Bruce Rauner Refuses to Stand Up for Immigrant Families in Illinois

Bruce Rauner has repeatedly chosen to undermine investments and policies that help improve the well-being and safety of immigrant children and families. Rauner’s 736-day budget crisis forced these services and centers to scrape by. He has repeatedly proposed eliminating funding for immigrant integration services and Illinois Welcoming Centers. He also vetoed legislation advanced by the University of Illinois that would have allowed undocumented students to serve as student trustees in their system.

 
 
Rauner Failed Me
  • Bruce Rauner has repeatedly zeroed out funding for immigrant integration services and Illinois Welcoming Centers.
  • Rauner vetoed a bill letting undocumented students’ ability to serve as student trustees at the University of Illinois.
  • In 2015, Bruce Rauner stood with voices of hate and halted new Syrian refugees from entering the state.
  • Rauner has repeatedly been silent as Donald Trump spews anti-immigrant bigotry from the White House and advances policies that would tear apart Illinois’ families and communities.
