AFRICANGLOBE – Residents from Chicago’s South Side expressed frustration Friday over President Obama’s attention to prioritizing the illegal immigrant crisis at the border over their city’s escalating violence.
During a protest outside the Chicago Police Department some residents called for the resignation of Mayor Rahm Emmanuel and Police Superintendent Garry McCarthy over their failure to address the violence – and even Obama’s as well, according to Rebel Pundit.
“Barack will go down as the worst president ever elected, Bill Clinton was the African-American President,” one resident told Rebel Pundit. “President Barack needs to pay attention to Chicago, if he cannot pay attention to Chicago and the African-American community, he needs to resign.”
Comparing their current life to that of slaves 400 years ago, another resident said, “We got the same results today.”
Already in July, 120 people have been shot and at least 26 killed in Chicago, including a pregnant young mother of five, prompting residents to organize the protest.
