“You want to take the little scraps of resources we have and put us at the bottom of the barrel? That’s not fair!”
People in Chicago are continuing to melt down over the influx of illegal immigrants to the city. Residents are extremely angry about the mayor’s plan to convert a local park’s field house into immigrant housing.
FOX News reports:
Chicago residents rip mayor, officials for plan to house migrants in local field house: ‘Ain’t having that’
Chicago residents protested Democrat Mayor Brandon Johnson’s plan to house a large influx of illegal immigrants in a local field house this week.
Frustrated locals gathered for a community meeting inside Amundsen Park field house in the city’s Galewood neighborhood on Tuesday evening to speak out against the mayor’s plan to house new migrants being bussed into the city after a protest earlier that afternoon.
City officials have warned the public that Chicago could start receiving up to 25 buses of migrants a day, for which Johnson is seeking makeshift housing at the field house…
One resident said, “You want to take the little scraps of resources we have and put us at the bottom of the barrel? That’s not fair!”
She continued: “A lot of these young boys, they don’t have fathers so a lot of these coaches, they are their fathers. They spend part of their weekend here along with during the week, that keeps them in a safe place, it gives them mentorship, it shows them discipline.”
One gentleman urged city officials to “Turn the buses around! Turn the buses around!” Another man added, “We’re not anti-migrants, but it should not be on our backs.”
The boys who would lose their space were there in uniform.
This SICKENS me!!!

In this clip, the angry residents are chanting at city leadership, “You work for us!” You know what’s funny? I remember hearing this exact same chant during the Tea Party protests of 2010.

It’s amazing how the decision to send illegal immigrants to these cities has completely reframed the issue.
