The Honorable Rahm Emanuel, Mayor of the City of Chicago, has declared the City of Chicago a “Trump free zone. The Hill:
“To all the Dreamers that are here in this room and the city of Chicago: you are welcome in the city of Chicago. This is your home and you have nothing to worry about…Chicago, our schools, our neighbourhoods, our city, as it relates to what President Trump said, will be a Trump-free zone. You have nothing to worry about. And I want you to know this, and I want your families to know this. And rest assured, I want you to come to school … and pursue your dreams.”
Emanuel served as former President Barack Obama’s chief of staff in the first year and a half of his White House tenure. Obama created the DACA program in 2012.
“So, to all those who are part of what are referred to as DACA, or ‘Dreamers’, you will always be ‘Dreamers’ in the eyes of the city of Chicago because you have big dreams and we wan to be a part of those dreams,” Emanuel said.
Won’t it be nice when the entire country can declare that is is a Trump free zone?
