Chicago: Sanctuary City?

Chicago, I’ve personally never been but let’s say I had an important meeting in downtown Chicago, how do you expect it’d go?  I guess it’d be smooth sailing but let’s check the stats.

As of 11/14/2016, there have been roughly 4,000 shooting victims and 674 murders according to the Chicago Tribune.

Chicago Rahm Emanuel issued a statement declaring that the city he rules over would sustain it’s sanctuary status even if President-elect Trump mandates otherwise.  The sanctuary issued to immigrants is not under question in this article.  Chicago law basically eliminates any chance of law enforcement questioning locals about their immigration status. It offers a layer of comfort to the confounds of the city.  Any individual that clearly risks their life to be in this freedom we embrace deserves some credit, they surely deserve some credit if they’re an individual who makes it to America and stumbles their way to Chicago; they’ve chosen a sanctuary that should be in a constant state of emergency.

President-elect Trump issued his own statement on the issue during 60 Minutes.  He proclaimed that his immigration process would target criminals, drugs & gangs.  Are criminals, drugs & gangs the main factor in the violence throughout the city?  These shootings are not committed by ordinary citizens that roam the streets; they’re committed by men & women tied to the muzzles of gunshots and remnants of chalk.  Mornings are embraced by both sides.  The ordinary are thankful for the light outside, it lets them conduct their daily lives with a clear view of violence.  The criminals are grateful for another day they’ve encountered.  Air.  Food.  Usage.  Violence.

While illegal immigrants account for about 3.5 percent of the U.S population, they represented 36.7 percent of federal sentences in FY 2014 following criminal convictions” – Breitbart News

At-the-moment is it wrong to assume that the 2016 stats are going to be within the same range?  Rahm Emanuel was Obama’s Chief of Staff from January 20, 2009 – October 1, 2010.  He then launched a campaign for Mayoral duties of Chicago, winning with 55% of the vote.  Although Rahm has bodies piling up, blowing past him like tumbleweeds; he has a clear vision of pressing scenarios that shouldn’t be the focus of his attention. Sanctuary Cities will more than likely sustain their purpose in one way or another.  Activities that only elate my argument, the Chicago Cubs are World Series Champions & the only thing I think about when I hear of Chicago is this story… Aaren O’Connor

It seems Rahm is riding out his term. He hasn’t improved in the areas that actually matter.
