Chicago, IL- Little Village the second magnificent mile on 26th street is one of the busiest corridors to generate money to the City of Chicago. It continues to plummet with businesses and store fronts continue to stay afloat.
Little Village continues to witness the outlandish destructive behavior of gang and gun violence that is costing lives and holding people hostage in their homes where they don’t want to shop on the strip.
Also threats immigration raids and deportations has caused panic and anxiety to many people from and out of area. Custom Enforcement deportation sweeps loom, business owners on 26th Street, the city’s second-highest grossing shopping district known for its eclectic mix of Mexican-owned shops and restaurants, are owned shops and restaurants, are reporting significant hits to their sales. With the Cook County States attorneys race we need someone to prosecute crime to the fullest and a candidate to advocate to keep families together because we are a sanctuary city to help keep 26th street blooming and to stay afloat.
On Sunday, residents and local politicians and candidates will walk in solidarity with the community with a mariachi band in unity to bring vigilance to the problems that are affecting business on the “second mag mile”.
