Oak Park, Illinois, Welcoming City Ordinance

by Oak Park, Illinois

On February 7, 2017, Oak Park, Illinois's Board of Trustees adopted this ordinance designating the community as a welcoming Village where citizenship or immigration status does not factor in any interaction between individuals and municipal employees. Village officials stressed that the ordinance does not violate federal law, but clarifies communications and enforcement relationships between the Village and the federal government. Officials said the ordinance makes it clear that immigration is a federal issue and does not involve the Village or its employees.
