MAGA Hat-Wearing Black Chicago Residents Blast Democrat Mayor over Migrant-First Agenda

A group of black Chicago residents wearing MAGA hats turned up to a meeting at city hall to blast Democrat Mayor Brandon Johnson for prioritizing illegal aliens over his own vulnerable constituents.

Chicago residents dressed in pro-Trump hats tore into the “sanctuary” city’s mayor for allotting $70 million in taxpayer funds to care for illegal border crossers.

Concerned citizens spoke directly to Mayor Johnson on Wednesday.

During the gathering, officials were originally expected to vote on funding for migrant services in the Windy City.

Johnson, a radical progressive, has long defended the city’s “sanctuary” policies.

On Friday, he planned to get the aldermen to accept the requested funds to continue giving handouts to illegal aliens.

Johnson requested more funding despite the city having already blown $300 million on the crisis caused by Democrat President Joe Biden’s open border policies.

One woman, wearing a red “Make American Great Again” cowboy hat and a “Chicago RED” t-shirt slammed Johnson to his face during the meeting.

“We need that money in my neighborhood,” she told city officials.

“We need that money on my block.”

“So I’m asking ya’ll to use our tax money for our people, we need it,” she added.

However, the meeting ended without a vote.

The city’s aldermen deferred a decision on Brandon’s request for funds.

While frustrated residents insisted that the money is needed elsewhere, others warned the mayor that they will vote him out of office if the funds are spent on illegal migrants.

“Vote for the money for these immigrants today and we coming for those seats, you can believe that,” another woman said during the meeting.

Following the meeting, Johnson laughed about the citizen’s threatening to recall him.

Instead, he insisted that past mayors have done worse.

“We’ve had mayors close schools, we’ve had mayors who have shut down public housing,” he said.

“So any individual who is somehow insulted by this progressive agenda that is being led by one of the most diverse cabinets in the history of Chicago — I just call into question anyone who would be motivated to see this type of transformation disrupted,” Johnson added.

Johnson continued by trying to blame the so-called “extreme right wing” for the city’s problems.

The mayor claimed “extreme” Republicans are ‘intimidated by the fact that we’ve passed paid time off [for] thousands of workers.

“We’ve abolished sub-minimum wage, which has its roots in history in slavery.”

Currently, Johnson cannot be kicked out of office under Illinois state law.

State law only allows the governor to be recalled.

The mayor made it clear that he plans “to be here for the next 23 years.”

However, 58-year-old Dan Boland, a former technology salesman, has formed a political action group to raise money to challenge the state law.

Boland told Chicago Sun-Times that he has launched a petition to put a referendum on the November ballot.

He notes that it was not created to “hurt” Johnson, but was introduced to “help and empower” Chicago citizens.

“We can’t let Chicago circle the rim for another three years,” Boland said.

“We need to get out of this cycle and fix things… if [Johnson] can’t fix it, we need to get someone in there who can.”

Boland expressed that the people of Chicago are also concerned about the rampant crime that has taken over since the “sanctuary city” was flooded with illegal aliens.

“People can’t go out and even go to the grocery store without getting mugged,” Boland said.

“People can’t sell their tamales out on the street without getting accosted by people who are armed.”

“These are armed juvenile thugs.

“That’s one reason that just put it over the top for me.”

Mayor Johnson himself says the huge influx of migrants is unsustainable.

However, he claims he can’t turn them away because Chicago is a “sanctuary city.”

Johnson has blamed both the Biden administration and Texas for his city struggling to care for the about 15,000 illegals crammed into 28 migrant shelters across the city.

Texas Governor Greg Abbott has bused more than 25,300 migrants to Chicago since August 2022.
