A few days ago, the Chicago Police Department advised its officers not to cooperate with the Department of Homeland Security, particularly in situations involving immigration arrests.
Fox News had obtained a copy of the memo sent out to the officers.
According to their new instructions listed in the memo, instead of assisting DHS, officers are required to wait for their supervisor to arrive. Once the supervisor arrives on the scene, “if the request is to assist with an immigration arrest or detention, CPD personnel will leave the scene as directed by the CPD supervisor.”
The CPD has confirmed the memo came from an internal superior but would not respond to questions if the new mayor also supported this.
Police in Chicago were warned not to cooperate with the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) on issues of immigration.
The Chicago Police Department (CPD)sent a memo, obtained by Fox News, to officers in late September telling them to wait for a supervisor to arrive before assisting DHS. Upon arrival, the supervisor will direct CPD officers to leave the scene, “if the request is to assist with an immigration arrest or detention. Fox News confirmed the authenticity of the memo but could not determine whether Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot was behind the directive.
Several sources within the CPD told Fox that the new policy puts both departments at risk. [Daily Wire]
Harboring, aiding, or otherwise abetting illegal aliens is a felony under the US Immigration and Naturalization Act. Instead, we have Chicago refusing to comply and NYC making it a crime to say ‘illegal alien.’ These politicians need to be prosecuted under the statute.
I can’t imagine that the ICE agents in Chicago are apprehending innocent dreamers working at Portillo’s. Wouldn’t they be arresting illegal immigrants who have committed serious crimes? Wouldn’t such apprehensions benefit the law-abiding and tax-paying citizens of the community? What a joke.

Sooner or later, Mayor Lori Lightfoot will then ask Congress for money to deal with a problem of her own making. If Chicago wants the illegals, they need to cover the expense. The American federal taxpayer should not be asked to fund illegal activities.
Isn’t it funny that when it comes to the constitution, liberals want it followed and want the law followed until they find a cause close to their hearts (or to increase their voting base)?
