Rahm Emanuel: Illegal Aliens are Fleeing Violent Conditions, So Let’s Move Them to Chicago

Posted by on Jul 27, 2014 at 10:27 am

So the solution to housing children fleeing violence in their home countries is to re-settle them in one of the most violent cities on the planet. Sounds like a plan.

Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel, a former Obama administration chief of staff, wants to expand the city’s efforts to house young illegal immigrants from Central America, reportedly proposing to shelter an additional 1,000 of them by year’s end.

“The influx of unaccompanied child migrants is a growing humanitarian crisis that we can no longer ignore,” said Emanuel, according to The Chicago Tribune. “While we have our own challenges at home, we cannot turn our backs on children that are fleeing dangerous conditions.”

The mayor’s office says the federal government will pay for the youths’ shelter, education, health care, food, safety and social services.

However, officials are trying to get Chicago lawyers to provide free legal services for the youths, who arrived in hopes of staying with U.S. relatives but now face federal deportation hearings.

To be sure, Chicago has its own challenges, including a recent violent-crime wave in which at least 82 people were shot over the Fourth of July holiday weekend, with 16 victims dying.

Meanwhile, the violence continues in Chicago this weekend. Faced with coming to Chicago, perhaps the “migrants” might fare better at home.

    No problemo. Send ALL of them there, and let Emanuel and his flunkies deal with it on their own. Give him no federal money.
