What part of the word, "illegal" am I not understanding?

Illegal immigrants are now "protected" in the state of Illinois thanks to a bill passed by Governor Bruce Rauner.

According to The Chicago Tribune, the "Trust Act" which stops local and state police from detaining or arresting a person because they are an illegal immigrant, has been signed Governor Bruce Rauner.

So being in the state of Illinois, as an ILLEGAL immigrant isn't illegal. Do I have this right? The concern is that Illinois will become a "Sanctuary State" now that this bill is passed. Meaning that illegal immigrants that sneak into our country, our state, and our cities will be safe from law enforcement. Remember as a kid playing freeze tag and there was this imaginary force field around you where you could not be tagged it? Yup, it's like that.

Some how this is a good idea according to Gov Bruce Rauner. Letting people that are illegally in our country stay in our state, where we live, work, and raise our families legally.
