And it Begins

  • The Justice Department on Friday took its first steps to strip Chicago and Cook County of some crime-fighting grants as part of a drive to deny federal money to so-called “sanctuary cities” shielding illegal immigrants.

    Chicago Police Superintendent Eddie Johnson and Cook County Board President Toni Preckwinkle were two of nine local officials sent a Justice Department letter setting a June 30 deadline to declare compliance with federal laws or risk losing $3.2 million in Justice Department grants.

    Mayor Rahm Emanuel remained defiant: “Neither the facts, nor the law are on their side,” he said.

    Besides Chicago and Cook County, letters were sent to officials in New York City, New Orleans, Philadelphia, Las Vegas, Miami, Milwaukee, and California.
Actually, Rahm, the law is on their side. It's a Federal law that Sparklefarts refused to enforce, but never actually got rescinded in Congress. You remember Congress, right Rahm? Laws and stuff are passed there. Usually.

And the facts are that illegals cost cities, states and the nation far more than they "contribute." And they are about to cost Chicago/Cook County taxpayers another $13 million plus in much-needed crime-fighting dollars...unless there's been some unnoticed drop in crime we haven't noticed.

The demorats are rapidly digging themselves a grave for the forthcoming election cycles. The demorats are driving indies away with their radical viewpoints. And with no where to go the indies will vote repub. The chairman of the DNC recently said that there is no place in the demorat party for pro-life demorats. And guess where those pro-life demorats where go to? The repub party. The demorat party is becoming the party of identity politics, abortions and socialism, ultimately pushing normal people away. And just because HRC did not win.

Between crime and illegals cities controlled by demorats will descend into the abyss of criminal mayhem, while the rest of the nation embraces a moral compass. Accelerating this will be a shortage of money, either due to a lack of federal funding or taxes because people are fleeing progressive cities and states.

Rhamulus and Prickwinkle will soon feel the sting of a bitch slap by the federal government and its not like they can strong arm the feds for the money. AG Sessions will simply be telling them to suck it long and suck it hard. This is going to be fun to watch. I've never heard of a federal agency being forced by a local government body to give grant money.

Not enough to force any meaningful change. That minimal loss will be ineffective, so they will have to do better. Maybe cut it by $75 million, or the amount needed to ensure each alderman gets his annual $1.5 million slush fund, money they can spend for profit, then, maybe, there will be some thought about chamge.

Your local liberal democrats won't let this opportunity pass by. They'll "just have to raise taxes" to make up the shortfall and it "will all be the fault of those republicans." Those darn republicans wanting to enforce laws that have been ignored so long by the last joke of an administration.
These aren't new laws, they're just American laws. Why don't you take a look at some of these other countries and see what the penalty is for "sneaking in"? Start with those middle east countries that are one of the darlings of the media these days. That'll be an eye opener!

The attorney general needs to send in all of his people directly to City Hall and the County building start the forensic audit arrest all the people who refuse to enforce the federal laws in the highest elected offices in this corrupt city state county indictments and all of them The good law-abiding people that live here are tired of this national nose constantly the high crime rate the carnage the theft by the corporation of the elected lawbreaking criminal enterprise. The only solution besides cutting the funding which also hurts the good people the criminals that are elected pander to the criminals as simple as that it is been going on now for years do you like the Democrats have ruined this once great city they have ruined the Chicago Police Department by taking away finding the police at fault constantly this is ridiculous we need to help even the doctors at Northwestern Hospital are suffering from another new syndrome called compassion fatigue from treating all the gun shot victims the carnage they are saying it is worse then the war zone in the Middle East in there 100% correct Chicago police officers are seeing the excess of carnage constantly which summer quickly approaching it's going to get worse. Will you have the elected tying the hands of this police department and the 24 hour a day seven days a week dishonest media bastardizing the police department constantly what do you expect the outcome to be?

In the late 1970s and 1980s many people supported the police from the elected to the citizens so many vehicles had bumper stickers for for example let's say we support our police and police deserve A contract you don't see it in like that anymore the mediately elected have destroyed the once decent relationship police officers had with the citizens. You wonder why president Donald Trump was elected the forgotten man and woman of many areas of this country are tired of it and he was put in to drain the swamp's which arvest the swamps filled with elected creatures destroy the once great United States of America we the people will be making America great again. It will take time this is our country we will take it back one Way or the other. As Patrick Swayze said in the movie roadhouse we will be nice until it becomes time not to be nice!

They are not looking for our help in kicking down doors and grabbing some mother of 4 who works at a taqueria. All they want is to be notified when illegals get arrested so they can scoop up the trouble makers and ship em off. Why is that a bad thing? How many times have any of us arrested the same jagoff over and over again and wished we could ship them out? How better off would the communities be if jagoff just disappeared back to the motherland? The few remaining sanctuary cities are becoming the dumping ground for illegals which costs the communities millions of dollars in govt. assistance. Each anchor they pop out is entitled to all kind of welfare assistance. Would it be a bad thing if people who were here illegally were fo scared to death of being sent back that it would deter them from committing crimes?

Only a democrat and bleeding heart head up their collective asses liberals would risk hundreds of millions of dollars in funding (some estimate closer to $1 billion) to protect people here illegally who are also commiting other crimes.

