Operation LeGend: Trump Sending Fed Agents to Chicago, Albuquerque, Already In Kansas City

President Trump says he will send federal law enforcement agents to Chicago, IL and Albuquerque, NM in a federal effort to fight the violent crime by expanding "Operation LeGend." This comes after weeks of Trump's threats do to this. Both cities are controlled by Democrats.

This from KMBC News 9 in Kansas City, MO (emphasis added):
President Donald Trump announced Wednesday an expansion of a federal law enforcement operation currently underway in Kansas City to the cities of Chicago, Illinois, and Albuquerque, New Mexico.
The operation – called Operation LeGend for 4-year-old LeGend Taliferro, who was killed when shots were fired into his Kansas City home as he slept – involves agents from the Federal Bureau of Investigation, U.S. Marshals Service, Drug Enforcement Administration and Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.
KMBC continued:
Authorities say that more than 225 federal law enforcement personnel have arrived in Kansas City to assist in curbing the violent crime that claimed [LeGend] Taliferro’s life.
Kansas City Mayor Quinton Lucas welcomed federal help but also said it doesn’t diminish the role of the Kansas City Police Department.
"This operation is not tanks in the streets,” Lucas said. “This operation is not a substitute patrol force.”
Breitbart quotes a report from McClatchy (at, the title of which is "Trump expanding Justice Department’s Operation Legend to Chicago, Albuquerque."
Watch remarks by Pres. Trump and A.G. Barr at this press conference today:

Katie Bo Williams, Senior National Aecurity Correspondent for Defense One, tweeted this Wednesday afternoon:
Chicago's Mayor Lori Lightfoot is not happy about what she sees as interference. Unlike Kansas City Mayor Lucas, she seems to see federal help as a personal affront and let it be known in this tweet yesterday:

Lightfoot seems unaware that every day in Chicago people actually are "terrorized," not by "Trump's troops" but by fellow Chicago residents. She seems more interested in virtue signaling her dislike of President Trump than in getting help for her fellow Chicago citizens.

On July 18, Chicago Fraternal Order of Police President John Catanzara Jr. sent a letter to President Trump, asking for the federal government's help to fight the city's rampant violence. (Image, left)

In his letter, Catanzara wrote that, "Mayor Lightfoot has proved to be a complete failure who is either unwilling or unable to maintain law and order here."

Meanwhile, Albuquergue mayor Tim Keller is being a faithful #Resistor, sounding a lot like Chicago Mayor Lightfoot's parrot.
