So now the Feds are telling us lies

So apparently the Justice Department is now in the business of telling big American cities how horrible they are.

Today, the Department of Justice sent the attached letters to nine jurisdictions which were identified in a May 2016 report by the Department of Justice’s Inspector General as having laws that potentially violate 8 U.S.C. § 1373.

Additionally, many of these jurisdictions are also crumbling under the weight of illegal immigration and violent crime. The number of murders in Chicago has skyrocketed, rising more than 50 percent from the 2015 levels. New York City continues to see gang murder after gang murder, the predictable consequence of the city’s “soft on crime” stance.

That sounds more like Trump on Twitter than like a normal DOJ.

Maggie Haberman of the Times tweeted a statement by the New York Police Commissioner:

The Commissioner tweeted 23 minutes ago:

Crime is down, murders are down, but the DOJ sees fit to put out a press release saying they’re up, and implying that it’s because IMMIGRANTS.

That’s both ugly and alarming.
