Non-US citizens will soon be allowed to become police officers in the state of Illinois.
Illinois House Bill 3571 which gives non-US citizens power to arrest people as police officers, passed both the House and Senate.
Republican state senator Rose Chapin was concerned about the new bill passing and stated “What this means in Illinois, is that you may soon see non-US citizens wearing police badges, with arrest powers over US citizens.”
Currently the bill sits at democrat Governor J. B. Pritzker’s desk where its expected to get signed.

House Bill 3571 passed both Houses this past week with Senate Floor Amendment 1.
SA1 permits counties and municipalities to hire non-citizens as deputy sheriffs and police officers in the same manner as hiring U.S. citizens, as long as they are: “legally authorized under federal law to work in the United States and is authorized under federal law to obtain, carry, or purchase or otherwise possess a firearm, or who is an individual against whom immigration action has been deferred by the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services under the federal Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) process and is authorized under federal law to obtain, carry, or purchase or otherwise possess a firearm”
What this means in Illinois, is that you may soon see non-US citizens wearing police badges, with arrest powers over US citizens. Senator Rose spoke against its passage, suggesting it would violate the United States Constitution.

California also enacted a new law that allows no-US citizens to become police officers too.
Per CBS 8 News:
With the new year, comes new state laws, including one that changed the qualifications to become a police officer in California.
Now, anyone who can legally work in the state under federal law, can be a police officer, regardless of citizenship.
CBS 8 cleared up some misconceptions about the new law by going directly to the State Senator who wrote the bill, and we talked with the San Diego Police Officers Association about their concerns.
Just when you think Newsom can’t position California to be anymore anti-American, he does.https://t.co/T6Cw0wHmdy
