“No mother should ever have to cradle her dead child in her arms simply because politicians refused to do what is necessary to secure their neighborhood and to secure their city,” the President said yesterday.
President Donald Trump now vows to send a “surge” of federal law enforcement officers into cities including Chicago and Albuquerque in a crackdown on the crime and violent protests which has seen hundreds of civilians and police officers alike killed.
The emphasis is on “law and order”, a key component of Trump’s reelection campaign.
“Today, I’m announcing a surge of federal law enforcement into American communities plagued by violent crime,” Trump said at the White House yesterday.
“We’ll work every single day to restore public safety, protect our nation’s children and bring violent perpetrators to justice.”
“My administration will be working to remove dangerous offenders sprung loose by these deadly policies and, frankly, by these deadly politicians,” he said.
“America must be a sanctuary for law-abiding citizens, not criminal aliens. My vision for America’s cities could not be more different from the lawlessness being pushed by the extreme radical left.”
“This bloodshed must end,” he said. “This bloodshed will end.”
Critics say the administration is seeking to shift the focus away from its widely criticised response to the coronavirus pandemic.
However, the lawlessness seems to be taking part in Democrat-run cities in what seems a booster for their campaign hopes to bring Joe Biden in as President whilst shifting all the blame of troubles onto the Republican administration.
Democratic Mayors have said that ‘we do not want them’ in regards to federal officers entering into their states and cities.
The FBI, Drug Enforcement Administration, US Marshals Service and Department of Homeland Security would all send agents to Chicago, Trump added, giving a lengthy description of recent violence in America’s third biggest city and accusing its Democratic leaders of failing residents.
“No mother should ever have to cradle her dead child in her arms simply because politicians refused to do what is necessary to secure their neighborhood and to secure their city,” he said.
The move is an extension of Operation Legend, devised to tackle violent crime in Kansas City, Missouri, and named after four-year-old LeGend Taliferro, who was fatally shot while sleeping in his family home last month.
