Maldonado Statement of Support for Ending Trump's Executive Order Banning Muslim Refugees
(February 9, 2017) As many of my long supporters know, I have been part of the immigration reform movement for over 20 years now. But I didn't just advocate for comprehensive immigration reform.
I made Cook County the first Sanctuary County in the nation.
It seemed groundbreaking in 2007 when I introduced this ordinance declaring that Cook County was "Fair and Equal for Immigrants." Since then, I have been heartened to witness the City of Chicago follow suit, along with many other cities and counties across the nation.
I have been heartened to see this ground swell of support for immigrants, refugees and travelers. This is the movement we need to fix our broken immigration system.
