Chicagoland criminals expanding enterprises by training migrants for suburban crime sprees: expert
'And the police officers are saying, "Just forget it. Why bother? Why bother even making the arrest?"' retired chief says
Criminal enterprises in the Chicago area are benefiting from the migrant crisis as they recruit illegal immigrants to carry out crimes with little legal repercussions, a former Illinois police chief says.
"The frustration with this migrant crime is really, I think, going to boil over," retired Riverside Police Chief Tom Weitzel told Fox News Digital in a Zoom interview Monday. "You can pull up any article and see that some of these migrants are being arrested three and four and five times, over and over again, and released to commit more crime. … It's not an exaggeration to say that it's a revolving door. And the police officers are saying, ‘Just forget it. Why bother? Why bother even making the arrest?’"
Chicago and its surrounding areas have been the target of repeated migrant crimes, including quiet suburban malls seeing groups of people who illegally entered the U.S. ripping off department stores such as Macy’s.
Since August 2022, Chicago has seen an estimated 35,000 migrants flood the city after they illegally crossed the southern border in Texas, which bussed or flew them north.
Weitzel served as police chief of Riverside, a suburban village in Cook County located about five miles outside Chicago, from 2008 to 2021, when he retired. He served in law enforcement for 37 years, which included him being ambushed and shot in the line of duty in 1987 by Chicago criminals.
The former police chief said that before the migrant crisis exploded in northern cities, Chicago was already dealing with 2020’s crime wave that seeped into suburban towns.
"Individuals from the city, gang members, and even gang enterprises, would send individuals out to the suburbs to commit crimes at the suburban malls or residential areas for burglaries. And they would always flee back east to Chicago. That was a pattern that happened every single week," Weitzel said of crime issues pre-migrant crisis.
Now, the pool of criminals has seemingly expanded as some migrants land in the city and link up with criminals, gangs and criminal businesses that show them the ropes on how and where to commit crime, Weitzel said.
Migrants are dropped off at landing zones and "immediately targeted by these organizations to go out and commit crime," Weitzel said.
"Because would a migrant know where Oak Brook, Illinois, is, which has a very large, high-end shopping mall? Or Lombard, Illinois, or North Riverside, Illinois, which are all communities that have malls. They have no idea those communities even exist. They would have no idea how to get there, where they're located from the city of Chicago transportation. And these criminal enterprises are providing that for these migrants," he said. --->READ MORE HERE
Sanctuary City Chicago Sees 11,000% Increase in Arrests of Venezuelans Since Border Crisis Began:
A common argument by the open-borders lobby is that there is no connection between illegal immigrants and crime. Those people first miss the fundamental fact that illegal immigrants broke American immigration law when they came into the country illegally. It also ignores the fact that any crime committed by an illegal alien is one that could have been avoided if our immigration laws were being enforced.
In the sanctuary city of Chicago, more than 21,000 primarily Venezuelan migrants have arrived since the summer of 2022. The 21,000 consists of those who have crossed the border illegally and those whom the Biden administration has let into the interior of the United States, largely through their rampant and illegal abuse of parole authority.
The Venezuelan migrants in Chicago have shattered the narrative pushed by the open-borders lobby that there is no connection between the border crisis and crime. According to police data obtained by CWBChicago, there were just six arrests of Venezuelan-born people in 2021 and 26 in 2022. Now, as of November 12 this year, Chicago PD has arrested 686 Venezuelans, representing an 11,333% increase over 2021.
2023’s numbers are only through November 12, leaving the second half of November and the entire month of December to add to the 686 arrests.
Here is a sampling of just some of the crimes the Venezuelan migrants are accused of committing:
  • Two migrants got into an argument outside a city shelter, resulting in one allegedly shooting the other. 
  • Police say one migrant robbed a citizen of a bike and then was released from custody the next day to await trial. The migrant was a resident of a migrant shelter. 
  • A Chicago police station serving as a migrant shelter had one migrant allegedly stab another over the cleanliness of the bathroom.
