Mayor Emanuel’s Statement on Supreme Court Immigration Ruling

December 21, 2018
Mayor's Press Office    312.744.3334

“I applaud the Court’s decision to not revive the Trump Administration’s draconian and inhumane policy against individuals and families seeking asylum in our country. Banning migrants from exercising this basic right is not only unjust, but it stands as an affront to our highest values as Americans and the spirit on which our nation was founded. Chicago is proud of our heritage as a Welcoming City for asylum-seekers, refugees and immigrants alike who have braved danger and uncertainty to seek a better life for themselves and their families, and we will continue to fight for the dreams of all people, no matter who they are or where they came from.”
