Where do Mayoral Candidates Stand on Expanding Sanctuary?

For the last 3 years, Chicago Community and Worker’s Rights has been working with a coalition of immigrant rights organizations to remove all carveouts from the Welcoming City Ordinance, so that Chicago Police have no collusion with Immigration and Customs Enforcement. Then, two years ago we joined the fight to Expand Sanctuary in Chicago, adding to our agenda the notorious Chicago Gang Database. For each of these policies, the current Mayor of Chicago has been a roadblock.

In the eve of a new administration, we present to you the responses from major Chicago candidates to the questions of ending the Chicago Gang Database and removing the carve-outs from the Welcoming City Ordinance.
