‘SICKENING’: New Memo Shows Chicago Police Instructed to ‘Not Cooperate’ with ICE Agents

posted by Hannity Staff - 9.30.19

A recently released memo shows members of the Chicago Police Department were instructed to “not cooperate” with ICE agents in “situations involving immigration arrests.”

“Instead of assisting DHS upon request, officers are instructed to wait for their supervisor to arrive, the memo said. Once the supervisor arrives, ‘if the request is to assist with an immigration arrest or detention, CPD personnel will leave the scene as directed by the CPD supervisor, according to the memo,” reports Fox News.

“CPD confirmed the memo came from an internal superior but would not say if the directive came from the mayor. The mayor’s office has not responded to requests for comment,” adds Fox.

“See what happens when that happens and a DHS agent is injured because of a lack of response by CPD. Sickening what’s happening here,” a ranking CPD source told Fox News.

Chicago’s progressive Mayor Lori Lightfoot confirmed this week that her city will not comply with any future immigration raids; blocking ICE agents from accessing the police department’s vast databases.

“Chicago is and will always be a welcoming city that will never tolerate ICE tearing our families apart,” said Lightfoot at a press conference Wednesday.

“The Chicago Police Department will not cooperate with ICE. That means that they will not team up with ICE to detain any resident. We’ve also cut off access from ICE to any CPD databases and that will remain permanent,” she added.

Lightfoot joins fellow Democrats in their latest attempt to block the Trump administration’s crackdown on illegal immigration across the country.

Failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton joined Rep. Ocasio-Cortez and Speaker Pelosi Thursday; posting instructions online for illegal immigrants to use if confronted by federal agents in upcoming raids.

“Por favor comparte,” said Clinton; Spanish for “Please Share.”

AOC posted similar instructions earlier Thursday.

“ICE will launch raids across 10 major cities this SUNDAY. Check your neighbors & know your rights. Remember: no one can enter your home without a *judicial warrant.* Sometimes ICE will try to show other papers to get in your house. Judicial warrants are from a court,” posted AOC on social media.

“No matter who you are or what your status is, this is the United States of America – where ALL people have rights. Know yours. Prepare. Visit (link: http://WeHaveRights.US) WeHaveRights.US to learn how to handle this & other ICE encounters in multiple languages,” she added. “f people come knocking, you do NOT have to open your door unless there is a signed judicial warrant.

ANTI-ICE: Backlash Builds After Children ‘SMASH’ Piñata Dressed as ICE Agent at Chicago Block Party

posted by Hannity Staff - 7.24.19

A community block party in Chicago is under fire after footage emerged of children attacking a piñata shaped as a federal ICE agent; sparking widespread complaints from members of the law enforcement community.

“The event was organized by a chamber of commerce comprised of over 25 East Side businesses.  A representative said they never would have imaged their event would cause commotion,” reports CBS Chicago. “But one the people behind the group that brought the piñata said they were banking on making a statement during East Side Community Day in Chicago.”

“Some parents were holding their kids to hit the piñata,” said Anthony Martinez of local activist group Los Brown Berets. “We’re just making a statement… Taking children from their parents, separating them.”

Chicago’s progressive Mayor Lori Lightfoot confirmed this week that her city will not comply with any future immigration raids; blocking ICE agents from accessing the police department’s vast databases.

“Chicago is and will always be a welcoming city that will never tolerate ICE tearing our families apart,” said Lightfoot at a press conference Wednesday.

BUSTED! Chicago Mayor Caught on Hot Mic Calling Police Union Boss ‘A Clown’ at Council Meeting

posted by Hannity Staff - 7.25.19

Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot stunned a City Council meeting Wednesday; calling the Fraternal Order of Police boss a “clown” on a hot microphone.

“It’s no secret that Mayor Lightfoot does not get along with the Fraternal Order of Police (FOP),” reports Fox News. “However, it was still surprising when, during the City Council meeting, she was caught on a microphone insulting the group’s second in command.”

“Oh, back again, this FOP clown,” said Lightfoot.

Lori Lightfoot weighed-in last weekend on her city’s unprecedented gang violence; blaming nearby Indiana for the flow of guns into the region.

“Previously we had a law enforcement first and only strategy and it wasn’t working. It’s not working when you talk about neighborhoods where the unemployment rate is 25% or higher. It’s not working when you think about the fact that in many communities, 90% or more of residents are depending on public assistance and where neighborhoods haven’t been invested in, where there’s no real legitimate economic activity,” said Lightfoot.

“The fact that you can cross the border, go into Indiana and purchase military-grade weapons at any number with no background check is a terrible thing, not only for a city but look at the devastation that gun violence is wreaking every single day in our community,” she added.

Lightfoot confirmed last week that her city will not comply with any future immigration raids; blocking ICE agents from accessing the police department’s vast databases.

“Chicago is and will always be a welcoming city that will never tolerate ICE tearing our families apart,” said Lightfoot at a press conference Wednesday.

“The Chicago Police Department will not cooperate with ICE. That means that they will not team up with ICE to detain any resident. We’ve also cut off access from ICE to any CPD databases and that will remain permanent,” she added.
