Chicago to open its arms to felons from abroad there illegally

It's not enough that Chicago is a sanctuary city, where illegal aliens* can run free without fear of deportation.

Now, thanks to an ordinance moving through the Chicago City Council, so-called loop-holes will be closed, in effect allowing dangerous criminals from being deported from the city's neighborhoods.

On Trump’s Last Day In Office, Chicago Aldermen Move To Strengthen Sanctuary City Ordinance

Chicago's sanctuary city law has been in place since 2006, but the changes would eliminate exceptions allowing Chicago Police to assist immigration agents.

So, if passed, illegal aliens safe from deportation in Chicago are those:

  • Having an outstanding criminal warrant;
  • Having a felony conviction
  • Is facing a felony charge
  • Is a known gang member.

The ordinance, co-sponsored by Mayor Lori Lightfoot and Ald. Carlos Ramirez-Rosa (35th) scrubs the current ordinance of the word “citizen” so as not to confuse, I suppose, citizens who can't be deported from criminals who should be.

Ain't it grand that Chicago will preserve the rights of criminals to infect the city? Anyone else for moving out?

*Illegal aliens is a more accurate description than the more less precise and euphemistic undocumented immigrants.

  • Our local corruptocrats proving yet again that they care about criminal's safety MUCH more than citizen's if it will buy them political points or allow them to virtue signal - they won't cross a street to piss on a citizen if he/she was on fire, but they'll bend over backwards to help criminals and gangbangers

    Chicagoans, you are voting for the decline and eventual destruction of your home

  • In reply to Archangel999:

    My first thought is that this is one of those conditions where people having rights gets inconvenient. Our entire government is based on the fact that people have rights and those rights don't come from the government and the government can't interfere with them. So, citizenship doesn't have anything to do with it. I know that's inconvenient for many people. Perhaps you'd be more comfortable with the government they have in China, where things like human rights aren't that important.

    Unless you'd like to explain why you think these principles of natural law don't really apply and everything we thought about our own government isn't true. Rights are really just things that the government lets people we are happy with get to exercise? Maybe?
