On July 26, 2020, Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot declared on CNN’s “State of the Union” that the Windy City is being “inundated with guns” from other states.
She then called on President Donald Trump to pass gun control measures if he was genuinely serious about fixing the situation in Chicago.
Axios reported that at least “414 people have been murdered in Chicago through July 19.”
“The fact of the matter is our gun problem is related to the fact that we have too many illegal guns in our streets — 60% of which come from states outside of Illinois. We are being inundated with guns from states that have virtually no gun control, no background checks, no ban on assault weapons,” Lightfoot commented.
“That is the thing that if the president really wanted to help, that and the other things I identified in my letter he could do today, tomorrow. But he’s not really interested in helping in that way,” she added.
Last week, Trump and Attorney General Bill Barr announced that the Justice Department would “immediately surge” law enforcement to Chicago in order to tame the violence. Lightfoot claims to have received promises that the federal agents sent to Chicago would be focused on dealing with gun violence instead of targeting protesters.
“No troops, no agents that are coming in outside of our knowledge, notification and control that are violating people’s constitutional rights. That’s the framework,” Lightfoot remarked.
“We can’t just allow anyone to come into Chicago, play police in our streets and neighborhoods when they don’t know the first thing about our city. That’s a recipe for disaster,” she concluded.
Like most leftist elected officials, Lightfoot prefers to blame outside forces for her city’s dilapidated state as opposed to her misguided policies.
Taking responsibility is not the Left’s strong suit.
WTF: Border Wall Construction Crew is Busted for Smuggling from Mexico in Texas
According to a report form Breitbart News, Border Patrol agents tasked with patrolling the Rio Grande City Station spotted a pickup truck close to Rio Grande in Fronton on July 20, 2020.
The agents witnessed the vehicle parking close to a new wall construction site. A number of individuals were spotted putting items onto the back of the truck and then driving off toward Highway 83.
Then, the vehicle turned east and started heading toward Roma, Texas. The agents eventually carried out a traffic stop on a yellow and black Ford F-250.
The suspect did not comply with the stop and started fleeing on foot south on Lincoln Avenue and headed towards the border. Jaeson Jones of Breitbart noted that this “common tactic is known as a ‘bailout.’”
Agents saw the driver dive right into the Rio Grande and swim his way back into Mexico. Focusing their attention back at the F-250, agents arrested five people who were seen loading the truck. Law enforcement sources reported that these individuals were in the U.S. illegally.
The vehicle was allegedly registered to CMF Leasing in Fort Worth, Texas. There were decals on the truck that promoted Southwest Valley Constructors (SWVC), a firm that is currently contracted to build a border wall system.
On top of that, the investigation revealed that the driver was identified as a resident of Roma who was by employed SWVC, according to Border Patrol agents account of the incident.
Law enforcement sources informed Breitbart Texas that the driver has a prior history of smuggling activity.
On May 28, 2019, U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) partnered with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) to award a contract to construct about three miles of new bollard wall system on federally lands situated within the Rio Grande Valley Sector.
Kiewit Infrastructure West Co. received a contract for $42,860,000. In addition, Kiewit has an office located at the same address in Fort Worth where the F-250 is registered at.
The road to securing America’s border will not be easy.
America is dealing with a failed state in Mexico, so there will be plenty of bad actors looking to exploit America’s flawed border policies and undermine its sovereignty.
Thankfully, the U.S. has a presidential administration that is quickly working to tackle border security.
