Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel’s sanctuary city policies for illegal aliens came home to roost this week, in a brutal attack.
A group of seven gang members — 6 of them illegal aliens — committed a horrific act with a machete at a Chicago train station, sending one man to the hospital with serious injuries.
According to WGN-TV, around 12:30 a.m. Monday morning a 26-year-old man and his 17-year-old brother were waiting for the next train at the Kidzie stop on Chicago’s Brown Line. A group of seven then approached the pair as they sat on a bench minding their own business.
At that point, one of the members of the group asked the two to flash their gang signs, but they refused, telling the group of thugs that they weren’t in a gang. Police said that 18-year-old Mario Elvira then pulled out a machete and struck the older male in the head with it, continuing to violently take swings at him until a train approached and ran the group off.
ABC7 reports that the older victim remains hospitalized in stable condition. The attack caused a gash 6 inches long and 1 ½ inches deep that required over 30 stitches to close.
Police said the seven suspects – Elvira; Jean Salvatierra, 23; Kevin Ramierz, 19; Kevar Preston, 20; and two 15-year-old males and one 15-year-old female – immediately fled the scene. Police were able to apprehend them a short time after the attacks. They are all charged with robbery, aggravated battery and trespassing on the CTA. The three minors also face charges.
Battery and trespassing? Um, HELLO…what about attempted murder?
WGN reports that the Border Patrol had been called in to investigate the immigration status of the assailants – finding that nearly all of them were here illegally — and probably all “Dreamers” eligible for amnesty under Barack Obama’s DACA executive order.
3 of the illegal aliens are suspected of belonging to the brutal MS-13 gang, well-known for using machetes against rivals.
