"The Trump Administration will not let the bloodshed go on; we can not accept these levels of violence", Sessions said in a statement on Friday afternoon.
"That's why, under President Trump's strong leadership, we have created the Chicago Gun Strike Force and are sending 20 more permanent ATF agents to Chicago, reallocating federal prosecutors and prioritizing prosecutions to reduce gun violence, and working with our law enforcement partners to stop the lawlessness". "He is here to help people".
The pace of murders in Chicago is on track with figures from past year, which was the city's deadliest in two decades.
In 2016, the number of murders in Chicago exceeded 760, a jump of almost 60 percent, and was more than NY and Los Angeles combined.
Trump has tweeted about Chicago in the past, in January he said, "If Chicago doesn't fix the awful "carnage" going on, 228 shootings in 2017 with 42 killings (up 24% from 2016), I will send in the Feds!". Chicago Police Department can not tackle this issue by itself.
The tweet came ahead of a press conference announcing a new "Strike Force" - a collaboration between the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives bureau and the Chicago Police Department.

"Six months ago we made it clear that we would welcome additional federal support, and six months later we appreciate the 20 new ATF agents that are now arriving", Adam Collins, a spokesperson for Mayor Rahm Emanuel, said in an email.
Chicago police Superintendent Eddie Johnson said in a statement "we are foundationally changing the way we fight crime in Chicago".
The task force will work with the Chicago police department's Organized Crime Bureau and the ATF's Chicago field office. The new agents will join the roughly 35 to 40 ATF agents who are already there as part of an initiative formulated in November, when former President Barack Obama was still in office.
Never mind that the Chicago Police Department has earned a reputation as one of the most brutal and racist in the United States.
The police department said it would welcome help from the newly formed team.
