peters fedagentCHICAGO – President Trump’s Department of Homeland Security is making preparations to send 150 federal agents to Chicago next weekend for unknown duties. In response, State Senator Robert Peters (D-Chicago) released the following statement:

“President Trump needs to keep his secret federal police out of our city. We’ve seen how they have been treating protesters in Portland. We do not want that here. That is not how to deliver justice or offer support to our communities. This is not the solution.

The President continues to fail us when it comes to the pandemic, when it comes to the economic crisis, and when it comes to the crisis of systemic racism. Sending a force of federal agents with no stated objective into communities they are unfamiliar with is not only begging for more failure, but also poses an active danger to people’s lives. You must cancel the plan to send your secret federal police to Chicago.”
