City of Chicago signs Resolution in support of Diversity Visas

May 22, 2013SarahBlog

The Chicago City Council adopted a resolution on Wednesday, May 8, 2013 in support of UAO’s advocacy to include Diversity Visa Program in the proposed comprehensive immigration reform bill. The diversity visa program is one of the few options available for Africans to come to the US as immigrants. Eliminating the program will have a negative impact on the future flow of black immigration.

In this historic moment, we would like to thank Alderman Will Burns (4th ward) for his tireless effort to have this resolution adopted in the City of Chicago.
