McLean County Board Rejects Immigration Resolution

UPDATE: McLean County Board rejects immigration resolution (

The McLean County Board has rejected an effort to ban the use of county tax dollars to support migrants who would come to the community from the border.

The vote was 13-7 against GOP board member Chuck Erickson’s resolution, with three Republicans joining all 10 Democrats opposing Erickson’s measure. Board Chair Catherine Metsker, Randall Knapp, and Susan Schafer -all Republicans - voted with the majority.

“If nothing else, we raised awareness of an impending problem,” Erickson said in a statement provided to 25News after the meeting. “Chicago is like other cities where they are reaching maximum capacity and it won’t be long before it gets further downstate. I was disappointed that not one speaker offered to house migrants themselves. Not one.”
