While he could be tackling his cities crime problem, Chicago’s major is attacking an even bigger target: Donald Trump.
On last Monday, Emanuel declared: “To be clear about what Chicago is, it always will be a sanctuary city.” His comments came after Trump’s interview with Lesley Stahl on CBS News “60 Minutes” aired over the weekend.
“What we are going to do is get the people that are criminal and have criminal records, gang members, drug dealers, where a lot of these people, probably 2 million, it could be even 3 million, we are getting them out of our country or we are going to incarcerate,” Trump told Stahl. “But we’re getting them out of our country, they’re here illegally.”
Now, he could find himself in some trouble. As Conservative Daily Post reported; Chicago’s Muslim Mayor, Rahm Emanuel, is defying a federal law by deliberately harboring illegal aliens in Obama’s hometown.
Democrats are “making a big bet and a mistaken one” by defying the federal government to protect their city’s “sanctuary” status, Charles Krauthammer said on Fox News.
President Donald Trump promised to withhold federal funds from cities that protect illegal immigrants from deportation, and trump would be legally allowed to do so.
Among those who’ve vowed to defy Trump on immigration are the mayors of New York, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Seattle, and Philadelphia, among many others. If they want to lose billions of dollars in Federal funding, good for them I guess.
Let’s throw the rest of them in jail too.
