TKC MUST READ!!! KCMO CONGRESSMAN CLEAVER SHARES POWERFUL STATEMENT AMID HUMANITARIAN BORDER CRISIS!!!



Tonight Democratic Prez contenders polished up their Spanish whist an American humanitarian crisis makes just about everybody look bad . . .

Background:

NPR: A Father And Daughter Who Drowned At The Border Put Attention On Immigration

WSJ: Migrant Crisis at Border Intensifies as Senate Passes Aid Bill

ABC: Senate overwhelmingly agrees to send emergency humanitarian relief to southern border

Accordingly, here's the statement from Kansas City's top ranking elected official . . .

Congressman Cleaver’s Statement on Emergency Humanitarian Aid at America’s Southern Border



(Washington, D.C.) – Congressman Cleaver released the following statement on passage of H.R. 3401, the Emergency Supplemental Appropriations for Humanitarian Assistance and Security at the Southern Border Act, which was passed by the House of Representatives last night by a vote of 230-195.

“I am, along with most Americans, utterly appalled by the conditions of the facilities where thousands of children, separated from their parents while migrating from desperate circumstances in Central America are being detained. After seeing the images and hearing the stories of the family separations and inhumane treatment these children are receiving from the United States government, I am sure we look like an iron-handed and heartless nation to the people around the globe.

“Yet these are not the values we claim to hold so dearly as a nation, nor can it be a perception we allow to take root across the world. America must always be a beacon for justice and a leader in the fight for human rights, and, when challenged with evidence to the contrary, we must have the national fortitude to reflect and respond with compassion.

“For that reason, last night, I voted for emergency humanitarian aid to rectify the barbaric conditions that have traumatized thousands of migrant children and rightfully outraged Americans all over the country. This funding will go towards providing these children with adequate food, sanitation, and other basic necessities, while funding alternative solutions to the mass detention of asylum seekers that is at the root of this humanitarian crisis.

“I am under no false pretenses that this remedy will satisfactorily address all the issues our nation faces at the border, and I will continue to push for further congressional oversight as well as a truly bipartisan and comprehensive immigration bill. However, this was an immediate action to rectify the human rights abuses that are currently occurring at our border facilities and sends an important message to the rest of the world that America will not stand for such treatment. Now, I call on my colleagues in the Senate to do what is right and pass this bill.

^^^ Maybe but there's also a very good chance that some of these very same immigrants will take jobs from people inside his district.

Has Cleaver ever paid back his loans on the Carwash?

What is Rep. Sharice Davids doing? I wish she would be more visible in Kansas and provide more leadership. It's obvious that something needs to be done and the Republicans even voted for this. I think it's part of border security overall. We want the borders to be safe and orderly. So for most of the Democratic Party has just obstructed. I respect the Congressman for taking on the issue and funding Homeland Security. The money has been needed for quite some time and maybe now the Democrats will finally realize that security means safety at the border.

The man who drowned with his daughter should never have taken that kind of risk. Unconscionable.

Revrun Carwash says he is APPALLED at the BORDER facilities' condition, but couldn't care less about the APPALLING conditions of blight and murder momentum within the BORDERS OF HIS DISTRICT!!! said...

Sheeeet, let's welcome some migrants to Killa Shitty. Bring in as many as it will take to fix the whole metro's potholes, and sinkholes, and crap sidewalks, and busted bridges, and to renovate blighty houses, and to cut overgrown grass, and to keep curbside trash service on schedule, and to do all the work that the welfare bums won't do. Get those bums outta here with reparation payments in the form of one way tickets to Wakanda, or wherever they choose in Africa. Carwash can go back and stay there.

If they never crossed the border ILLEGALLY, they wouldnt be in this situation, and I dont feel sorry for them just as I dont feel sorry for all the mother fuckers in jail because they did something illegal, because when you do something illegal there is a price to pay!!. We have AMERICANS living in worse conditions in our own country than those on the boarder who crossed illegally!!! Democrates dont want the wall, but place blame when shit happens because there isnt one!!! Thats fucked up!!! Demofucks love drama, and cant wrap their tiny minds around real reality!!

