CHICAGO --  Some businesses in Chicago’s Little Village neighborhood are reporting a drop in sales.

Some are calling it “the Trump Slump.”  Undocumented immigrants are afraid to leave their homes because they're worried they could be arrested.

The owner of a hair salon and the owner of a grocery store both tell WGN News their sales have fallen off.

Today, some business owners held a meeting with Congressman Luis Gutierrez.

Gutierrez is encouraging people to go about their normal routines.

He says the wholesale immigration raids that people fear are not happening.
