Statement By President Preckwinkle On Mayor Rahm Emanuel’s Proposed Welcoming City Ordinance

I support Mayor Emanuel’s proposed Welcoming City Ordinance, which furthers our community’s decision to be a fair and equal county for immigrants, and underscores the message that we will not target the undocumented who are here to work hard and obey our laws.

The mayor’s ordinance, along with Cook County laws, ensures that police officers will be able to focus their resources on serious crimes and those who pose a security risk, rather than on law-abiding residents, irrespective of their immigration status.
