CALIFORNIA CHAOS: Trump to TOUR CALIFORNIA as the State SPIRALS Out of Control
President Trump will travel to the ‘Sanctuary State’ of California Tuesday; visiting the US border with Mexico and inspecting various prototypes of his proposed wall while meeting with law enforcement officials in San Diego and Los Angeles.
The President’s trip comes as the war of words between the White House and statewide leaders rapidly escalates; with the Commander-in-Chief blasting the Golden State’s flat-out refusal to cooperate with federal guidelines regarding illegal immigration.
Attorney General Jeff Sessions spoke with officials in Sacramento last week, frankly stating “California, we have a problem” after the mayor of Oakland warned illegal immigrants of impending ICE raids; resulting in nearly 800 undocumented workers who evaded federal agents during the sweeps.
“I mean, frankly, if I wanted to pull our people from California, you would have a crying mess like you’ve never seen in California,” Trump said weeks ago, warning there would be “crime like nobody has ever seen crime in this country.”
The acting Director of ICE Tom Homan echoed the President’s comments in recent days; equating Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf with “gang lookouts” who warn drug-dealers of approaching law enforcement.
The Los Angeles Police Department warned residents of prolonged protests and demonstrations during the presidential visit Monday; adding they’re “prepared for anything.”
CHICAGO SPIRALS: At Least 70 People Shot, 10 Dead Including 4 Children Over Father’s Day Weekend
Gun violence in the nation’s third largest city continued to spiral out of control over the weekend, with at least 70 people shot and 10 dead -including four children- in less than 72 hours.
“Ten people were killed, including four children, and at least 60 others wounded in shootings across Chicago over the weekend, police said.
The youngest of those killed this weekend was 3-year-old Mekhi James. The little boy had just gotten haircut with his stepdad in the 600-block of North Central Avenue at about 6:25 p.m. Saturday when police said a vehicle pulled up next to them in traffic on the West Side and someone started shooting from inside,” reports ABC Chicago.
“These kids are not criminals,” said Chicago Police Chief of Detectives Brendan Deenihan. “They are not gang members. They have nothing to do with the ongoing disputes out there and they just get gunned down for no reason at all.”
“These individuals that are discharging these weapons don’t have a clue what they are sending these families through,” said community activist Andrew Holmes.
