Chicago Celts for Immigration Reform Lobby State Legislators

The Chicago Celts for Immigration Reform lobbied along with other Illinois immigrant groups in Springfield yesterday, 16th May 2014.  They met with state legislators to press them on upcoming legislation designed to curb deportations.  Over 400,000 immigrants are deported annually by Immigration and Customs Enforcement, tearing families apart and destroying the trust between police and immigrant communities.
The Chicago Celts also met with Secretary of State Jesse White to thank him for his support of the new Temporary Visitors Drivers License, which allows the undocumented to secure a license.  They also shared some problems that have arisen in its roll out and secured the Secretary’s commitment to working through the issues.
