Chicago Mayor Won’t Let ICE Access Police Databases

As ICE is reportedly gearing up to launch massive raids this weekend, Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot is trying to block their efforts.

This week, Lightfoot announced that the Chicago Police Department will not cooperate with ICE or allow them to access police databases.

Lightfoot says the move is “permanent”, adding “Chicago is and will always be a welcoming city that will never tolerate ICE tearing our families apart”.

It’s been reported this week that ICE plans to launch raids in 10 major cities beginning this Sunday, rounding up over 2,000 undocumented immigrants.
