Will Chicago stop "tearing families apart" by continuing to put arrested/tried/convicted criminals that have "da-baby-mommas" in jail? Will they separate these perps from their dozens and dozens of offspring? Or will they keep families together by putting the "babies in cages" with them? Odd that this policy is unacceptable when the feds do it but Chicago does it far more often every day.

Hopefully ICE already has the database names. They wouldn't have been planning to just get them a few days before. I guess this mayor is too dumb to realize that.

My Mother, full of wisdom while dying from cancer (which she withheld from her children) told me in one of our last discussions, "you are not rewarded here, but will receive a (righteous) judgment "after here". All these weak and corrupt 'leaders' will get theirs. Sadly, we cannot watch it now when it seems so deserved, but THE JUDGEMENT is inescapable...and the ABYSS can never be overcome between the RIGHTEOUS and the EVIL WICKED...'leaders' of this day. And there are SO MANY that will receive punishment.

I think this grandstanding is mostly for local consumption. Unless Chicago has opted out somehow, The National Crime Information Center (NCIC) gathers all state and local data. It's available to all law enforcement.

The Federal response should be to cut off the City of Chicago from DOJ and DHS controlled Federal law enforcement data bases as turn about is fair play in politics. Then watch the liberal and leftist Democrats heads blow off as they run to manipulate the system by conspiring to find an activist liberal Democrat Obama or Clinton judge to issue a permanent injunction against the Federal Government.

I've hit outrage overload. I don't care about these people and I say let them sink in their own swill. They won't change and we can't make them, so let them go their own way. Someday, the DOJ, at the request of the president, will send in the U.S. Marshals to clean up the mess. If it isn't Chicago, it will be San Francisco, Los Angeles or more than likely Portland, OR. The idiots that have voted in these miscreant mayors deserve what they get, so let them go their merry way. Sooner or later, they will wake up to the reality that they are affected first hand by this crap, and will lose "compassion" for the unwashed who are here illegally, and the majority isn't going to pay for their upkeep any longer. I just hope it's sooner than later.

They are only going after those who've been processed already, and have either been denied their asylum claim, and/or, not appeared before the court as so ordered for their hearing. So, if Democrats want to help, they should be directing those who've come here in the last few years to make sure they show up for their hearing. I believe it's the responsibility of those who were apprehended, and then released to appear, or advise they've moved, so another court can take up their hearing. Not the government's responsibility to find them.

Curious that Lightfoot wants to protect the violent criminals in her city from deportation. Obviously, being a violent criminal is something that she finds attractive in her city's residents. Maybe that is why their violence statlstics are so horrifying - the city "leaders" encourage the violence.

Is Madam Mayor aware that any inmate, state or federal can be found wheresoever housed in several ways. The state (yes, even Illinois) has a record of every inmate even housed in any state institution. The Bureau of Federal Prisons has a website (bop.gov) which has an electronic record going back to 1982. The records previous to that year are more than likely archived into a retrieval medium. Happy hunting. For sure, some determined official can block a name or two from discovery. I seriously doubt if all names, even all names that sound ''foreign'' can escape notice. Poor mayor probably believes what she utters.

Absolutely living proof of a Communist mayor. I'm sure that President Trumps staff have already checked into the financial support that the government is giving Chicago to maintain and support those information systems. Maybe we can stop all access to government systems from Chicago.

Illinois will become less reliant on coal-fired power plants by the end of the year. Under an arrangement with the state, Vistra Energy soon will shut down 40 percent of its eight-facility fleet in central and southern Illinois. Phil Gonet, president of the Illinois Coal Association, said that could cause problems. “We think it’s very dangerous to embark on a policy to replace baseload power, which operates all the time and is available all the time, with unreliable energy from renewables,” Gonet said.

Bank of America will end its association with companies that provide prisoner and immigrant detention services at both the state and federal levels. The move comes amid growing public concern about the nation’s border policies. A spokesperson said Wednesday that Bank of America has discussed the issue with its clients that provide those services. While the bank appreciates “steps they have taken to properly execute their contractual and humanitarian responsibilities,” it ultimately decided to “exit the relationships.” “Lacking further legal and policy clarity, and in recognition of the concerns of our employees and stakeholders in the communities we serve, it is our intention to exit these relationships,” the spokesperson said.

A British judge ordered Friday that an abortion be performed on a mentally disabled woman who is 22 weeks pregnant, despite objections from the woman and her mother. Justice Nathalie Lieven admits in the ruling of the “heartbreaking” case that it’s an “immense intrusion” to order the abortion against the woman’s will, but argued that it’s in the best interest of the woman.“I am acutely conscious of the fact that for the State to order a woman to have a termination where it appears that she doesn't want it is an immense intrusion,” the justice said. “I have to operate in [her] best interests, not on society's views of termination."

The Illinois Senate has approved a sweeping abortion rights bill. The 34 – 20 vote comes amid a time when several other states have passed laws essentially banning the practice. The bill establishes a woman’s “fundamental right” to an abortion… and states that “a fertilized egg, embryo or fetus does not have independent rights.” It also repeals the Illinois abortion law of 1975, eliminating spousal consent, waiting periods, criminal penalties for abortion providers and restrictions on abortion facilities. The bill now heads to Governor Pritzker. He campaigned on a promise to make Illinois the most progressive state in the country for reproductive rights.

In January 1942, 11 Naval nurses and one Filipino nurse were taken prisoner by the Japanese. They spent nearly three years as POW’s in concentration camps where they continued to nurse the sick and injured. They were never formally recognized by the U.S. government as heroes. But to the men they cared for, their service will never be forgotten. The nurses became to be known as the 12 Anchors. Their selfless service never stopped. All of the nurses received the Bronze Star and a Prisoner of War medal. WGN’s Marcella Raymond has their story.

Long before Jeffrey Epstein pleaded guilty to prostitution charges in Florida more than a decade ago, his fellow Palm Beach resident and hedge-fund manager Douglas Kass was intrigued by the local gossip about his neighbor. “I’m hearing about the parties, hearing about a guy who’s throwing money around,” says Kass, president of Seabreeze Partners Management. While stories about young girls swarming Epstein’s waterfront mansion and the sex parties he hosted for the rich and powerful were the talk of the town, Kass was more focused on how this obscure person, rumored to be managing billions of dollars, had become so wealthy without much of a track record.
