Chicago activist Ja'Mal Green tells Chris Hayes 
"Nobody has really said it, but his name is Rahm Emanuel. This mayor that we have in the city of Chicago does not care about black people. I want to put that on the record. ...We're walking past boarded up schools, boarded up houses, they're knocking down with red Xs with no plan to redevelop, mental health facilities shut down, the unemployment rate is the highest in Chicago than it is around the country. If you want to talk about violence, you've got to talk about the economics, not police." -- Washington Free Beacon
Cristina Jimenez, executive director of United We Dream
“This is clearly the first wave of attacks under the Trump administration, and we know this isn’t going to be the only one." -- Washington Post
 Gillian Christensen, spokeswoman for the Department of Homeland Security
"ICE dislikes the term 'raids,' and prefers to say authorities are conducting 'targeted enforcement actions.'” -- Washington Post
Obamacare opponent, Rep. Dave Brat (R-VA)
Says he doesn’t want to hold town halls because “since Obamacare and these issues have come up, the women are in my grill no matter where I go.” -- Think Progress
Donald Trump 
"Trust me, I’m like a smart person.” -- Answer Sheet
