In a recent city council meeting, Chicago Mayor Brandon Johnson faced severe criticism from black community voters over his proposal to allocate an additional $70 million in taxpayer funds to address the city's illegal immigration crisis.

The critics, many of whom were donning Trump campaign "MAGA hats," argued that the funds should instead be directed towards tax-paying neighborhoods grappling with escalating violent crime and overdose deaths.

P. Rae Easley, a resident of Chicago's west side, was among the vocal critics. "I'm asking y'all to use our tax money for our people," Easley implored, sporting a MAGA hat. She painted a grim picture of her community's struggles, saying, "We need it. We got people leaning. We got people rocking. We got overdosing. We got pass out lines. You live on the west side of Mayor Johnson. You know exactly what I'm talking about. We need the money for us."

Easley's impassioned plea highlighted the surge in crime and overdose deaths that have besieged Chicago's black communities. She vehemently opposed the notion of allocating funds to non-taxpaying illegal immigrants, funds she believes her community desperately needs. Easley advocated for the money to be channeled into an opioid fund to tackle the crisis.

"We need opioid treatment on the west side of Chicago. We are the headquarters of the cartel, and everybody in here knows it. So, I'm asking y'all to say 'No.' Put these people on the back burner, and put the money back in the opioid fund. We need that money," Easley asserted.

Mayor Johnson, a staunch defender of the city's sanctuary policies, is seeking alderman approval for the additional funding in a vote scheduled for Friday. This is despite the city's recent investment of $300 million in housing, food, and medical care for the recently arrived illegal immigrants, as reported by Fox News.

Another resident, also wearing a MAGA hat, voiced her concerns to city council members about the crime surge in cities across the US, attributing it to illegal immigrants. "They're showing up here in New York and Chicago attacking people in the streets," she claimed, according to Fox News. "The police are fighting with them in the… shelters that you guys are funding."

Easley, appearing on Fox & Friends, described Mayor Johnson's proposal as "the most disrespectful thing we've ever encountered in our lives." She expressed her resentment, saying, "We've been paying property taxes in the city for generations, and to see them so openly give our money to people who don't deserve it is very insulting."

Easley thanked the mayor for uniting the city against his progressive agenda, likening the unity to that seen during the '96 Bulls era. She predicted a significant voter turnout in the upcoming November elections, with the city united against Johnson's progressive agenda.

"We are looking forward to bringing back Donald John Trump Sr. as our 47th president," Easley told Fox & Friends. "He's the only president who has a plan to close the southern border, which is going to cut off the pipeline of human and drug trafficking that's flooding the West side of Chicago, and we cannot wait to get you back in office. Mr. President, please come see us in Chicago."
