting to questioning by the agency or official, any crime victim, any witness, or any person who calls or approaches the law enforcement agency or official seeking assistance. Makes other changes.

 Fiscal Note (Dept. of Central Management Services)
 There is no fiscal impact to the Department of Central Management Services.

 Fiscal Note (Office of the Attorney General)
 HB 1637 would not have a significant fiscal impact on our Office as an existing bureau within the Office of the Attorney General could cover the work.

House Floor Amendment No. 2
Replaces everything after the enacting clause. Creates the Keep Illinois Families Together Act. Provides that on or after the effective date of the Act, no law enforcement agency or official may enter into or remain in an agreement with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement under a federal delegated authority program. Provides that nothing shall preclude a law enforcement official from otherwise executing that official's duties in ensuring public safety. Defines terms. Effective immediately.
