Affirm Chicago's Intention to Remain a Sanctuary City

Amy Boyer started this petition to Mayor Rahm Emanuel

With Donald Trump as president-elect, it is clear that undocumented citizens will be under even more pressure from government harassment. There is even speculation that the federal government may withdraw funds from cities to punish them for protecting these vulnerable populations. Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Seattle have all recently reaffirmed their commitment to acting as Sanctuary Cities by refusing to refer people to ICE for traffic stops, minor misdemeanors, etc. As you know, in 2012 the Chicago City Council passed such an ordinance. I think it would give people peace of mind if you would reaffirm Chicago's commitment to this stance.
