Dear Mr. President,
We pray this letter finds you in the best of health and spirit with wishes for a Happy Belated Birthday.
The Martin Luther King Republicans feel that Chicago’s Black community is under attack by the terrorist group ANTIFA, Latin Kings, and other illegal Mexican gangs. This happened during and in the aftermath of the George Floyd riots. We are appealing to your Administration to enact The Donald Trump Black Community Restoration and Recovery Act to assist in rebuilding after ANTIFA provided rioters bricks, spray paint, Molotov cocktails, and other destructive equipment that have decimated blocks after blocks.
Your honor, this damage has created food deserts, limited access to working ATMs, closed pharmacies and banks, limited postal, and other essential services. We are requesting that the Department of Justice send ICE to protect Black American citizens who are being targeted by illegal immigrant gangs and cannot move freely throughout the city without fear of being pulled out of cars and beat up, stabbed, or even killed. We feel that the DOJ should investigate and prosecute those committing these horrific acts as a hate crime.
Lastly, we humbly request that you come to Chicago to tour this damage on the south and west sides and join us at the New Canaanland Missionary Baptist Church, 5957 South Peoria, in Chicago, Illinois. Pastor Pervis Thomas has extended to you an open invitation to bring your bible and pray with his church for healing and restoration in the neighborhood of Englewood, city of Chicago, and the United States of America. New Canaanland MBC was among the churches that remained open and held services during the unconstitutional church closure and was at the forefront of the Re-Open Illinois Right to Worship campaign.
While many did not vote for you in Chicago, Mr. President, I did, and I am proud of that. Let’s show them that MAGA loves Black America.
Thank you for your time and attention.
Jimmy Lee Tillman, II
