Kansas City Youngster Refugee Detention Center Coming Soon?!?!?
We talked about this detention effort earlier this week . . . Here's worthwhile follow-up from The Pitch:
Pitch: Developer eyes Troost for immigrant child detention center
"VisionQuest is working with a local developer to open “a residential shelter for unaccompanied alien children” at the site of the former Kindred Hospital, 8701 Troost, which has been vacant since their operations ended two years ago.
"The developer, BID Group, is seeking a special use permit that would allow them to build out the detention center for VisionQuest, a private for-profit company who runs such facilities across the country."
Counterpoint . . .
The petition against this move has earned nearly 2,000 signatures.
