U.S. Rep. Bobby Rush to Host Forum on Trump’s Anti-Immigrant Policies and Propaganda on Feb. 23 in Chicago

WASHINGTON, D.C.–(ENEWSPF)–February 16, 2017.  As the nation braces itself  against  sustained attacks on immigrant families from the Trump White House, Congressman Bobby L. Rush (D-IL01) today announced plans to host an immigration policy forum entitled, “Navigating Today’s U.S, Immigration Policy.” The forum will be held Thursday, Feb. 23rd at the Illinois Institute of Technology (IIT), 10 W. 35th Street at 5:30 p.m.  The announcement was made in support of “A Day Without Immigrants” protests that have taken place in Chicago and other parts of the country.

Forum participants will include representatives from the American Immigration Lawyers Association, American Civil Liberties Union, Illinois Business Immigration Coalition and the Illinois Coalition for Immigrant and Refugee Rights, among others.

“Today people across the nation are engaged in a day of protest toward the hostile climate coming from Washington,” Rush said. “Over the last several weeks I have received numerous phone calls from my constituents expressing confusion, grave concern and disaffection with the recent actions of the Trump administration regarding his travel and refugee ban. I remain committed to ensuring the clarion call expressed by the Statute of Liberty, “Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free…,” remains the immigration policy of our nation.”
