With Trump's talks of building walls, the border patrol detaining families at the border in jail-like cells and children dying in the border patrol's custody, many non-citizens worry about their future and their very lives. If you are one of those individuals, you need to prepare should a member of law enforcement detain you or worse, put you through an immigration raid in Chicago.
While Chicago is one of the many sanctuary cities across the United States, that does not necessarily mean that all non-U.S. citizens in the area of the rest of Illinois can rest easily. The current federal administration has made many threats about changes to immigration laws and rules and has enacted some so that the future may well feel uncertain. During this time, remaining informed can be of extreme importance to all immigrants so that they know how to protect themselves and their loved ones.
