In a city where citizens desperately need more security, Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel has pledged a $1 million legal fund for illegal immigrants and others trying to avoid deportation.
Emanuel has created this fund to help keep criminals in America at a time when his city is rife with violent crime. Chicago experienced 57% more homicides last year than it did in 2015. A total of 762 people were murdered in the city last year. Chicago saw 1,100 more shooting incidents last year than it did in 2015.
Trump tweeted: “If Mayor can't do it he must ask for Federal help!” Unfortunately, Emanuel is doing everything he can NOT to work with the feds. He is preventing local authorities from complying with federal agencies like Immigrations and Customs Enforcement (ICE).
The money for this illegal immigrant defense fund is draining funds from a larger property tax initiative that was set aside to benefit American taxpayers. Chicago citizens are paying taxes not only to a city that does not enforce the law, but takes their tax dollars and uses them to help illegal immigrants.
