Bill Cameron sits down with Mayor Emanuel, who says he’s going to sue the Trump Justice Dept on Monday over its new Sanctuary City rules. New rules just out prevent Sanctuary Cities like Chicago to get certain law enforcement grants and so the mayor says Chicago will file suit to kill the rules and get the millions in question. Also interesting in this interview, Rahm says he’s no longer Bruce Rauner’s friend even as Rauner said this week he still considers the two of them to be friends at city hall.
In this week’s round table discussion, Bill Cameron is joined by Ray Long of the Chicago Tribune, Greg Hinz of Crain’s, and Lynn Sweet of the Chicago Sun Times. Topics include Bill Cameron’s conversation with Mayor Emanuel. The round table shares their thoughts on the subject. They also discuss the Cook County “Pop Tax” the continuing issues in North Korea, as well as issues in Springfield.
