Statement from Mayor Emanuel on President Trump's Immigration Proposal

Mayor's Press Office    312.744.3334

"President Trump is turning his back on Dreamers and doubling down on dangerous, divisive anti-immigrant policies which would tear families apart, deport law-abiding children to countries they have never known and break America's promise to bright, hard-working young people who are part of the fabric of American society. Chicago will always remain a Welcoming City, stand up for our values and stand by Dreamers who are our classmates, coworkers, friends and neighbors. Congress should not bend to pressure from the Trump Administration, they should codify America's commitment to Dreamers without caving to President Trump's destructive demands."