The cleave was of the belief that there was no crisis when President Trump was saying there was one, now since a father and daughter have died (they have been dying all along) and it made national news, the dems plan on making this this trumps problem when they have been ignoring it all along. The whole reason these people are dying is the dummocraps have failed to deal with the issues because they hate trump. You people are completey stupid if you think otherwise.

Immigrants do not take jobs. More people means more demand for goods & services, which means more jobs. It's a false notion that there are a finite number of jobs to be had. The number of jobs is a function of the number of people.

We are failing our moral duty to our fellow man, in this case children. There is no justification for the travesty of the concentration camps. Children are no one's enemies & no threat to this country. I don't want to hear that children are criminals. It's absurd.

Any one notice how smart the cleave thinks he is after some tragedy has happened? If he was so smart why didn’t he do something before the tragedy happened?

What is your obsession about "illegal". Change the law, so it's no longer illegal. You're equating trespassing with real crimes. Crossing the border is a crime in name only, & can't be equated with murder, robbery, rape, etc.

Shut up bLIEron, your stupidity is astounding, your whole party is at fault for this disaster.

Quit plagiarizing someone else’s comments, it just makes you look more retarded than you already are.

Yes Byron, your party knew this was going on but until someone was brave enough to show the deaths In pictures you and your ilk was denying the crisis at the border, you should be ashamed of yourselves for creating this mess from the beginning for what? To prove some stupid point that you don’t like trump, you would rather people die than admit trump was right, you people are sick.

If you love illegals so much and believe that every one of them are innocent , hard working and people only wanting to improve our country, Completely sponsor them with your own finances. Sign a Waiver stating that you PERSONALLY will provide all health care, housing, education, jobs, retirement, social programs and criminal responsibility. NOTHING keeps a human from adopting an illegal. Do it, put YOUR MONEY and your liability where your mouth is. Most likely you are not good at floating your own Canoe- Got Assistance ? why yes you do...LOL

"utterly appalled by the conditions of the facilities"


Cleaver has been a congressman for how long and he is just now getting appalled? If the father had stayed home with his child they both might be a little poor but alive.

Byron you ignorant slut;

They don't create a healthy demand they create a drain on the existing system much like you do. Illegally entering a country is a crime almost the whole world over. If these people would go through the proper channels to come to America there would be no need for emergency humanitarian money. There would be no need for a wall or detention camps. We have had a great immigration policy for many and I mean many years but the clown show in politics known as democraps have failed to see to it's enforcement and think we the citizens of America all owe the world a huge ass favor to let all this riff raff come live here.

Is the cleave utterly appalled at his own party who encouraged these people to flock here by the hundreds of thousands just to fuck with trump? Cleave and his ilk created this mess and are trying to blame everybody else but themselves.

Can cleaver do anything besides collect money for his failed jazz museum? He talks a big game for us locals but in the end he does nothing to truly help anybody but himself.

Cleaver is supposed to be a leader. We all know this is not true...he just holds a leadership position because KC voters are so fucking dumb. Its why we have 1000 murders per mayor. This comment makes him weak...not compassionate. Why hasnt he done anything about this? More importantly, why has he prevented anything from happening? Trump and the republicans have put forward many bills to help this and plans to stop this from happening. Cleaver says no. Cleaver and the dems are using the illegals as political props. Its disgusting. Cleaver and all the dems should have a viable plan - one that republicans and americans will support - on the table in one week...or all take turns sucking Trumps dick until they do. Cleaver - you have been in congress for 7 terms...this is your fault.

Obama warned something like this would happen: “Do not send your children to the borders,” he said. “If they do make it, they'll get sent back. More importantly, they may not make it.”

The Democrats did nothing about it then and they are doing nothing about it now. To them, the border crisis is no more than a chance for some really good photo ops.

