Senate Democratic Whip Dick Durbin (D.-Ill.) is urging President Donald Trump to help reduce shootings and homicides in Chicago by increasing federal investment in housing, economic development, job training, education, public health and community policing.
As you prepare your Fiscal Year 2020 Budget Request, I urge you to use this budget framework as an opportunity to support efforts to help reduce gun violence in Chicago, rather than scapegoating the citys challenges to promote ideological political agendas, Durbin told Trump in a letter sent on Dec. 13.
I urge you to prioritize federal support and resources that will help Chicago reduce violence by expanding economic opportunities and addressing health and education disparities in the hardest-hit communities, Durbin said.
The number of shootings and homicides that Chicago continues to experience is tragic and unacceptable, Durbin told Trump. [ ]
Reducing violence in Chicago requires a comprehensive approach involving partnerships with local education and health officials, law enforcement, community stakeholders, and the federal government. Through sustained and targeted investment of federal funding in underserved communities, the federal government can play an integral role in addressing the economic and societal issues that contribute to violence.

Pushing the Obama solution of federalizing city policing. Throwing endless money at a problem caused by left-wing policies.
The aptly named Dick Durbin.
Yeah, Durbin - like that is going to change peoples’ hearts that are filled with hatred. But then most of them are Demonrats, so murders are just part of the package. Pathetic. And you are their “leader.”
Maybe Chicago should vote for a Republican. The Democrats (and their spending) haven’t helped.
Where’s the wall money Dick?
Stop going to Federal Government for all your demands..you who voted NO on SC Jurist, You who voted NO for a Wall to protect all Americans...
To you Dick Durbin I say...go screw your self, pink pantie supporter...and kiss our AMERICAN A$$’ES...YOU ARE DISGUSTING...
Yeah. Pay for the wall and stop the drug trade, MS13 thugs, terrorists.
That will reduce drug crimes and shootings in big markets like Chicago.
Spending fixes everything.
Look at how much we’ve spent already. We have no more problems!
Durbin the Anti Trump ask for increased spending on police state Chicago. Chicago the city that’s been under Democratic Crime syndicate for decades. TDurbin the man that fights the wall spending. Durbin should just resign.
Make a deal. Use your states money for the programs you are looking for. If you can verifiably reduce gun violence by 50% we’ll reimburse you 1/2.
We should build a wall around Chicago, let the animals kill each other.
Might also help to have all the criminals get permits for their weapons .... when they come down to the police station to get their permit, simply arrest them.
Voters should ask the Dick how increased spending will curb gang violence when Chicago just turns them loose. The ‘Rats seem to love turmoil because it justifies their restrictive laws on everyone.
Just pass a law making it illegal, for criminals or those even thinking about it, to own, purchase, possess or fire a forearm in preparation, committing a crime, or leaving the premises, and or vehicle, whereon they committed , or was used in a crime.
You know your gun laws work. LOL
Durban isn’t called “DICK” for nothing.
Dick needs to do a courtesy flush of himself. He knows a lot about flushing things.
housing, economic development, job training, education, public health and community policing.
those are functions of city, county and state govts, so hop to it, Durbin
Little Dick Durbin
Tightened his turban
Opened his mouth to bray:
If Feds spend some billions
On Democrat minions
Well frighten gang bangers away
declare it a lawless territory with no acting government
