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. 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.
