Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel once declared the Windy City a ‘Trump-free’ zone.
Now, the former Obama chief of staff has rolled out an ID program designed to help illegal aliens in an effort to ‘boost’ his 2019 re-election hopes.
From BizPac Review:
Following in the footsteps of California, Chicago Democratic Mayor Rahm Emanuel has introduced municipal ID cards for illegal immigrants that critics fear will help enable them to vote in elections, according to The Chicago Tribune.
The CityKey cards are being praised as a valid form of identification for people voting in Chicago and for those registering to vote — even though it remains illegal for undocumented immigrants to vote.

The card, which was sold as a way for people to get basic services, will be available to the general public in the spring and the program is expected to “boost” Emanuel’s standing with Hispanics in the run-up to his 2019 re-election bid, The Tribune reported.
President Donald Trump is no longer welcome in Chicago, Mayor Rahm Emanuel declared on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert Monday night. “Our motto: A city he’ll never sleep in. We don’t want him,” Emanuel said. “Look, Donald Trump is driving forward looking through the rearview mirror, and I’m not going that way because I want my city going that way and I want it to be a Trump-free zone.”
Emanuel is everything wrong with the country.
He cares more for ‘undocumented immigrants’ than natural born citizens.
Keep it up, Rahm, and President Trump will be re-elected in 2020.
