(CHICAGO) Chicago Public Schools principals have been told, if immigration agents show up and they don’t have a criminal warrant, don’t let them in.
As the Trump Administration announced a rewrite of immigration enforcement policies, CPS Education Officer Janice Jackson told principals to alert CPS lawyers, immediately, if immigration agents show up at district buildings. The district says the agents should wait outside while the law department is reviewing the matter.
Principals are also being urged to update student emergency contact forms.
Rather than just focusing on violent crimes, those in the country illegally could be subjected to rapid deportation if they are charged or convicted of any offense or even suspected of a crime. That’s according to Homeland Security Department memos signed by Secretary John Kelly.
