Dem Chicago mayor invests $17 million in 'black and brown' businesses to make meals for illegal immigrants

"The $17 million investment for these 18 black and brown small businesses... really captures what I call the 'soul of Chicago'." 


Democrat Mayor Brandon Johnson said that investing $17 million in “18 black and brown small businesses” to feed illegal immigrants is what captures the "soul of Chicago." 

In a press conference, Johnson is seen telling reporters, "The $17 million investment for these 18 black and brown small businesses... really captures what I call the 'soul of Chicago'." 

Reports on the statement from Johnson last Tuesday said that the investment is part of a partnership with community groups to make sure that illegel immigrants flooding the city do not go hungry. 

"I actually think it's quite fitting that we are in this wonderful small business because it has been black and brown small businesses that have stepped up in this moment, in this crisis, to respond to these families who are arriving here," the mayor added.  

The city of Chicago, the Greater Chicago Food Depository, as well as BJ's Market, among others, have put together the $17 million to go towards "black and brown" businesses.  

Businesses who were a part of the effort reportedly saw a jump in revenue from the investment and were able to fill more food orders for the foreign nationals in Chicago.  

Earlier in February when Johnson was asked about the effects of the border crisis on the city, he lashed out at reporters.  

“Do you not understand that you have not had a mayor like me?" he exclaimed. "I have a wife, I have children, they have schedules, and plus, we still have public safety that we have to address, we still have the unhoused that we have to address, I still have a budget that I have to address, and I’m doing all of that with a black wife raising 3 black children." 

The Chicago mayor has previously placed blame on the immigrant situation in the city on Texas for sending more illegals to the area.
