A Chicago workshop for young illegal aliens drew over 11,000 seeking help on how to take advantage of Obama’s Executive order stopping enforcement of immigration on the undocumented under 30. Isn’t it just so Chicago that the city would be helping these youngsters find out how to get temporary work documents and a driver’s license. The machine is humming.
The turnout for Wednesday’s Dream Relief workshop in Chicago was so strong that organizers began turning people away. Locals know the venue as Navy Pier, but Rep. Luis Gutierrez called it something different.
“Navy Pier is today’s Ellis Island. And while they saw New York City, today, they see Chicago,” Gutierrez said.
The line of undocumented students wrapped around Navy Pier and at one point across the Chicago River to apply for deferred action to allow them, at least in the short-term, not to worry about deportation. Organizers estimated the turnout at more than 11,000 young people. —NBC Chicago5
How touching that Chicago Mayor Rahmbo stopped by to announce $250K in funding for the Dream Relief effort. You have to hand it to Democrats in Chicago. They well know how to kick-off the minting process of millions of new Democrat voters. And who the heck will call them on it? Show us something, Speaker Boehner. Yeah, we know, fat chance, you walk-behinder.
