Chicago is one step away from insolvency and has been for a while. Its been propped up with quick fixes for a while but destined to fail sooner or later. TPTB know it. This is a last ditch effort at securing the confidence of minorities. If Trump withholds federal aid from Chicago the city will go under in a heartbeat. This way they can blame it on Trump, even though it was clearly decades of democrat rule that ruined this once great city.


What they don't count on is Trump going directly to the people to tell them why Chicago is in crap shape/.

Good thread, seasonal, and I used to have a dog close
to this fight. Not anymore, F&S!
Rahm seems to be at loggerheads with Gov Rauner... who
was pushing a "Fix Illinois" platform for the GOP.

On the other hand, I stumped for Rahm when he first ran for
mayor... because I wanted everybody to know what they would
get voting for him. Most did it anyway. It's the water I'm tellin'
ya.. after all it took the Cubs 108 years to win the World Series.

For the 'undocumented workers' remember Illinois is also
granting them driver's licenses so they can get to the jobs they
took away from law abiding wierdos like me who used to pay
income taxes. Let the spice and funny money flow until every-
body finds out Cloward-Piven sucks for a business model.

Silly those are the jobs Americans won't do. Right?

By the way Rahm E. looks like a guy you don't want to mess with.

It was a job I was already doing for a year and a half.. but I
was a high risk (OLD) employee and missed the Obamacare
cut.
And yeah.. Rahm's dad was one of the three guys that
founded the IDF. There's more to him than that, but we're
not going there tonight.
I'd still, even from some distance now-- greatly enjoy watching
the enabling (fed funding) suddenly dry up for Chicago. It
could turn into Detroit V.2.0 in a decade or even less.

It's actually not too bad an idea to incarcerated the criminals.
Free the nonviolent American offenders and replace them with criminal Mexicans.
Americans freed, prison complex doesn't lose money. Probably gains a profit, too.

Illegal Immigration Costs U.S. $113 Billion a Year, Study Finds
By Ed Barnes Published July 06, 2010 FoxNews.com

The cost of harboring illegal immigrants in the United States is a staggering $113 billion a year -- an average of $1,117 for every “native-headed” household in America -- according to a study conducted by the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR).

The study, a copy of which was provided to FoxNews.com, “is the first and most detailed look at the costs of illegal immigration ever done,” says Bob Dane, director of communications at FAIR, a conservative organization that seeks to end almost all immigration to the U.S.

FAIR's opponents in the bitter immigration debate describe the organization as "extremist," though it is regularly called upon to testify before Congress.

Groups that support immigration reform immediately attacked FAIR's report and pointed out that it is the polar opposite of the Perryman Report, a 2008 study that found illegal immigration was actually a boon to the American economy. It estimated that illegal immigrants add $245 billion in Gross Domestic Product to the economy and account for 2.8 million jobs.

The FAIR report comes as President Obama moves immigration reform to the top of his agenda, and it is likely to be a rallying point for those who oppose the president. At a speech Thursday at American University in Washington, D.C., Obama argued that the entire immigration system is broken and needs sweeping reforms. Among the changes he said are needed is "a path for [farm] workers to earn legal status," which the president's critics called an opening for a new amnesty program.

FAIR's report argues that there are two choices in the immigration debate: “One choice is pursuing a strategy that discourages future illegal migration and increasingly diminishes the current illegal alien population through denial of job opportunities and deportations. The other choice,” it says, “would repeat the unfortunate decision made in 1986 to adopt an amnesty that invited continued illegal migration.”

The report states that an amnesty program wouldn’t appreciably increase tax revenue and would cost massive amounts in Social Security and public assistance expenses. An amnesty “would therefore be an accentuation of the already enormous fiscal burden,” the report concludes.

The single largest cost to the government of illegal immigration, according to the report, is an estimated $52 billion spent on schooling the children of illegals. “Nearly all those costs are absorbed by state and local governments,’ the report states.

Moreover, the study’s breakdown of costs on a state-by-state basis shows that in states with the largest number of illegals, the costs of illegal immigration are often greater than current, crippling budget deficits. In Texas, for example, the additional cost of immigration, $16.4 billion, is equal to the state’s current budget deficit; in California the additional cost of illegal immigration, $21.8 billion, is $8 billion more than the state’s current budget deficit of $13.8 billion; and in New York, the $6.8 billion deficit is roughly two-thirds the $9.5 billion yearly cost of its illegal population, according to Jack Martin, the researcher who completed the study.

“The most important finding of the study is the enormous cost to state and local governments due to lack of enforcement of our immigration laws,” Martin wrote.

The report found that the federal government paid $28.6 billion in illegal related costs, and state and local governments paid $84.2 billion on an estimated 13 million undocumented residents. In his speech, Obama estimated that there are 11 million.

But FAIR's critics said the report wrongly included American-born children of undocumented workers in its study.

“The single biggest 'expense' it attributes to unauthorized immigrants is the education of their children, yet most of these children are native-born, U.S. citizens who will grow up to be taxpaying adults," said Walter Ewing, a senior researcher at the American Immigration Council. "It is disingenuous to count the cost of investing in the education of these children, so that they will earn higher incomes and pay more in taxes when they are adults, as if it were nothing more than a cost incurred by their parents."

He added that “the report fails to account for the purchasing power of unauthorized consumers, which supports U.S. businesses and U.S. jobs” and that it “ignores the value added to the U.S. economy by unauthorized workers, particularly in the service sector.”

Martin said FAIR expected that criticism, but that because the children are a direct result of illegal immigration, their inclusion was both fair and reasonable.
