At a panel discussion in Washington, DC, hosted by the African American Mayors’ Association, New York City Mayor Eric Adams complained that his city is being “destroyed” by President Biden’s illegal migrant crisis.
And outgoing Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot said Democrats need to speak the truth about violent crime in their cities, and it does no good for police to arrest criminals when leftist prosecutors and judges keep letting them out to prey on the public again and again. She said if someone works up the courage to identify the person who shot up their neighborhood only to see him back on the street two days later, that tells the public “that the criminal justice system doesn’t care about victims and witnesses.” She said, “I know that there are people in my city that are wreaking havoc every day and need to be off the streets. That’s reality.”
As Nick Arama at Redstate.com notes, anyone hearing this is probably suffering from whiplash now.
