In response to the surprise and shocking election of Donald Trump to the presidency, with his promise to reverse the unconstitutional immigration edicts of Barack Obama, Rahm Emanuel, the mayor of Chicago, said two days ago that “Chicago will always be a sanctuary city” (in other words while he’s mayor of Chicago, he will always defy the laws of the United States) and that “you are always welcome in this city” (one can only guess that he is expressing a welcome to illegal aliens and other law-breakers, and is not welcoming legal American citizens to Chicago).
But the string of “you-ares” in his speech that got my attention was “you are safe in Chicago, you are secure in Chicago and you are supported in Chicago”. What Mr. Emanuel forgot to add to his sibilant list is that, too often in Rahm Emanuel’s Chicago, you are also dead and buried in his fair city, due to the sky-rocketing murder rate there. One could also add that you are too often also unemployed in the liberal paradise of Chicago, especially if you are Hispanic or a-resident-while-black, but one hates to kick a man when he’s down.
Mr. Emanuel is famous for his self-serving statement to “never let a crisis go to waste”, the line that gave Barack Obama the authority to plunge America to a $20 trillion national debt and open our borders to millions of illegal aliens, and he should take this opportunity, and this crisis of killing in his city, to correct the things that have gone so very wrong there and make them right. He’s wasting the chance to join Donald Trump in Making America Great Again.