You're unfortunately correct geezer-shit eater, or would you be referred to as a code kiddie (not that you have any practical code design capability). Your generation, and your party don't have any concept of a Nation, civil society, law and order that our Western values molded into the greatest Nation the world has ever seen. And thus you want to destroy it.

8:32 - do you have a source for that quote, besides Donald Trump?

Super Dave, you really think this guy should've just stayed home and everything would be cool, he'd just be a little poor? He just woke up one day and said "you know what, pack up what you can carry honey and we'll start walking 1000+ miles to the US border". Who the fuck does that Dave? Oh yeah, someone in a desperate situation that fears for their life probably. That seems logical Dave, doesn't it. I know it's the go to talking point that these people are drains on the system but they wouldn't have qualified for shit for assistance had they gotten in. Next thing you're going to tell me is this guy was wise enough to steal an identity. No, this guy probably would've been standing outside a home depot doing day labor or working in a field doing jobs that your typical American does not want.

Great immigration policy? Seriously? Pretty much everyone under the sun is in agreement that the system in broken.

And the fact is, there was a bi-partisan backed immigration solution that was crafted under Obama that was killed by xenophobic members of the Congress and Senate. And another fact is, ANYTHING that is crafted today will be killed by the turtle McConnell. The guy won't deal at all....with anything. Yet, here's Trump blaming Democrats for everything. Nevermind he had two years of total legislative control and accomplished shit beyond a tax cut that is only running up our deficits.

What is the best way to handle migrant crisis...

Arm them with ways to fight in their own country. All countries that don't allow citizens to have access to weapons end up fleeing in fear.

All these people fleeing are not from Spanish speaking countries. Many from Africa and middle East countries they want money and jobs, homes and tons of free health care and benefits.



opening up bank accounts, and big cars and trucks over populating the schools and taking over entire communities once inhabited by real Americans.

The opportunity to come to America right has been overshadowed by sneaky Pete crawl over border tactics. A slap in face to those who do it right and legal.

Lots of lawn care services, hotels, restaurants, construction taken over by illegals.

Allegedly Warren Buffett subsidary companies summit homes uses many of these folks to build homes. Many speak no English.

Allegedly lots of payday loans banks and check cashing places new source of income for businesses allowing accounts to be opened by Folks who have no ssa number along with paying tons of cash for cars and homes.

Go to any 7.11 store or western union and see millions daily sent back to foreign countries tax free.

There should be a limit on these anually. Money should be circulated here where it was made.


Wow..
Americans aren't given the same opportunity if the have a issue and forced to pay more for credit.

Property taxes going up to subsidise schools taking in illegal immigrants.

Most of them pay nothing in system receiving cash payments and tips they keep getting ahead faster than real Americans.

Amazing how people have tracking on phones cars and for pets.. why not use this same technology for all illegals and migrants coming to America.

Then when they don't comply they can be deported asap.

Many don't show up at court and disappeared for years have kids and then set up their own country habits that they fleed from setting up their own countries in usa with no alligence to America.

There places where they could be removed to old uncommissioned ships and military bases America owns in other countries. Cargo planes could do this.

Countries that own property and investments in America would be seized and sold to pay for their citizens to recoup cash for care.

This would stop migrant flow.

Amazing many of the politician's will allow abortions to kill babies for American women.

But so freaking concerned about migrant children of other folks who clearly endanger their kids and rented kids to sneaky Pete sneak over the border.

American not and must not continue to allow this.. all are welcome that do this right...only them.

Wisdom must be used to do this.

Compassion must be used to do this.

Again they are not all fleeing because of violence it's for economic reasons. Many are young folks so where's their grand parent and parents....still there like they should be.

Shut down job pipe line sweep cell phones to see whose encouraging this.

Let those come here that do it right..give the jobs and benefits to those who do it right...welcome those who do it right..and want to be a real American in every way.

Learn the constitution and the history. Again the d.c. politician crowd should dole out of their personal millions and buy beds and items for migrants...

charity begins at home friends.
