Just In: President Trump Takes Matters Into His Own Hands As It Is Being Reported That DHS Is Deploying 150 Agents To Chicago

By

Earlier this month President Trump said the: ‘… federal government was “ready, willing and able” to intervene over the surge of shootings in New York City and Chicago.

“Chicago and New York City crime numbers are way up,” he wrote. “Federal Government ready, willing and able to help, if asked!”

In Chicago, between 11:09 p.m Saturday and 2:15 a.m. Sunday, 13 people were killed and 59 injured in shootings, according to the Chicago Sun-Times.

Of course the Mayor of Chicago, Ms. Lightfoot, wants nothing to do with President Trump.

The Chicago Tribune went on to report:

‘The U.S. Department of Homeland Security is crafting plans to deploy about 150 federal agents to Chicago this week, the Chicago Tribune has learned, a move that would come amid growing controversy nationally about federal force being used in American cities.

The Homeland Security Investigations, or HSI, agents are set to assist other federal law enforcement and Chicago police in crime-fighting efforts, according to sources familiar with the matter, though a specific plan on what the agents will be doing had not been made public.

One city official said the city was aware of the plan but not any specifics. The Chicago Police Department had no immediate comment.

One Immigration and Customs Enforcement official in Chicago, who asked not to be named because they were not authorized to speak on the matter, confirmed the deployment was expected to take place. The official noted that the HSI agents, who are part of ICE, would not be involved in immigration or deportation matters.’
