Chicago isn’t the only city that saw an increase in homicides last year.
2016 was the deadliest year in history for my little city of Syracuse.
This comes on the heels of 2015 which was the deadliest year in Syracuse’s history until 2016 came along.
Now, granted, compared to Chicago, Syracuse is penny ante. We had twenty-six homicides last year.
So, to be fair, we’re more Chicago Lite.
But if our mayor — the wretched Stephanie Miner – gets her way, 2017 will leave both 2015 and 2016 in the dust.
Yesterday, the minor mayor had her “State of the City” address.
And from her prattling bit of nonsense, apparently having only 26 homicides isn’t good enough for Steph.
Not when she’s doing her level best to make Syracuse Chicago Lite.
So what better way to become Chicago Lite than to make Syracuse a Sanctuary City?
The minor mayor claims that the best way to reaffirm Syracuse’s commitment to being “tolerant, welcoming, and inclusive” is by not cooperating with Federal immigration officials.
Because, of course, to Stephanie way of thinking, the only “immigrants” are illegal aliens.
The irony is Stephanie also claimed she wants to enact tougher crime-fighting measures.
Here’s an idea, Steph, you dumbass: If you want to reduce crime, enforce immigration laws.
Because with illegal aliens comes an increase in gangs, drugs and crime.
Just look at Chicago.
Honestly. I really despise this woman.
In her tenure as mayor, Syracuse has seen an astronomical increase in poverty – often centered in areas of the city where illegals and supposed “refugees” are living.
What a coinkidink.
There is a price for Stephanie’s desire to be “inclusive and welcoming.”
It’s driving down the standard of living in the city she is supposed to lead.
It is increasing poverty.
And it is increasing crime.
This is Stephanie Miner’s real “legacy.”
And on the heels of all this, she’s decided to defy immigration laws and further make this city Chicago Lite.
Have I mentioned I despise this woman?
Fortunately, the Minor Mayor is entering her final year.
Unfortunately, Syracuse is Chicago Lite in another way.
We have our own Democrat Machine that all but guarantees the next mayor will be yet another Big Government, incompetent Liberal Democrat who will continue to run this city into the ground.
