The Hill reports that Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel and Rep. Luis Gutierrez, both Democrats, want to make Chicago the “model” for getting immigrants enrolled in whatever services the government offers, as quickly as possible.
The Windy City is already the “model” for gun control, albeit in a negative way. The city with some of the strictest gun control laws in the country is also persistently one of the most violent cities in America.
But this story is all about how Democrats intend to take advantage of Obama’s lawless amnesty, and turn illegal aliens into welfare recipients.
Rep. Luis Gutiérrez (D-Ill.) and Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel (D) joined forces Wednesday with roughly 50 civic leaders to launch a comprehensive strategy for signing up those immigrants who might become newly eligible for any new benefits coming out of the administration.
“When an announcement comes, we will make sure Chicago is ready, that the community institutions in our neighborhoods are ready, and that we can efficiently inform our community about what is being announced and can help our neighbors sign up,” Gutierrez said in a statement after the meeting.
The Democrats are hoping to prevent the enrollment bottleneck that followed Obama’s 2012 launch of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, which granted work permits to certain qualified illegal immigrants brought to the country as children. Thousands of applicants lined up on Chicago’s Navy Pier, surprising advocates and leading to some delays in processing.
The community leaders attending Wednesday’s meeting at Chicago’s City Hall included immigrant rights advocates, clergy members, education leaders and legal services experts.
This alliance is all about fleecing American taxpayers to get immigrants, legal and mostly illegal, hooked on big government, forever, so they and their descendants will be Democrats on the dole, forever. In a saner time, this announcement alone would be enough to get both junked from office forever.
