United States Senator Mark Kirk plans to join Illinois Congressman Bobby Rush Thursday on a tour of Chicago's Englewood neighborhood that is often plagued by gang violence.

Thursday's tour is a result of harsh criticism Kirk received earlier this year when he called for the arrest of up to 18,000 disciple gang members.

A spokesperson for rush says the tour is an effort to address urban violence and spur economic growth in the Englewood community.