Cook County Adult Probation dept Chief Haywood and his two liberal asswipe's assistant chiefs MAT Solbeski and Nicole Raymond have refused to notify ICE on all illegal convicted felons. Haywood and his Assistant Chief MAT Solbeski don't even live in Crook County Illinois. Both have county cars they take home. Mat Solbeski lives in Grundy county. This asswipe scumbag liberal with chief Haywood told all weapons officers that they are not lawenforcement. Both these liberal asswipe's ordered ALL weapons units officers not to make ANY ARREST or conduct searches on convicted felons homes. Theses liberal asswipe's have disbanded the dept weapons gang unit. The tax payers of Cook County need to phone the chief justice TIm EVANS and ask him why theses two are protecting ILLEGAL CONVICTED FELONS. Theses two liberal asswipe's need to be fired. The mission statement of the adult probation dept. Creating a safer community. The only COMMUNITY these liberal asswipe's are protecting ARE ILLEGAL CONVICTED FELONS and criminals.

On top of losing hundreds of millions of dollars for protecting them, why not waste even more money on them:

**Chicago’s city council voted to authorize a $3 million program by Mayor Rahm Emanuel that will grant special city ID’s for illegal immigrants and other groups.**

A chicago ID???? How completely f**king useless is that???? An ID that has no validity to it and has no paper trail of verification means absolutely nothing. The next thing will be them crying discrimination whey the banks will not lend them money or they cant get a car loan with it. The mexican consular office already gives them a bullsh*t matricular ID ... The state already gives them a bullsh*t ID by way of a temporary drivers license that ironically specifically says on it that it is NOT to be used for identification purposes. So where is the need for spending $3 mill on another bulls*t ID?

And yet another slap in the face is this:

**It will allow the city clerk to review documents provided by applicants. However, the clerk's office would be barred from collecting or keeping that information.**

They wont even bother to keep any of the bullsh*t information they give on file. They have and keep every bit of information about the citizens in this country AND charge you for doing it through the fees. Yet the poor illegal immigrant gets it for free and without any of the info being retained.

I think I might go get one myself. Sounds like I can walk in with a birth cirtificate written on a hooters napkin and still get an ID. I just havnt figured out what name yet. The ever classic McLovin, John Bigbooty, or Hugh G. Rection.

Seems pretty basic to me.

Just enforce the laws.

Enforce the laws against massive illegal alien smuggling and heroin smuggling. The Cartels smuggle both

Enforce the laws against robbery and murder with illegal hand guns.

Liberals like to pass strict laws against hand guns then they make it impossible for the police to stop, search and catch criminals with these illegal hand guns.

Yep enforce the laws.

4/24/2017 04:20:00 AM

Because it's simple, keeping City Workers in the City gives them revenue. Imagine all City Workers not living in the City. Who the fuck is going to pay all those taxes, water bills and .7 cent bags. Right now we are screwed, on the north side where the Aldermen wants to put Section #8 in the area, property prices have dropped in the last couple of months. Looking at the south side of the city, a similar price drop has occurred, however, it's because people in area's of high crime are fleeing west and westsiders fleeing north to other neighborhoods. In the end of the year 2016 property values in the Midway area were on the rise, but they also dropped recently. If the City Workers all sold their properties in a move frenzy, no one would be able to recover their money from a real-estate investment. Lastly, you would have to move at least 40 miles away from the city and even that might be to close. Three of us CPD dudes are thinking of buying a 20 plus acre farm and building a compound. It's difficult to get away from the Democrat's.

Rahm is at war with the police.

There's so much money the Fed can withhold for just Chicago-Cook County.
What I'd like to see is the Fed withhold the already appropriated funds granted under obama just before he left office, like the Fed Transit Admin $1+ billion CTA Red Line projects. Same with the continual billions FAA appropriated for Ohare. Then there's Rauners never ending expressway repaving and Corrupt Cook Co's Homeland Security Agency.

I wish the Fed wouldn't have given them until June 30 to comply, that's giving Rahm & PrickCanker time to phony up some scam and no extension to comply.
There should be a strict full 4 year penalty on all Sanctuary City funding too, not just until compliance is met.

NYC Police Union Chief Slams De Blasio And NYPD Leadership: AG Sessions Is Right

Kerry Picket
Reporter
04/22/2017

Ed Mullins, president of the NYPD’s Sergeants Benevolent Association, slammed New York Mayor Bill de Blasio and NYPD Commissioner James O’Neil for lashing out at Attorney General Jeff Sessions for a Friday Justice Department statement relating to the city’s non-compliance with federal immigration law and crime.

Mullins said in a statement issued Friday that “Sessions is absolutely correct to hold New York and other jurisdictions accountable for their so-called ‘sanctuary policies.’”

“For a long time, Mayor De Blasio and the NYPD’s leadership have failed to heed the warning that refusing to cooperate with federal immigration officials when it comes to criminals and suspected terrorists would have consequences beyond making our City less safe. They have placed officers in an impossible Catch-22: between obeying the directives and orders of their superiors and elected officials on one hand, and the obligation they feel to follow the direction of the law and to cooperate with federal immigration officials on the other,” Mullins said.

Mullins went on to say, “Now the City’s intransigence has placed in jeopardy millions in U.S. Department of Justice grant funds that we count on to help protect our communities. Despite what some politicians may think, law enforcement does not get to choose the laws we uphold, and it is our sworn duty to enforce all laws equally and without bias or preference. Attorney General Sessions is absolutely correct to hold New York and other jurisdictions accountable for their so-called ‘sanctuary policies.’ I just hope the Mayor will finally come to his senses and stop ignoring and harboring violent criminals before it’s too late.”
