CAIR's Continued Embrace by Chicago Elected Officials
Chicago area politicians again embraced the head of the city's Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) chapter during a public event, despite his organization's roots in a terror support network and ongoing hostility toward law enforcement.
Ahmed Rehab spoke Wednesday at an Illinois Coalition for Immigrant and Refugee Rights (ICIRR) DREAM Relief Rally with U.S. Sen. Dick Durbin, Rep. Luis Gutierrez, Illinois Senate President John Cullerton, Mayor Rahm Emanuel, and Gov. Pat Quinn.
Organized by Gutierrez and the Illinois Coalition for Immigrant and Refugee Rights (ICIRR) the DREAM rally was in honor of the Obama administration's June 15 decision to permit "DREAM Act-eligible youth temporary relief through 'deferred action.'"
