Residents of Chicago’s South Side are sick and tired of the epidemic of violence in their community—and for good reason. This year alone, 1,080 people have been shot and wounded in the Windy City, while 184 have been killed. To make matters worse, President Obama seems to be ignoring the problems plaguing his hometown, yet is catering to the tens of thousands of illegal immigrants crossing the border.

“[Barack] is gonna go down as being one of the worst presidents ever,” one angry South Side resident said at a protest in front of the Chicago Police Department last week. “President Barack needs to pay attention to Chicago, if he cannot pay attention to Chicago and the African-American community, he needs to resign.”
