The Village of Skokie is home to residents who have joined us from at least one hundred areas all over the world. The Village has welcomed them into our culture, religions, businesses and social life. The Village understands that some Skokie residents are concerned about the threatened ICE raids announced for the Chicagoland area this weekend. The Village shares their concern and pursuant to the Skokie Village Code, Village of Skokie staff or Skokie Police officers will not support or assist with immigrant enforcement operations in any way.
If anyone has questions about their rights or safety, please call the Illinois Coalition for Immigrant and Refugee Rights at 1-855-435-7693 or visit www.icirr.org.
