Chicagoland Mayor Rahm Emanuel ignores the problem of record numbers of shootings in his city while he focuses on the imminent crisis facing illegal immigrants under a Donald Trump Presidency.

Over the Christmas weekend 41 people were shot in Chicago.

Christmas weekend in Chicago has already become more violent than it was during the entire holiday weekend last year. Eleven people were killed and at least 30 others have been wounded in shootings across the city since Friday evening, according to Chicago Police. Last year, a total of 30 people were shot in Chicago over the holiday weekend, leaving six dead.

Mayor Emanuel is busy protecting Illegal Immigrants from Donald J. Trump. He used $1 million in taxpayer money to set up a defense fund. Perhaps Mayor Emanuel should turn his attention to more pressing needs. Like learning how to prioritize.
