With Chicago, a Democrat-run city, out of control, the homicide rate has not slowed down and its leadership has decided to play “activist” rather than lead. They are letting their communities burn to the ground and enough is enough. President Donald Trump and Attorney General Bill Barr have decided to expand the “law and order” project known as “Operation Legend” into Chicago.
Due to the rate of homicides and crime, the government has no choice but to step in.
“This bloodshed must end, this bloodshed will end. Today I’m announcing a surge of federal law enforcement into American communities plagued by violent crime. We’ll work every single day to restore public safety,” President Trump said at a news conference about protests.
This means that federal agents, including FBI officials, U.S Marshals, DEA, and ATF, will be moved from multiple departments into the city to help fight crime as part of the program. The Department of Justice will curb the spike of violent crimes in a city where there has been more than 100 homicides this year.
The Chicago Mayor, Lori Lightfoot, has tweeted “Under no circumstances will I allow Donald Trump’s troops to come to Chicago and terrorize our residents.” Really? She can’t even protect her own residents from being murdered by the dozen, and now she won’t let the Feds step in and protect the Americans trapped in this liberal mess?
This Mayor has allowed Chicago to turn into a war zone. 14 people were just shot at a funeral home in her city and now she is attacking the President for trying to clean up her mess. Gunfire erupted outside a funeral home, including at least four women between the ages of 25 and 38, one of whom was shot in the chest. Other victims include a 40-year-old man who was shot in the chest, arm and forearm, and two men, 32 and 22, who were shot in a hand. Witnesses said they heard gunshots while in their home watching television and came outside to find bodies that were shot up and “laying everywhere.”
“We thought it was a war out here,” a witness told the Chicago Sun-Times. “It’s ridiculous all the shooting that’s going on out here, it really has to stop.” The shooting was gang-related, according to the police.
The resistance, as with most liberals, is just about going against President Trump instead of solving the actual problem.
“They’re supposed to be asking for help and they don’t want to ask, so maybe they’re proud or maybe they think it’s bad politically, but we can’t have what’s happening. We’re going to straighten things out,” President Trump said.
