The Baltimore Police Department is investigating a string of fires in West Baltimore, home of border security critic and weekend nemesis of President Donald Trump, Elijah Cummings (D-MD).
While authorities are still not positive the fires are connected, there have now been a total of four fires reported in Baltimore, Maryland since early Monday morning.
Baltimore City Fire officials were called for the report of a fire early Monday morning around 2:15 a.m.
A short time later, officials received another call for a fire reported in the area of Edmondson Avenue and Mount Holly Street.
There was a total of four fires reported throughout the morning, according to Baltimore City Fire.
The cause of these fires is currently under investigation.
Baltimore is in the national spotlight this week, after Democrats and their allies in the mainstream media called President Trump racist for pointing out that the city has become a hotbed for blight, decay, and violence on Twitter.
Responding to Cummings, who has been a frequent critic of border security, the United States-Mexico border wall, and the treatment of illegal immigrants who are detained in the United States, President Trump publicly called out the elected official for allowing his district to fall into disarray.
….As proven last week during a Congressional tour, the Border is clean, efficient & well run, just very crowded. Cumming District is a disgusting, rat and rodent infested mess. If he spent more time in Baltimore, maybe he could help clean up this very dangerous & filthy place

The media used these tweets to make the same, tired suggestion that President Trump is racist. However, as Americans have been focusing on the city of Baltimore, the president has been completely vindicated.
Over the weekend, a total of 13 people were shot, and six were killed in the city. One of those shot included a 12-year-old boy, who wandered into a hospital with a bullet wound around 2:00 a.m. Monday morning.
In a wave of weekend violence, at least 13 people were shot and six killed in the city of Baltimore, Maryland, singled out by President Donald Trump as a hotbed of violence and urban decay over the weekend after Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-MD) blasted the president for seeking to secure the southern border.
Local reports indicate the Boston Police Department responded to multiple shootings over the weekend in what amounts to a total of 13 people shot, and six killed. Among those impacted by the shootings is a 12-year-old boy.
The 12-year-old was shot Sunday, walking into a hospital at around 3:00 a.m. on Monday with a 19-year-old man. Both were shot, and both as expected to survive their injuries.
The violence continued into Monday, as a 24-year-old man was shot in broad daylight in the city.
It is worth noting that before the media became fixated on calling President Trump racist at any opportunity, the Baltimore Sun publicly agreed with the president’s assertion that Democrats have failed their cities and left them to become violent pits of despair.

WATCH: Tucker SLAMS Lindsey Graham For EB5 Visa Giveaway Scheme Amidst Coronavirus Epidemic
Graham wants to use the crisis to boost immigration visas.
Tucker Carlson took South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham to task in a segment on his show Thursday night, blasting the opportunistic Senator for seeking to insert an immigration visa giveaway into upcoming Coronavirus stimulus legislation.
Graham is attempting to enact a raise in the annual level of EB-5 visas. The controversial program allows wealthy foreigners to enter the United States on the basis of supposed investment they make into the economy.
Graham is lobbying President Trump to agree to a massive boost to the program-raising annual EB-5 visa levels from a current total of 10,000 to 75,000. Graham also seeks to lower the threshold of investment for an EB-5 from $900,000 to $450,000.
In a display of tone-deaf politics taken to a new level, the EB-5 program Graham seeks to expand is currently commonly used by wealthy Chinese citizens to purchase American residency and citizenship. Allowing a free path to residency for China’s richest multi-millionaires and billionaires almost certainly would provide the Chinese government a means of entryism into major American institutions and society, in an age where the American public is more distrustful and skeptical of Chinese influence than ever before.
Watch the segment here:
Graham has also gone on record advocating for a bailout of big businesses and private companies, while opposing direct basic income transfers to everyday working American families.
American citizenship is not a mere bauble to be offered for sale in a time of crisis, especially considering the EB-5’s dubious benefits on the American economy. The verification mechanisms for the visa recipients’ investments in American jobs are notoriously weak, to the extent that both major parties agreed to scale back the program last year.
America is a country, not merely an economy. It’s well past time Senator Graham gives up his constant attempt to retcon old globalist policies into President Donald Trump’s administration, especially in times of national emergency.
