Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot has accepted President Donald Trump’s offer of federal law enforcement officials to help fight crime in Chicago — but says they must not patrol protests, as federal officials are doing in Portland, Oregon.

President Trump and Mayor Lightfoot spokeWednesday evening, after the administration announced that it would surge federal law enforcement agents to Chicago and other cities suffering from a wave of violent crime in the wake of Black Lives Matter protests. The protests have prompted police to scale back patrols — in some cases at the behest of politicians.

Lightfoot claimed that Trump “realized that what he did in Portland was a grave abuse of his presidential power,” though it was not clear that the president had made any such admission. The Department of Homeland Security has sent agents to protect the federal courthouse in downtown Portland, which has been vandalized and firebombed by black-clad rioters associated with Black Lives Matter protests. Some 200 federal officials are expected to be deployed to Chicago.

Earlier this week, Lightfoot compared federal law enforcement officials to terrorists and urgedcitizens to call 911 if they saw federal officials doing anything that seemed untoward. She seems to have softened her tone — but only somewhat.

White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany told Fox News on Thursday morning that Lightfoot should “admit” that she needs the help. Violent crime in Chicago’s African American community has been a problem for years — one that local residents begged President Barack Obama to do something about, but which he neglected during his two terms.

Lightfoot, according to Newsmax, “has accepted additional FBI, DEA, and ATF agents to come to her city to augment and assist local police efforts to control the violence, but the ‘critical difference’ is that the agents will be managed by ‘the U.S. Attorney here in Chicago who I know and trust.'” Lightfoot is herself a former federal prosecutor.

Black Lives Matter Sues to Stop Trump from Sending Help to Fight Crime in Chicago

The Black Lives Matter movement filed a lawsuit in federal court on Thursday to prevent President Donald Trump from sending 200 federal law enforcement officials to help Mayor Lori Lightfoot fight surging crime in the city.

The lawsuit, in which the local chapter of the Democratic Socialists of America has joined Black Lives Matter’s Chicago branch as a plaintiff, names federal law enforcement officials as defendants in a civil rights claim.

On Wednesday, President Trump announced that he would be sending federal law enforcement officials to Chicago and other cities as part of Operation Legend to fight a surge in violent crime since the recent Black Lives Matter protests.

The president and his administration have noted that the primary victims of that crime wave have been African American. Federal officials are being deployed to shore up the efforts of local law enforcement agencies struggling under the burden.

The Black Lives Matter complaint claims that “The President and his appointees are sending federal agents to the streets of Chicago in order to intimidate and falsely arrest civilians who are exercising their constitutional right to speak and to assemble.”
The complaint further asserts that federal law enforcement personnel have “terrorized the people of Portland, Oregon,” where they have been deployed to protect a federal courthouse from vandalism and firebombing by violent activists.

“Rarely in modern times has a President of the United States trampled on bedrock constitutional protections on this scale or so brazenly usurped states’ police power by directing federal agents to carry out an illegal mission against the people for his own personal political benefit,” the complaint states, adding that they have  been engaged intensively in peaceful protest in Chicago for the past eight weeks,” and plan to continue their “peaceful” demonstrations in the near future.

Much of the complaint consists of claims of brutality against demonstrators by the Chicago Police Department. It also accuses Trump of using a “secret police force,” adding: “President Donald Trump has long fancied himself a strongman leader better suited for a dictatorship than a democracy.”

On Monday, the department released surveillance video that showed Black Lives Matter demonstrators smuggling weapons and projectiles into Grant Park during a demonstration last weekend against a statue of Christopher Columbus. While “peaceful” protesters shielded militant activists from view, they hid behind protest banners and donned black clothing. They also distributed frozen water bottles to throw at police, and sharpened PVC pipes into spears.

Mayor Lightfoot accepted the president’s offer of help on Wednesday evening on the express condition that federal officials not be involved in patrolling local protests — which have devolved into riots that are drawing local police away from regular patrols.

Nevertheless, federal law enforcement officials are being deployed to help the city fight a surging wave of violent crime — not to respond to riots, which — unlike in Portland — are not currently targeting federal property in the city.

Black Lives Matter is unhappy about that, asserting in its complaint: “The assent of Chicago’s Mayor to the surge of federal forces means that when the President sends federal agents to Chicago, as he did to Portland, the CPD and the City will be unable and unwilling to protect protestors from unlawful use of excessive force and arrests without probable cause.”

The group says it will return to Grant Park this weekend.

This actually surpised me. I wonder how the phone call went between her Donny. 

I fucking hate how they keep using the word peaceful when there are legit gun fire fights, buildings burning to the ground, and kids getting shot. Lying pieces of human garbage.

The ironing

Why the fuck does the President care what a mayor says or thinks? If you want to send in federal agents, send them in. Leaders lead. They don't ask a city civil servant for their opinion first.

Great, BLM and Democratic Socialist unite. I have already offered some of my black friends who claim to agree with DS that I will pay for them to attend the next DS National Convention, as long as I can accompany them. I encourage others to sponsor other black friends/ acquaintances who want to attend.

I can't wait to see how they respond to being hushed b/c of sensory issues by some dudes in dresses and other assorted white freaks. Hilarity guaranteed to ensue.



The mob has marched to Beetlejuice's house.  They aren't happy about her decision.

Haha!  I love that video.  THAT’S what normal people are up against.  Love it.

Soul Gravy - Why the fuck does the President care what a mayor says or thinks? If you want to send in federal agents, send them in. Leaders lead. They don't ask a city civil servant for their opinion first.

I think he was (and is) prepared to do that, but they didn't want him. He waited till they asked.


 


If it was me? At this point, protests over. Chicago off the streets by 9p, full martial law. I'm a hothead though. He needs to win term 2.

I would prefer that the federal government stay the fuck out of it and let the Democrats rot in the pile of shit they created all on their own.

Bailing them out will not lead to them changing their ways.
