FIRST ON FOX: Dr. John Boyd Jr., a fourth-generation farmer and civil rights activist, told Fox News Digital that Democrats have taken the Black vote “for granted” and that voters are concerned about President Biden’s age and fed up. of the situation that is collapsing on the southern border.

From a black standpoint, a lot of black people, including my son, have voted Democrat for a long time and it seems like when we raise issues like this, our votes are taken for granted,” Boyd told Fox News Digital while speaking of his unsuccessful efforts to meet directly with President Biden at the White House to discuss agricultural issues and debt relief for Black farmers.

Recent polls have shown that Biden is losing support of black voters and the Democratic lead with that group of voters in a recent Gallup poll is the “smallest Gallup has recorded in its polls dating back to 1999.”

“It’s totally unheard of, and I’ve been around, and I’ve met with presidents, Republicans and Democrats, every president since Jimmy Carter, I’ve visited them to talk about issues that are relevant to our national body, and this president hasn’t.” He invited us to the White House as I speak and speak with you today. “I haven’t received any and it’s Black History Month.”

Boyd explained that voters of all backgrounds expect the Biden administration to do more to secure the southern border.

“The border is still open,” Boyd said. “There is total chaos at the border. Here we allow people who are not American citizens to enter this country, we give them debit cards and money and we put them up in hotels.”

“And you know, I just described my rich history, both good and bad, my ancestors were slaves here on American soil, brought to the country by force, and here are these people who come to the US who are not citizens, and we are treating them better than American citizens.

What does that say about the most difficult occupation in the history of the country, which is agriculture?” Boyd asked.

Boyd told Fox News Digital that “if it were up to me” the “border would be closed.”

“We wouldn’t open the borders until we see what we can do about the chaos we have at the border,” Boyd said. “If I were president, I would close the border, simple as that, I don’t need an act of Congress to do it.

The White House previously told Fox News Digital that Boyd was invited to meet with top agriculture officials, including USDA Director Tom Vilsack, at a recent event, but was unable to attend.

“The president committed to meeting while we were at the WH for the 4th of July event 3 years ago,” Boyd told Fox News Digital in a statement. “The meeting was Biden’s suggestion. And so far there has NOT been one.”

“I am not interested in meeting with Vilsack. The issues I raised are relevant to a Biden response. Any minor political appointment will not be enough,” he continued.

The Biden campaign did not respond to a request for comment from Fox News Digital.
