Gov. Pritzker comes to Aurora to sign order supporting immigrant rights

Gov. J.B. Pritzker came to Aurora Thursday to sign an executive order supporting immigrant and refugee rights in Illinois.

But he took the opportunity to assail President Donald Trump and contrast the president’s view of immigration with his own.

“With our president doing everything that he can to attack immigrants and refugees in our state, I want to make it clear from the beginning of my administration that we’re going to stand up for all of our children and families,” Pritzker said during the event at Family Focus on Aurora’s East Side. “We need comprehensive immigration reform, including border security, that is smart, that works, but this president is intent on building some unnecessary wall as a symbol of division. And he’s willing to undermine our democracy to do it.”

Pritzker came to Aurora to sign an executive order he said would “protect immigrants and refugees and allow all our diverse immigrant communities to thrive.”
