In keeping with his policy that favors teachers over their students, criminals over their victims, and illegals over U.S. citizens, Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel has declared the city’s public schools as “Trump free zones” in light of the president’s decision to do reverse the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program instituted by President Obama in 2012.

Mayor Emanuel, who served as Obama’s first Chief of Staff from January 2009 to October 2010, sought to provide reassurance to illegal immigrant students on the first day of school who were concerned that they are facing immediate deportation.

“Chicago, our schools, our neighborhoods, our city, as it relates to what President Trump said, will be a Trump-free zone. You have nothing to worry about,” Emanuel told the Solorio Academy High School student body where at least one-third are illegal immigrants.

“And I want you to know this, and I want your families to know this. And rest assured, I want you to come to school … and pursue your dreams.”

President Obama and Democrats have used the word “dreamer” to describe children of parents who came to the United States illegally, and who have made no effort to obtain citizenship in the intervening years.

Many of the people referred to as “children” by supporters of Obama’s Executive Action are now in their 30s and 40s, but still illegal aliens.

“To all the Dreamers that are here in this room, and in the city of Chicago, you are welcomed in the city of Chicago. This is your home and you have nothing to worry about,” Emanuel said.

During the 2016 presidential campaign, then-candidateTrump initially promised to end the Obama-era deferment and pursue deportation of the illegals, but later said that the issue was more complicated and warranted a degree of compassion mixed with justice.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions was tapped by President Trump to announce that the DACA deferment will end in six-months giving affected persons the opportunity to appeal or make plans.

Because DACA was enforced as an Executive Order and not a law duly enacted by Congress, it can be rescinded by another president.

The president also tweeted that he expected Congress to enact not only “reasonable immigration reform” in the next six months but legislation that “puts American jobs and American security first.”

 “We are facing the symptom of a larger problem, illegal immigration, along with the many other chronic immigration problems Washington has left unsolved,” Trump said.

Do you believe Congress should act to reform immigration law to provide so-called "Dreamers" a pathway to citizenship or make them return to the homeland of their parents and initiate the citizenship process?
