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.

    So, what your saying is that cities should spend their money on municipal law and municipal provision of services?
    And not allow the federal government to encroach on local control?

  • YH

    Wow. Using taxpayer funding to defy existing federal immigration laws. It’s time to cut off federal funding to Chicago. Let us see how it takes for Chicago to enter fiscal meltdown. It won’t take long.

  • K

    Just more of the same. These are people, who have just not been told no, often enough. I bumped into a small group of protesters, last time I was in a major town, to do some shopping. Woman ran at me yelling Trump is a Nazi. Normally I would have ignored her. But she was blocking my way into the store. So I told her. Growing up I had heard about Nazis from my Father and Uncle, and several of their friends. These were all people who fought them in WWII. So I told her. I had absolute proof that none of these people she was protesting, were Nazis. She asked what proof? I told her the proof was, she was still alive. Nazis do not allow opposing opinions.

    Deport all Illegals! Most Illegals in order to find employment in America usually use fake documents & fake Social security numbers. that would be referred to as Identity theft which is a Felony. in 1985 I worked the entire Year in Arizona and returned to California in 1986. 2 weeks after I got back to Cali I recieved a letter from the California Franchise Tax Board informing me that I owed $1,500.00 in back taxes for 1985. I called them and explained I wasn’t even in the State for the entire year.
    I asked whom I supposedly worked for and they gave me the name & addresses of 4 employers and every single employer i contacted informed me that a Ernesto Castaneda was working for them using my Social Security Number. they fired him Immediately and made a letter I could give to the Tax board that I never ever was employed by them. If it wasn’t for these letters California would have taken $1,500.00 from me. think Ernesto cared if California wrongly took my money? Like I said,, deport all Illegals!

    Since the school will defy our President a patriot can take other steps. All it would take is one phone call to ICE letting them know the whereabouts of the illegals in that school.

    • William Lutz

      How can I nod at the scenario of school children being brutally kidnapped by ICE and sent back to their homeland with their parents? That’s fascist and heart wrenching.

      • horn blower

        First off don’t assume ICE is brutal nor do they ‘kidnap’. You say you cannot ‘nod’ in approval of enforcing our laws, then you have the ‘right’ under our laws of the Constitution–so you are for breaking laws to serve ‘your’ purpose? How do you feel if we came to your house demanding your home and money because ‘we have a right to survive’? This is tough love and someone needs to be the parent. When the rest of the world stops patrolling, guarding and enforcing their laws of their country protecting their boarders then we can have a conversation. Until then, defend our boarders and laws.

      • 105mmHowitzer

        They are here illegally and as such, they are lawbreakers. They have no right to be in this country and deserve deportation. Unfortunately, limp-wristed wieners like you and your ilk would prefer to allow them to come here and drain the resources of this country – while taking jobs from Americans. There’s nothing wrong with you that permanent relocation to North Korea wouldn’t cure.

  • Zlatko Milanovic

    Not the school’s job to enforce immigration law. Period. You people are hysterical and filled with hate.

    • David

      enforcing existing Immigration laws is hate? why don’t you try living next door to these low life’s for 6 months in East Los Angeles then tell me how much you love them?

      • Zlatko Milanovic

        See the words you used… “low-lifes”, you’re filled with hate.

        • David

          why don’t you go help Madonna fulfill her obligation to all the male liberals that voted for Hillary? hahaha.

          • Zlatko Milanovic

            Why don’t you David?

        • David

          your probably right. when you get beaten within an inch of your life by scum because they don’t like the color of your skin then you come by it honestly.

          • Zlatko Milanovic

            Ok, I can respect that.

    • 105mmHowitzer

      You’re evidently someone who approves of lawlessness. Move to North Korea. There’s a village there missing its idiot.

      • Zlatko Milanovic

        Don’t approve of lawlessness. Let the cops enforce the law, not schools.

  • David

    How is it these Politicians, Governors, Senators ect. willfully thumb their nose & Give the Big FU to Federal Officials by refusing to enforce Federal Immigration Laws & they are not in Jail & retain their position of power?
    baffles the mind.
    Jail them all including Jerry Brown of California.

