In Chicago, run by Democrat Mayor Brandon Johnson, at least two dozen individuals, including three fatalities, were shot over the weekend.
Reports announced that on West 18th Street, a 36-year-old male was shot in the chest, becoming the first fatality. The man drove to a medical facility, ultimately succumbing to his injuries.
A male was discovered dead on South Leamington Avenue early Sunday as well. No explanations were given on the circumstances of the incident.
In the third incident, two 18-year-olds, a 16-year-old, and a 53-year-old man, were shot down on South Payne Drive at approximately 8:15 p.m. after an altercation. One of the teenagers, aged 18, was shot and later died from his wounds.
According to a media outlet, 372 persons were murdered in Chicago between January 1 and August 13 of 2023.
According to a report, Chicago is a proud sanctuary city, but Mayor Johnson has reportedly been in talks with Cook County authorities and other county officials to organize a plan to remove hundreds, if not thousands, of illegal aliens from the city.
Thousands of border crossers and illegal immigrants would be bused to upstate New York, similar to what New York City Mayor Eric Adams (D) has been doing, frequently without consulting local politicians.
In June, reports showed that teens in Chicago had been out in large groups vandalizing property, stealing from stores, and even attacking residents on the street.
One night, hundreds of troubled youths converged on the Lakeview district, located north of downtown.
Local news reported that a group of aggressive teenagers gathered on the Belmont Red Line of the Chicago “L” and then proceeded to block down traffic around the station as they poured out.
Young people started climbing on cars, shattering windshields and wrecking roofs before spreading out to enter nearby stores.
As the teens started their campaign of terror, one woman phoned the police, only to be informed that the Chicago Police Department (CPD) was unable to intervene.
