In Letter Sent Home To All Parents, Chicago Public Schools Promise To Obstruct ‘The Enforcement Of Federal Civil Immigration Law’

Chicago Public SchoolsThe Chicago public school system has decided to openly defy the president of the United States. More than 392,000 students attend public schools in Chicago, and on Tuesday a letter was sent home with each of those students telling their parents that Chicago schools will not “assist in the enforcement of federal civil immigration law”. In fact, the letter actually says that federal officials will not even be allowed “to access CPS facilities”. In essence, every Chicago public school has now officially been declared to be a “sanctuary” for illegal immigrants. If you would like to see the original document, you can do so right here. This is just another example of how deeply divided we are as a nation. The entire public school system of one of our largest cities is now in open rebellion against the president, and that is a very dangerous sign.

Of course Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel had already established a precedent earlier this year when he pledged to defy Donald Trump and to continue to keep Chicago as a “sanctuary city” for illegal immigrants. The following comes from the Chicago Tribune

As President Donald Trump signed an executive order Wednesday to cut off some federal funding from sanctuary cities, Mayor Rahm Emanuel vowed Chicago would remain one and continue to protect immigrants from deportation.

“We’re gonna stay a sanctuary city,” Emanuel said in a news conference after Wednesday’s City Council meeting. “There is no stranger among us. We welcome people, whether you’re from Poland or Pakistan, whether you’re from Ireland or India or Israel and whether you’re from Mexico or Moldova, where my grandfather came from, you are welcome in Chicago as you pursue the American Dream.”

Emanuel makes it sound like you are “anti-immigrant” if you are against sanctuary cities. But that is not accurate at all. The truth is that America was built by immigrants, but for years we have had an immigration policy that is completely upside down.

We have allowed millions upon millions of people to pour across our borders illegally, but meanwhile we have made legal immigration a complete nightmare. I am familiar with the process that someone has to go through to legally immigrate to this country, and it is exceedingly complex and very expensive.

So we are keeping out the hard working, law abiding people that we should want to come here, but we have been keeping the back door wide open for criminals, gang members and those that are seeking to take advantage of the system.

What kind of sense does that make?

And the truth is that the Trump administration does not even want to deport all illegal immigrants. At this point, they are only focusing on those that have done something wrong, and that is very similar to the approach that was implemented under the Obama administration. The following comes from the Los Angeles Times

Immigration officers were directed to focus first on deporting convicted criminals or those charged with crimes. But Kelly also freed them to conduct more raids in immigrant communities and detain people who don’t have criminal convictions.

In addition to deporting those convicted of crimes, immigration officials will also target:

  • people in the country illegally who have been charged with crimes not yet adjudicated.
  • those who have not been charged but are believed to have committed “acts that constitute a chargeable criminal offense.” That would include the 6 million people believed to have entered without passing through an official border crossing.
  • those who receive an improper welfare benefit.
  • those who committed minor infractions such as driving without a license.

Unfortunately, if you speak out against illegal immigration these days, it could cost you your job.

This is becoming one of the most hotly contested political issues in the nation, and as we have already seen there are a lot of leftists that are not afraid to openly defy the federal government.

Of course the truth is that it is already probably too late to try to turn things around. It has been estimated that there are well over 100,000 gang members in the city of Chicago alone, and a very large percentage of them are illegal immigrants.

Someday when things get really bad in this country, gang violence will help fuel tremendous civil unrest all across the United States. The coming civil unrest is a major theme in my novel, and it is one of the reasons why so many concerned Americans have been moving away from the big urban centers.

And it isn’t just leftists that are openly defying Trump. This week, it is being reported that Mexico “will vigorously fight U.S. mass deportations of undocumented immigrants”…

Mexico will vigorously fight U.S. mass deportations of undocumented immigrants back to Mexico and refuse to accept any non-Mexicans expelled across the border, Mexican Foreign Minister Luis Videgaray vowed Wednesday.

A day after the Trump administration unveiled tough new guidelines for enforcing immigration laws, Videgaray said the treatment of Mexican migrants in the United States would top his country’s agenda when President Enrique Peña Nieto meets Thursday with Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly.

Relations between the United States and Mexico are already the worst that they have been in my entire lifetime, and they could potentially get a whole lot worse in the months ahead.

When it comes to immigration, Donald Trump is trying to do things very differently from how Barack Obama was doing them, and that is causing a lot of chaos, pain and confusion.

We always need to remember that every single person on this planet is of extraordinary value no matter what they look like or where they are from. And we will always need people to immigrate to this country. It is just that we need to make sure that everyone comes in through the front door instead of sneaking through a back door that has been purposely left wide open by careless politicians.

The I hope Trump sticks to his words (which from what I see in him he will) do not fund that city anymore. An with that city being the highest crime in the country THEY ARE STUPID they need all the help they can get. Seems like they would want to have any help they can get... All I can say is OH WELL  i just feel sorry for the   people that want the HELP

 That is truly the only avenue ,is to de-fund  all cities of all federal funding  that do not comply . And if that doesn't work then De-Fund all States that have UN-Constitutional Sheriffs and cities that refuse to comply . And finally if that doesn't work then Sanctions on all States that will not comply. 

What would you expect from a bastion of liberalism, controlled by the Marxist Democratic Party for the past 80 years!

What can you expect from a greedy, snowflake ballerina?  What does he cares?  He is making money and his children going to the best schools and a tutor.

I see Emanuel is talking shit again. When their funding is cut off and he has to spend jail time, his tone will change real quick.

I still say they should shut off the welfare faucet and all these free lunches.    If these illegals truly want to become Americans, they will find the way through hard work and pay their own way.    They are here for the benefits, period !

Clean out Chicago by starting at the top. Support D. Trump.

2 things

1.  "...we will always need people to immigrate to this country..."  WHY???  Because we kill over 600,000 new citizens, before they are born, every year???

2.  It is against the law for these people to do this, JAIL THEM, NOW.

For the posters that are advocating prayer as a solution, sorry but prayer alone won't do the job.  God helps those that help themselves, get off your knees and DO SOMETHING good.  How many of the prayer warriors didn't vote for Trump,or even bother to vote at all?

You remind me of the guy that died in a flood and when he met God he ask, "Why didn't You save me?"  God answered, "I sent you a 4 wheel drive vehicle, a boat, and a helicopter.  What more did you want?"

Herbert,

I pray every day for our President and our country. The Lord tells us to pray and many believe we should obey his commandments.  

Do I get off my knees once I am done praying? 

The answer is yes!! I campaigned for Trump, I campaigned for a US congressman, a State Representative. I donated to all of them. 

Besides that, I had a meeting with a US Congressmen last week. I am an adviser to a State Rep. I sit as a panelist for the Heritage Foundation, rating candidates for State and Federal Elections. I support the COS here in Ohio. So to answer your comment about "do something," I do. 

What have you done lately to help the conservative cause lately??? Do you pray at least once a day??

Not downing you, just asking. 

Me too..I think lots of us on this site do more than keyboard punchers.....and get our family's involved....pray without ceasing...AMEN

Scripture does say, "Pray unceasingly." and to "Pray first for your leaders."

and act. Which many of us do.

just think....sanctuary protection for illegals....while legal americans get shot in the streets from drug gangs and Mexican cartels.....thanks Chicago....
