Double standard

Updated 3/28/2020 8:55 AM

In his press conferences Gov. Pritzker has stated that he was very, very upset with the federal government with how customs enforcement was handling travelers at O'Hare. People had to wait longer than normal because of COVID-19 screening.

I find this interesting. Apparently the governor believes he is privileged to determine which laws he follows. When Border Patrol and ICE ask for cooperation to arrest and deport illegal immigrants, the governor says not here. We will not cooperate.


He is only worried about travelers being inconvenienced and making a political statement. So I guess Gov. Pritzker is above the law.
