Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel could pay a hefty price for insisting on harboring illegal aliens in Obama’s hometown. The idea that Sanctuary cities protect American citizens from the crimes of illegal aliens is a myth. Immigration, sanctuary cities, and violent crime was at the top the agenda when Attorney General Jeff Sessions traveled to Las Vegas Wednesday, to meet with representatives from federal, state, and local law enforcement at the U.S. Attorney’s Office..
Just his month, the Democratic mayor of Chicago Rahm Emanuel announced a “Welcome to Chicago Ordinance” making the windy city a sanctuary city for undocumented aliens. Well guess what – he faces up to ten years in prison and that’s the law:
The current code word for Chicago’s daily shootings and killings is not murder but “violence.” No mention is made by the mayor or the Democratic officials that gangs committing such violence are Hispanic and include large numbers of illegal aliens.
Chicago, Ill. now ranks above Montgomery County, Md., and Los Angeles, Calif., both with sanctuary designations, as home to the nation’s most vicious illegal alien criminal gangs.
In 2016, Chicago registered 786 or 762 homicides and 4, 368 or 4,331 people shot. Numbers vary according to the reporting organization. The Chicago officials always opt for the lowest number — not always the correct number.
In June 2017, President Trump announced sending more feds to Chicago to prosecute gun crimes. The Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives Bureau (ATF) of the Department of Justice (DOJ) agents will augment the city and county police, but not do the day to day patrols necessary to stop violence.
Breitbart reports on the Senate Judiciary Committee hearing titled, “The MS-13 Problem: Investigating Gang Membership, its Nexus to Illegal Immigration, and Federal Efforts to End the Threat.”
Sen. John Kennedy (R-LA) asked the witnesses, which included officials from various law enforcement segments of the federal government, about the role “so-called sanctuary cities” play in the problem.
Albence identified Chicago, New York, and San Francisco as being part of an extensive list of sanctuary cities that ignore federal immigration laws and are a contributing “factor” to the deadly MS-13 problem facing the United States.
But believe it or not, Sen. Dick Durbin (D-IL) actually tried to defend Chicago’s status as a sanctuary city, blaming President Donald Trump’s administration of refusing to devote federal funds to help Chicago combat violent crimes.: “I’m proud to represent it [Chicago] and make no mistake if MS-13 members engage in criminal activity, they’re going to be prosecuted. We’re not going to look the other way,”
Yes, of course it’s Trump’s fault, but what Dickie Durbin didn’t mention was that Mayor Rahm Emanuel has defiantly defended the city’s status as a sanctuary city to the dismay of the new administration and currently, there are “more than” 10,000 MS-13 gang members — accused of extortion, murder, and rape, among other crimes — operating in “at least” 46 states and the nation’s capital, according to the federal government.
Shouldn’t Rahm be in prison for aiding and abetting these crimes? What say you?
