Black Chicago residents just made a demand that has far-left Brandon Johnson spitting mad

One of the biggest mistakes a politician can make is to alienate the group of people who elected you.

But sometimes politicians break this rule out of blind ideology and risk major consequences.

Now black Chicago residents just made a demand that has far-Left Brandon Johnson spitting mad.

Chicago mayor Brandon Johnson is, without a doubt, a man of the Left.

Whether it’s his cautioning residents not to blame out of control teenage vandals and perpetrators of assault or favoring lenient sentences for hardened thugs, no one would ever mistake Johnson for being one to favor law and order.

What is arguably one of his biggest blind spots though is illegal immigration.

Joe Biden’s failure to secure our nation’s southern border has led to a crisis.

Millions of illegal immigrants have crossed into the United States over the last three years.

As the illegals have arrived in Texas, Governor Greg Abbott (R) has bused thousands of these newcomers to blue cities across the United States, all cities that have had politicians proclaim each to be “sanctuary cities” for illegal immigrants.

Tens of thousands have arrived in Chicago alone over the past few years.

Abbott’s gambit to essentially bring the border to the blue cities whose politicians have pretended it didn’t exist has had far reaching consequences and has put Democrats on the defensive for their disastrous policies.

Former Johnson supporters feel betrayed

Now, some of the very same people (black Chicagoans) who were instrumental in Brandon Johnson’s primary victory over former Mayor Lori Lightfoot are livid at Johnson’s refusal to consider their disapproval of his “open door” policy for illegal immigrants.

Because of the massive influx of immigrants, shelters have been houses in converted warehouses and are living in very poor conditions.

But as more illegal immigrants arrive, the city has begun placing these illegal immigrants in other locations.

One of those areas was a field house at Amundsen Park and because it has been repurposed, resident kids can no longer use the facility for recreation.

Parents are furious and have protested, so far to no avail.

It’s gotten so bad that in a recent poll, Brandon Johnson’s approval rating among city residents registered at an anemic 28%.

Government employee Cata Truss filed a lawsuit against the city of Chicago over the crisis.

Resident: Get rid of sanctuary city status and come up with a better plan

Truss said, “There is no moneys to take care of the migrants, nor is there moneys to take care of the people that are there. And so we have a mess on our hands. This is the sentiment from the city of Chicago: We would like to have our status as a sanctuary city removed. We would also like to see a better plan in place.”

This sentiment has the potential to spiral into a four-alarm fire for Democrats this Fall if it continues to spread.

In an interview with MSNBC’s Katy Tur, Truss said, “Democratic Party, we are watching you. We are disappointed. We are angry. We are offended. And we feel like we are being mistreated, misused. and disrespected. We will not continue to be disrespected by the Democratic Party. As I said yesterday, and I’ll say today and tomorrow, if you are an independent candidate, Green Party candidate, Republican candidate, now is your time in this city.”

Whether Democrats are truly in danger in Chicago is an open question but the concern for the party is that a similar sentiment against open borders craziness in more traditionally evenly divided communities could lead to an electoral rout in favor of Republicans in November.

If that occurs, Democrats from President Joe Biden on down to Mayor Brandon Johnson and others will have no one to blame but themselves.
