Washington sources have made a statement that the US city of Chicago is launching a campaign in response to President Donald Trump’s threats to cut off funding for sanctuary cities. Sanctuary city is a broad term applied to jurisdictions with policies in place to limit cooperation or involvement with federal immigration actions.
Many US cities, counties and some states have a myriad of informal policies and laws that qualify as “sanctuary” positions. It was stated that “One Chicago” was established in response to the growing needs of the city’s refugee and immigrant populations.
The campaign slogan reads: “Three million
residents, three million stories, one Chicago”. Mayor Rahm Emmanuel and several
others kicked off the event at the DuSable Museum of African American History
and the Emmanuel spoke of his grandfather, who journeyed to the US when he was
13 years old. Moreover he added “This country, the place he calls home, the
place my grandfather said without a word of English his grandson is the mayor.
This is the greatest city in the greatest country in the world.”
