Barack Obama: “In this new world that we live in we can’t isolate ourselves.We can’t hide behind a wall.”
In the meantime, his ten-feet wall for his Washington D.C. home just got finished. As for his Chicago home, neighbors are calling for gate and barricades blocking their street to be removed now that he’s no longer in office.
Obama’s real policy? “A wall for me; not for thee!”
Sitting alongside German Chancellor Angela Merkel, former President Obama lectured the current administration about its immigration policy Thursday.
While not mentioning President Trump by name, Obama made clear to whom he was leveling his criticism.
“In this new world that we live in we can’t isolate ourselves,” Obama said. “We can’t hide behind a wall.”
Obama’s Chicago neighbors are also begging Chicago leaders to take down the barriers that have been blocking their street and reopen it to the public because he is no longer in office.
DNA Info reported in February:
Leaders at KAM Isaiah Israel, the synagogue across the street from Barack Obama’s Chicago home, say the heavily secured block in Kenwood should be reopened to the public.
Interim Executive Director Debra Hammond said Monday the synagogue at 1100 E. Hyde Park Blvd. wants the gates and barricades that block Greenwood Avenue at Hyde Park Boulevard removed to send a message of openness and inclusivity.
“If we could have it the way we wanted it, it would be open at Hyde Park Boulevard,” Hammond told DNAinfo. “We want to be more of a place of sanctuary.”