  • DJohn1

    What are we dealing with here? Should we rename Chicago? Perhaps call it the Republic of Chicago?
    This crosses a very tight line between freedom of speech and insurrection. These people do not have the authority to do what they are doing. There is a direct chain of command in our legal system and they do not have the pay grade to do what they are doing. Insurrection is a very harsh word. It also comes with some fairly harsh penalties if it is pursued by the Federal Government.
    If a majority of these gangs happen to be illegally here. There happens to be a jail waiting for them and the military does have the facilities to put them in that jail and man the jail if the states do not.
    It comes down to jurisdiction.
    I would say deport them. But then they would come right back. I say use existing laws concerning legal immigrants and put them in jail.
    They are in violation of an entire list of laws just based on their hiding and using false id.
    One reason this party and this president are in office is they came out against illegal immigration.
    Now they either put up or get out of office. Because most of what they campaigned on was a lie.
    This is not about illegal immigration any more. It is about the opposition wanting to start a civil war. Insurrection is an ugly word. But if the shoe fits, then they are going to court and a lot of them are going to jail.

  • David

    with Liberty & welfare checks for all.

  • greanfinisher .

    All of the illegal immigrants had done something wrong as they invaded this country. Deport them!

    • William Lutz

      Don’t you realize how extremely complicated the immigration process is?

      • jaxon64

        Your point is?
        Making a million dollars is also very difficult, doesn’t give me the right to print my own or to steal a million…….stupid, vapid argument.

      • 105mmHowitzer

        Don’t you realize how extremely vapid your argument is?

  • greanfinisher .

    We can start things off by arresting the Chicago mayor for harboring felons.

    • poor white eunuch

      People get felonies for making comments about bombs, marijuana possession and other minor stuff.

      Any label given by a corrupt government needs to be taken with a grain of salt.

  • Christine Marais

    Despicable. Using school children for political purposes is despicable. As long as YOU, adults, allow YOUR government and representatives to use YOUR tax money in endless wars, YOU will have a responsibility toward the many countries destroyed in YOUR name, including to welcome their survivors here, even at the expense of YOUR economic well being and comfort.
    Keep the children out of it. They were not brought in this world to fight YOUR battles and it is not their job. Take it up with YOUR leaders. Cowards.

    • William Lutz

      Kids need to feel the pain too. This is how they come to realize how effed up our country is.

    • poor white eunuch

      “Using school children for political purposes is despicable”
      You should see what horrors children had to put up with through most of human history!

      I did not read the article but long ago children had a very rough life in many cultures.

      • Christine Marais

        And…? Perpetuating a very sad and sorry state of affair by using kids for political purposes benefiting a handful today (less than 0.1%) makes it right… how? Does humanity want to keep recreating what was for lack of vision or does humanity want to evolve beyond its sorry past?

  • iris

    From this article, it seems blatantly obvious that the focus of CPS is the politically correct one, defying the current administration and because it is trying to reintroduce the rule of law into the U.S. This seems to have very little to do with children’s education, and no regard for parents who may be concerned about their safety. Homeschooling has increasingly proven to be the better option for academic success, and the students have access to a great deal of interaction with their peers in the “traditional” school setting. Lots of networking available for the parents, also. The public system has been failing our children for decades. The drop out rate is astounding, the environment is unsafe for many, those who do graduate high school read at a 5th grade level on average. Charter schools are better than the other public settings, but many have been 86’d. I think that’s because of the union thugs and those in the education system in high places who line their own pockets and are lackeys for the social engineering crowd. The average public school teacher is still overworked and underpaid.

    • William Lutz

      Charter schools still suck. Believe me, I went to a new Charter High School a few years ago and thank God I graduated from that stupid ghetto. The first year there was alright, but then it got stressful and the atmosphere started going downhill. I would have been better off with virtual school and a home tutor.

    • poor white eunuch

      To learn about CPS you should see the site medical kidnap.
      It’s horrible what they do.
