Mayors of major US cities say they will not cooperate with planned
ICE raids of illegal aliens
“Our law enforcement officers will never participate in these actions”
Several leaders of major U.S. cities have reacted to reports of planned Immigration and Customs Enforcement raids, and they say they will not cooperate with the federal action.
Mark Morgan, the acting director of ICE, told reporters that the raids would target families that have received a deportation order.
“If you’re here illegally, then you should be removed,” he said. “And in this case, that includes families.”
Some mayors are responding to the report with anger and intransigence.
Chicago’s Mayor Lori Lightfoot said that she had cancelled access to ICE of their police databases, and sounded off to the department about her opposition to the raids.
“I have also personally spoken with ICE leadership in Chicago and voiced my strong objection to any such raids,” Lightfoot said.
“Further, I reiterated that CPD will not cooperate with or facilitate any ICE enforcement actions,” she added.
