Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel, a former Obama administration chief of staff, wants to expand the city’s efforts to house young illegal immigrants from Central America, reportedly proposing to shelter an additional 1,000 of them by year's end.Whoa!
"The influx of unaccompanied child migrants is a growing humanitarian crisis that we can no longer ignore," said Emanuel, according to The Chicago Tribune. "While we have our own challenges at home, we cannot turn our backs on children that are fleeing dangerous conditions.”
This, in the Murder Capital of America, where the majority of the victims AND the perpetrators are "people of color" under the age of 25?
And Mayor Rahm wants to bring more young "people of color" into his battle-zone? Talk about "Humanitarian Crisis"!
And he thinks this is "A good Thing".
Hmm ... let's look at a randomly selected news article to illustrate how safe it is to be a Chicago resident.

Top match: "Six Cities with the Worst Murder Rate in the United States" (I know, the link is a duplicate.) I swear, this is the top of the search list results. I don't have to make this stuff up.
