Attorney General Sessions Releases Statement After City of Chicago Sued Justice Department

Via Billy

Attorney General Jeff Sessions today issued the following statement on the city of Chicago’s lawsuit against the U.S. Department of Justice for withholding federal funds due to sanctuary city status:

“No amount of federal taxpayer dollars will help a city that refuses to help its own residents.

“This administration is committed to the rule of law and to enforcing the laws established by Congress. To a degree perhaps unsurpassed by any other jurisdiction, the political leadership of Chicago has chosen deliberately and intentionally to adopt a policy that obstructs this country’s lawful immigration system. They have demonstrated an open hostility to enforcing laws designed to protect law enforcement — Federal, state, and local — and reduce crime, and instead have adopted an official policy of protecting criminal aliens who prey on their own residents. This is astounding given the unprecedented violent crime surge in Chicago, with the number of murders in 2016 surpassing both New York and Los Angeles combined. The city’s leaders cannot follow some laws and ignore others and reasonably expect this horrific situation to improve.

  1. Democrats will spare no effort to protect their voting base.

  2. Those who are mismanaging cities such as Chicago, seem think that complying with the laws of the land as enacted by Congress and signed into by the President, is selectively optional. And a city council has the authority to dictate what national and foreign policy ought to entail. Yet, that same city (Chicago) can not provide the most basic of services expected; a school system that actually educates its children, and keeping the streets safe enough to use with out the fear of being murdered. Chicago is bankrupt and can not keep its promises to pay out what it has promised. Yet the city leaders will expect and demand that the state of IL and the rest of the countries tax payers will come to bail them out of the financial chaos they have created. I'd rather live in a one room apartment with my ex, than to live any where within a 100 mile radius of Chicago. The only sight worth seeing, is that of Chicago in your rear view mirror.

      Priceless. :)
