“Just in: Illinois Governor J.B. Pritzker has signed a law that will allow illegal immigrants to become police officers and sheriff’s deputies,” reads text in the screenshot. "In Illinois American citizens will be arrested by illegals."

It was shared more than 200 times in 10 days.

.............The legislation Pritzker signed into law July 28 will allow municipalities and sheriffs to hire some noncitizens as police officers or sheriff's deputies. It takes effect Jan. 1 and is similar to a California law signed in 2022 that also has been the subject of false claims.

The language of the 15-page Illinois law makes clear applicants must meet several criteria: They must be legally authorized to work in the U.S., and they must be allowed under federal law to obtain, carry or possess a gun.

I have little interest in streamlining government or in making it more efficient, for I mean to reduce its size. I do not undertake to promote welfare, for I propose to extend freedom. My aim is not to pass laws, but to repeal them.

They are still ILLEGALS and have no right to police or sheriff LEGAL citizens!  Regardless of what the rules of IL say, they are going against Federal Laws. The Constitution applies to citizens of this country; otherwise ILLEGALS have no rights!
