WGN: Many becoming impatient with Mayor Johnson's approach of getting to root of crime in Chicago


[VIDEO] Well, do you think Brandon Johnson in addition to wanting to hire more police detectives could instead hire more police officers? More people on a beat? Just as it seems the city council has, have you grown impatient with Mayor Johnson's "mulit-tiered" approach to the crime issue?

CapFax: Pritzker says he’s worried about future of Ford’s Chicago plant because of the coming end of internal combustion vehicles

 One day that Ford plant that has been at 130th & Torrence forever, well what's the future once electric vehicles become the norm instead of these internal combustion engines or gas powered vehicles?

The Governor of Illinois discusses this on a segment of Mike Flannery's Fired Up on FOX 32. Rich Miller has a brief transcript of this discussion.

From this same segment Pritzker is talking about the police situation in Chicago [VIDEO]

Capitol Fax: Crowds ease at Mexican border, but will that lead to fewer asylum-seekers in Chicago?

 Many of us are concerned about the illegal immigrants who have been bused from such places as Texas or Florida to Chicago which is considered a "sanctuary city". This may be old news to some of you, I've heard that a lot of these immigrants are being housed in some of our closed schools, those that were closed over a decade ago.

It's been in the news that many of these illegals immigrants are sheltering in many of our district police facilities also. Just look for any local news story about them on WGN, WLS, or WBBM.

Then I see that that the number of immigrants have begun to slow at the Southern US border, does this mean less busing into Chicago? Check out today's post from CapFax
