Rahm Emanuel Declares Chicago “Trump-Free Zone”

The Chicago mayor is unsatisfied with merely making his city a “sanctuary city.”

Chicago Mayor Rham Emanuel declared Chicago a “Trump-free zone” in the wake of the president’s decision to end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program on Tuesday.

Emanuel addressed DACA enrollees, telling them that Chicago was open to them. “This is your home, and you have nothing to worry about,” he said.

“Chicago, our schools, our neighborhoods, our city, as it relates to what President Trump said, will be a Trump-free zone,” Emanuel then said.

Chicago is a sanctuary city and is currently suing the Department of Justice over efforts at the DOJ to strip sanctuary cities of federal funding.
