Chicago PD, ATF team up to stop spread of illegal guns

Chicago PD, ATF team up to stop spread of illegal guns

The President tweeted Friday morning saying, "Crime and killings in Chicago have reached such epidemic proportions that I am sending in Federal help".

Sessions also said Chicago should stop being a sanctuary city, adding "it is critical, critical for the people of Chicago. that we begin to. deport violent criminals who've been convicted". The new agents will join the roughly 35 to 40 ATF agents who are already there as part of an initiative formulated in November, when former President Barack Obama was still in office.

President Donald Trump tweeted Friday that Chicago crime is at "epidemic proportions".

The idea of a new strike force was reportedly born last November, and in March, a police official met with Attorney General Jeff Sessions in Washington, D.C.to discuss how to proceed.

The agents are collaborating with the Chicago Police Department and the Illinois State Police on a strike force that will work to track down gun traffickers and solve shootings in the city with the help of ballistics technology. Earlier in January, he posted, "If Mayor can't do it he must ask for Federal help!"

Breitbart News reported that Chicago had almost 4,400 shootings and almost 800 homicides in 2016.

The president has regularly singled out Chicago's violent crime problem and in January decried the high crime rate in the third-most populous USA city as "carnage".

"The police have been demoralized in many ways", he said. But as the police department released figures that show the number of homicides, shooting incidents and shooting victims has dropped, Collins said "the progress CPD has made this year has happened without any of the new resources from the federal government we requested".

French see no one to counter Macron, set to sweep parliament
Macron's predecessors Francois Hollande in 2012, Nicolas Sarkozy in 2007 and Jacques Chirac in 2002 all won outright majorities. Socialist Party leader Jean-Christophe Cambadelis warned that Macron's party could end up "almost without any real opposition".

"Murders are way, way too high", he said.

According to Reuters, there were more than 760 murders in 2016 in Chicago.

The Trump administration has been criticized for calling Chicago a "war zone" and "totally out of control" despite not laying out a long-term vision for America's cities.
