Mayor Rahm Emanuel was the point person in the first introductory meeting Tuesday between Archbishop Blase Cupich and President Obama.
A spokesman for the Archdiocese says the Archbishop pledged to help as the President asked if the Catholic Church would be a partner in making Immigration reforms.
The meeting came just before the President was set to speak on his executive action on immigration at the Copernicus Community Center.
Cupich said in a statment Wednesday that he supported the Preisdent's annoucement of administrative relief for immigrant families.
"This is a time for momentary celebration, a time to give thanks for a first step toward immigration reform for all of those who are being granted this relief. It is also a time to mobilize our communities to assist in helping those affected by the President’s actions to realize the full benefit of what is being offered," Cupich said. ""However, we must not forget that there are millions of people left out
of these recent relief decisions, still forced to live in the shadows."
