Trump Sends In The FEDS To Clean Up Chicago- Here’s What We Know

One of the problems that President Trump wants to tackle is the crime epidemic and violence that Chicago is experiencing, thanks to the failed policies of the democrats. 

During the campaign, Trump cited the problems:

“Chicago murder rate is record setting – 4,331 shooting victims with 762 murders in 2016. If Mayor can’t do it he must ask for Federal help!”

And now that he is our president, he is demanding that Chicago gets their act together or he’ll send in the feds!

“If Chicago doesn’t fix the horrible “carnage” going on, 228 shootings in 2017 with 42 killings (up 24% from 2016), I will send in the Feds!”

Now, President is taking action and is sending in the FEDS!

The team is called the ‘Chicago Crime Guns Strike Force.’

Daily Mail reports that the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives is looking to send 20 more agents to Chicago, just a week after President Donald Trump tweeted he would ‘send in the Feds’ to the city to curb surging gun violence.


Mayor Rahm Emanuel’s office said he hadn’t been told about the move, but welcomed the extra federal resources he has asked the president for.

“We have received no word from the federal government to confirm these reports, but it would be welcome news if the administration has indeed agreed to one of Mayor Emanuel’s requests for federal resources,” Emanuel’s spokesperson told the press.

n ATF spokesman wouldn’t comment on the deployment specifically, but said they’re definitely trying to help the Windy City.


“ATF is exploring various options as we are committed to furthering law enforcement efforts in Chicago,” the spokesperson added. “One of those options is to send additional agents to Chicago on permanent transfers. ATF is still early in the process of developing strategies and will be prepared to discuss these options further once plans are finalized.”

ATF headquarters in Washington sent out a bulletin to all field offices looking for agents to volunteer for permanent transfer to Chicago.

In the bulletin, they noted there have been 4,386 shootings and more than 750 homicides in 2016 alone, which is a 58% increase over 2015. It goes on to say, “ATF is committed to helping Chicago law enforcement partners to prevent and reduce these violent killings and assaults.”

Emanuel said in addition to the ATF agents, he would also like Drug Enforcement and FBI agents to help with the crime that has crippled the city in recent years.

God Bless.
