In Chicago, President Donald Trump calls the city an embarrassment to the United States.
Chicago Mayor Lightfoot openly called Immigration and Customs Enforcement “xenophobic” and “racist” in September, and has adamantly refused to allow her police force to respect ICE detainer requests.
President Donald Trump ripped Chicago city leaders for refusing to work with federal immigration authorities during a speech Monday.
“Chicago is, unfortunately, the worst sanctuary city in America,” Trump said at the national police chiefs conference.
“Chicago protects criminals at a level few could even imagine. Last year, in Cook County alone, ICE asked local law enforcement people to ‘please, pretty please, we beg you, we’ll do anything necessary to stop crime. We want to stop crime. Please detain 1,162 people, please,’” the president said. “But in each case, the detainer was denied.”
The comments were the latest in a war of words between the U.S. federal government and the city’s leaders. More
They’re protesting him today – despite his interest in turning things around there. They must like the stuff they’re wallowing in.

President Donald Trump calls it like he sees it! And I see it that way, too! The people in charge in Chicago care more for the “rights” of illegal aliens than they do the citizens of Chicago that they gave their oath to protect!
Like all sanctuary cities, the powers that be put THEIR political interests ahead of the citizens and all Americans.
