“I am announcing that the Department of Justice will immediately surge federal law enforcement to the city of Chicago. The FBI, ATF, DEA, U.S. Marshals Service and Homeland Security will together be sending hundreds of skilled law enforcement officers to Chicago to help drive down violent crime,” Trump announced Wednesday at a White House event addressing crime in cities.
The president said he would also be sending law enforcement to other cities, “soon,” including Albuquerque.
Under no circumstances will I allow Donald Trump’s troops to come to Chicago and terrorize our residents.

At least 9 more were shot today under her watch.
Maybe she should sit this one out.
