Chicago Mayor Bans ICE From Using Police Database Days Before Raids Begin

So far the Democrats have made it crystal clear that they are willing to go to any lengths to protect illegal aliens.

In the wake of the announcement by President Trump that deportations are commencing as soon as possible, Chicago’s mayor announced that every effort will be made to block ICE’s efforts to round up and deport illegal aliens.

Breitbart reported that Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot said on Wednesday that the Windy City has made moves to bar ICE from accessing its police databases amid reports of potential raids in more than 10 major U.S. cities scheduled for Sunday.

“They will not team up with ICE to detain any resident. We have also cut off ICE access from any CPD databases and that will remain permanent,” Lightfoot said. “Chicago is and will always be a welcoming city that will never tolerate ICE tearing our families apart.”

In a statement to the Chicago Tribune, police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi stated that the city’s Citizen and Law Enforcement Analysis and Reporting database will not be available to ICE officials, though several federal government agencies will still have access.

“All other federal agencies still have access to these systems, as sharing this information is crucial to active criminal investigations in which we are partnering with federal agencies along with intelligence sharing functions that are vital to national homeland security functions,” Guglielmi stated.

Acting U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) Director, Ken Cuccinelli, appeared on CBS News on Sunday and said ICE is prepared to remove approximately one million illegal aliens with final orders for deportation.

“[ICE agents are] ready to just perform their mission which is to go and find and detain and then deport the approximately one million people who have final removal orders,” he said. “They’ve been all the way through the due process and have final removal orders. Who among those will be targeted for this particular effort or not is really just information kept within ICE.”

And once again we have a political “leader” who decides to side with illegal aliens rather than with citizens. It is somewhat ironic that they wear the term “democratic” and yet behave in a manner more in keeping with a dictatorial attitude.

They claim they really believe in the rule of the majority, but continue to go against the will of the majority.
