Chicago police, feds team up on new effort to curb violence


" to intervene if Chicago was unable to curb its gun violence, it was unclear what he meant".

"This is a man who said his first duty is the safety and security of all Americans".

The Trump administration has sent federal help to Chicago to help it fight street violence and drug trafficking. "He is here to help people". There have been 320 murders, down from 322 over the same period previous year. This was an increase of nearly 60 percent and was more than the number of murders in New York City and Los Angeles, combined. "Last year, more than 4,300 Chicagoans were shot, and more than 700 were killed-the deadliest year in two decades".

In 2013, the then-businessman and TV personality labelled the Midwestern city a "shooting disaster" and called for a non-optional "stop and frisk" policing system to be implemented. The unit is also meant to team up front-line law enforcement officers with state and federal prosecutors.

The House also voted, 257-167, in favor of legislation increasing penalties for those who re-enter the USA after being deported. A bill known as " Kate's Law " would impose harsher prison sentences on deportees who re-enter the United States.

Trump's tweet comes after authorities confirmed to The Chicago-Sun Times reported that Trump had sent twenty agents from U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) to the city.

The new set of agents will work with counterparts from the Chicago Police Department and Illinois State Police on a strike force to solve shootings and arrest gun traffickers, according to the Sun-Times. The group became operational on June 1, Sessions said. The A.T.F. and other federal law enforcement agencies already have large field offices in Chicago, and have frequently partnered with the local police on investigations.

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.

"There are multiple roads that allow you to make sure you make the changes and reform", he said. Mayor Rahm Emanuel's office acknowledged that an additional 20 ATF agents have been sent to Chicago. 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".
