On Monday, Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel announced the filling of the suit complaining about a new DOJ policy attempting to cut off grants to police departments that decline to cooperate with federal immigration officials.
Attorney General Jeff Sessions promptly fired back at Mayor, delivering a strong dose of the truth.
Sessions revealed that the record numbers of murders in Chicago in recent years were attributable in part to Emanuel’s decision to stick with a sanctuary policy that encourages police officers to ignore immigration status of those they encounter.
“No amount of federal taxpayer dollars will help a city that refuses to help its own residents. To a degree perhaps unsurpassed by any other jurisdiction, the political leadership of Chicago has chosen deliberately and intentionally to adopt a policy that obstructs this country’s lawful immigration system,” Sessions said.
Sessions said Chicago officials have adopted “an official policy of protecting criminal aliens.”
Sessions continued about the number of murders in 2016, and said that it should worry everyone as it “is surpassing both New York and Los Angeles combined.“
“The city’s leaders cannot follow some laws and ignore others and reasonably expect this horrific situation to improve,” Sessions concluded.
Jeff Sessions declared “This administration will not simply give away grant dollars to city governments that proudly violate the rule of law and protect criminal aliens at the expense of public safety. So it’s this simple: Comply with the law or forgo taxpayer dollars.”
This is excellent. Our tax dollars are absolutely not going to pay to support sanctuary cities in Chicago or anywhere else! Thank God for President Trump and his team for putting an end to this ridiculous waste of our monies.
If you think that our hard earned tax dollars should NEVER go to supporting illegals, please share this report on Facebook.
