Chicago Mayor Brandon Johnson’s call for reparations to reduce violent crime has raised questions regarding its efficacy.

Is he suggesting that only black people commit violent crimes?

Additionally, the city is facing financial issues due to the influx of illegal border crossers, causing Johnson to tap millions in COVID funds to address this issue.

While speaking to network anchor Poppy Harlow on “CNN This Morning” Wednesday, Johnson acknowledged the high crime rate in Chicago and declared that the “full force of government” is required to solve it, including allocating $500,000 for reparations programs.

Harlow prompted his answer by noting that according to Chicago Police Department statistics, while the murder rate has decreased from 2022, all other forms of violent crime are up 17% from a year ago.

He then spoke about city funds being diverted to providing reparations for its African American community. “I’ve added a half a million dollars for restoration and reparations to address, again, the cycle of violence, which looks like school closings, closing of mental health facilities, of which I’ve invested in now. We’re going to open up two mental health clinics that were closed from two previous administrations ago.”
