As City Clerk I would lobby Congress and the Senate to pas Comprehensive Immigration Reform.
I would not support Chicago's effort to operate as a sanctuary city. I would not support policies that flagrantly violate Federal laws.
I do not support the concept of providing undocumented immigrants a Municipal ID that illegal aliens can use to register and vote.
I previously supported President Obama’s Executive Action which made it easier and faster for high-skilled immigrants, graduates, and entrepreneurs to remain in the U.S. and contribute to our economy.
I believe the Chicago Superintendent of Police should further train all officers to ensure that no one violates the rule or concept, but instead operates in a manner consistent with the spirit of the Executive Action.
Chicago police should be instructed that no Chicago resident, or person within our jurisdiction, shall be subject to any scrutiny of the type reserved for Immigrations Customs Enforcement Agents. However, the city should not shield illegal immigrants who break the law from Immigration Custom Enforcement.
All persons should be afforded equal service and equal protection under the law.
