1. Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot in mask before start of community event
2. SOUNDBITE (English) Mayor Lori Lightfoot, (D) Chicago:
"I have great concerns about that, particularly given the track record in the city of Portland. I spent a lot of time yesterday talking with the mayor of Portland to get a sense of what's happened there. We don't need federal agents without any insignia taking people off the streets and holding them, I think, unlawfully. That's not what we need."
3. SOUNDBITE (English) Mayor Lori Lightfoot, (D) Chicago:
"If the president is truly sincere about wanting to help. there are a number of things that the federal government is uniquely qualified to do that we could use his help with, and they all revolve around the fact that we have way too many illegal guns on our streets."
4. SOUNDBITE (English) Mayor Lori Lightfoot, (D) Chicago:
"He could fully fund the ATF (Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms) here in Chicago. He could fully fund additional prosecutors to focus on gun violence cases. He could empower the ATF to actually do what they're saying they're supposed to do, which is go after illegal gun sales, go after federally licensed gun dealers that aren't doing their job, are selling to people that they know are straw purchasers that have no intent whatsoever to possess those guns and turn them over in a parking lot to the real person who's going to take those guns. These are some easy, simple things that the president could do. He could make sure that we close the gun show loophole. We could pass universal background checks. He could make sure that people that aren't allowed to fly don't get guns"
5. Mayor Lightfoot and others walking away following community event.
Chicago's mayor says she doesn't want federal forces intervening in her city's protests against racial injustice.
Lori Lightfoot, a Democrat, says she has great concerns with what has been happening in Portland, Oregon, where federal officers wearing no insignia have been firing tear gas and detaining people during ongoing demonstrations.
Top leaders in the U.S. House said Sunday they were "alarmed" by the Trump administration's tactics against protesters in Portland and other cities, including Washington, D.C.
They've called on federal inspectors general to investigate.
Lightfoot said at a community event in Chicago Monday that the White House should do more to fight violence in the city by helping to stem the flow of illegal guns.
