Sens. Sandoval, Castro, J. Cullerton, Harm, Martinez, Aquino and MunozSPRINGFIELD- State Senator Omar Aquino (D-Chicago) joined members of the Senate in overriding Governor Bruce Rauner’s veto of legislation that helps human trafficking and crime victims obtain visa certification paperwork from law enforcement within 90 business days. Aquino released the following statement after the vote:

“Victims of human trafficking and other severe crimes need our support as they help capture from those committing crimes against them and escape terrible situations. This legislation creates a process that ensures they have the documentation necessary to request a visa and encourages them to work with law enforcement. I encourage my colleagues in the House to approve this measure.”
