• ‘Law and Order’ President Reacts to Rising Crime Rates Across the Nation

    Surge Summary: As lawlessness intensifies in the streets of America, the Trump Administration is dispatching federal agents to cities like Chicago, Albuquerque and Kansas to restore order.

    President Trump and Attorney General William Barr announced [Wednesday] that they will soon send federal agents to Chicago and Albuquerque, New Mexico, to help local authorities combat rising crime in those cities.

    “Frankly, we have no choice but to get involved,” Trump said at the White House event where he announced the initiative. “Politicians running many of our cities have put interests of criminals above law-abiding citizens.”

    The program is named “Operation Legend” after a four-year-old who was fatally shot while sleeping in a Kansas City apartment last month. Hundreds of federal agents already have been sent to Kansas City to help combat a record increase in violence in that city.

    To give you an idea of how dire things have become in many of America’s cities, even Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot, a vociferous Trump critic, is reluctantly accepting federal help in her city.

    This underscores once again how Trump has made law and order one of the top priorities of his presidency. His critics accuse him of trying to divide America. But he’s doing more to restore law and order in our cities than Obama-Biden did in eight years.
