A group of Chicago citizens held a press conference and spoke about their grievances with Democrats and asked for Donald Trump or Republicans to come and talk to them.(see clip below)
Dom Lucre posted a clip on X where a speaker can be heard saying in the clip below "Let's have a meet with the Republican Party. If Trump want to come to town, come and meet with us Trump 2024. We are not going to stand by. Stand idly by. Why? You starve our community".
In one video clip posted to X (formerly Twitter) by the Citizens Free Press, a resident can be heard saying "any Republican candidate in the city of Chicago, now is your time, because we are done with the Democratic Party".
In another clip speakers talk about the financial support being given to migrants in Chicago that tax-paying citizens who are struggling don't receive.
While Black Americans have historically been a strong base of support for the Democratic Party, there are signs of serious discontent with the Biden administration over its immigration policies.
Black Chicagoans expressed concerns about the Democrat party's focus on immigrants, arguing that it comes at the expense of Black communities.
This is about our people demanding the resources, just as you giving these people, these newcomers who are walking into the country. How do you take a new group of people that have paid no taxes, can't vote, and you put them in front of the voter? And so, we say this to you, mayor, governor, president- if you think that they're that powerful, that you have the acquiescence and answers to them over us, then you tell them to vote for you next election. You tell them to support your Democratic National Convention. We going to show you how we feel about the Democratic National Convention. If you think you going to have a peaceful Democrat National Convention in Chicago while our people are starving Stay tuned. Stay tuned. We don't care if you're Republican, Democrats or whatever, as long as you're about closing these borders, we can support you. And anybody who is about open borders, we're against you, plain and simple. (Source) Citizens Free Press
