Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel said that illegal immigrants and their children are welcome in his city and “part of the Chicago family.”
During an interview on CNN’s “State of the Union” on Sunday, Emanuel assured illegal immigrants who make Chicago their sanctuary that the police will “not violate” their trust.
“The kids who go to our schools, the Dreamers… whether you’re from Ireland or India, Poland or Pakistan, Mexico or Moldova, where my grandfather came from, those children are part of the Chicago family,” he said.
“I want those families to know and their children to know that if you believe in America and you believe in tomorrow, which is what we always believe here, you are welcome,” the former Obama White House Chief of Staff said.
The Democratic Chicago mayor emphasized that law enforcement relied on the trust of the community on authorities.
Emanuel warns the police, “Your safety on the streets is built on relationships between community and police and a level of trust. And if you violate that trust, you violate the ability to accomplish what you want.”
100% Fed Up reports:
Sunday on “State of the Union” Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel shocked Dana Milbanks when he said illegals are “part of the Chicago family.” Notice what he did here. He conflated the LEGAL IMMIGRANTS who came here with the ILLEGALS. The left want to tug at your heartstrings in their effort to make the legal and illegal one and the same…Emanuel is saying he’s willing to break the law by letting these people into his city. Shouldn’t we arrest him now?
