On Wednesday, AG Jeff Sessions reported that there would be new restrictions placed on Sanctuary Cities…
According to Breitbart.com…
In a statement through the Department of Justice (DOJ), Sessions said sanctuary cities would not be allowed to participate in the Public Safety Partnership program until they prove that they have properly dropped their status and made efforts to reduce violent crimes by illegal aliens.
“By protecting criminals from immigration enforcement, cities and states with so-called ‘sanctuary’ policies make all of us less safe,” Sessions said in the statement. “We saw that just last week, when an illegal alien who had been deported twenty times and was wanted by immigration authorities allegedly sexually assaulted an elderly woman in Portland, a city that refuses to cooperate with immigration enforcement.”
“By forcing police to go into more dangerous situations to re-arrest the same criminals, these policies endanger law enforcement officers more than anyone,” Sessions continued. “The Department of Justice is committed to supporting our law enforcement at every level, and that’s why we’re asking ‘sanctuary’ jurisdictions to stop making their jobs harder.”
“By taking simple, common-sense considerations into account, we are encouraging every jurisdiction in this country to cooperate with federal law enforcement,” Sessions said. “That’s what 80 percent of the American people want them to do, and that will ultimately make all of us safer—especially law enforcement on our streets.”
Then, yesterday, WLSAM.com reported that
Mayor Emanuel says he’s going to sue the Trump Justice Dept on Monday over its new Sanctuary City rules.New rules just out prevent Sanctuary Cities like Chicago to get certain law enforcement grants and so the mayor says Chicago will file suit to kill the rules and get the millions in question.
In an interview with WLS-AM for Sunday’s edition of “Bill Cameron and Connected to Chicago”, the mayor said “We are not going to be put in a position of choosing who we are as a welcoming city and strengthening our police dept. These are exactly the kind of training and technology you want to be investing in right now and also do it in a way that the community’s involved.”
The Mayor also tells Cameron that he’s no longer Bruce Rauner’s friend, even as Rauner said this week he still considers the two of them to be friends.
So, basically, “Tiny Dancer” wants to have his burrito and eat it, too.
Emmanuel, in the great tradition of Chicago Politics, wants to defy Federal Law and provide safe harbor for those who are in our country illegally, in defiance of our laws.
However, at the same time, he is accutely aware that the gangs have taken over the city and the bodies of those Chicagoans who are murdered nightly through gang and other violence are stacking up like cordwood.
What’s a Liberal Democrat Mayor to do?
If he allows ICE to sweep through Chicago, round up the illegal aliens and transport them home, Emmanuel loses the biggest Democrat voting bloc since Sam “Momo” Giancana arranged for Dead Chicagoans to vote for JFK.
Chicago Homicide Watch reported yesterday that
At least 14 people were killed last week as Chicago passed the 400-homicide mark for the year nearly a week ahead of last year’s pace, when the homicides numbers were the highest in two decades. The victims included a mother shot while walking with her young son, and a man stabbed to death in a luxury apartment, a crime which has sparked a nationwide manhunt.
Mayor Emmanuel wants to enforce the law and break it at the same time.
Liberal Democrats are always the first to manufacture some sort of “oppressed” people.
However, they are also the first to holler “POLICE”! when their own lives are threatened.
Unless ol’ Rahm can get violent crime in Chicago under control, there will be no tax dollars left to bribe the illegal aliens with to go to the polls and vote for Democrats in the next election.
And, if he were to get the funding for more police officers, what’s “Tiny Dancer” going to tell the new recruits?
Arrest the Gang Bangers but leave the Illegals?
To borrow from a famous phrase in the Classic Movie, “The Godfather”..
Wouldn’t that be like saying
Leave the gun. Take the cannoli?
Only in this case it would be
Take the thugs. Leave the illegals.
Until He Comes,
