As many of you know, the Safe-T Act will go into effect on January 1, 2023. This law will allow criminals accused of kidnapping, armed robbery, second degree murder, aggravated DUI, threatening a public official, and aggravated fleeing to be released with a no cash bail.

For Chicago, and all of Illinois, this law could be detrimental. This law is coming at a time when Chicago’s crime rate is the highest that it has ever been. We have criminals running our streets, and those criminals must be held accountable. This law will be a danger to everyone in our community.

Our lawmakers are claiming that this law will not be a danger to this community, because it will allow for judges to order pretrial detention if they believe that the criminal is a public threat to the community. Our lawmakers claim that violent criminals accused of first-degree murder and sexual assault will not qualify for no cash bail, but they are failing to admit that kidnapping, armed robbery, drug induced homicide, aggravated DUI, threatening a public official, and aggravated fleeing are all dangerous and violent crimes that should be punished.

When we allow kidnappers back on our street, we will be putting our community at risk. If our lawmakers truly cared about “minority communities”, they would keep these communities safe by keeping criminals off the streets. Our law enforcement will not be allowed to arrest criminals and keep them off our streets. Our law enforcement needs our support. Our community needs our support. Our families need out support. We cannot allow dangerous criminals back onto the streets!

We must get crime under control, or it will destroy our future. As your congressman, I will fight to make our regions safe for our families and businesses.

Please share our campaign with your friends and family that care about Cook and Lake Counties, as well as cities such as Chicago, DesPlaines, Park Ridge, Lake Zurich, Barrington, Norridge, Lincolnwood, Elk Grove Village, and Arlington Heights.
