President Barack Obama's attention to the illegal immigration crisis, which could lead him to issue executive orders early next week to delay deportations and grant work permits to as many as 6 million migrants, has soured many of his core voters: African-Americans.

Many blacks, who twice voted for Obama in record numbers to elect him — and keep him — as the nation's first African-American president, are angry that he has neglected the problems facing inner cities while working on the border crisis.

These big-city ills include chronic black unemployment, poor housing conditions, steep prices for food and services, low high-school graduation rates, and high crime rates.

"Black people are being played," Herman Cain, the 2012 Republican presidential candidate, told Newsmax. "They have been taken for granted by Democrats for decades. Now they've reached a boiling point with this whole crisis on the border, and some of them are speaking out."

Cain and other African-American conservatives charge that Obama "manufactured this crisis" through a 2012 executive order that created the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program.

The DACA ended the threat of deportation for as many as 670,000 illegals between the ages of 15 and 31 who were brought to the U.S. before their 16th birthday. In June, the administration extended the program for two more years.

"We've got a real crisis in every major inner city in this country," Cain said. "They've done exactly nothing to understand the problem, let alone do anything about it."

Anita MonCrief, board member of the Black Conservatives Fund, told Newsmax that African-Americans have long been "sour on Obama."

"This is just the first time they've been fed up enough to say something about it.

"People were afraid to speak out because it was unpopular to be black and not be a supporter of Obama," MonCrief said. "The immigration crisis has brought all of this to a head to the point where people feel that they are compelled to speak out."

The community's first outcry came on Independence Day, when angry African-Americans confronted pro-immigration sympathizers in Murrieta, Calif. Two hundred residents blocked busloads of illegal minors who were being brought to a Border Patrol station in that city. Six people were arrested.

Too little, too late.
