After five years of organizing, the Welcoming City Ordinance amendments have passed through the Chicago City Council.
Thousands of immigrants in Chicago can now live in less fear for their basic safety and stability because the ordinance cuts off cooperation between local police and federal agencies like Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).
This is a major victory for immigrant communities, immigrant-led organizing, and JCUA’s coalition partners in the Chicago Immigration Working Group.
Read the story of the campaign from Anna Rubin, JCUA’s lead organizer and organizer for the Immigration Justice committee.
