WATCH: Mayor Lightfoot Vows “I will not allow troops in Chicago, and I will do everything in my power to stop you”

Appearing on MSNBC, Chicago Mayor Lightfoot vowed to do anything in her power to stop Federal troops from coming to her city.

DHS has already sent federal troops to Portland, to the dismay of their state’s leadership and Trump has hinted that Chicago could be among the cities that are next. A report from the Chicago Tribune suggests around 150 federal law enforcement officers may be sent to Chicago soon.

Sharing a clip of her appearance, Lightfoot wrote “Mr. President or not—I don’t care one bit what your name is. I will not allow troops in Chicago, and I will do everything in my power to stop you.”

Per Gregory Pratt, Chicago Tribune:

BREAKING: Trump’s Homeland Security Department is making plans to deploy about 150 agents in Chicago this week, with the scope of their duty unknown.

Friday, acting Secretary of DHS Chad Wolf confirmed DHS presence in Portland and wrote:

“I offered @DHSgov support to help locally address the situation that’s going on in Portland, and their only response was: please pack up and go home. That’s just not going to happen on my watch.”

TheHill reports the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is planning to send 150 federal agents to Chicago this week, The Chicago Tribune reported Monday.

The Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) agents are set to assist other federal law enforcement and Chicago police in crime-fighting efforts, the Tribune reported citing unnamed sources.

A specific plan on what the agents will be doing has not been made public, according to the Tribune. One city official told the newspaper that the city was aware of the plan but not any specifics.

The move would come as Democratic leaders have condemned the Trump administration for sending federal officials to Portland, Ore., where there have been reports of people being picked up by agents in unmarked vans.

Acting Deputy Homeland Security Secretary Ken Cuccinelli on Monday said the efforts in Portland could be extended to other cities if there are spikes in violent protests.
