LIKE IT OR NOT: KANSAS CITY RESOLUTION SUPPORTS DACA AND DREAMERS!!!



The debate over DACA vs. The Border Wall is heating up amid ongoing outrage regarding "sh*thole countries" and the real world implications of "America First" policy.

From a recent Council session, check this important resolution and LOCAL perspective sponsored by Mayor Sly along with Council members Barnes Jr, Canady, Shields, Justus, Wagner, Taylor, Fowler, McManus, Reed & Lucas on DACA . . .

The important passages highlighted by TKC . . .

Recognizing the contributions of young people impacted by the repeal of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program.

WHEREAS, the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, which allows undocumented immigrants who were brought to the United States as minors (DREAMers) to receive a renewable two-year period of deferred action from deportation and eligibility for a work permit, has been rescinded, leaving nearly 800,000 DREAMers who met strict age, residency and education criteria, and who did not pose a threat to public safety with an uncertain future; and

WHEREAS, DREAMers have provided confidential information to the federal government, making them vulnerable to aggressive government raids, detention centers, and life-altering deportations; and

WHEREAS, the Greater Kansas City Chamber of Commerce held a roundtable highlighting the contributions of DREAMers in our area. More than 6,439 Missourians are currently eligible for DACA. 91.2% of them are employed, contributing $6.6 million to state and local taxes and $11.1 million to federal taxes. The Chamber endorses a quick and permanent solution to support economic growth in our area; and

WHEREAS, the City of Kansas City, Missouri is a welcoming city and values its ethnic, racial, linguistic, and socio-economic diversity which contributes to our strength and prosperity and we stand committed to ensuring that all our residents can live and pursue their livelihoods in peace and prosperity; NOW, THEREFORE,

BE IT RESOLVED BY THE COUNCIL OF KANSAS CITY:

That the Mayor and Council recognize the contributions of young people impacted by the repeal of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals . . .

And does the Council take a position on whether Pluto should be counted as a planet? Or whether there is ever an end to the value of pi?

Keep those wacko resolutions coming! We'd rather you stay busy with such nonsense than give our tax money away to your favorite developers.

This city council needs to focus on important stuff like firing that ass hat Troy Schulte.

We need to seize any assets they have before we send them back to Shitholexico.

Before we send them back, we need to brand them like cattle right on their foreheads to make them easy to spot if they try to get back in.

They got quality educations and job training in the US. Now send them back to Mexico and let them share their knowledge and talents to improve Mexico.
