Letter from Brian McCann
TO: Politicians, Press, family, assorted non government organizations(NGO), friends, one or two enemies
FROM; Brian McCann
Most of you have heard the recent news relative to sanctuary cities. In short the executive order is the beginning of the end for these lawless communities with Chicago/Cook County taking the lead. Moreover, most of you will recall I asked CC officials to sit down with our chief adviser to offer expert opinion on how to deal with the problem of alien criminals in Chicago and Cook County. They ignored me. Other sources tell me the new administration can get results by using a carrot and stick approach with these cities and counties. In my view there will not be any major withholding of funds that have been reported. First, General Kelly will approach Emmanuel, Preckwinkle and others and negotiate and use the stick($) if necessary.
One major stick aside from loosing funds is a fine provision of up to 500k if released criminal aliens commit a felony or misdemeanor causing death. Sadly here in Chicago/Cook County there will be significant opposition led by the political class, media, pro immigrant groups and business leaders who live in tony suburbs. One source tells me that members of the CC board plan on introducing a resolution in a few weeks urging Preckwinkle to request increased federal funds to combat the rising murder rate. They should understand that General Kelly will require compliance with federal detainers is imperative
Last, plans are underway for a pro enforcement rally in Chicago in a few weeks. The new administration views Chicago and San Francisco as the worst examples of sanctuary jurisdictions.
I also want to thank many of you for your kind words and support.
