All the latest moves coming from Jeff Sessions would seem to imply that the beleaguered Attorney General has every intent of aggressively pushing forward with Trump’s agenda in order to mend broken fences with the White House and try to keep his job. The latest such move comes in the form of the following rather direct official statement from Sessions in response to Chicago’s lawsuit filed earlier this morning regarding federal funding, or lack thereof rather, for sanctuary cities.
Among other things, Sessions scolded Chicago’s Mayor, Rahm Emanuel, saying that “no amount of federal taxpayer dollars will help a city that refuses to help its own residents.” Meanwhile, Sessions also took direct aim at Chicago’s soaring violent crime rate pointing out, as we have on many occasions, that the city recorded more murders in 2016 than New York and L. A. combined.
‘No amount of federal taxpayer dollars will help a city that refuses to help its own residents.”
