Sanctuary city Chicago

sanctuary-city-welcome-allChicago is among some 300 jurisdictions across the country that have declared themselves sanctuary cities and is set to become the first city to sue over new immigration rules.
Is it serious? Yes! Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel is ready see the President Donald Trump in court.
This Monday, Chicago was the first city to revolt. A lawsuit, sent in federal court against Attorney General Jeff Sessions, has become a sign for the President’s administration, meaning that Chicago will not follow the plan to separate families or force people to leave the country, making them homeless and scared. It has also shown that even if this immigration policy comes to effect, Chicago will stay away from this. By rejecting to be Trumps informants, they reduce the number of possible deportations, as it is not easy to detect everyone who committed even a minor offence.
“Chicago will never be put in a situation of a false choice between being a welcoming city and the principles – as I said – of community policing,” said Mayor Emanuel.
“It is a false choice and a wrong choice. Chicago will not let our officers become political pawns in a debate. Chicago will not let our residents have their fundamental rights isolated and violated. And, Chicago will never relinquish our status as a welcoming city.”
The Attorney General Jeff Sessions has the opposite idea and sanctuary cities have no idea about the harm they bring to the U.S. citizens.
Though for now Chicago is the only city to talk about this problem so openly, experts are sure other major cities like New York, Los Angeles, Boston, and San Francisco to join the legal fight soon.
