Illinois Gov Threatens Business Owners With One Year In Prison For Opening
Business owners in Illinois who try to reopen so that they can feed their families face up to a year in prison if they defy Governor Pritzker’s unconstitutional stay at home order.
Last week Governor Pritzker issued a warning to businesses and residents that the state is in lockdown until at least the end of May. He also warned that citizens could be mandated to wear masks and practice social distancing indefinitely.
A legislative committee is schedule to meet today to discuss an emergency order that was filed that would criminalize businesses who open up despite the stay at home order.
Under the amended Department of Health rule businesses could be charged with a class A misdemeanor for opening up their businesses to support themselves and their families.
The emergency ruling took effect on Friday which means business that open could face a $2500 fine and a year in prison.
Governor Pritzker is clearly abusing his power and wants to criminalize citizens who are trying to provide for their families.
