IMMIGRANT VICTIM-REPORTING ACT                                             

Synopsis of Bill as introduced:
        Creates the Immigrant Victim of Crime  Reporting  Act.   Requires      
   the   Department   of  Human  Services  to  establish  a  program  for      
   investigation of all criminal  complaints  made  by  victims  who  are      
   undocumented residents of the United States.  Prohibits the Department      
   from  releasing  to  any other State or federal agency any identifying      
   information about the victim or his or her family  unless  the  victim      
   provides  written consent.  Requires the Department to investigate the      
   complaint even if the victim does  not  provide  written  consent  for      
   release of identifying information.  Directs the Governor of the State      
   of Illinois to petition the appropriate federal agency to obtain legal      
   immigration  status  for  the  victim  or any witness necessary to the      
   investigation or prosecution of any violent crime or  felony  offense.      
   Effective immediately.
