Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel recently pledged that "Chicago will always be a sanctuary city."
Perhaps the mayor could take time from his busy schedule of photo-ops and speechifying to investigate some of the root causes for rampant (and record-setting) gang violence in his city. In January alone, 51 people have been murdered and 246 wounded in what are predominantly a running series of gang conflicts. Last year, nearly 800 people were murdered in the city and roughly 5,000 wounded.
In fact, I'm guessing any real investigation would quickly reveal a significant element of these gangs are dominated by illegal aliens, from MS-13 to the Latin Kings and everything in between.
While I can't say whether all of the following fine looking men and women are illegal aliens, some of the facial paintery would appear to indicate that a decent percentage are*.
But that's all right, Rahm, Jan Schakowsky, Robert Creamer, and the rest of you Marxist nuts.
You're fine with harboring fugitives from the law, so long as they are far, far away from your gated communities, armed guards, and heavy police presence. Let all the poor people deal with the havoc you've wrought, right?
