Foreign Legion

well that stinks
There is an old saying in Lake County: "I am not a member of any organized political party. I am a Republican."

HaHa, GOP Presidential frontrunner Ron DeSantis is mad enough to eat nails over one recently passed Illinois law:
A new bill allowing eligible non-U.S. citizens in Illinois to become police officers was signed into law by Governor J. B. Pritzker on Friday, amid criticism from some Republican lawmakers.
Fact Check: Can Illegal Immigrants Now Become Police Officers in Illinois?
What's the hoo-ha all about? DeSantis says ...
"Illinois is now letting illegal aliens become police officers."
Pritzker: DeSantis 'isn't smart enough to be president'
Illinois GOP Congressmen Lauren Boebert and Mary Miller are both mad enough to kick a cat, as well:
Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-Colo.) and Rep. Mary Miller (R-Ill.) are among the conservative lawmakers criticizing the new law.
Pritzker: DeSantis 'isn't smart enough to be president'
And then there is Lake County backbench Representative, Martin McLaughlin.  How mad is McLaughlin? Mad enough to have voted for the bill:
Rep. McLaughlin votes to allow noncitizens to become Illinois police officers
What up with that?

One spokesman insisted the GOP is still a unified party in Illinois: "We're only looking out for your interests. Let's say you're on Route 14 and the police nab you for speeding. All you have to do is make a citizen's arrest, and hand that cop over to the INS. And, waa-laa, no more speeding ticket."
