Obama’s former Chief of Staff and current Mayor of Chicago defied Trump and then lied to Americans about how “safe” his city is.
Rahm Emanuel held a press conference to let the world know that Chicago would stay a sanctuary city, despite Trump’s desire to shut down all federal funding for cities giving immunity to illegal immigrants.
The decision to remain a sanctuary city is one that many liberal cities have agreed with.
Cities like Portland, Los Angeles, New York and others are standing up against Trump against banning sanctuary cities.
Miami mayor and a few others are not so quick to throw themselves into the liberal agenda, mainly because they fall in states that went red during the election.
Of all the cities and mayors, Rahm Emanuel has been the most vocal in his defense of his sanctuary city.
During a press conference he said to illegal immigrants, “you are safe in Chicago, you are secure in Chicago and you are supported in Chicago.”
The irony is, Chicago is one of the least safe places in the country. The murder rate is skyrocketing and is the most violent city in the country. Is there a correlation?
One YouTube user made a video with part of Emanuel’s speech and a clip to possibly give it some perspective.
How can Rahm Emanuel can go on TV and tell illegal immigrants that they are safe in Chicago, regardless if it is a sanctuary city or not, when two or three murders happen in Chicago daily?
At the end of the day, if you are an illegal immigrant or just a normal person, you probably shouldn’t go to Chicago until they start figuring out how to stop the crime in Chicago.
