Chicago mayor blocks ICE from accessing police databases ahead of potential raids

Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot (D) announced Wednesday that she has cut off Immigration and Customs Enforcement from accessing the city’s police databases in an effort to prevent illegal immigrants from being targeted in potential deportation raids.

Speaking at press conference, Lightfoot said, “Chicago is and will always be a welcoming city that will never tolerate ICE tearing our families apart.”

With that, Lightfoot went on to explain she had “personally spoken with ICE leadership in Chicago” to express her opposition to raids of any kind, before detailing the measures her administration has taken over the past few weeks to hinder ICE’s efforts.

Lightfoot said “the Chicago Police Department will not cooperate with ICE. That means that they will not team up with ICE to detain any resident. We’ve also cut off access from ICE to any CPD databases and that will remain permanent.”
