LOS ANGELES — Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, who was recently given authority to oversee the city’s anti-gang programs, unveiled the outline of his $24 million gang-fighting strategy Monday during his third “State of the City” address.

The speech at LAPD headquarters capped two months of debate over how the city should best tackle gang prevention and intervention programs.

Re-enforcing his commitment to public safety at a time when the city is facing a projected $406 million deficit and higher trash fees, Villaraigosa gave his speech surrounded by police officers and firefighters.

“Public safety is the first obligation of government. When you don’t have safe streets, everything falls apart,” Villaraigosa said. “People become isolated. Kids turn into prisoners. Jobs evaporate. Families struggle just to survive. Public safety is the foundation of everything we are trying to build in the city of Los Angeles.”

LA Mayor Calls for Increased Anti-Gang Programs - NAM

What a joke this clown is. Why do these sanctuary mayors think that Americans have unlimited dollars to give them in the form of tax increases to subsidize the cost and presence of tax draining illegal aliens? Even Chicago's mayor Daley has finally seen the light (after being sued by DHS) and allowed ICE to start cleaning up Chicago.

What are the taxpayers of California waiting for?

Give it time.............

Again: it may be the economy that triggers the backlash against the illegals.

I can only hope that you are right. Here's hoping it doesn't cease to exist before they get around to it.

He is truly delusional if he believes gangs are the only problem LA needs to address. LA has had a gang problem for years. They need to tackle the illegal alien invasion if they really want to improve that city and reduce their budget deficit. Of course, Tony “we clean your toilets” Villaraigosa, would NEVER admit to illegal aliens being a drain on tax funds.

Come on, JDubsMom . . . would you expect otherwise from a Scumbag Pandering Politician who is also an ANCHOR BABY and previous gang membership would not surprise me one bit?

Yep, he used to be a real bad-ass with tattoos and everything. "Born to raise hell" is what he had tatted across his forearms if I am not mistaken.

He is the worst mayor our town has ever had - ever! I hope to God he never gets reelected so he can go back to his calling - cleaning toilets! And I hope he takes his smirky little weasel Fabian Nunez with him.

as an LA resident i would say that the GANG problem is paramount among issues to be adressed. and within this crackdown on gangs, citizenship should be asked. but you guys follishly compound illegals with gang members.

you guys are too blinded in your ignorance to see a real problem or real solution.

deal with the gangs man. they are the worst of the worst. not the illegals. the gangs control the drugs. they control the guns. they control the jails. and sadly they control some of the streets.
when you start getting at them, you will nab those people with drugs, with immigration violations, with domestic violence records, with all kinds of rap sheets.

GO AFTER THE GANGS!!!

Villagayrosa is not a clown tho. dont know if he will be re-elected, but hes not a clown. J, i really think you should be more selective in what you post. the more you say, the less they listen.

this is just a rant with a tenous link to immigration.

let the mayor focus on gangs. its important.

i live here. you guys are outsiders.

live from florence and graham
