This local push back comes at a time when the Prez Trump Administration has threatened to deploy border patrol to sanctuary cities.
Here's the word and a link to the local effort . . .
No Child Detention in KC!
Recently, a company that calls itself Vision Quest has attempted to buy and rent property in Kansas City, Missouri for the purpose of running a for-profit detention center for migrant children.
