TKC SUNDAY SPECIAL!!! KANSAS CITY MOVING TOWARD 'SANCTUARY CITY' STATUS AS PREZ TRUMP PROPOSES RELOCATING REFUGEE MIGRANTS!!!
For the record and despite a great deal of misinformation on social media. Kansas City has never formally declared itself a sanctuary city. But in practice and among local elected leaders there's no interest (read: profit) in working to enforce tougher immigration policy.
One more time for the cheap seats and in summation:
Kansas City is not a sanctuary city, or, in other words, a municipal jurisdiction that limits cooperation with government when it comes to enforcing immigration laws. But, given our high murder count, de-facto weed legalization by the Jackson County Prosecutor's Office and Laissez-faire approach toward all manner of corporate misdeeds: This town clearly isn't really uptight about following the rules.
Big picture . . .
Kansas City's history and greatness was achieved way of organized crime exercising an embarrassing level of control over our politics. That same level of corruption exists today only now it's mostly decided by lawyers who only occasionally (allegedly) get gunned down for their controversial tactics.
Just to be clear the culture of Kansas City proper has never had much respect for the law and some of this attitude can explain a mass migration to the suburbs where the middle-class can enjoy the illusion of safety, Democracy and other superstitions.
Now . . .
THE ADMINISTRATION OF MAYOR SLY JAMES AND BOTH OF HIS POTENTIAL SUCCESSORS REJECT HARDLINE MAGA BORDER WALL IMMIGRATION CRACKDOWN TACTICS!!!
Background . . .
In one of his most brazen acts as Kansas City Mayor, Sly James led a protest against Prez Trump immigration restrictions at the airport with bullhorn in hand.
And here's what the future holds . . .
As part of an economic and racial justice platform, Councilman Quinton Lucas has proposed a KCMO Municipal ID Card which will provide residents identification regardless of immigration status.
Council Lady Jolie Justus has a progressive history on the topic of support for illegal aliens in the United States . . .
One example out of many from her days as a state Senator:
Justus proposes bill to give children of undocumented immigrants in-state tuition
She's playing up down progressive Democratic reputation as the election moves closer. But it's clear her political record reveals a great deal of support for undocumented/illegal immigrants/aliens.
Accordingly . . .
AS PREZ TRUMP THREATENS TO FLOOD SANCTUARY CITIES WITH MIGRANTS, IT'S IMPORTANT TO NOTE THAT KANSAS CITY, MO LEADERS HAVE CONSISTENTLY OPPOSED THE PREZ ON HIS IMMIGRATION AGENDA!!!
And so we ask . . .
SHOULD KANSAS CITY WELCOME NEW FRIENDS AND NEIGHBORS?!?!
At the very least the flood of migrants and those seeking asylum might help Kansas City realize the fake numbers of visitors constantly touted by tourism officials.
