PBS host cuts off Republican William J. Kelly on Illinois' secret sanctuary state bill


Watch PBS host Phil Ponce cut off GOP candidate for Governor William J. Kelly (at the 7:20 mark) when Kelly tries to talk about "The Trust Act," Illinois' secret sanctuary state bill.

The bill passed the Illinois General Assembly on Memorial Day and it could become law in days. Media outlets in Illinois have refused to cover the "Trust Act" legislation and members of immigrant and refugee coalitions have stated publicly that the words "sanctuary state" were purposely kept out of the bill to prevent a public outcry. Illinois politicians, including Gov. Rauner, and Democrat and Republican members of the General Assembly, have also been "mum" on the legislation, which passed the Illinois Senate and the Illinois State House on Memorial Day. The legislation is awaiting Gov. Rauner's signature to become law.

Kelly is challenging anti-Trump Gov. Bruce Rauner of Illinois. For info, visit
