Dems Want Chicago To Be “Model City” For Amnestied Illegals
(The Hill) Chicago Democrats are hoping to make the Windy City the model for enrolling illegal immigrants into whatever new benefits the Obama administration might adopt.
Rep. Luis GutiÃ©rrez (D-Ill.) and Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel (D) joined forces Wednesday with roughly 50 civic leaders to launch a comprehensive strategy for signing up those immigrants who might become newly eligible for any new benefits coming out of the administration.
“When an announcement comes, we will make sure Chicago is ready, that the community institutions in our neighborhoods are ready, and that we can efficiently inform our community about what is being announced and can help our neighbors sign up,” Gutierrez said in a statement after the meeting.
The Democrats are hoping to prevent the enrollment bottleneck that followed Obama’s 2012 launch of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, which granted work permits to certain qualified illegal immigrants brought to the country as children. Thousands of applicants lined up on Chicago’s Navy Pier, surprising advocates and leading to some delays in processing.
Hey, why not, it’s the model right now for violence, murders, shootings, black on black killings, and citizens fearing for their lives, the very definition of “don’t do this”. It’s a city that is constantly roiled by worker walk-outs at fast food joints, so, he, nothing better than adding thousands of illegal aliens to the legal job que to help keep worker wages down, eh?
