Last night, MSNBC held a town hall in Chicago and it was just as great as you think.

I don’t think I’ve seen a better example of the need for a Class & Race approach to politics in a long time.

‘Sanctuary City’ Mayors Vow to Defy Trump’s Immigration Order
City officials, from New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, New Haven, Syracuse and Austin, Tex., said they were prepared for a protracted fight.
By Liz Robbins

Martin J. Walsh, Boston: “To anyone who feels threatened today, or vulnerable, you are safe in Boston. We will do everything lawful in our powerful to protect you. If necessary, we will use City Hall itself to shelter and protect anyone who’s targeted unjustly. They can use my office, they can use any office in this building. They’ll be able to use this building as a safe space.”

Bill de Blasio, New York: “We’re going to defend all of our people regardless of where they come from, regardless of their immigration status.”

Rahm Emanuel, Chicago: “I want to be clear: We’re going to stay a sanctuary city. There is no stranger among us. Whether you’re from Poland or Pakistan, whether you’re from Ireland or India or Israel and whether you’re from Mexico or Moldova, where my grandfather came from, you are welcome in Chicago as you pursue the American dream.”

Ed Lee, San Francisco, with Sam Liccardo (San Jose) and Libby Schaaf (Oakland): “We will not give in to threats, or political grandstanding. Together, the Bay Area will stay true to our values of inclusiveness, compassion and equality, and united against any and all efforts to divide our residents, our cities, and our country.”
